I have been Collecting watches for a few years now, and a couple years ago I came across the Rolex 50th anniversary submariner and really loved the green bezel that came on it. After passing on getting it, I changed my mind and went back a few weeks later but it was already sold, I looked at a few local retailers and none had it. I ended up coming across a Breitling Windrider Chronomat that I really liked and purchased that and stop looking for the Rolex I had wanted. A little over a year ago while looking for a watch for my wife’s birthday. I started looking at the Rolex selection and was told that they just got the new Rolex “hulk” Submariner 116610LV in about an hour ago. The place I bought it was a small watch store and they very rarely get this watch in their selection. It didn’t take long of looking at it to realize I was glad I had missed out on the 50th anniversary, because I liked this one so much more, and bought it on the spot. I have had it a little over a year now and I am very happy with it one of my favorite watches I own.
