The Rolex Submartiner Hulk is the controversial follow up to the Rolex Kermit Submariner. The Rolex Kermit was produced to commemorate the 50 year anniversary of the Submariner model and features a green aluminum bezel (insert) with black maxi-dial. After the Kermit was discontinued circa 2011 or so, The Hulk followed in the Kermit's footsteps with an updated design and look. With it kelly green ceramic bezel and matching kelly green dial, it became a polarizing topic among Rolex collectors. Love it or hate it, the Hulk is the model that first breached the Super Heroes universe only to open the doors for the Batman and Batgirl sport models! Word is the new 41mm Sub with ceramic green bezel and black dial (the replacement to the Hulk) has already been nicknamed for the Green Hornet!! Here is your chance to own a piece of Rolex History.
A word about the Hulk Submariner--Buyers beware, there are a handful of Franken-Hulks in circulation. These are authentic Rolex Ceramic Date Submariners, Ref 116610 however they have been modified with custom aka 'after-market' green ceramic bezel inserts and green dials. The best way to confirm you have an authentic Hulk Sub and not a Franken-Hulk is via the original Rolex Warranty Card. Original Rolex Hulk models have an LV at the end of their reference number on the warranty card and may also have "GREEN' printed on the front side of the warranty card. In the case of the original Rolex Hulk, LV which stands for Lunette Vert (vert = green in french) is a reference to the Green dial/bezel. If you dont have a warranty card with your Hulk, it may be difficult to confirm if you have an original Hulk model.
