The all steel Submariners come with either a green or black ceramic bezel. The green is $7,800 and the black is $7,400. Regardless of which color you choose, the 2010 ceramic bezel steel Submariners will be very collectable, as this is the first year of production. The demand for this particular Rolex is already high, and I've heard they are very hard to get. You may even have to a pay a premium over retail to get one. However, if you do pay a few hundred or even a thousand over MSRP, in the long run, it will more than likely pay off, because it's a Rolex"

2010 ROLEX SUBMARINER GREEN CERAMIC BEZEL.
Not sure how I feel about this watch? Not a fan of the green, especially on the Dial and the Bezel. It's a bit much. After seeing this watch, I actually appreciate the 50th Anniversary edition more. With it's Green Bezel, black dial and enlarged Hour markers. You know the price of the 2010 Green Submariner will be much higher since it now has the Ceramic bezel. I guess Rolex needed to add something to the Submariner to get a buzz going. This will definitely be a collectors piece since it's the 1st edition of the ceramic bezel Subs. Expect this watch to be back ordered or hard to get. If you do get it, it'll probably be priced a bit higher than retail. I'll pass on this watch since I'm extremely happy with my SS Rolex Sub-date.
"Earlier this year, at Baselworld 2010, Rolex unveiled new steelSubmariners with the ceramic bezel upgrade, as seen on the gold Submariners last year, and the GMT bezels the year before.
