Rolex Submariner "Hulk" Hands-On; Omega Tourbillon Showcase & Guide To Collection Watches

Contact tmosso@thewatchbox.com for pricing and availability; Either I have it, or I can get it! Luxury preowned watches from Rolex, Omega, and Audemars Piguet headline a collection of spectacular timepieces from the incomparable WatchBox inventory. Host Tim Mosso showcases and explains a set of luxury watches for every budget, personal style, and wrist size. Independent horology – and haute horlogerie – also features prominently courtesy of watches from F.P. Journe, Christophe Claret, and MB&F. This is YouTube’s only curated luxury watch collector’s experience! The Rolex Submariner “Hulk” is a one-generation sensation. This 40mm steel dive watch is mechanically identical to the standard Rolex Submariner Date of its era, but the unique combination of a green Cerachrom ceramic bezel insert and a “green gold” sunburst dial created a pop culture sensation. Watch collectors covet the famed “green Submariner,” and this model dominates discussion on watch community forums and social media. With the arrival of the 2020 Rolex Submariner “Kermit” and the discontinuation of the Submariner “Hulk,” the 116610LV has become a genuine investment-level watch purchase. With no clear ceiling on value and no reason for interest to decline, this Rolex Sub is a dive watch to buy for enjoyment with an eye towards the future. Omega watches are the traditional rival to Rolex, and Omega has one champion for which the giant of Geneva has no direct answer: a tourbillon. Since 1994, the Omega Central Tourbillon – now part of the De Ville model family – has represented the ultimate watch from a brand whose catalog spans everything from dive watches to NASA-issued pilot chronographs. From the summit of Omega’s Olympus, the De Ville Central Tourbillon combines the reliability of a standard Omega Speedmaster or Seamaster with genuine haute-de-gamme refinements. This 38.7mm platinum flying tourbillon includes a rare COSC chronometer certification; most tourbillon builders are reluctant to put their prestige watches to the test. Omega adds automatic winding, a 45-hour power reserve, and a dial-side movement with exquisite hand-finishing – something Rolex does not offer. The Omega Central Tourbillon includes two superimposed sapphire discs with printed hands that “orbit” the tourbillon and indicate the time. Two crowns are provided; the one on the case flank winds the movement, and the one on the caseback sets the time. • 30:37 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 26480TI.OO.A027CA.01 $32,950 o Titanium, blue dial, 2019 novelty, unique trial design • 28:31 Breitling Premier B01 Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition AB0134101C1A1 o Email tmosso@thewatchbox.com for pricing • 25:08 Breitling Chronomat B01 Rouleaux Bracelet AB0118A71G1P1 blue dial 42mm o Email tmosso@thewatchbox.com for pricing • 11:35 Christophe Claret Maestro MTR.DMC16.111 $49,950 o 42mm, titanium, big date, memory function, 7-day power reserve • 19:32 F.P.
