 Congratulations and wear that beauty often @academe ! Had lunch with close friends earlier today and got the chance to try this one on.  I've been jonesing for the all YG Sub with blue cerachrom bezel insert + blue sunburst dial, but this one just catapulted itself close to, or right to the top of the list. 
 Hahahahah - that's about right!
 Boom.
Lovely to catch up on a hundred or so pages of TWAT - have been on vacation this past week.     @Novelty77 - you've been on quite a tear!  It's hard to deny the Hunger when it's screaming at you (been there), but this year I didn't get any new watches (well, except one that might be coming in the next few weeks or so), and it's really given me time to enjoy the ones I got through a few rounds of "frillyvolousness" as @mimo called it.     I'm not in the habit of selling...

Heavy rain forecast in NYC today. Didn't want to get the DBlue wet, so wore this one.
 Excellent choice. I don't have a BLNR but I have a bunch of SubCs.  The wife uses the SubC LV exclusively, and it has the dings to show for it all.
 SubC = Submariner Ceramic BLNR = blue black bezel GMT, stands for "BLeu / NoiR " LV = Could refer to either SubC LV ref 116610 or the 50th anniversary Sub (not ceramic).   LV is "Lunette Verde" = green bezel.
Nick is a great guy, and I was just telling him yesterday about how much I enjoyed his post about William Gibson. @Belligero - you're telling me you didn't enjoy Jack's piece about the Nautilus pen?Speaking of Nautilii, this just landed on my wrist 15 minutes ago while walking around Fifth Avenue (the dragonfly, not the watch):
