- The Kermit
First introduced in 2003 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner, the 16610LV included a black “maxi dial” last seen virtually two decades previously, as well as a green bezel, a first for the Sub.

Amazing what a little shade can do for pricing.
- The Hunk
Like the Kermit, yet greener! Initial launched in 2010, the 116610LV features a thicker situation than that of previous versions, and also, a striking green dial, in addition, to a green bezel. If you dig the beefier “every case;” however, desire a various tinted dial and do not want to pay a “greemium,” you remain in luck, this is the existing manufacturing situation for the Sea Dweller, Sub, as well as GMT Master II.
- The John Player Special
So, there are manual-wound Rolex Daytonas, and then there are exotic-dial “Paul Newman” Daytonas, and afterward, there’s this genuine inside-baseball-type thing– a ref. 6241 in gold with a black Paul Newman dial, as well as seconds counter demarcated in 15, 30, 45, as well as 60-second periods. The “John Player Special” moniker is a reference to the black, as well as gold livery of John Player Special cigarettes.
- The Jean-Claude Killy
Five references of the Dato-Compax, among Rolex’s most made complex watches, triple calendar chronographs, in this case, are collectively referred to as the “Killy”: the 4768, 4767, 5036, 6036, as well as the 6236. Why the nickname? In the 1960s, renowned skier Jean-Claude Killy became a Rolex ambassador after winning a number of titles, and though he never appeared wearing a Dato-Compax in any advertisements, he was claimed to own one.
