The Belgian-modified watch brand Designated Individual has recently been interested in the gradient dial. They have created the Submariner Parakeet, a strange green water ghost work with a green and black gradient dial, which combines Rolex’s representative green and trendy black. Perfectly blended, it turns into an improved masterpiece with more visual charm than the original Green Water Ghost.
The watch’s name—Parakeet (parakeet) is a bird with colorful and bright colors, and green is the primary color of the parakeet’s feathers, so DiW took inspiration from the feather color of the parakeet. Giving the dial a verdant green hue establishes a solid visual identity.
A highly recognizable gradient green dial was created based on the active water ghost and inspired by the feather color of parakeets.
The watch’s stainless steel case and chain strap are all treated with DLC black plating and a matte surface. As for the bezel, it is replaced with carbon fiber material. The replica luxury watches brand also paints the bezel every 10 minutes with an emerald green that echoes the dial, which is very conspicuous against the dark carbon fiber bezel.
The case and chain strap are treated with DLC to form an all-black appearance, and the bezel is made of carbon fiber material, which not only has a decorative effect but also reduces the overall weight of the replica watch.
In addition to the trendy and cool black case, chain strap, and carbon fiber bezel, the Submariner Persimmon’s dial color is the watch’s biggest highlight. DiW refers to the feather colors of parakeets when creating them. They carefully selected bright colors. The bright green tone is hand-painted to complete the gradient effect of the dial, and the control of color changes is a test of the skill of the modified watch brand. The gradient from green to black looks so natural on the outside, but it must be done during production. Making the color change from light to green layer by layer is more complicated than imagined.
The gradient effect of the dial changes from the top half to the bottom. In addition, the colors of the second hand and the words “SUBMARINER” are also different from the original factory settings.
The final green gradient effect of the watch is very successful. In the past, the green water ghost 116610LV could only be highlighted with light and angles. The Submariner Persimmon directly “fixed” it on the dial. At the same time, DiW also painted second-hand. The upper green and the word “SUBMARINER” at 6 o’clock are changed to gold to strengthen the watch’s personality.
With a trendy case and an eye-catching dial color, the Submariner Persimmon is hard to ignore when worn on the hand.
After remodeling, the new black and green water ghost is limited to 15 pieces. DiW’s asking price is 36,990 euros, about three times higher than the price of the green water ghost. So that the watch owner can get equal satisfaction and feedback while paying a high price.
