Introduced at Baselworld 2010 last week, this is the new Rolex Submariner Date with a green Ceramic (Cerachron bezel). The bezel is made from extremely hard ceramic material, it is corrosion resistant, its color is unaffected by ultraviolet rays and it is virtually scratch-proof.


A 40 mm stainless steel case (904L steel) houses a COSC certified in-house self-winding Calibre 3135 Rolex movement. The bezel is a unidirectional rotating with a 60-minute graduated scale, with platinum graduations.

The sapphire crystal has a cyclops lens with an anti-reflective coating. The green dial features luminescent Chromalight hands and hour markers. Water-resistant is 300 meters. The Oyster bracelet features a Rolex Glidelock clasp. (Ref. 116610LN) The retail price is $7,800.
