ROLEX 'HULK' COLLECTION ROARS INTO BONHAMS

SINGLE-OWNER COLLECTION OF EVERY YEAR OF THE SUBMARINER MODEL IN DEDICATED SALE

A single-owner collection of 11 Rolex Submariner 'Hulk' watches – all New Old Stock and never-worn – will be offered in a dedicated online sale by Bonhams starting next week (August 12).

The Rolex diving watches, all reference 116610LV, represent eleven years of production from 2010, when the reference was launched, to 2020. The 'Hulks', so-called due to their green ceramic dial and rugged case lugs, are all accompanied by their Rolex boxes, papers and receipts.

Nate Borgelt, Head of Department, Bonhams Watches America, said: "We are excited to offer unworn examples of the Rolex Hulk in a sale concept not seen before, allowing collectors to get their hands on what can only be described as discontinued but new watches. In the current market, where obtainability and condition are king, these Hulks check all the boxes for discerning collectors and daily wearers alike."

The timepieces will be offered in a dedicated online sale on Bonhams.com, from 12 to 22 August, with estimates ranging from $30,000 – 40,000 to $40,000 – 60,000 for the 2010 edition (selected lots offered at No Reserve).

Completing the collection is a limited edition quarter-scale (approx. 2.5 ft) 'Hulk' statue by NMK Studios, which is offered at no reserve, with an estimate of $2,000 – 3,000.

The collection will be on view at the Bonhams Quail Auction of collector cars, August 17-19, as a nod to the vendor who is a car collector and watch enthusiast.
