If you don’t, here’s a super-quick guide.

The letters are short for French words, and if you ever took basic French at school and remember how to say a handful of colors, you’re in luck.

Black = Noir
Blue = Bleu
Green = Vert
Red = Rouge
Chocolate (aka brown) = Chocolat
Here are some other handy vocab words:
Bezel = Lunette
Crystal = Glace

So, if you see the following letters in Rolex reference numbers, this is what it translates to:

Daytona 116500LN = Lunette Noir = Black Bezel
Submariner 126613LB = Lunette Bleu = Blue Bezel
Submariner 126610LV = Lunette Verte = Green Bezel
GMT-Master II 126719BLRO = Bleu Rouge = Blue Red
GMT-Master II 126710BLNR = Bleu Noir = Blue Black
GMT-Master II 126711CHNR- = Chocolate Noir = Brown Black
GMT-Master II 126720VTNR = Vert Noir = Green Black
Milgauss 116400GV = Glace Verte = Green Crystal

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
