    Congrats, stupendous watch. Look perfect on you. I think the updated Sub-C was a great move by Rolex.
    Nice AT, Keen.

    2nd that, they are mostly china made hype and they aren't worth much on the 2nd market better to go with Sunnto, better quality period!

    Looks like a perfect fit. Its a watch that will never go out of style. Enjoy it!!!
    +1...but I may be a bit biased as an owner! I also prefer the LV to LVc.

    The green dial of the LV c is nice...but I'm not of fan of the shade of green that the ceramic bezel is, its too light in color and too flat looking in terms of color. I wish it were a deeper, darker color.
    Frills, in the last 2 photos... I feel like I should lend Kate a hand [​IMG]
    The 3970J is lovely. I love the heft of platinum, but sometimes a little warmth from YG is nice too!
    I like the green dial of the Sub LVc...its the bezel that I dislike. I do think the blue/black GMTC is a hot looking watch. As for the DJII and the DDII....the proportions look wrong. The bezel and case look bloated. The standard DJ is classic in size and proportions. A good balance between sport and dress...while the DJII and DDII look bulbous and distorted. I see the DJII as a lazy effort to be part of the big watch band wagon.
    Very nice! Thanks for sharing a photo. Its been a while since I've seen one of those.
    Absolutely stunning, although I wish it used a square or rectangular movement rather than just using their existing round stock for that piece. It would have made it just a bit more special and would have been cool with an exhibition back.
    The JDN is very nice. A friend of money has 1 in rose gold.

    This is another reason I like the LV instead of the LVC. If I ever get tired of the green bezel I can always swap it out for the black bezel. Even though Rolex maintains a tight control on parts the black bezel is a lot easier to get than the green bezel. I was able to get a black bezel at the same time I purchased my watch, I just haven't found the switch necessary as of yet. I really like the green bezel.


    The Maxi dial is a big plus on this older version also.

    I haven't seen an LV and LVc next to each other but I really like the LVc on its own. The green is over the top bright though as others have noted. I love the dial on it though...how would that look with a black bezel? I'd assume not the best but always nice to wonder.
