The Rolex Submariner ‘Hulk’ Collection Auction by Bonhams

Mondani Web is extremely happy to present “The Rolex Submariner “Hulk” Collection” Online Auction by Bonhams ending from 22 August 2022.

Bonhams Watches is excited to offer a one-of-a-kind collection of Rolex watches, a collection which had a very specific criteria when being shaped. When Rolex introduced the Submariner 6536 in 1953, they were creating an icon of horology and expanding on their development of tool watches made for specific purposes, be it diving, spelunking, car racing or flight. The ‘Sub’ has gone through multiple evolutions in the 70 years since its introduction but through these evolutions each generation has become an icon in its own right, alongside all the other robust, archetypal tool watches that Rolex has produced. From 2010 to 2020, the 116610V (the reference for the first several years) and 116610LV, or known by collectors as the “Hulk,” reinvigorated and introduced new proportions and colors that adorned the industry’s quintessential dive watch.

The present collection was curated by a very discerning collector. With a keen eye for mechanics, design, and functionality, the collection being offered is not only within a particular collector’s extremely specific criteria, but also each watch is a time capsule from the year it was produced. There are few opportunities to obtain a decade old, discontinued, and unworn tool watch, and the Hulk collection on display allows just that.

In this article, we show you the top lots to give you a preview of some of the best for sale.
