Submariner Kermit Ref 16610LV

Submariner Kermit

The Rolex Submariner is arguably the most successful and most popular watch in the world. Originally designed and created for the scuba diving market, this model now transcends far beyond to reach sport enthusiasts from football, soccer, bicycling, baseball, Golf, basketball, Hollywood celebrities, hip-hop musicians, boxer, racer, dancers and more…

Rolex unveiled the Rolex Submariner green 16610V in 2003 to celebrate the Submariner line’s 50th anniversary. The first F series has a Flat Four on the bezel, it is rare. Mint or NOS is $19,000. This special-edition Rolex was discontinued in 2010, making it a valuable collector’s piece for any Rolex enthusiast. The Rolex Submariner green 16610V model took the traditional features of the Submariner 16610 and elegantly played them up – the unidirectional rotatable diver’s bezel is green. The model presented owners with a more colorful anniversary edition option, as the watch dial is also the color green.

One of the Best Selling Submariner
Either Submariner Green 16610LV  Kermit is a collector’s piece, as each are limited-edition Rolex watches that are no longer in production. Collectors should plan to pay approximately $15,000 to $19,000 for a Kermit watch that is in mint condition. Even more for Flat Four. This is a fair price for such a unique timepiece, and experts agree the value of the anniversary watch will only increase over time. Investing in either the 16610V gives the owner a piece of Rolex history.

The early Flat Four is very collectible, next will be the grassy Green bezel B3.

It takes a while to catch the so called Flat Four, but the light green bezel B3 is eye Catching!

This is one that was made only in a few months of year 2006 in D series.

Batman, Daytona and Hulk's latest Price Update

Watch price is still unreasonable high in HK.

One episode, one Australian guy asked me price of Daytona Ceramic how much on Whatsapp, I told him that White is $160,000 , and he immediate replied me saying that What the FXXX, what kind of HK price is! You are a Criminal… well, I did not reply anymore…no choice I had to Block him on whatsapp!

He should be simply go to on line check “Rolex Daytona Ceramic Watch price “Then he will not call everyone in HK selling Daytona “Criminal”!

Back to Watch price.

Daytona Ceramic 165500LN SRP $95,000, market price selling $160,000-165,000 for white

Submariner 116610LV SRP $68,100 , now $92,000 just ran over the 90,000 marching to 100,000!

GMT Master Blue Black 116710BLNR SRP $67,300 now gray dealer is selling $83,000

I just delivered three pieces of Batman at $78,000 each last week in Philippines.

Someone asks, what is next, I cannot tell, may be it will stay on this price for a while waiting for next Rolex new watch release at BaselWorld.


  1. What of Hulk is Discontinued, then I am sure Hulk will be going to $100,000 price!
  2. What if Hulk is still in production, the people will likely keep waiting for the new Submariner, then Price of Hulk will go down little bit, but never will go down to $84,000 or below.
  3. What is Submariner 116610LN is discontinued by replacing of 126610LN, on then the Submariner price will go high like Buri Khalifa! So it may be wise to by one now when it is still not going over crazy!

What if Price of Daytona, well I am sure it will keep go up instead of going down.

So if you don’t want to go into Hamster Wheel, I sill suggest stay calm and get one when price is considered OK for you.

As I say, Rolex is Gold, Gold is not Rolex

Now you cannot get Daytona because Daytona is not Daytona It is Crazona

Some of the top Watch Smith in Hong Kong:- Eternity Watch Repair Victor Ku

I have learnt on how to repair watches when I was young and I know you got to have PASSION if you want to be successful in this career.
There is not short cut,  likewise, watch repair is not easy. We have to go through all steps, part removal, cleaning, drying, reassembly in, oiling, time checking... before passing the watch to hands of your client.
This is one guy who is young and he is an orderly man, he cares about details and he loves his Watch repair career.
He works at his confined small shop with door to ensure the work environment is clean.
Of course that could not be Class 10 of Semiconductor manufacturing standard, might be class 10000.
That is much better than I could expect.

On whatever watches he repair, Victor gives one year Warranty. 

His previous exposure was from Rolex, so he is an expert in Rolex.

Cke Shopping Mall, right beside Chung King Mansion, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Rolex AD in Venetian Hotel, Macao

This is one of the Rolex AD in the centre of Venetian Hotel inside the Casino.

There was no Batman, No Submariner Date, Sub no date, no Stainless steel Daytona, no Hulk, no Green pointer...

They have only the gold watch, such as Gold Daytona, a white gold submariner and some two tone Daytona.

Don't expect to have Single Red 126600 too as there are precious species there!

This shop is under Unique Hong Kong. The sales Supervisor is very knowledgeable on Watches!
It was fun to talk to him next time if you get a big fortune at the casino, come to take a Rolex Home.

Tour to Macao Watch Shops

Macao is likely one of the best place for a weekend staycation for Hong Kong People.

Party it is near, if you take Hydrofoil it takes only 1 hour from Sheung Wan to Macao.

There are many nice hotel with very reasonable price there.
I went there last Friday and Saturday staying there one night at Venetian Hotel (one night HK$2,600, week day will be much cheaper) I won some money at the Casino.

I went out to the prewned shops behind Lisboa Hotel for wach shopping
They have both New and old watches for you to choose

MOP price is as Same as HKD there. You can pay by Hong Kong dollar there.

One thing for sure is very very Expensive, So I did not buy anything at all.

Look at this Batman Ref 116710LNR, they are asking HK$138,000  (USD$17,692)!

Will you!?

Rolex Shopping in Shinjuku and Nakano

Just at main Road of Kabukicho, Shinjuku, nothing except Channel Bag, there is not so many Rolex.

This has a lot of Rolex and PP, you should visit there at Shinjuku

The Mecca of Rolex, Nakano Broadway at the Nakano station

JackRoad has the most of Watches especially Rolex


I had spent 8 Days in Shinjuku from 30 Dec 2017 to 6 Jan 2018 for both leisure tour and Rolex Shopping!

There my Conclusion is

Price after tax free is still slightly more expensive than Hong Kong on that day 3 Jan 2018.
There is not much Sport Watches that you want to get from Official AD,
Don't expect you can buy these: Submariner Date 116610LN, GMT Batman 116710BLNR, Daytona 116500 white or black!
I have not seen one in three official AD in Shinjuku.

So how about Vintage Rolex

Only one 1665 which has a price of HK$120,000 no paper. Still that is not able to seduce me for Buying because I have a Excellent one with paper.

Well, There is two watch shop you must Go at Nakano (the Mecca of Rolex) : Jackroad and TWC!

However on the day I visited only JackRoad opened, TWC still on new year vacation.

TWC  (The Watch Company)
They have all Tudor, Hamilton, Hublot, many Omega and Rolex

Price of Tudor is Likely very good in Japan.
Next time when you visit Tokyo, Don't miss TWC.
Visit their Web Site to find out more before you go

Price can be good in Japan depends on USD/Yen Exchange Rate.
Keep good timing to buy and you may get good deal.
