In 2003, it coincided with the 50th anniversary of the birth of Rolex’s popular series “Submariner.” To this end, Rolex has specially launched the Submariner 50th Anniversary Edition Ref. 16610LV. The biggest difference from the ordinary Submariner is that its aluminum rotating outer ring has been changed from black to green, which Rolex has never used before. It is not only eye-catching, but it also echoes the Rolex trademark.
The Green Ghost is already hot enough, and there is an even more desirable subdivision within the Green Ghost called “Flat 4”, which is translated as “Flat 4” in Chinese.
The only difference between it and the ordinary version of the green ghost with aluminum rings is that the internal blank space of the “4” on the 40 scale is a trapezoid instead of a triangle.
This unique “Flat 4” flat head 4 version only appeared in the early days of the launch of Ref. 16610LV Green Ghost is the end of the Y prefix in 2002 and the F prefix in 2003. It disappeared later, and the production quantity was small. Tag Heuer replica watches.
The story of Flathead 4 and the past has been a long time; where is the latest opportunity?
To adapt to deep-sea saturation diving, Rolex modified the Submariner series Ref.5513, added a new patented “helium escape valve” on the side of the case, and then dedicated a single row of Ref.5514 for Comex use. After further upgrades, the waterproof depth was increased from 200 meters to 500 meters, and the dial began to be marked with a line of red fonts “Sea-Dweller” and white fonts drawn “Submariner Water Ghost,” which is commonly known as “Single Red.” Up to this period, it was still a small-scale experimental stage, and the “Sea-Dweller” was still affiliated with the “Submariner.”
After actual testing, Rolex launched Ref. 1665 to the market in 1967. Its dial was marked with two lines of red fonts, “Sea-Dweller” and “Submariner,” which was known as “Double Red”. . 1967 is also known as the year when “Sea-Dweller” was officially born.
According to most people’s inertial thinking, a double line of red letters will be more valuable than a single line. After all, there is one more line. But, because Shanhong is an early small-batch trial product, it is worth more.
In 2017, Rolex launched the new Sea-Dweller Ref. 126600. Compared with the previous generation product, Rolex added eye-catching red letters at six o’clock on the dial, marking “Sea-Dweller”! It is the modern version of “Shan Red Sea Envoy.”
In addition to the red letters on the dial, a significant change in the new Ref. 126600 is the use of Rolex’s latest 32 series movement.
Usually, at the six o’clock position on the dial, Rolex will print the words “Swiss made.” But starting in 2018, a small crown was added between the two words.
This is because the appearance of Rolex’s sports fake watches has mostly stayed the same in the past. At the same time, the bottom is dense, and the movement cannot be seen. To promote sales of new models, Rolex deliberately added a small crown on the dial to increase the difference between old and new models and facilitate quick differentiation.
The new Ref. 126600 had already switched to a new movement when it was launched in 2017, but it did not implement this “little crown on the dial” measure but followed up in 2018. So, the same model, Ref.126600, has two versions due to different dials, namely MK1 and MK2. The main difference is that the MK1 dial does not have a small crown, while the MK2 dial has a small crown.
Because MK1 was released in 2017 and discontinued in 2018, the actual production period was less than one year. At the same time, as the first batch of new models released, it naturally has the same room for speculation as the “Pingtou 4”.
While ordinary watchers are still grabbing the Ref.126600 of MK2, experienced drivers with a keen sense of smell buy MK1.
