The 7UP Submariner...

In 2004 Rolex introduced the 50th Anniversary Edition Submariner (Model Number: 16610 LV) .  LV stands for "Lunette Verde."  This is one of my favorite Rolex watches.  It is different than the standard Rolex Submariner in three ways:
  1. It has a metallic green bezel
  2. It has Maxi Marker Indices
  3. It has a fatter or wider minute hand
The LV sub has many nicknames which include the Kermit, the 7Up Sub and the Starbucks Sub.  We will be spending a lot of time studying this beauty.  I absolutely LOVE this photo of the 7UP Sub.  I think it flawlessly captures the essence of the watch:
