The Sub LV has been my grail watch ever since it was first introduced. I've been a Submariner fan since the mid 80's when I first got certified for diving. Somewhere along the line the Sub sort of fell off my radar until Rolex introduced the LV and then it was love all over again. I still like the clean look of the 14060m dial without the date better, but not enough to pull me away from the green. My ideal would be an LV no date, but until that happens I'll be quite happy with this one. I didn't foresee any way that I'd get one anytime soon, but my situation changed a bit (no, I didn't win the lottery) and it worked out to get it now.
Just doing my part to stimulate the economy.
