Now, we move on to what has to be the most popular steel sports Swiss made fake Rolex five-digit reference. The Submariner Date 16610 was THE Rolex to own in the ‘90s into the new millennium. I don’t know why it was this perfect replica Rolex Submariner that caught fire, but from Wall Street down to the docks, these were truly everywhere.
Admittedly, this is one of my least favorite pieces from this era. I find it a bit boring and I don’t love the Cyclops. Regardless of my views, this cheap fake Rolex UK lived an amazingly long life from 1988 to 2010 and came in a 40mm case that offered 300 meters of water resistance. Here again, the lume changed in the late ‘90s and Rolex added solid end links around 2000.
In 2003, the line got a second model called the AAA replica Rolex Submariner 16610LV for the 50th anniversary of the Submariner. This watch kept the same 3135 movement but added a green bezel insert and a “Maxi” dial and hands (larger than the normal 16610). The LV is affectionately known as the “Kermit.” Kermits have garnered a hefty premium over their less colorful counterparts, with prices starting at a whopping €18K. The high quality fake Rolex 16610 in black form starts at a more reasonable €9K. Note that due to the immense popularity of the 16610 over its lifetime, the vast majority received polishing and/or dial updates.
The Swiss Watch Trader gives a nice visual history of the all-black Rolex Submariner 16610 replica for sale UK. The Watch Lounge shows us how the green LV “Kermit” changed over time.
