Rolex Submariner 16610LV mark 0
When the 16610LV has been presented in Basilea in 2003, the watch shown in the fair wasn't a classic fat 4. The main feature of this watch was the holes inside the lugs, absent from the other 16610LV.
When the watch has been regularly produced, the offial dealers received the 16610LV without lug holes. Even the earliest fat 4 (serial Y8*) have been produced without lug holes.
