So you’re thinking about buying a green submariner, but you’re not sure which one to buy. Maybe I can help you out or maybe you’re just one of those guys who likes watching videos about nice watches. I’m one of those guys too. Welcome back to barking, Jack. I am Adrian and, firstly, happy holidays. I hope you have done all of your shopping because it’s getting tight. Now that being said I haven’t done any of mine. I actually don’t like the color green. Whenever I take a photograph that has something green in it. I always remove the green, but there’s something special about the Rolex screen. It’s a deep, rich, classy green. It feels well thought out and it has. It’s actually a green that I like because it’s full of earthy tones, and that makes it very pleasing. And I know what you’re thinking, Agent. How the hell have you got your dirty hands on three super hot green Rolexes? That’s down to the guys over at cronex. Who have trusted me with all of these? Actually, this the kermit’s mine. Uh, they’ve only trusted me with the other two, but they’ve kindly sponsored this video and lent me these two watches, so lets. Take a look at them. The first one is the Kermit, actually first off for all the boring plums out there who get really triggered when someone calls a submariner date a submariner or a one double six one o lv, a Kermit life doesn’t have to be that serious watches. Don’t have to be that serious. I personally love the irony of a very prestigious brand like Rolex spending a long time creating years, creating such a highly engineered tool for us to then just call it a little pet name like Hulk. Kermit Pepsi. Just lighten up. Let me introduce these watches. The first one is the Kermit. This is the OG Green Watch. This is what everything else is based on. This is the LV 10610lv We have the hulk. This is the double one double six one o lv. And now we have the new boy, The one two double six one o lv. Some people calling this Starbucks. Some people are calling it the Kermit, some people calling it the summit. The ceramic Kermit, that’s crack name. I’m just going to call it the new Kermit, because I kind of it, that’s what it is. Although these are all green submariners, they are all incredibly different. They are all from different areas different decades and so they are very different products. The Kermit was launched in 2003 and it was to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the submarine launched in 1953. It’s quite a special watch because of the first submarines to have green as part of its package, but also it was an insight into what is to come in the future. This was the first submariner to have the maxi dial and maxi hands seven years before it was going to be launched out to the rest of the submariner range. The Kermit was discontinued in 2010 and that’s when the Hulk took over the double one double six one o lv. The green bezel is now ceramic. We now have the Max effect case with the squared off lugs to match the maxi hand and the maxi dial. We also have the brilliant updated bracelet, the very solid bracelet with that glide lock extension in the clasp, and then we have the dial, which is obviously green and it’s. A green burst in 2020 the whole sub baron range was updated and the Hulk was discontinued, replaced with the new Kermit the 12610 with the increased case. We now have the 41 millimeter wide case and the 21 millimeter wide bracelet. The dial is obviously now black. The bezel is the same color but slightly larger in ceramic, but the biggest difference is the fact that we now have the updated movement, which is far more power efficient and gives us 70 hours of power reserve up from 48. The price of all of these varies a lot. Obviously, you know, watches them and it’s all down to the whole package And the condition that the watch is In. For example, the Kermit originally sold at retail price for around four thousand pounds, But these now sell for about fourteen thousand pounds, But there’s a very rare one called the flat four, which is one of the early ones. This has a big, fat four on the bezel, and that was manufactured between 2003 and 2004. These things can fetch over 25 000 pounds If they’re in good condition. And if they’re a full set, the Hulk originally sold for about 6500 pounds. Now these sell for about 18 thousand pounds and the newcomers. You can get new for seven thousand Six hundred fifty pounds. But it’s it’s very hard to get. If you’re not a VIP client to the ad, then it’s highly unlikely. You’re gonna get one of these watches. You’re gonna have to look at the pre-owned market and these go for over 18 000 pounds. Green sounds like an odd color to have on a watch it. When you buy a watch, you often think about watches being versatile and be able to wear them with lots of outfits. When the comic was on my radar, I was concerned. Is this actually going to be something that I can wear? As an everyday watch, or is it just gonna be something that I can only wear the gray jumper or a white t-shirt, which doesn’t really matter because that’s all I wear anyway. Definitely on the Kermit and the new Kermit. The watch is actually really quite subtle. The green is very subtle. It’s not all that eye-catching the hulk on the other hand. Has that big, shiny green dial, which is more eye-catching and isn’t as versatile as the others. The best thing to do is check out these watches in real life and see how you feel about the green when you see it in normal natural sunlight. Luckily, the guys over at Chronix have a service where you can find the watch you want on their website on Chronixcom? Select it, put it in your basket and essentially check out that watch is then yours, but you don’t pay for it. You have it sent to your local Chronix boutique and then try it on there without having to part with any money. Check it out in real life. Put it in your rest. See if this is actually right, watch for you If it is brilliant hand over the money job done. Watch is yours. If it’s not, you can just walk away politely. Walking, don’t just spin around and fox, your Oscar. If you do find a watch that you want over at creditsco’m use discount code bark and jack. If you’re spending over 5000 pounds, that will save you money. And it also helps the channel out so the pros and cons from my eyes on all three watches. Firstly, the kermits as I said, this is the original green sub and the green in it. I see as being more of the traditional Rolex green, it’s there, but it’s subtle, it’s earthy, and it’s very classy. This one has genuine history celebrating the 50th anniversary of the submariner and luckily, this watch has been out for a while, so the hype has died down for the Kermit, meaning it’s less common. There isn’t so much attention around it in my eyes that makes it more appealing a bit more interesting. Also, the price isn’t as ridiculous as the others, the cons. The bracelet is lower quality. This is the old submariner bracelet, and it is nowhere near as good as the current bracelets. The bezel damages relatively easily because it’s just painted aluminium and that paint can scratch off quite easily in my eyes. I quite like that because it it makes it feel old and worn, but some people I know don’t like that. They like their things to be pristine so that I do think that is a negative point. This has old caliber 3130 movement. It’s not a bad movement, but just in comparison to the modern day, what Rolex is offering now with a 32-30 movement, It’s just not as refined. It’s just not as good. Good things about Hulk are the fact it has a brilliant bracelet. This bracelet is solid and it has the glidelock. Clasp the ceramic bezel. If you like your things to be pristine, then this bezel will not scratch. The negative points for me are the green dial the blingy green dial. The K shape is contentious. I personally don’t like it with the square of Lugs. And, Lastly, I do find that this is overhyped. There’s a lot of attention around this because the new Kermit has come out and because this has recently been discontinued, which in the watch world that obviously means that the price goes up sometimes unnecessarily the new Kermit positives. I think are the fact it has the new case and new bracelet. So now both of these parts I feel are more in proportion. More representative of what the original submariners looked like this has a new movement with an increased power reserve of 70 hours, and the whole thing is just more energy efficient. I do find, although the green on the bezel is the same as the previous on the hulk. I do find that the the combination of the green bezel and black dial is a classier combo. The downside of this watch is that it’s pretty much impossible for us to get at an ad and it is massively hyped up because it’s the new poster boy, watchful Rolex, which is why it’s impossible to get from an ad and why the prices are where they are. It’s also a homage, a homage to the original Unless I’m not even wearing it. It’s also a homage. It’s a copy of the original. This camera is my personal watch, and it’s always sat within my collection as being the beefy, very modern looking and being my most modern Watch that I’ve owned for a while, But since the new submariners have come out and since getting hands-on with all of these and comparing them all like this doing this video, it’s really changed. How I look at my Kermit. The Kermit now has this air of vintage about it or certainly an air of being old school. The case is slimmer, it’s danger, it’s still beefy, but the case and bracelets are nothing in comparison to what is out now. On the new Kermit, I’ve never been a fan of the Hulk. I found that squared off maxi case just to be a bit too Try-hard and then with that shiny dial for me Adds to that try-hard look of the Hulk, and I just feel like it’s. It’s not a classy watch. The new comet! However, I think is amazing. It took me a while to get used to the new proportions to get used to seeing this slightly ever so slightly. Be for your watch. The green bezel? I don’t think is as classy as deep as as rich as the original aluminium bezel, But I do think the new comet is a stunning watch. If I can be Frank with you, I don’t think the Hulk deserves to sit alongside the Kermit and the New Kermit. If I had all three of these watches on a tray and the choice to buy any of them at retail price, Then I would choose the Kermit, the original one. If that wasn’t there, then I would choose a new Kermit at no point. Would I consider the Hulk? It’s just not on the same level as these other two watches. But that’s just my thoughts, that’s. Just my opinions let me know. Drop me a comment down below and let me know what you think of these three watches. And which one is your favorite of these three or maybe none of them.
