  • Catalogue Essay

    Calling to mind the “Hulk”, the Rolex Submariner reference 116610LV is a bold and dynamic wristwatch dominated by its scratch resistant green Cerachrom ceramic bezel and green sunburst dial. Released in 2010, the model replaced the 50th anniversary reference 11610LV, also known as the “Kermit”. While similar in overall design and build, the “Hulk” features a robust case with broader lugs and a green tone and hue, which is darker and more rich.

    Fresh to the market and in like new condition, this example is complete with guarantee and presentation box. The Submariner is an icon and at times a model is well served by being changed even slightly, the green hue of the watch adds a striking and unmissable chic.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1905

    Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, it soon became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Like no other company, the success of the wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex's innovations that made them one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These innovations include their famous "Oyster" case — the world's first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their "Perpetual" — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933. They would form the foundation for Rolex's Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956, but also importantly for their sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.

    One of its most famous models is the Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963, these chronographs are without any doubt amongst the most iconic and coveted of all collectible wristwatches. Other key collectible models include their most complicated vintage watches, including references 8171 and 6062 with triple calendar and moon phase, "Jean Claude Killy" triple date chronograph models and the Submariner, including early "big-crown" models and military-issued variants.
