Since its release in 2010, the Rolex Submariner 116610LV has steadily become one of Rolex’s most elusive and in-demand watches. Nicknamed the ‘Hulk’ after Marvel’s fan favourite comic and movie character, the 116610LV was initially made as a predecessor to the hugely popular 50th anniversary green bezel ‘Kermit’ Submariner. Combining the updated 2008 Submariner Super Case and Maxi Dial with a striking green dial and ceramic bezel, the Submariner ‘Hulk’ remains one of most daring yet successful releases in Swiss watch giant’s history.
With only one previous owner and only seldomly worn, this Submariner remains in great condition, with just a few very minor hairline marks on the case back and clasp.
Comes as a full set, including original box and warranty card, plus a free Tempo & Time polish cloth. It is a UK watch with the 160 country code and still has its Rolex warranty until 2022.
If you’re interested in a Hulk, the chances are you already know just how extraordinarily well this watch has performed over the past few years. Five years ago, pre-owned Hulks were trading for around the £6,000 mark – barely above retail. Since then, they’ve almost doubled on the second hand market. And with rumours growing stronger of Rolex discontinuing the model sometime this year, these green machines could well shoot up at an even faster rate very soon.
