I was wondering the same thing. 16610 vs the suffix. What is the difference?

The initials LN stand for the french words Lunette Noir = Black Dial (LB= Blue, LV=Green etc).

So, there is no actual difference between those two models, except that for the second one it's known the dial color.

No, "C" indicates that it has a ceramic bezel. So far all Submariners with ceramic bezels have a date function. There is currently no definitive information regarding the fate of the no-date Sub, it may be updated with a ceramic bezel or it may be discontinued. It hasn't been listed on the Rolex website for quite some time.

The GMT Master II was updated with a ceramic bezel in 2007.

The white gold Sub with ceramic bezel was introduced in 2008.

The new Rolex Submariner shown at Basel 2012 is a no-date ceramic bezel Sub. Should be hitting AD's by Fall of this year...

What is the "T" for on the case between the lugs next to the model? I haven't seen this covered before. Thanks

just out of curiosity, are the weights of these watches the same with SEL and hollow end links? You would think that the Subs with the older 93150 and 501B would be slightly less in weight

The T is simply for a non lug hole case nothing more

Sorry, a M serial number means 2007/2008 i think.

Yes, Z is 2007 and V is 2008 and the pic by the OP doesn't have an engraved rehaut but a M serial is a 116610 and does have an engraved rehaut. Even some Rolex models from 2003 and 2005 F and D serials have engraved rehaut. Last year for the 16610 was 2010 as well as the first year for model 116610.
