Rolex introduced the Submariner in 1953 and for the 50th anniversary Rolex came out with the reference 1160LV to celebrate. The 50th anniversary debuted in 2003 and was in production until circa 2010. The anniversary model has a "flat four" green bezel insert and “Maxi” dial; which means the hour markers are larger than the hour markers on the regular Submariner of this time period. This particular example has an “F” serial number which means it dates to circa 2003 – 2004. These early anniversary Submariners are becoming more sought after by collectors.
