Rolex Green Submariner 116610 LV Replica VS Gen

Today fortunately get a genuine green Submariner from my friend, because I own a replica one which I bought from a dealer online several years ago, the replica is V5 version from N, which is also called Noob factory in Chinese replica watch industry. So, next I am going to make a comparison between the replica and genuine watch.

Having seen the pictures above, do you recognize which watch is genuine, and which one is the replica?

Here, first the genuine has two different green colors on dial and bezel, Noob V5 replica Submariner has the same green color on bezel and dial. Second, the front crystal glass of the replica outwards too much, however, the genuine crystal is much lower.

Let’s check the crown logo printing on the dial. The color of crown logo is a little darker than that of Noob V5, genuine crown looks more refined with thinner “matchstick”. The inner bezel engraving is also different.

  1. The bezel compare pic looks crazy but your not holding the rep up at the same angle. The bezel and dial change with every nuance of light.
