Royal Oak is one of the most popular sports watches, in my opinion, its popularity is second only to Hublot Big Bang. Among so many Royal Oak models, the most classic is 15400, the Royal Oak 15400 has a diameter of 41mm, which is not too large and very suitable for most men. Royal Oak 15400 also has several dial versions of black, blue, white and grey, here it is the one with grey dial.
Royal Oak 15400 has a very simple design, so it is always the hottest model for various watch manufacturers to replicate. However, after seeing so many replicas from different factories, the best one is made by J12 factory, we call it JF here. No other factories can compete with JF, which still continuously improves this watch, now this one is the latest V5 edition they just published several days ago, with a lot of improvement upon previous version.
First, open the clasp and check the “AUDEMARS PIGUET” engravings, they are more three-dimensional, the sand-finished background is more delicate. The “AP” engraving on the buckle looks more three-dimensional, and it has the same sanded texture as genuine watch. Third, the checkers on the grey dial have the same size as genuine, each checker is closer to that on genuine in size.
I never doubt the case finish of Audemars Piguet replica watches from J12 factory, because they never let me down. The case finish JF has done on their Audemars Piguet watches can be even compared with that of genuine Audemars Piguet, even the Rolex replica watches made by AR, which is a sub-factory of J12, have already inherited the exquisite manufacturing process from JF.
About the movement, it is a big advantage of JF. The 15400 is equipped with a clone 3120 movement, which is firstly developed by JF. Because the movement is modified on the basis of a genuine Miyota 9015, so it originally has a super accuracy and stability. The auto rotor and movement plates are decorated by JF according to genuine Audemars Piguet 3120 Calibre, check those sculptures on the auto rotor, they are very close to genuine movement, the jewels on movement plate also have correct color tone.
Having been updated to V5 edition, every detail on this replica 15400 has reached to be perfect. It is the best version, you do not need to wait and it is time to buy now.
Now it is nearly the end of 2018, I think it is time to make a summary of this year. I know what you are really care about when buying a replica watch, you guys all want your replica to look closest to the genuine, so, today, I will publish an article about the top ten best-selling replica watches in 2018, they are also the best replica watches made in our market. This article will also be an ultimate guide for you to find the replica watch that looks closest to genuine. Let’s begin.
1 – Noob V9 Edition Rolex Submariner 116610LN
Rolex is the best-selling watch around the world, it is also the truth in replica watch field. Noob factory published V9 edition in 2018, which means this is the ninth time Noob has made improvement on this Submariner watch. Now V9 Submariner 1166710LN is made of genuine 904L stainless steel in case and bracelet, the bezel engravings are closer to genuine in color and thickness, V9 Submariner 116610LN has two movement options, Asia ETA 2836 and Super Clone 3135. V9 Rolex Submariner 116610LN from Noob ranks first in this top ten list.
2 – JF V4 Edition Royal Oak 15400
Audemars Piguet is a famous sports watch brand from Switzerland. Royal Oak is their iconic series and is well-known among watch fans due to its octagon-shaped bezel. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15400 is the second best seller, it is the V4 edition from JF. 15400 not only has a top quality case finish, but it is also equipped with a super clone 3120 movement that looks closest to genuine AP Cal. 3120. The JF V4 Royal Oak 15400 has three dial color options, black, white and blue.
3 – JF V9.5 Edition ROO Diver 15703
Royal Oak Offshore Diver 15703 ranks third. It is also made by JF, the newest V9.5 edition published in 2018. The watch is equipped with an Asia ETA 2824 automatic movement and one pair of rubber straps. JF makes the best AP replicas, you do not need to worry about the quality, it is superior and much higher than AP made by other factories.
4 – Noob V8 Edition GMT-Master II 116710BLNR Black/Blue
GMT-Master II 116710BLNR is always a hot watch. Now the replica has come to be V8 edition, made by Noob factory. Black and blue ceramic bezel makes it stand out among other Rolex GMT-Master II models. Now V8 uses an Asia ETA 2836 movement, which is very accurate and stable. GMT function also works the same way as genuine. In 2019, I think Noob will make an important improvement on it, they will use 904L stainless steel material on this watch at least. Let’s expect.
5 – ARF V2 Edition Sea-Dweller 126600 Single Red
Sea-Dewller Single Red 126600 was published by Rolex in 2017 Basel, so it is a new face in our market. It was called “Single Red” because the SEW-DWELLER printing is in red on the black dial. There are several factories manufacturing the replicas of this Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600, BP, AR, GM and Noob. Among them, AR makes the best replica Single Red 126600, Noob also makes it, but it does not use 904L stainless steel like AR factory. BP version has the price advantage but it only makes mid-quality Rolex replicas. While GM is a new watch manufacturer, it does not have too much replicating experience. So, if you want a 126600 replica, just choose from ARF. Besides, this is the V2 edition they published, every detail has been upgraded.
6 – Noob V6 Edition Planet Ocean 42mm Liquidmetal
Noob made this replica several years ago, it was very hot once being published. But the watch often does not have stocks, you need to wait for a long time after placing your order. Now the newest edtion comes to V6. It has several things improved. The dial now uses ceramic material, liquidmetal bezel like original, date font is corrected to be the same as genuine. The case back has high quality engravings now. The replica Planet Ocean now is equipped with an Asia ETA 2892, like the mostly used ETA 2824, this movement also has a high stability.
7 – Noob Daytona 116500
What watch will come in the seventh? Yes, it is another Rolex watch, the Daytona 116500. A lot of factories has made this watch, but Noob makes the best one. Among so many replicas, I will choose this one from Noob, not only because this factory has the richest experience in imitating Rolex, but they use the newest 904L stainless steel on this replica 116500. Three subdials all work, the chronograph is fully functional. I do not recommend you buy this Daytona watch from ARF, because their hour-chronograph hand and minute-chronograph hand are fixed, means the chronograph is not real. In the beginning of 2019, an important step ARF will make is on the chronograph function of their Super Clone Daytona Collection.
8 – ZF Aquanaut 5167
The next three watches are all made by ZF. You think Patek Philippe Nautilus should rank at this position, but I do not agree. The replica PP Aquanaut 5167 made by ZF looks closer to genuine than Nautolus. This watch has several options in dial and strap color. This is a replica with a see-through case back, but ZF has used a Miyota 9015 as a based movement, to decorate the auto rotor and plates, so it has a very close outlook to genuine PP Cal. 324.
9 – ZF Tudor Black Bay Red Bezel
ZF is the overlord in imitating Tudor Black Bay watches. This factory makes the best replica Tudor Black Bay. This one with a metal red bezel is the hottest replica among all Black Bay models. The following is its specification.
Movement: Asia ETA 2824-2 Automatic, 25 Jewels, 28800BPH
Case: 41mm*11mm, Solid 316L Stainless Steel
Bezel: Red Metal Bezel, Uni-directional Rotating Diving Bezel
Crystal: Sapphire, Dome-shaped, with Colorless Double AR Coating
Dial: Black Dial with Superlumed Hour Markers and Hands, Markers and Hands Have Golden Edge
Bracelet: Made of 316L Stainless Steel, Rivet Style
Water Resistant: 50m
10 – ZF Portuguese 7 Days
This watch sells very well, a lot of clients from Australia and Singapore bought this watch from me. ZF made the best IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve replica watch, first, the power reserve indicator is working, second, the power reserve has reached to be 3 days, although not 7 days like real, but the watch can work for you at least 3 days after being fully wound. It is a perfect dress watch for a lot of men who need to wear for a formal occasion. Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve has a lot of models, the dial has blue, white and black color options, the case has white stainless steel, yellow gold and rose gold, while the leather band also has several choices in color. The following photos are showing popular model IW500710. It is the latest replica from ZF, with a super clone 52010 movement.
This is my own top ten replica watches in 2018, every one has different opinion, you must also have a different top ten list, if so, please share your top ten watches with us in comment section. Actually, except those watches above, there are a lot of other replica watches that are in high quality and sold well, we can not list all of them here. Now, it is nearly the beginning of 2019, we hope that manufacturers will bring us more amazing replica watches in the coming new year. Thanks for reading my review.
Real tourbillon watch is very rare in our watch market. Most of websites claimed that they have tourbillon replica watches, but that’s not true. Their so-called tourbillon is just an opening window on the dial that displays the balance wheel, that’s not real tourbillon watch. Due to limitation of technology and cost, I seldom saw tourbillon function in replica watches, the factory usually spent a lot of money to install one tourbillon movement in a replica watch, so it means that they must sell the replica at a very high price, most people do not want to spend their money on such a replica watch that is not 100% perfect, so sometimes it is just a waste of time and money. There are two disadvantages on those tourbillon replica watches made in the past, first, the workmanship, which includes case finish, dial details and bracelet, is not good. Second, the tourbillon device is fake, not genuine. Today, I want to introduce one replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon watch that has completely solved these two issues, the replica here uses a genuine tourbillon movement and has a superior workmanship. The replica Audemars Piguet is made by J12 factory, we have already known that this factory is good at manufacturing the best quality replica Audemars Piguet watches, their Audemars Piguet replicas not only have a perfect case finish, but are also equiped with the latest developed super clone AP caliber. This time, J12 used their ingenuity in this Audemars Piguet replica watch and created such an accurate timepiece.
I would like to talk its beautiful dial first, it is in elegant blue, these checkers are refined. All stick hour markers use classic design of Royal Oak, long and slim. Hour markers and hand feature silver edge and are filled luminous material. You can see the tourbillon device is displayed through the window that is opened at 6 o’clock. I have compared the flying tourbillon device with that one on genuine watch, they are very close, almost the same. Look at the bridge that has two ends fixed on the dial, it is the same construction of tourbillon movement on genuine watch. The tourbillon device will start to work if you manually wind the watch.
I do not want to talk too much about the whole watch finish, it is just as good as other Audemars Piguet replica watches made by J12 factory. Please read the following specification to know the watch better.
Movement: Manual Winding Real Tourbillon
Case: 41mm*13mm, 316L Stainless Steel
Crystal: Sapphire with AR Coating
Dial: Blue Checkered Dial with Stick Makrers, Superlume on Markers and Hands
Bracelet: Solid 316L Stainless Steel with Deployant Clasp
Water Resistant: 50m
As the most outstanding and popular series of Audemars Piguet, Royal Oak has contributed so many excellent models to its fans. Royal Oak models always has very manly designs in its shape, color and functions, and there is no doubt for it to be so welcome among male purchase list. But, actually there are also many ladies love Royal Oak watches. In the replica market, replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch is also a hot item, there are so many models and this article I will like to review this full gold edition with you guys.
When I saw this full gold timepiece, it is so bright to me, and it looks so good on dark or bright skin. The size 41mm*9.8mm case is made of 316L stainless steel, with gold coating, and the surface is brass very well, I like the brass pattern very much, and it is even better on the gold. I can see there are screws on the bezel to fix the whole piece together, this has become the typical machinery beauty of Royal Oak watch. Looking into the dial, which is special blue check design, quiet special on a full gold case. The stick markers and three hands are all in gold, which is luminous. Functions are including hour, minute, second and date, adjusting from the crown. There is engraving “AP” on this hexagonal crown. On top the front glass is made of sapphire crystal, wearable and colorless material.
From the back sapphire crystal case, the movement machinery structure can be seem clearly. There is engraving “Royal Oak” and series No. on the back case. Inside there is a 1:1 replica 3120 movement from MIYOTA9015 movement, comparing to the previous replica edition which adopted 9015 movement without any replica work, this one is much closer to the genuine. We can see every replica detail through the clear back case. The bracelet is made of stainless steel and proceed with PVD gold as well. The Tang buckle is very elegant too, the “AP” logo looks as same as per original too. To conclude, this would be the best replica edition that I’ve seen, especially on the details and manufacture work. If you are looking for gold timepiece, this AP Royal Oak model will be nice to choose from.
Actually I do not want to introduce too many Audemars Piguet replica watches here because they are usually too expensive, although many readers have shown their interest in these 1:1 Audemars Piguet replicas, they finally turned to other watches due to a high cost of AP, which is usually sold over six hundreds of us dollars. I know you guys are not willing to pay such a high price on a replica watch, but whether you buy or not, they are worth the money. Especially this one, the Audemars Piguet Montauk Highway Limited Edition watch, I have posted a review about it at http://www.wristwatchspot.com/2015/07/23/photo-review-of-audemars-piguet-montauk-highway-replica-watch/, some blog readers who are interested in AP usually asked me about Montauk Highway, so today I will give a short review of this watch again, after these years, the Montauk Highway has been improved for several times, in the beginning, the watch is cloned by small factories, there are no 1:1 replica versions in the market, all of them are equipped with quartz movement, you can easily tell because the small second hand running at 6 ticking the time. Nowadays, all good quality replica Audemars Piguet watches are almost made by J12 factory, their movement is also changed from 7750 to clone 3126, like this one, the replica runs a smooth small second hand on subdial at 12, it has really been replicated the exactly same as genuine from appearance to inner side. I have told some of you guys that I will not sell cheap AP quartz watches any more, because all watches I want to provide here are best of the best.
I do not want to talk too much on its casing finishing and how well it is made, because, like AP Las Vegas Strip and Lebron James limied edition watch, Montauk Highway also has a superior craftmanship, these three watches are all made by J12 factory. The biggest feature that makes you instantly being recognized in the crowds is the dial color, white plus light blue, making the watch looks so fresh and clean. The light blue color on Tachymeter inner bezel, hour markers and hands is really attractive, if Audemars Piguet have ever made a basic model with such a dial color, which is not exclusive to Montauk Highway, I think it will be more popular. The replica is fitted with one pair of genuine alligator leather straps, which feature light blue hand stitching that just perfectly matches with the dial color. Finally, the replica Audemars Piguet Montauk Highway is equipped with a clone 3126 movement, which was just researched and developped by J12 in 2016, 3126 is currently the best AP chronograph movement, and this clone one is modified from a Shanghai 7750.
The watch has a nice dial lume at night, the lume is strong green that has the same tone as genuine watch. This is also the reason why I love Montauk Highway so much, other Audemars Piguet chrono watches do not have this feature. Now, do you want to wear such an amazing timepiece while riding a car like a blue ghost on the Montauk Highway?
I should say that watch designers always can get surprising designs from any inspiration. When we talk about American Dream, Las Vegas is a necessary place has to be mentioned, because it is considered as a place to make dreams come true. Inspired by this sleepless entertaining city, Audermars Piguet adopted the city essence and boldly turned it into a wrist watch. In fact, this AP 26186SN.OO.D101CR.01 watch is inspired by strip show and also name strip limited edition. Let’s have a look on this combination of timepiece and gambling.
The black case is made of stainless steel with DHL finishing, on the black dial, there are read markers and three sub-dials. I think black and red is a perfect color match, and black stands for the night and red represents those colorful events at Las Vegas’ nights. All the function on the dial you can see is working as good as the original, the reason I will explain later. The main dial presents the hour, minute and second chronograph, and the date is displayed at 3:00 position. The sub-dial operates its chronograph function except the small second subdial at 12. Then it is easy to tell the three buttons at the side are for adjusting those functions. The middle crown is for time and date adjustment, the button on top is for start/stop chronograph while the button below is for chronograph reset, they are all screw-in type. As I said this replica Audermars Piguet works as same as per original, because it is equipped with an upgraded clone movement, which is 3126, 1:1 replica of the original movement. And as this replica watch is from J12 factory, I don’t have any problem with its quality.
The bracelet is made of original crocodile, sewing with red color string, the color matching is so great. The clasp folded type, and it there is AP’s logo on it. On the strong back case is engraved with “LAS VEGAS STRIP” referring to it is a limited edition theme. If you like a watch which is a combination of stainless steel and leather, this is a not bad option.
The watch here I am going to discuss is the most expensive replica Audemars Piguet watch currently, some websites online are selling this replica at a sky high price, even much more expensive than AP Michael Schumacher.
The replica is manufactured by J12 factory, they put a lot of effort in replicating this model.
The theme of AP LeBron James replica is blue and grey color, 316L stainless steel case is plated with rose gold, the bezel is Cermet, which is made of ceramic and metallic material.
Cermet bezel is harder than general stainless steel. The case is a little different from other AP watches because its lugs are raised. The sunken case part is sand blasted, which gives a very refined touch feeling, the raised part is draw processed with polished edge. This type of case was only used on Audemars Piguet Schwarzenegger Limited Edition before, and the case design of AP LeBron James replica has more visual impact and layered feeling, which looks fresh.
Advanced rubber strap, there are air through holes on the band, very suitable to be worn in hot summer.
The watch will be shipped with one free pair of leather straps.
The case back also uses refined sand blasted workmanship, the screws look better.
Brand-new clone 3126 movement, with perfect polishing, it represents the highest imitation level.
The button is ceramic, it consists of spring, button and tube.
The chrono start button is embeded with 14 pieces of diamonds, to differentiate it from reset button.
The subdials have rose gold edge.
It is not a diver’s watch, the lume effect is just so so.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 26470ST.OO.A801CR.01 by JF, the dial is very beautiful, it is in cream color. Sub dials and Tachymeter bezel are in chocolate tone, so sometimes we call it “Audemars Piguet Chocolate”.
The crystal uses sapphire, it has anti-reflective coating on inner face. Like other AP watches, the crystal is clear and gives a super good visual effect.
100% same as genuine, crown and chronograph buttons use ceramic, their edges are chamfer processed.
The magnifier above date window also features anti-reflective coating, which is very close to genuine.
The dial is perfect, I think it has beyond the replication of 15703. All hour markers have correct position and proportion. However, if you observe the date window carefully, its position is a little wrong and goes too right off center. This is limited to the movement, it can not be done to be 100% the same as genuine.
This replica Safari has been upgraded, because the date window of previous version has a deep brown background, which is different from genuine’s black. Now, this replica finally solved this defect.
Dial details. Numeral hour markers are 3D and filled with chocolate luminescence. However, the lume effect is not very obvious. Chronograph subdials have drawing-processed circles with brushed face. Safari and 15703 have checkered dial, but the grids on Safari’s dial does not have fiber patterns. Second-chronograph hand is plated with glaze.
Band uses embossed leather with crocodile patterns, it is thick and hard. There is raised crocodile coccyx on each strap. White hand stitching brings impact visual effect, and is also full of retro atmosphere.
The inside of the bank is litchi pattern embossed cow leather, very soft and comfortable.
The design of AP is really perfect, bent lugs could fit your wrist in a very comfortable way.
Brown leather band is just matching the chocolate subdials and tachymeter bezel.
J12 made a great effort on polishing their Audemars Piguet replica watches, like this one. The bezel of Safari is thicker than that of 15703.
Conclusion: AP Safari Chocolate replica is a great watch with refined craftmanship, it should belong to the high-end replica in our market. This replica has a better finish than 15703 and closer to genuine. The AP Safari replica I am talking here is equipped with an Asian 7750 movement, not the latest Clone 3126 movement made by J12 factory. However, J12 has upgraded all Audemars Piguet replica watches with 3126 movement, and the price is not very high.
Having read a lot of watches reviews on my blog and still can not decide to buy which one? From today, I will spend several days to write some recommendation reviews to help you guys to choose the best one in these top lists, which include top 5 diver’s watches and top 5 dress watches I will introduce in the following two posts. Today, the top 5 hot sale diver’s watches come first, in this article, I will give a short introduction of each watch, you can choose the one that mostly fits your style.
Rolex Submariner 116610 LN V6s
Rolex is the best-selling watch in the world and Submariner is the most popular series. In Guangzhou watch market, Rolex is the brand which factories mostly love to replicate. 116610 LN Black Submariner has always been the object of each factory. Ultil now, there are basically 3 factories having manufactured Rolex 116610 LN, they are BP, Noob and J12, certainly the best edition is from Noob, which is going to release V7. So, V6s on the picture is currently the best one. From case polishing, dial detials and movement, Noob 116610 LN V6s do the best, you can choose ETA 2836 and Super 3135 to be installed.
AP Diver 15703
Audemars Piguet Diver 15703 has a large amount of sales in diver’s watches. Every one in the watch forum will recommend you 15703 when you are searching for a good diver’s watch. Its extremely thick case can resist shock and you do not need to worry it will be broken during shipping. Besides, the movement inside 15703 is Sea-gull 2824 that owns a low repairing rate. Currently 15703 is replicated by Noob, H and J12 factories, but I still recommend Noob version, whose stability and accuracy have been tested by our wearers.
Omega Planet Ocean
Besides our best seller Spectre, Planet Ocean is the hottest Omega diver’s model. BP, Noob and KW all make this watch, I will recommend BP version this time. BP Planet Ocean has a better movement stability. 42mm case diameter makes Planet Ocean more suitable than other diver’s watches. Black ceramic bezel will not fade if you did not scratch it. By the way, BP Planet Ocean uses clone 8500 calibre, its movement plates and auto rotor are decorated perfectly, from the see-through crystal back, the fake movement looks the same as genuine.
Tudor Black Bay
The Black Bay is the earliest Tudor replica released in our market. ZF made the best version and Tudor Black Bay indeed raised a storm in watch market in 2014 after it was released. Some people buy it because of its charming red bezel, some buy it because the Sea-gull 2824 is very stable and accurate. I have worn one Tudor Black Bay to the boutique and compare it with genuine, all details of ZF Tudor Black Bay looks the same as original, even the watch expert there can not tell it as a fake.
Blancpain Fifty Fathoms
Blancpain Fifty Fathoms replica has the highest price among this top 5 watches list. Made by Noob, Blancpain Fifty Fathoms features a sapphire crystal bezel, that’s the biggest difference between it and other brand watches. The bezel markers and hour markers as well as hands all use original Swiss Superlume material, so the watch will emit a strong green light in the dark.
Ok, the articles above give a sumarry of top 5 best-selling diver’s watches, which one is the best style you want to own?
The replica is made by J12 factory, like AP 15706, the BumbleBee watch also uses Forged Carbon case, ceramic bezel and case back, Titanium clasp and extreme workmanship, but it is more delicated than 15706. BumbleBee reflects the top watch-making technology in chronograph watches, from watch material to workmanship, J12 does better.
The crystal adopts sapphire with colorless AR Coating, it is very clear even under sun light, there will be a little reflection at a special angle. On the photo above, you almost can not see the existence of the crystal. Like AP Navy, the date magnifier has a layer of light green AR Coating to eliminate reflection, while genuine uses colorless AR Coating, but this tiny difference is hard to spot.
The strongest point of BumbleBee lies that its case back also adopts ceramic, cutting and drawing process all achieve to be perfect.
Forged carbon case has beautiful marble texture, the pattern on this J12 BumbleBee Forged Carbon case is also obvious, very pretty.
Embossed cow leather strap has yellow hand stitching on both sides, which is matching the yellow Tachymeter scales on inner bezel.
Ceramic bezel features sharp edges processed by chamfering polishing. On previous replicas made by J12, the bezel is stainless steel and their octagonal corners are not very sharp.
Chrono buttons and crown have rubber wrapped.
Buckle is Titanium made, DLC processed with delicated drawing process and engraving.
Deployant clasp is also Titanium, showing a Titanium color. The Titanium clasp is stronger and secure than stainless steel clasp, also looks more upscale.
Back cover has “Royal Oak Offshore” engravings, which are polished. The outer ring is drawing processed, which forms a sharp contrast with the brushed inner ring.
At this angle, the smooth surface of the case back fonts is like mirror.
The reflection disappears if changing another angle.
The inner ring has a black matte finished background, which is full of quality texture.
Audemars Piguet BumbleBee replica is really a good rugged sports watch, there are no defects besides its expensive price.
