Also known as “50th anniversary model” this watch joins its fans with a green Cerachrom bezel that deserves a special attention. Finding the most durable material was a big challenge for manufacturer and finally it chosed the ceramic. Using an exclusive Rolex patented process the bezel is heated at 1500 degrees, hardening and purifying the ceramic mix. The entire bezel is bombarded with 904L stainless steel atom by atom and polished until the new layer remains permanently. Almost indestructible and not affected by scratches the ceramic bezel has to withstand more abrasion than any other part of the watch.
The Rolex 116610LV model is using as primary material the 904L stainless steel, an expensive and special alloy that ensure a high durability for your watch – also this steel is used in aerospace and chemical industry due to its high resistance and anti-corrosive properties.

It uses a Caliber 3135 self-winding mechanism to get a high precision in time measurement, with the help of a an oscillator that generates 28,800 vph, the equivalent of 1/8 second time unit. At Rolex the pursuit of excellence is the main purpose to achieve the perfection. The challenge to produce a watch movement precise enough and reliable enough to be called a Rolex movement, after years of research and design, involving dozens of engineers, scientists and watchmakers… the result was revolutionary. The Rolex blue Parachrom hairspring, created from unique paramagnetic alloy, it’s not affected by magnetic fields and up to ten times more resistant to shocks than a standard hairspring.
