Luminova Red Sub

The Replacement Dial from Rolex for the Red Submariner      by Ed Delgado


Rolex has responded to collectors requests by sometimes replacing their tired old red dials with a newer red dial.

The font is slightly different but the main difference is that the markers contain luminova and will glow bright green in the dark.

The most noticeable difference is that the dial is also labeled as "SWISS" at the bottom but some also have "T SWISS <25".
