JK Factory Replica Vintage Rolex Submariner 6538 with Red Dot Bezel and Big Crown

Replica Rolex Submariner 6538 Vintage

I love vintage watches very much. Especially Rolex and Panerai are my most favorite. Actually there are a lot of vintage Rolex in genuine watch market, but most of them have been out of stock now. So, people who love vintage Rolex turn to seek for perfect replicas of them. However, it is hard for them to get a perfect replica of vintage Rolex, sometimes it is even difficult to get one because these vintage Rolex watches are also very rare in replica watch market. Vintage watches usually appeared in Rolex series like Submariner, GMT Master II, Daytona and Milgauss. I have introduced these replicas here on my blog, for example, Daytona Paul Newman, Double Red Sea-Dweller, Comex Submariner, etc. Today, I am going to introduce another vintage Rolex Submariner replica, which was ordered by one of my clients. The watch is unique and greatly different from modern Submariner.

Vintage Rolex Submariner 6538 Red Dot Bezel

First, these photos are 100% real photos I took with my mobile phone. This is a replica and made b JK factory that has produced a lot of vintage replica Rolex watches. The case is made of 440 stainless steel and 40mm in case diameter, the case size is almost the same as other modern Rolex Submariner, but this vintage model features a big crown on the right, which is 8mm. Under the crown logo, there is a word of “Brevette”. On the bezel, besides diver’s markings, the most unique place lies in its red triangle mark at 12 o’clock. On this vintage replica Rolex Submariner 6538, the bezel markers are not engraved.

Black dial has yellowish hour markers, there are Arabic numeral hour markers of 3, 6 and 9. A big triangle mark is at 12 o’clock. The dial has a simple layout design and no date. By the way, the dial is protected by a domed plastic crystal.

Big Crown on Vintage Submariner 6538

The replica is equipped with a black nato strap that features a SS pin buckle. Nato band is a perfect match for this vintage Rolex but this replica watch will be more perfect if the band is fitted a Rolex Crown buckle.

Spark in The Dark – Replica Rolex Stealth Submariner Black Nato Watch

Rolex Stealth Submariner Replica

I have never seen this type of Rolex ultil I found it in our replica watch market, its full name should be Project X Stealth. Genuine watch is a custom-made Rolex by a company which I have no idea about. But we have to admit that these Rolex watches made by them are really cool, most of them in full black appearance with nato band. The biggest difference between Stealth Rolex and normal Rolex watches lies in their case and dial design, from the replica watch review in the following article, we will find more things interesting.

Rolex Submariner Black PVD Case

The case is measured to be 40mm, which is a normal size for Rolex Submariner. But among all Submariner models Rolex has published, I never saw a full black case on Sub, while this replica Rolex Stealth Submariner features an all black pvd case with bezel. I do not way this company painted the case to be black, maybe this more meets the meaning of STEAlTH. There are diving markers on bezel but no pearl set at 12 o’clock. On solid case back, there are engravings of “STEALTH MK IV” on case rim, and featuring an engraved pattern of SBS’ Frog on the centre.

Rolex Submariner Maxi Dial

The dial is also in black, you will see larger hour markers and fatter hands on this dial, yes, we call it Maxi Dial, which is only used on some Rolex models. So it is very rare. The hour markers have black luminous material applied, so do the hands. All printings on dial are in white color, except the “STEALTH”, which is black in white square background. The date window is set at 3 o’clock, black date font is in white background, it is curious that this Submariner replica watch does not have a date cyclob.

The replica watch is equipped with an Asian ETA 2836 movement, which is used on most replica Rolex and gets a better stability than other automatic movement. Some people here always ask me to change a genuine ETA movement for their orders, but I have to say that only certain replica watches made by big factories could be installed with genuine ETA movement. By the way, for all chronograph watches, they can’t be equipped with genuine ETA 7750 movement in replica watch field.

Stealth MK IV

Finally, let us see the nato strap, it is a single strap in full black, which is exactly matching the black pvd case of the replica. There are three black steel keepers on the strap. It is very easy for the wearer to remove the band and replace a new one in any color, but you must ensure the new installed band meets the black theme of this replica Stealth Rolex.
