Marking another important debut for the firm and instant classic of its contemporary production, Rolex released the new Submariner ref. 126610LV in 2020, replacing the former iconic ref. 116610LV nicknamed the Hulk which, in turn, had replaced the 50th anniversary reference 16610LV, also known as the “Kermit”. The latter was source of inspiration for the newest model, recalling the black dial unlike the green on green configuration of the Hulk. Featuring a newly developed case design measuring 41 mm in diameter, the lugs have been redesigned with a slightly concave and slimmer profile than its predecessors and a new calibre 3525 with power reserve that has been extended to 70 hours compared to its previous 48 hours. The scratch-resistant green Cerachrom bezel was already introduced in the previous example and is highly appreciated considering its capability of granting more resistance and fewer damages, also conferring more vibrant color that could last longer. A luminescent capsule on the zero marker ensures legibility, no matter how dark the environment is. The bezel’s knurled edge is carefully designed to offer excellent grip under water, even with gloves. Known as “Starbucks” due to its obvious color schemes, the lot here offered is presented in incredible overall condition with no evident signs of use and complete with its full set of accessories.
