    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    I can only help with four of these visually here are the ones I have pictures of:

    The Hulk model number ends in LV (116610LV) so the LV is for the green Bezel.



    Not my picture but what is call the Kermit is also a LV model number 16610LV


    The BLNR is the Batman model number designation 126710BLNR with the new case, movement and Jubilee bracelet:




    The previous Batman BLNR with the Oyster that has the older 48Hour PWR movement and other case 116710BLNR:



    The Pepsi GMT II is model 126710BLRO which is the new 70Hour PWR movement, new case and Jubilee bracelet (BLRO):


    There is also a solid white gold version thart uses the old case, oyster bracelet and the 48 hours (3285) movement model 126719BLRO now with a blue(or meterite) dial:


    The last I can provide pictures of is the Milguass GV which means it has a Green glass crystal. In the current Rolex collection all Miguass are GV models with either black or blue dials. Here is model 116400GV with the black dial which you can see the green glass from the edge:

    BLNR and BLRO are color codes, I believe. BL stands for blue (or "bleu"), NR for "noir" or black, RO is red (probably "rouge"). So the BLNR is blue and black and the BLRO is blue and red.

    And here I was thinking I was coming to the rescue. Even I didn't know some of those.

    That also explains why my watch is simply the 114060 and the Submariner Date is the 116610LN and 116610LV. There is only one Submariner, but there are multiple Submariner Dates.

    Sigh. This thread is acting as a terrible reminder of how much I hate the look of jubilee bracelets.
