After reports emerged that a Supreme x Rolex collaboration could arrive some time this year, Supreme lineups have been deserted as stans are saving every penny in anticipation of the big drop (not really though, it’s actually because the season is over). To help feed the hype and because we love to imagine what such a collaboration could look like, Highsnobiety has come up with five concepts of what might be awaiting us in the near future.
The following five models would make up the perfect range if this collaboration ever comes to fruition: a dark Rolex Submariner with “Supreme” on the dial that is reminiscent of 2013’s unofficial collaboration (see below); an Explorer II with a red and white strap, white dial and a red second hand; a GMT Master II with a black dial and white metal bracelet; a gold President with a white dial featuring a subtle Scarface reference and red hands; as well as a black and red Sea Dweller.
If reports are to be believed and the world’s most famous streetwear brand is collaborating on a range of apparel and watches with the world’s most famous luxury watchmaker, it will mark the first time that these two brands will come together in an official capacity.
Back in 2013, Supreme enlisted Bamford Watch Department to customize a Rolex Submariner, of which only 20 were rumored to be made for a price point between $10,000-$12,000 each, later ending up on the resell market for a cool $50,000. The watch featured a box logo engraved on the back and a “FUCK EM” slogan on the dial. See the timepiece in action below.
Flip through the concepts above and let us know in the comments which one you want to see become reality.
