Nicknamed 'Kermit' for its green reference, this now iconic piece shocked the Rolex world in its debut in 2003 when it was released commemorating the 50th anniversary of the world's most famous tool watch, the Rolex Submariner.
Featuring a green steel insert, yet paying homage to the yesteryears with a maxi dial, the detest it initially faced quickly turned into fandom as rolex lovers learnt to embrace and love it over the years. This now collectors piece is highly sought after! To think some nick named this Submariner 'vomit' when it was first released!
Take a guess which of today's 'vomit' releases is going to be the new frog Prince?
