Today, I want to show a great work in our market, it is a big Rolex watch, the ultimate diving watch, nicknamed deepsea king I suppose. Yes, you will say, “I have bought this watch before, from another factory named Noob.”, when you see these pictures below. Previous replicas of this Rolex D-Blue 116660 are mainly made by Noob and BP factory, Noob’s version is the best. But here I am going to introduce the one from another new rising factory, which is AR. Compared with Noob 116660, this replica from AR factory has two big advantages that make it the best replica Rolex Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA D-Blue 116660 in the market, one is its 904L stainless steel material, the other is the real Swiss ETA 2824 automatic movement it is equipped with. Let’s check its specification first before we discuss further details.
Movement: Swiss ETA 2824 Automatic, 28800VPH, Hours, Minutes, Seconds and Date
Case: 904L Stainless Steel, 44mm*18mm
Bezel: Black Ceramic, Uni-directional Rotating, Correct Silver Markers Like Genuine
Crystal: Sapphire with Etched Crown at 6:00
Dial: Blue/Black with Superlumed Hour Markers and Hands
Band: 904L Stainless Steel with New Style Glidelock Clasp

Genuine Rolex DEEPSEA Sea-Dweller D-Blue is famous for its gradient dial, which is blue/black. On the replica, the gradient D-Blue dial has the same tone as genuine, it looks very natural. Like genuine, inner bezel ring features black engravings of “ORIGINAL GAS ESCAPE VALVE” and “RING LOCK SYSTEM”. The color transition from black to black is very natural. Dial color is ocean especially it features the green word “DEEPSEA”. Other printings on the dial are in white. Hour markers and hands are filled with white luminescence, they will emit strong blue light in the dark. There is silver edge for each hour marker and hand, which looks more three-dimensional, round markers have the same size and arc degree as genuine watch, a small date window is positioned at 3 o’clock, date font is centered and has the same size and thickness as original.
AR is the first factory to use 904L stainless steel on their replica Rolex, this time they also produce the replica 116660 with 904L steel, compared with 316L used on most replica watches, 904L stainless steel does better in corrosion resistance. On its 44mm case, AR factory shows the super drawing process, case corner is polished round and smooth, you can feel no difference compared it with a genuine. Case back is unique, the edge uses tooth design, black engravings will never fade, the most important thing is its round part on the center is brushed, this gives us a comfortable wearing feeling.
While the bezel is another part that is made better than Noob’s. Black ceramic bezel insert features silver markers, which are in same tone as those bezel markers on genuine. Bezel diving markers are also engraved in a correct depth, compared with other DEEPSEA D-Blue replicas from small factories, ARF really improved the bezel a lot. About the bezel pearl that is set on a big triangle mark, it looks plump but not very domed, this is closer to genuine bezel pearl.
At last, the replica is equipped with a Swiss ETA 2824 automatic movement, it is a real ETA, not fake. So the price of this replica will be a little high. Not like the replica from Noob with an Asian ETA or Super Copy 3135. So, this is the overall review of the latest replica Rolex DEEPSEA D-Blue 116660 from AR factory.
