Rolex Introduces All New LV Submariner
[Reference 116610 LV: Bracelet 97200]
Today at BaselWorld in Switzerland, in addition to the standard black Rolex Submariner, Rolex introduced an all-new Submariner LV with a green ceramic bezel insert and a green gold dial. This watch features the great Rolex Glidelock Bracelet.
I am officially dubbing this new green on green Submariner as the 7UP Submariner ;-) Its green dial is actually green gold, which is composed of gold mixed with aluminum to achieve the special shade of dark green. Rolex actually produces the dials themselves in their foundry.
One of the interesting features of both the black and the green Submariner models is the all-new ceramic bezel insert that has white-gold inlaid numbers which give the bezel a much more 3 Dimensional look, much more like the bezel insert on the Rolex Yacht-Master.
The green Submariner should be priced about $400 more than the black version and should cost around $7500 in U.S. Dollars. It should also be available for purchase in July.
