Rolex Submariner 116610LV Comparison Between Noob V9 and ARF V2

Like the black Submariner 116610LN, 116610LV is also very popular among Rolex watch fans in various watch forums, both 116610LN and 116610LV are the Rolex watches that are mostly replicated by a lot of factories in Chinese market, in my memory, these factories are BP, J12, ARF, Noob, V9, ZZF, KSF, DJF, etc, I can not even count. However, among so many factories, their quality is different, so the price is different. Today, I will take Submariner 116610LV for an example, and picked up two best replicas to make a comparison review, hope you can learn something that will help you to make decision when need to buy one.

About two best replicas of Submariner 116610LV, one is made by Noob, its latest version is V9, the other is made by AR factory, the latest version is V2. In their 116610LV, both Noob and AR can install Asia clone 3135 and Asia clone ETA movement in it, today, I will choose the model with Asia clone ETA movement to make this comparison.

Case

I got both watches before, and I think AR makes a better case. When I first got the ARF 116610LV on hand, I loved it, simply speaking, it gives me a genuine feeling. You know, I am not a watch expert and I will not make a very detailed and close comparsion between a replica and genuine, so the first feeling a replica watch gives me is very important. Although both Noob and AR factory make Green Submariner 116610LV with 904L stainless steel, and the case thickness is also the same, which is 13mm, but the case finish of AR is better than Noob, I also feel more comfortable when wearing the ARF 116610LV.

Bezel

The bezel of ARF 116610LV is better. First, both Noob and AR factory use green ceramic insert on the bezel, the green color used by both factory is very close to that of genuine watch. However, the polishing of the bezel is better on AR factory, and there is no gap between the bezel and case, on some V9 models Noob factory published, there is tiny gap existing, hope they can improve this flaw next time. Finally, the luminous coating on bezel markers has a platinum color tone like genuine on both Noob and ARF.

Dial

Both Noob and ARF have their own advantages on the green dial. The white printings on Noob are more accurate than ARF, after all Noob has upgraded this replica to V9 edition, every time when they upgraded this watch, the dial printings could be improved. About the date window, AR has a more neat date font, when you first see it, you will choose AR, however, if you carefully with genuine, Noob has a correct date font. At last, about the hands, Noob makes them with iron, and the iron sheet is very thin, while AR makes them with stainless steel, so, whether in material or finish, the hands of AR are better than Noob.

Dial Lume

Both Noob and AR factories make dial lume correct.

Bracelet

On the ARF V2 Edition 116610LV, the bracelet finish has been completed to be perfect, it can be even exchanged with genuine watch. Although being made with 904L stainless steel both in Noob and ARF, but Noob can not achieve such a high quality level in bracelet finish. On every piece of 116610LV Submariner AR factory has published, the bracelet fits case perfectly and no gap, but the gap between case and bracelet may exist on some pieces of Noob 116610LV.

Movement

In Noob 116610LV, the movement is an Asia ETA 2836 automatic, which is fully gold plated, while in ARF 116610LV, the movement is Asia ETA 2824-2 automatic, actually both movements are made in China, the stabality and accuracy are good, can not be compared. While Noob offers a super clone 3135 movement option for this watch, this movement makes the watch have the same time and date adjustment like genuine, I think this is the only advantage of Noob 116610LV, but I do not recommend my clients to buy Noob Submariner with Super Clone 3135 movement, because this movement has a high repair rate.

Package

Like genuine watch, AR factory will offer one plastic box for their Rolex including this Submariner 116610LV, while Noob does not have it.

Quality Check

Absolutely AR factory does better in quality check. In watch quality check before out of factory, Noob is not that strict like before. Now, many customers in forums like repgeek and replica-watch complained that their Submariners have problems after receiving the package within one week, they complained that the bracelet broke from the point that connects the case, lume coating on bezel markers falls off, etc., these complaints are true, while in all my clients who have bought the Submariner 116610LV from AR factory, no complaint ultill now.

After-sale Service

I do not know how is the after-sale service of AR factory, but Noob’s is very bad. In July, one of my clients sent one watch back to Noob for repairing, he waited almost one and half month for the factory to fix it, I must say that the repairing of Noob is too slow.

Conclusion

Both factories have their own advantages, but for beginners, I recommend ARF 116610LV more, because the first feeling it gives to you is more real, the quality and texture of the watch is super. I did not say bad things about Noob, they are a big factory, I have to admit, but if they can not do a better customers service and quality check, I think they will be very difficult to keep the pace with AR factory.

New Arrival Replica Rolex GMT-Master II 126710 BlueRed Ceramic Watch from Noob Factory

Noob Replica Rolex GMT-Master II 126710

Today, I was just back from our traditional Mid-Autumn Festival, it is time to share the latest news in our watch industry, within these days, there were a lot of new watches published in our market. For example, Noob published Super Clone 4130 Daytona V3 edition and GMT-Master II 126710 Blue/Red, OM factory unveiled a lot of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches, VS factory made some stunning Omega Seamaster watches, etc. Among these new watches, the most attractive should belong to the GMT-Master II made by Noob factory.

At the beginning of 2019, Noob only published one Rolex GMT-Master II, that is Blue/Black 116710BLNR, that is the only one GMT-Master II from Noob made with 904L stainless steel. After that, Noob put their emphasis on Daytona watches, in September, the Daytona products with 904L stainless steel and Super Clone 4130 movement have been upgraded to V3 edition, we must admit that currently Noob factory has the best replica Daytona. However, in researching and developing other Rolex models, especially GMT-Master II, Noob has fallen behind other factories like GMF. However, the 126710 Blue/Red GMT II which Noob just published saved face for them.

In the past several years, Rolex GMT-Master Batman 116710BLNR has always been the most popular GMT watch. Till 2019, a lot of new Rolex GMT-Master II models were published, there were also a lot of factories manufacturing GMT-Master II, however, among so many watch manufacturers, no one is able to make them with 904L stainless steel and the same Rolex movement at the same time, except Noob. So, even you need to wait for a bit longer to get your ordered watches from Noob, sometimes it is worth to wait.

Noob 126710 Case Back

Now, back to the review of this GMT-Master II, like other GMT-Master II from Rolex, this one is also measured to be 40mm in case diameter, the case thickness is 12.5mm. Both case and jubilee bracelet are made of 904L stainless steel, the bezel uses high quality ceramic material, it is in blue/red color, actually the red looks like brown, the bezel markers have platinum coating that will never fade. About movement, Noob installed a clone 3285 in this replica Rolex GMT, this is the first 3285 movement in our market that has correct hand stack and adjustable hour hand, its functions are completely the same as genuine Rolex 3285.

Noob’s Rolex products are in good quality, some models represent the highest watch-making level in our market, some models have become the legend, for example, the black Submariner 116610LN. About this GMT-Master, if you pursue perfection in case design, dial details and even movement function, then choose from Noob. However, as I said before, the GMT-Master with Super Clone movement from Noob is not that stable, my clients who bought Noob GMT-Master before now all had some issues on their watches, what I want to say is that Noob still has not developed one movement for GMT-Master that is as stable as the Super Clone 4130 for their Daytona products.

V6 Factory Replica Hublot Big Bang Ceramic Watch with Titanium Bezel Clone HUB4100 Movement

Replica Hublot Big Bang Black Ceramic Watch

Till today, I have written a lot of watches reviews that almost cover each Swiss brand, among them, I liked Panerai most in the past, but after reviewing these watches, it seems like I have been tired of seeing their round case, and in recent weeks, I found Hublot is more interesting, its porthole-shaped case attracted me deeply in recent days, with rubber band, although Hublot Big Bang has a big 44mm case, it can still fit my thin wrist perfectly.

The Hublot replica watch is made by V6 factory, it is a full black Big Bang from Hublot, an old model, I did not introduce this Hublot before, but I found it is still attractive, maybe some people are interested in such full black Hublot watch, which looks very cool. This Big Bang is the most classic model that can show the fusion watch-making concept of Hublot, because the watch is made of three different materials at least.

First, the 44mm case uses black ceramic, actually only the four lugs are made with black ceramic that is polished, while the middle part of the case is brushed stainless steel. The bezel is full Titanium made, stainless steel scews on the bezel with polished face. Please check the back, you can see engravings of “Ceramic”, “Titanium” and Hublot Logo on the connector of case and band.

The dial is well done and shows good hierarchy that you can only see on a good replica watch. The black dial base plate meets the black color of ceramic case and rubber strap, while these three-dimensional hour markers in stainless steel tone exactly echo with the Titanium color tone of bezel. Every small dial is not only finished delicately, but also can work like originals of Hublot Big Bang. The date window is opened at 4:30, it has correct construction and font thickness, white font color also increases the visibility of the whole black dial.

Hublot HUB4100 Clone Movement

At last, the replica Hublot is installed with an Asia Valjoux 7750 movement, it is actually a common Chinese chronograph movement that has been widely used in replica watches industry, however, the movement has a considerable stability, besides, V6 factory makes correct decoration on movement plates and auto rotor. We call such decorated movement clone HUB4100. Actually such type of clone movement is greatly different from the the P.9000 developed by VS factory. The former is just added with correct decoration of genuine HUB4100, while the clone P.9000 is independently developed by VS factory according to Panerai P.9000 Calibre, while due to technical limitation, it is impossible for a watch manufacturer to develop a super clone HUB4100, so the factory can only achieve this level by adding some decorated plates.

Hublot Big Bang Watch Test

About this Hublot replica watch, it has a good quality, maybe very close to the Classic Fusion made by WWF and F16. For chronograph models, Hublot Big Bang is also one of the watches I recommend.

VS Factory Replica Panerai PAM 799 CarboTech Submersible Titanium Watch with Super Clone P.9010

Replica Panerai PAM 799

The latest Panerai replica watches published by VS factory are all CarboTech Submersible, they are PAM 979, PAM 1616 and PAM 616. Among them, PAM 979 and PAM 1616 were published by Panerai in 2019, while PAM 616 replica was firstly made by VS factory in 2017, but they just made improvement and unveiled the V2 edition. Today, I want to show you another Panerai CarboTech Submersible watch, it is PAM 799.

Like other CarboTech Submersible, PAM 799 also has a large case, which is up to 47mm in diameter. Different from PAM 979 and PAM 1616, the case of PAM 799 is made of Titanium material, only the bezel uses forged carbon. Titanium case is fully brushed, it is a bit thick, almost 16mm, I do not know how thick the genuine watch is, may be much thinner. Please check the watch from side, the bezel adds a huge thickness to the case, we can see that the studs are bit higher above the bezel, while the crystal is completely in the same horizontal line with the bezel, this is the same as genuine watch.

The dial is black, the blue color we see on hour markers and hands is actually one type of luminous material, it is fully filled in these hour markers so that the dial will have a strong and long-lasting lume light in dark conditions. The dial is simple but you still can find some flaws, check carefully on these hour markers, some or maybe one of them is not fully filled with the luminous coating, you can see tiny gap. The small second hand on the subdial at 9:00 is absolutely running smoothly.

Inside the case back, it is a Super Clone P.9010 movement independently developed by VS factory. About this movement, I have talked too much about it, in outlook, it looks completely the same as genuine P.9010 Calibre, even the balance wheel is set in right position at 7 o’clock. In function, the clone movement still can not have the same power reserve as original, you have been already very lucky if the watch you bought can run an entire day without winding.

Actually, the gap between replica and genuine is still big, even there are many quality replica watches, we have to face the truth that replica can not be made 100% the same as original.
