The original green submariner 16610LV thread. LV MEMBERS CLUB

future LV members are OFCOURSE allowed too

Guys,

We have quite a few posts about this ORIGINAL 16610LV the last weeks. Some of us were even screaming for an 16610LV subforum

Why not start this thread and post ALL related things here. So pictures, facts, rumours, EVERYTHING as long as it is concerning our discontinued 16610LV.

A lot of people on this forum are in the 16610LV green sub club. So as an ode to this imo most stunning variation of the classic sub ever KEEP THIS THREAD ALIVE.

We should have hundreds of replies and over 100.000 views

Let us try !

Also, I think there should be a club for folks who have an LV but have swapped a black insert in

Can we still be a member if we flipped the classic

for the contemporary?

Or is this cause for banning?

Now I like this thread!! I don't have amy proper pics of my LV yet, so I'll hold off on posting pics. I let my sister borrow my Nikon DSLR weeks ago...

I think best LV accuisition story goes to you, L-16610 (sorry I don't know your first name).

I hope to have and love this watch within one year of this post. I have to admit, at first, I disliked the green. But now, it's all I can think of!

I plan on getting one soon so count me in. I seem to have a dilema though. I like the black maxi dial on the LV but I like the new green bezel better than the original.

With all due respect. I think that your watch belongs to a different "BREED"" and for that reason alone, you and everyone with a Sub-C should create their own "CLUB"...
That's what I would do if I had your Rolex....

That was my very first thought when I read the original post..... along the lines of...."well, I guess that leaves me out....".

Never quite understood the "club LV" or "LV club" reference as there really isn't one. It's like "club Airking" or "club mid-size Datejust". There is no club I've been able to find. Oh yeah, I love my LV.
