The Blue Stainless Steel Rolex Submariner...

I am a designer and a lifelong Rolex enthusiast/fanatic. For the last 25 years I kept looking at Rolex watches thinking to myself, why not do it in this color or that?

I am an advanced graphic artist (incase you didn't notice) and about 5 years ago, I first started playing in Photoshop and Illustrator with changing colors and details on watches. I always thought the stainless steel Rolex Submariner would look really cool with a blue bezel so I mocked up one as you can see in the second image of the LV Sub with a blue dial.

It turns out that many of the ideas for colors that I have come up with, Rolex actually made at one time or another. I just found this blue dial with matching blue bezel, Stainless Rolex Submariner and it looks so cool. I call these blue bezel watches "The Blueberry."

It is amazing how many rare and unusual Rolex watches exist in the world that I never new about!!!

This model also has nipple indices.  You have to click on the photo to check it out in detail:
