Hands on with Rolex Submariner Hulk 116610LV, this watch is the newer version to the 50th Anniversary Rolex Submariner 16610LV that was launched 2003 a truly classic piece which is in a previous post you can click on link above. This version is the totally been transformed to the previous model and is loved now in my opinion, took me a while to get with the changes to ceramic bezel, green dial and bezel, new glide lock bracelet etc…
The “Hulk” its nick name for obvious reasons the green dial green bezel is stunning and the dial contrasts in different angles from dark green to light green as picture below.
The green ceramic bezel works well hard wearing very difficult to scratch of mark, the case size is still 40mm but the shoulders have got wider and longer which gives the watch slightly bigger appearance on the wrist. The one mod I liked by Rolex was if you look at the dial face on it appears black like the older Lv. The watch is Cosc rated to depth of 300 metres as it should for professional divers piece with long standing history.
The bracelet glide lock system has been totally re-designed a lot more robust and easy to move the strap to fit you wrist as the old one was a little fiddly.
The watch retains the big hour plot markers and big hour hand overall a great piece by Rolex lovers all over the world. Gets my vote!
The wrist shot!
