    A Hands-On Price Guide to Rolex Submariner

    The Rolex Submariner is one of the legendary watches the brand has ever created.  Built with its incredible durability and high resistance to water and corrosion, the Submariner is the Rolex diving watch collection under it sports watches.  The Rolex Submariner has experienced an extremely successful history and its popularity never cease to grow. It has been worn by countless world luminaries, celebrities and sports stars. Because of such popularity the prices of Rolex Submariner watches have varied over time. Rolex Submariner Prices The Submariner Rolex price range spans tens of thousands of dollars. However, since the market is not transparent, the prices vary in different regions, from different sellers.  You can search on the Internet using keywords like “Rolex Submariner price new” and “Rolex Submariner price list” to get a rough estimate of value. More specifically, you can search it with, for example, “Rolex Submariner Singapore” or “Rolex Submariner price Singapore” to find out the approximated price around your region.  However, the results are less likely comprehensive enough to evaluate all the Submariner models. In 2021 alone, Rolex introduced eight new Submariner models, ranging in price from US$8,100 to $39,650. It is difficult to determine exactly how much a new Submariner costs. Thanks to exceeding demand for these legendary Rolex dive watches, Rolex Submariner prices in the secondary market have skyrocketed from official retail prices. For some Rolex lovers who do not want to wait for years to get one at MSRP, they would pay much more above retail prices for pre-owned Submariners in today’s market. Among other fellows, the stainless steel Submariner models are especially popular and hold their value. The latest Submariner with the highest value is the new green Rolex Submariner 126610LV. It is currently valued at over double its MSRP. Below is a Submariner price table that compares the 2021 official prices of all current-production Submariner references with prices in the pre-owned watch market. Prices for New Rolex Submariner Watches The price of a new Submariner really depends on where you buy it, even for the same model.  There is an official Rolex Submariner price list for the authorized dealers (AD) to adhere to. For the new Submariner models, they are sold at an AD at the below prices: New steel Submariners: US$8,100 – $9,550New Submariner two-tone models: US$14,300New Submariner yellow gold models: US$36,950New Submariner white gold models: US$39,950However, as mentioned it is almost impossible for you to just go in and get a Submariner so easily at an AD store. They will put you into a years-long waitlist or will just simply tell you they are all sold out.  That is why, there are still many customers turning to the secondary market even though the prices are rising endlessly over there. Below are the rough prices of the Submariner in the overall watch market. Moreover they are expected to be increasing over time.  New steel Submariners: US$15,000+New Submariner two-tone models: US$20,000+New Submariner yellow gold models: US$40,000+New Submariner white gold models: US$50,000+The market is optimistic that the value of these models are most likely to be increasing. Therefore, many people are not slightly hesitant to get the watches on hand for their collection or as an investment.  Prices for Used Rolex Submariner Watches With over seven decades of production and numberless variation on over dozens of models, the prices of used Rolex Submariner vary in a wide range.  Their prices would vary by the year of production, number of production, and the material made. They would typically range from US$9,000 to US$40,000.  As for the vintage Submariner models with good conditions, the prices always start at US$10,000. But for high-valued collectible models, the prices can even increase into the six-figure range.  Popular Submariner Models We have explored the rough estimation of Rolex Submariner watches based on the material. Now let’s drill down to some of the most popular models.  Among all the variations, there are few types of models that hold the value best.  The stainless steel black Submariner with Cerachrom Bezel is one of the most sought after watches. It is almost safe to say that its value will never fall.  Let’s check out some of the most popular Rolex Submariners and their prices.  The Black Cerachrom Rolex Submariners In the late 2000s, one of the biggest modifications to the collection was the Cerachrom ceramic bezels on its 1166xx generation. Together with the updated bezel, the 1166xx series featured the “Super Case” and refined outlook. The 1166xx generation was considered a new wave of Rolex production.  Black Rolex Submariner Date 116610LN Source from: kronos360 And within those models, the black stainless steel models hold the most value.  The Rolex Submariner Date 116610LN was launched in 2010. Its black-on-black colour scheme has successfully grabbed the heart of many Rolex lovers.  The price of a brand new 116610LN is usually US$16,000+ in the secondary market. For a used one, it would be around US$12,000+.  Black Rolex Submariner No Date 114060 114060 and 116610LN are almost identical despite the date window. It was launched 2 years after 116610LN. They both featured black dial and black Cerachrom bezel, with the same “Super Case”, water resistant rating and dial configuration.  Their only difference is the date window. The Rolex Submariner 114060 does not feature a date window display like 116610LN. To differentiate these two models, 114060 is called a “No Date”. With a more classical and instrumental outlook, 114060 has also collected a huge bunch of admirers.  The price of a brand new 114060 is usually US$15,000+ in the secondary market.  Black Submariner Date 41 mm 126610LN Source from: rolex.com The upgraded version of 116610LN. Rolex Submariner 126610LN features a 41mm case with an improved in-house caliber. Its official retail price is US$9,150. However if you do not want to take years for the wait, you can find a new one at around US$16,000 in the secondary market. Black Submariner No Date 41 mm 124060 124060-0001 It is the only 2020 new model available without a date window display. Just like other new ones, it is equipped with the new case and new caliber.  Its retail price on the official website is US$8,100. Of course it is nowhere to be found available at such a price due to its massive demand. Right now you can get a new one at around US$15,000 in the market.  ROLEX SUBMARINER WATCHES WITH GREEN BEZELS Ever since the 50th anniversary of the Submariner in 2003, Rolex has started to offer the option of a green bezel on a Submariner Date.  Rolex has always priced the models with green bezels higher than those with a black bezel. The price differences are as well reflecting in the secondary market.  Up to day, Rolex has made three green Submariners so far. In 2021, the market value of those green Subs are: Rolex Kermit 16610LV  Rolex Submariner 16610LV is a 40mm Submariner with a green aluminum bezel. As it has been more than a decade since its discontinuation, a brand new one is already hard to find.  For a brand new 16610LV, it will cost more than US$30,000 to get. And for a pre-owned one, it usually starts at US$14,000+.  Rolex Hulk 116610LV  Rolex Submariner 116610LV is a 40mm Submariner with a green Cerachrom bezel. It was launched together with 116610LN in 2010. It was immediately considered as one of the most important models in the brand’s history.  Due to its discontinuing in 2020, its value has been increasing over time. Right now a new 116610LV is available at US$20,000+ in the market.  Rolex Cermit 126610LV  126610LV-0002 The 2020 version of green Rolex Submariner is usually call “2020 Kermit” or “Cermit”. It is a 41mm Submariner with a green Cerachrom bezel.  For a brand new 126610LV, the price will be US$20,000+ in the secondary market.  Because Rolex Submariner watches are still extremely popular watches today, they continue to hold their value and some of the models have increased in value over time. No matter which one you get, it will be an amazing treasure for investment or even to pass on.  Read More : Suunto Rolex Omega IWC Watches Breitling Cartier Hublot Hamilton Chopard Panerai

  4. Reasons To Invest In Rolex Daytona Watches

    Reasons To Invest In Rolex Daytona Watches

    You don’t need any knowledge about watches to know that watches can be extremely valuable. Especially vintage watches. In Oct 2017, the famous Rolex Daytona (Paul Newman Daytona 6239) was sold at auction for almost US$18 million. It is the highest record among all Rolex watches ever sold.  Rolex watches are usually considered as the best option for timepiece investment. Although the price of a valuable Patel Philippe watch is usually higher than a Rolex, unfortunately, it is also extremely hard to even get on hand. Rolex is comparatively more accessible.  The value of Rolex has been stable for over decades. Of course, not all of its models can hold their value well for years. Actually, some models are more suitable for investment.  For example, some references of the Rolex Daytona are hardly available at concessionaires and the market is willing to pay double the official price. In the case of other watches, such as the Explorer II, their value would be uncertain at the moment for the potential for an increase in value. It will be mostly dependent on when it will be replaced by a successor model. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona has been one of the best Rolex watches for investment over the years. Let’s explore how the Rolex Daytona holds its value as one of the best “investment timepieces”.  Reasons why Daytona is a good investment A Rolex watch itself is stable for investment Every collector knows that many Rolex models are good for investment because of their continuous growth in value and ever-retaining popularity.  With its long history with record-breaking innovation and incredible marketing strategy, Rolex’s reputation is extraordinary worldwide. It makes the trading market for Rolex very active for both connoisseurs and beginners. Most of the Rolex watches will hold their value and are always in demand. It is the safest option if you are just about to make your first investment.   Some classic models like the Rolex Daytona will even increase in value more exponentially than others.  History of Daytona To understand why the Rolex Daytona is a good piece for investment, we will need to consider the history of this iconic timepiece as well. The Daytona Collection has always held an important seat in Rolex’s history.  Time back to the year 1955, Rolex launched the very original Daytona 6234 model. The watch wasn’t launched in any name of “Daytona” or “Cosmograph”. It was just simply labeled “Chronograph” and it wasn’t selling very well at that time.  Since the 1950s, the world has been obsessed with automobile racing. It had become one of the hottest sports in the US during the 1950s to 1960s. In 1962, Rolex served as the official timekeeper of the Daytona racetrack and introduced its 6239 Cosmograph for racing drivers in the next year. Rolex nicknamed the watch “Daytona” to emphasize its affiliation with the prestigious speedway.  The Reference 6239 Daytona Rolex watch had soon become a popular pick for some iconic celebrities. It succeeded to build its name especially after Paul Newman wore it on his races. Paul Newman was an actor and a successful racing driver admired by auto racing lovers. The Rolex lovers nicknamed the reference of his Daytona “Paul Newman Daytona”.  Nowadays, many of the Paul Newman Daytona watches are being sold for over millions of US dollars at auctions. The Rolex Daytona has become a legendary watch to hold values for investment overall.  Daytonas are scarce Most models of Rolex Daytona are always scarce and in demand. Rolex usually distributes the new models in limited numbers to a few authorized dealers. Those dealers would have a year-long list of customers, who already pre-ordered a Rolex Daytona.  Rolex would usually not reveal the number of the new models produced and the distribution. Yet the huge demand among the collectors for every Rolex new release is never satisfied. Even if you pre-ordered, it is still possible that you will need to wait for years. Some dealers would consider the waiting time would be more likely two to five years.  Its circulation is never enough. Therefore, It is almost impossible to simply walk into a Rolex store and get one Daytona watch as you wish. Some collectors would simply wait for the distribution from the authorized dealers, some will happily spend over double the price to get a brand new Daytona watch instantly on the secondary market. Thereby the selling prices for a Rolex Daytona are ever-increasing and you can sell one anytime easily without losses. Rolex Sports Models Rolex sports watch collections usually reliably hold or appreciate in value than its other collections. The most in-demand sports watches include the Rolex GMT Master II, Rolex Daytona, and Rolex Submariner.  Some special models of these sports watches, such as the Rolex Hulk Submariner and the Rolex Batman GMT-Master II have seen a continuing increase in value over time.  Not only the popular old sports models can increase in value, even newly discontinued models instantly skyrocket in the second-hand market.  Rolex sports watches will ever go out of style and are always in demand. As one of the most popular Rolex sports watches, it is fairly safe to say that Rolex Daytona watches are likely to increase in value under these circumstances.  Best Daytona watch for investment Steel Rolex Daytona Black 116500LN Cosmograph Daytona 116500LN Black The most approachable Daytona watch for investment should be the Rolex Daytona 116500LN. It is a Rolex 904L Oystersteel model with a Cerachrom bezel and screw-down crowns. It is a timeless and classic design that is perfect for an everyday watch. Even at first glance it is easy to understand why this watch can be so much in demand. When the Rolex Daytona ceramic f116500LN was introduced at 2016 Baselworld, it was £9,600 at list price. However, in just a few years after its launch, it is now changing hands on the second-hand market for more than a double of price.  Rolex Daytona Rose Gold 116515LN  Cosmograph Daytona 116515LN-0013 For a Rolex Daytona, some collectors would go for a more luxurious one. Such as a rose gold Daytona with matching dial and diamond indexes. The rose gold for a Rolex is called The Rolex Everose gold. It is a perfect rosy gold without being too coppery that many Rolex lovers admire.  That’s why a rose gold Rolex Daytona, as well, always holds its value because of its popularity among the collectors.  Rolex Daytona Gold 116508 Cosmograph Daytona 116508/2 It should be needless to say that a classic yellow gold Daytona is also a good choice for investment. For example this Rolex Daytona gold 116508 with a black dial.  A yellow gold Daytona always has its spot among the collectors and even celebrities.  Read More : Suunto Rolex Omega IWC Watches Breitling Cartier Hublot Hamilton Chopard Panerai

  6. The Popular Rolex Oyster Perpetual Models You Should Know

    The Popular Rolex Oyster Perpetual Models You Should Know

    Rolex Oyster Perpetual is considered as the purest form of a Rolex watch. Without date display, rotating bezel, chronograph or any fuss, it contains only the most classic features that define the brand. Its simplistic design is the one for purists.  Rolex Oyster Perpetual is the quintessential example of Rolex. While other collections, such as Rolex Submariner or Rolex Datejust contain the “Oyster Perpetual” phrase in their name, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual is the most simple, straight-forward Rolex watch. Although it is less discussed, the Oyster Perpetual is the more accessible Rolex. Rolex Oyster Perpetual price is much more budget-friendly than other famous fellows. Many watch lovers see it as the entry watch to enjoy the heritage of Rolex. Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust is also one of the best choices for beginners.  The Rolex OP watch offers various size and dial options to suit lots of different tastes. Here we are introducing some of the most popular models you can choose from.  History of Oyster Perpetual  The Oyster Perpetual is defined by two features that Rolex invented: its aesthetics and its self-winding Perpetual movement. The Oyster part is based on the 1926 Rolex Oyster, the very first waterproof watch in the world. Wilsdorf named it because this case design was as hard to open as the shell of Oyster and, similarly, needed special tools to do so. The Oyster Perpetual collection is directly descended from the 1926 original Oyster.  The “Perpetual” of the name refers to the self-winding movement Rolex invented in 1931. The movement was powered by the perpetual motion of the wrist. It provides the watch with a constant source of energy without manual winding. As Rolex’s collection expanded, the name has become a special term to represent Rolex’s technology and attached to other collections’ names as a prefix.  Until very recently in 2015, the Oyster Perpetual had long been considered as Rolex watches for women due to its smaller sizings – 26/31/34/36mm. Then, in 2015, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 mm was announced.  Oyster Perpetual 39  Oyster Perpetual 39 Black Steel 39mm 114300-0005 The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39, introduced in 2015, is available with 5 dial color options. You can choose from the classic black or white, through grey, blue and purple.  Its fantastic size is correctly proportioned for almost every wrist. The simple and sportily elegant look goes well with every occasion naturally.  What replaced the Rolex OP 39 is the new Oyster Perpetual 41 mm. Instead of offering Oyster Perpetuals in sizes of 28, 31, 34, 36, and 39mm, there is now a jump of 5mm between the Oyster Perpetual 36mm and the 41mm one.  Oyster Perpetual 41 Oyster Perpetual 41 Automatic Silver Dial Men’s Watch 124300-0001 In 2020, Rolex introduced a new 41 mm version into the family to replace Oyster Perpetual 39. Despite the size, the new dial options are a huge part of what the OP 41 offers.  The new Oyster Perpetual 41 mm comes with 7 dial options. There are bright colors known as “Stella-inspired” and the classic dial options. The 2 classic dials are a new silver with sunburst finishing and a new black with sunburst finishing. The brighter options include turquoise, coral red, yellow, green, and sunburst blue color. Underneath the surface, the Oyster Perpetual 41 houses the new in-house caliber 3230. This is the same movement used in the new Rolex Submariner no date 124060. It boasts more accuracy, stability, and power reserve than the old generation of the OP watch. The movement is Superlative Chronometer certified that ensures the promising performance for daily wear.  The Oyster Perpetual Models The Oyster Perpetual watch is always considered as the entry level into the world of Rolex. It has long been the best selling collection, outselling the other famous models.  Let’s assume that you are not interested in a 26mm OP watch, there are still many variations in the collection. So let’s check out some of the best Oyster Perpetual watches that both men and women would enjoy.  Rolex Oyster Perpetual 116000 Blue Dial Oyster Perpetual 36 Blue Explorer 116000 Although some OP enthusiasts will claim that 34 mm is the best since it inherits the size of the 1926 original one, it is still too small for some men. The 36mm Oyster Perpetual 116000 is more suitable for both ladies and the gentlemen with a small wrist.  First released in 2008, Rolex 116000 has been around for a while and various of dial options have been introduced. Many wearers would go for the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36 blue dial. This model adds a more elegant accent to the subtle watch.  Rolex Oyster Perpetual 114300 Dark Rhodium Dial Oyster Perpetual 39 Dark Rhodium 114300 In 2015, Rolex 114300 was launched. The 39mm diameter of this OP watch can adapt to practically any wrist size. It immediately attracted the attention of male Rolex lovers and the ladies who like large watches.  The Oyster Perpetual 39 came with 3 options of dial colors. The one that got the most discussions is the rhodium grey 114300.  The rhodium grey shade adds a touch of elegance to such a sporty watch. This is perfect as an everyday watch for any occasion.  Rolex Oyster Perpetual 114300 White Dial Oyster Perpetual Automatic White Dial Men’s Watch 114300 If you prefer a classic, the Oyster Perpetual 39 while dial will always make a statement for you.  The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 114300 also offers a white dial option on a stainless steel Oyster bracelet with folding buckle. The functions with the splendid “Rolex standard” of this Rolex OP 39 include a 100-meter depth of water resistance and the precision of COSC Swiss chronometer certification.  White dial Rolexes are rare – it provides additional value to this 39mm Oyster Perpetual. It is sometimes called “OP Polar” which is similar to the white Explorer Polar.  Oyster Perpetual 41 124300 Turquoise Blue Dial The Oyster Perpetual 41 is introduced in 2020.  The “Stella-inspired” dial options have collected their own supporters. Within these gorgeous colors, many people like the turquoise dial that is similar to the “Tiffany color”.  Like all Rolex watches, it is a Superlative Chronometer that is certified by both Rolex and COSC. The new in-house 3230 automatic movement offers a power reserve of up to 70 hours.  Wrap Up As the simplest and purest of all Rolex watches, Rolex Oyster Perpetual is designed with the core concept of what a Rolex is. It is a fantastic watch that houses Rolex’s best elements in a relatively affordable package.  Read More : Suunto Rolex Omega IWC Watches Breitling Cartier Hublot Hamilton Chopard Panerai

These watches are truly lovable to many due to their ornate design and high reliability in precision.  Since we’ve already touched a little on the prestigious King Gold watches, on this article I’ll share with you on the most-rated Titanium Hublot models. In case you didn’t know, titanium’s sturdiness, high resistance to corrosion, as well as high temperatures are dearly valuable in many fields and industries.

For functionality, you don’t have to worry at all with 511.NX.2611.LR on your wrist. The HUB1112 self-winding movement it houses can run for 42-hour minimum nonstop, providing you with high-precision of time and date at the 3 o’clock marker. Photo Credit : watch-yoshida.co.jp HUBLOT CLASSIC FUSION BLACK DIAL TITANIUM- Ref. 511.NX.1170.RX Apart from appearance, this Hublot model is quite similar to the 511.NX.2611.LR we’ve just discussed. It’s one of the starters that pioneered the Hublot Classic Fusion watch line back in 2010.  As a classic “Hublot Big Bang design”, 511.NX.1170.RX watch has a sturdy titanium bezel and a 45mm outer casing that is made of titanium too. This helps sheathe the self-winding HUB 1112 caliber and the matte black dial with the Hublot Geneve signature beneath the 12 o’clock marker.   Since the motive with the Hublot Classic Fusion was to simplify the Big Bang collection, 511.NX.1170.RX features skeletonized rhodium-plated hands. Along with a sapphire crystal case back which allows you to witness as some of the movement’s 25 jewels harmonize to produce the long-awaited tick.  Unlike its counterpart which has a black alligator strap, 511.NX.1170.RX Hublot Classic Fusion Titanium watch comes with a black rubber strap. This makes the watch a multifaceted model and usable professionally, as well as for adventures on land and water ( 50M waterproofed).  SPIRIT OF BIG BANG GREY TITANIUM CHRONOGRAPH- Ref. 601.NX.0173.LR Although this model appears to be classic, I won‘t say it is, since it’s as intricate as its brothers and sisters in the celebrated Big Bang collection. In fact, the major difference amongst them is case nature.  With an aim to snatch Cartier its iconic Tank-design title, 601.NX.0173.LR SPIRIT OF BIG BANG features a tank-shaped Satin-finished titanium case with a polished micro-blasted titanium bezel. From its crystal clear sapphire dial, the HUB 4700 chronograph movement is notably visible as it continues with its magic. For those who cherish luxury watches for their complication, this model serves your liking optimally. In fact, Hublot has designed it so intricate that it can confuse you at first with its chronograph and date functions from the skeletonized date wheel. To support its 100 m waterproofness, 601.NX.0173.LR SPIRIT OF BIG BANG has large luminesced hour indicators and Rhodium-plated hands. Thus, easily readable even in the dark-blued sea depths. HUBLOT SPIRIT OF BIG BANG TITANIUM WHITE DIAMONDS- Ref. 665.NE.2010.RW.1204 All men are never born equal, thus, I believe all tastes are never similar as well.  Classic. Ornate. And still reliable. This watch is a blend of various Hublot watches, together with “Cartier tank design” which features a rectangular case and seamless connection of the white rubber straps. On its 39mm Satin-finished titanium case, the wristwatch has a polished titanium bezel with a 50-diamond setting for extra brilliance and ultra-luxury.  To ensure the bright splendor is retained even at 100m sea-depth, the white matte dial of the 665.NE.2010.RW.1204 watch has large luminesced hands and hour indicators. This attribute is essential for other dark backgrounds as well.  Running with a powerful HUB1710 automatic movement, this titanium watch is capable of reserving power for up to 50 hours. While still presenting you with high-precision of time and even date at 6 o’clock. Conclusion: To ensure its eminent reputation is maintained optimally, Hublot is staunchly dedicated to changing the realm of horology using its intricate artistry and cutting-edge innovation. So far, its various luxury watches have managed to surpass even some of the oldest watchmakers. As with the Hublot Classic Fusion and the Spirit of Big Bang collections which feature a variety of precious metals like the exclusive King Gold and the non-corrosive Titanium.

    What You Need to Know About Rolex Hulk

    If you ever have the slightest interest in luxury watches, you would have seen a Rolex Submariner Hulk watch. It has already become instant for people to relate to the Rolex Hulk whenever mentioning a green watch. The Rolex Submariner Date 116610LV, aka “Rolex Hulk,” first debuted in 2010. It is the Rolex Submariner with a green ceramic bezel and green dial. Together with the “classic” Rolex Submariner 116610LN, this green Hulk Rolex watch has been released as special anniversary pieces for the brand. The Rolex green Hulk watch raised worldwide discussion and has become one of the most sought-after and popular Rolex watches. However after many years of speculation of the discontinuing of the Rolex Hulk, it finally happened in 2020. A new Rolex green Submariner 126610LV has been released to replace the Hulk, but the dial has become black instead of a green sunburst.  Although this legendary watch has been discontinued, people all over the world just can’t get enough of it. The Rolex Hulk price has skyrocketed in the pre-owned market. For this desirable Rolex Hulk Singapore would be one of the possible places to buy one at cheapest prices. Let us explore more on this ever-popular watch and see if it is worth it for you to get it.  History of Rolex Submariner Hulk 116610LV The First Rolex Green Submariner Introduced in 2010, the Rolex 116610LV has stroked the market so drastically that people who don’t normally wear watches know about it.  Long before the debut of the Rolex Submariner Hulk, Rolex Submariner has already been an iconic watch with decades of history behind. Let’s go back to 1953. In that year Rolex developed its ultimate diver’s watch – Rolex Submariner. It is incredibly tough and ultra-reliable as a functional sports watch which you could also use for formal occasions.  Over the years, Rolex has even expanded the collection with different material variations including full gold and two-tone models. When we speak of Rolex stainless steel Submariner, it was only limited to a black dial and bezel. It was only until 2003 the Submariner got its first green member.  In 2003, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner collection, Rolex released the Submariner Date 16610LV featuring a bright green aluminum bezel. The “LV” in the reference number 16610LV stands for “lunette verde”– which means “green bezel” in French. By using the colour of Rolex brand, 16610LV, also known as Rolex Kermit gave a completely new look for Rolex Submariner.  The Launch of Green Cerachrom Submariner 116610LV The Rolex Cerachrom Submariner generation began in 2008, the first models are the ones with precious metal such as yellow gold (Submariner ref. 116618) and white gold (Submariner ref. 116619). Finally in 2010, Rolex introduced stainless steel Submariner watches with Cerachrom bezels – the two 116610 models. Rolex Submariner 116618LB Just like its previous generation, Rolex offered the 2 options of a black steel Submariner and a green steel Submariner. However, unlike its predecessor Rolex Kermit 16610LV, the new 116610LV featured the green Cerachrom bezel with a matching green sunburst dial. Thanks to its all-green color profile and large super case, the Rolex lover quickly related it to the Hulk. The “Rolex Hulk” name has been widely spreaded since then.  The Discontinuing of Rolex Submariner Hulk After a decade of production, Rolex stopped the production of the Submariner 116610LV in 2020. The brand replaced it with the brand new Submariner 126610LV featuring a 41mm steel case, a green Cerachrom bezel, and a black dial. Because of the similar outlook with the Rolex Kermit 16610LV, the new green Submariner 126610LV is often called Ceramic Kermit, Cermit, or Super Kermit. Features of Rolex Submariner 116610LV Photo Credit: Instagram When talking about the green Hulk Rolex watch, people would often conclude it with the term “form and function”. Indeed the Rolex Hulk is the rare green Rolex, there is so much more to this watch than its eye-catching colour. It is also one of those in the generation that features a list of the “firsts” for the Submariner collection including Super Case, Chromalight display, Cerachrom bezel, solid-link bracelet, and Glidelock clasp. Super Case Rolex 116610LV featured the classic 40mm case that all Submariner Date models preceding it, yet the shape of the case was modified. Together with its 11661x family members, the 116610 Submariner wears a thicker case known as the “Super Case” with fatter lugs, a stouter crown guard, and a wider bezel. The case of the Submariner 116610LV is made from 904L Oystersteel which is more corrosion-resistant. Of course like all the Submariner watches, the Hulk is water-resistant to 300 meters with the Rolex patented Triplock screw-down winding crown and a solid screw-down caseback. Dial Rolex Hulk 116610LV Indeed the most outstanding characteristics of this Rolex Hulk must be its green bezel and dial. It is until now the first and the only Submariner to feature such a green sunburst dial. This distinctive green dial with sunburst finishing features the Mercedes luminescent hands. As one of the family members of Submariner Date, the date window is placed at the 3 o’clock position.  Cerachrom Bezel Instead of the aluminum bezel of previous models, the bezel of the Rolex green  Submariner 116610LV is made of Rolex’s proprietary Cerachrom material. This special ceramic used by Rolex is made of zirconium dioxide, also known as zirconia. It is an exceptionally hard-wearing ceramic alloy with high corrosion resistance. Whereas the older style bezels will eventually fade and scratch over time, the corrosion-resistant  The markings of Hulk’s green bezel are coated in platinum leaving a fantastic shiny finish to the bezel. With the fine polishing, the Cerachrom bezel is able to keep the distinctive green colors, no matter how long the watch lives. Moreover, the zero marker on the bezel features a Chromalight luminescent capsule so it can be read in the darkest conditions. Of course, like all modern divers, the Submariner’s time-lapse bezel is unidirectional in motion (120 clicks) to avoid underestimating immersion times and it is graduated to 60 minutes. Oyster Bracelet Rolex has been using its special Oyster bracelet for many of its collections for decades. The solid bracelet has always been paired with the Submariner over the last 60 years too. Together with the new Super Case, the Oyster bracelet for the Rolex Hulk has been upgraded as well. Made of the Rolex 904L Oystersteel, the three-link Oyster bracelet comes together with its exclusive Glidelock system. It can help the wearers adjust the length of the bracelet with ease.  Rolex In-house 3135 Movement The Rolex Submariner 116610LV housed its Caliber 3135 self winding mechanical movement. It features a paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring and the perpetual motor enables bidirectional self-winding. It is also a certified superlative caliber like all the Rolex in-house movements with a guaranteed precision of -2/+2 sec/day, with a 48-hour power reserve.  Conclusion Despite its discontinuation, we can expect that the status as well as the price of the one and only one Rolex Hulk 116610LV would never fall. As long as you have a chance to get it, no matter a new one or a pre-owned, you will never regret it.  Read More: Your Ultimate Guide to the Rolex Submariner Rolex Explorer: The Brand’s Underrated Tool Watch?

  11. Rolex Explorer: The Brand’s Underrated Tool Watch?

    Rolex Explorer: The Brand’s Underrated Tool Watch?

    It has been over 70 years since Rolex Explorer made its debut. It is known as one of the Rolex professional watches that everyone might have once seen.  Since the 1930s with its patented Rolex Oyster Perpetual had been developing its professional series of watches each by each. For example, Rolex Explorer, Rolex Submariner, Rolex GMT Master and the Rolex Milgauss. The renowned collections all came to market in the same era at that time. The Rolex Submariner is water resistant to over 200m depth. The Rolex Milgauss is more resistant to magnetic interference while Rolex chronograph watches provide the split-second timing for adventurers to avoid rolling boulders.  However, the Rolex Explorer is the less mentioned one among its super famous fellows. During these decades the Explorer has been through several evolutions. The new Rolex Explorer 2016 introduced in Baselworld 2016 is no exception.  We are going to take a look at some of the key references of this subtler Rolex watch.  History of Rolex Explorer Photo Credit: Rolex Official As early as the 1930s, Rolex had been sponsoring the explorers and mountaineers who attempted to summit Mount Everest. Rolex created the pre-models of Explorer in honor of Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay’s cresting the summit of Mount Everest in May 29, 1953.  Hilary wore the watch from the English watch company Smith’s to summit Everest, while Norgay wore his Rolex to the summit. Although we do not know which watch was the first to actually summit Everest, Rolex still made its name widespread after this success.  Launch of Early Rolex Explorer models The early Rolex would release models to test and then modify them based on the feedback from the market. Rolex ref. 6298 is a good example for it as the early model of Rolex Explorer. This Rolex 6298 is usually referred to as a “pre-Explorer” model. It was an updated version of the Oyster Perpetual Ref 6028 with a COSC-certified movement. Rolex also produced this watch with an Explorer famous 3-6-9 dial style.  Since the 1950s, Rolex had begun building up its new adventure collection while experimenting with different designs and construction. Actually, Rolex had already registered the trademark of the name ‘Explorer’ on January 26, 1953. With the success of Mount Everest summit, it was the right time to announce it as an official collection. Rolex had successfully marketed the Explorer and gained the prime position among the professional watches.  Later that same year, Rolex Ref 6350 and Ref 6150 went into production and further enriched the collection. These references began the use of the 3-6-9 numbers and the ‘Explorer’ name on the dial. The two models are almost identical to the most-known Rolex Explorer but still with a few key differences.  Between 1953 and the present, the Explorer has kept evolving but the main design stayed true to the first model. All the little details and modifications in the Explorer’s history only make the watch more profound.  Launch of the Rolex 214270 Rolex 214270BKASO With its smaller case, simple design and functionality, it is true that Rolex Explorer 1 had been overshadowed by Rolex Explorer 2 and other fancier Rolex sport watches.  In 2010, they’re Rolex Explorer 224270 with a more modern 39mm case established to replace the ones of 36mm in 1953. It has surprised the Rolex lovers with its modification. It is considered to be one of the most accessible Rolex watches and an excellent choice as a everyday watch. Features of Rolex Explorer 214270 The current Rolex Explorer 214270 has already been released for more than ten years. Let’s take a look on how amazing is this underrated Rolex watch. Size The consistent 36mm case had been a hallmark of the Rolex Explorer for long. After almost six 60 years of being a “smaller” Rolex watch, the 36mm case updated to 39mm for Rolex 214270. It is probably because of the big watch trend led by brands like Panerai and Hublot, Rolex made this modification to meet the need of the market.  Many Rolex lovers welcomed this change of Rolex Explorer ii for larger case size at the time. Rolex later also updated the Rolex 214270 with longer hands to complete the look. It is called the Mark 2 (or Mk2) dials among the Rolex collectors Case & Dial As a Rolex steel watch, the Explorer 214270 features a Rolex special Oystersteel case and matching bracelet. With its patented screw-down, twin-lock crown, the watch ensures water resistance to 100m depth.  Photo Credit: Rolex Official The dial layout continues the design of its predecessor. The hands and indexes feature Chromalight, an exclusive luminescent material of Rolex that emits a long-lasting blue glow in dark.  The polished shining bezel that frames the black dial contributes a more classic look for the watch. It makes a nice complement to the white gold surrounds on the indexes. Its brushed links of the Oyster bracelet completed the look with a hint at its robust heritage. Functions Photo Credit: Rolex Official As Rolex marketed the watch, the Explorer watch is intended to be used for rough and tough conditions such as in temperatures as low as -20C to as high as +40C. It can even endure extreme conditions like snow, sleet, rain, sun, and high altitudes. With its excellent chronometer specifications, it is a watch designed for the rugged. Rolex Explorer houses a Rolex in-house self-winding calibre 3132. It features a paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring and the perpetual motor enables bidirectional self-winding. It is also a certified superlative chronometer like all the Rolex in-house movements with a guaranteed precision of -2/+2 sec/day. The Underrated Rolex Explorer In the eyes of many collectors, the appeal of the Rolex Explorer Ref 214270 is more like a casual dress watch other than a hardcore tool watch. With its simple design and classic choice of color, the Rolex Explorer is very appealing to a broad audience. Despite the lack of discussion, Rolex Explorer is suitable for all occasions with satisfying functions. It can be a great choice for you if you need a Rolex as your everyday watch.
