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.
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.
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.
Happy Chinese New Year! In the beginning of 2018 year, a lot of factories published several new models, some are amazing. For example, my watch contact brought me a good news and said the Noob factory just updated Submariner 116610LV again. In my mind, this is the eighth time for Noob to update this Submariner watch, actually after the previous improvement, the Rolex Submariner 116610LV replica has been so perfect and the watch itself has gotten so many compliments. Now, Noob factory updated the watch again, besides continuously improved the movement realiability and stability, this time the factory used 904L stainless steel on the case and bracelet, it is the first time for the factory to use 904L steel on replica watches. Now, let’s see more details on this replica 116610LV.
Because it is the eighth time improvement Noob factory made on this watch, so we called this watch Submariner 116610LV V8. The case, bezel, case back and bracelet are all made of stainless steel 904L, which uses the same material as genuine watch. This is the greatest improvement I have found on all replica watches, because those watches made in our market all use 316L stainless steel. If you have some knowledge about Rolex, you will know the advantage of 904L steel. Absolutely the price is also higher. Besides the case material, the case size is also made to be exactly the same as genuine 116610LV, the case diameter is 40mm, thickness is 13mm. Green ceramic bezel insert, with dial, the green color is closer to genuine watch. Bezel engravings are platinum tone, just like original bezel.
Dial is green. Genuine Swiss Blue SuperLume is applied on three-dimensional hour markers and hands. All hour markers have silver edge around, those Rolex Rehaut on inner bezel are correctly engraved. Dial letterings and date have the correct font that are closer to genuine than all previous 116610LV replicas published before. The replica has a correct date mag of 2.5X. Inside the case back, there is a great clone movement, named Super Clone 3135, whose auto rotor and bridges are fully decorated to be exactly the same as genuine Rolex 3135 movement.
Here are some specifications of the replica 116610LV:
Movement: Super Clone 3135 Automatic, 28800BPH, Decorated Rotor and Bridges
Case: 904L Stainless Steel, 40mm*13mm
Bezel: Green Ceramic, Uni-Directional, Anti-Clockwise
Crystal: Sapphire, Tiny Crown in Crystal at 6
Dial: SuperLumed, Green
Bracelet: 904L Stainless Steel with Deployant Buckle
Water Resistant: 50m
Two tone is the element that mostly represents the luxury of a watch. As a professional diver’s watch, Rolex is willing to uses gold and other precious metal on its Submariner series. In 2017 Basel, Rolex published several new models, but I always think that those Submariner models they published before are the most classic ones, like 116610LN Black Submariner, 114060 No Date model, etc. Today, the 116613 is for Rolex fans who love two tone style. The replica Rolex Submariner 116613 is made by Noob factory, it is V7 version, absolutely the best one currently. Every detail is replicated to be closer to genuine Submariner watch. Especially the yellow gold coating on bezel and bracelet, it is 18K wrapped gold, not plated, so the gold coating will be more durable and not fade.
The case is measured to be 40mm in diameter, 13mm in thickness, which is the same as genuine. Case is brushed 316L stainless steel, while the bezel tooth and crown are 18K wrapped gold. Black ceramic bezel insert features engraved yellow gold markers, the bezel is anti-clockwise rotating. Real black ceramic is used to made the bezel insert, is is more scratch resistant than plastic. Black dial echoes with the black bezel, all hour markers feature yellow gold frame and are filled with white luminous material in the centre, plus hands, they will emit blue light in the dark. Like real Submariner, the innver bezel features correct ROLEX Rehaut. Just compared the dial lettering with real Submariner’s, there is no difference.
Two tone bracelet has yellow gold on middle links. The brushing effect on bracelet gives you a high quality texture feeling. I have one thing to tell you here, it is about the clasp, check carefully, new Submariners from Rolex all have silver clasp engravings, not black on previous Submariner watches. So, see photos below, the clasp engravings on this Rolex Submariner 116613 replica is correct in color. Congrats Noob factory finally makes the right Submariners replicas, and we are also very lucky to own such a high quality replica Rolex. By the way, the replica is equipped with a real Swiss ETA 2836 movement, not clone.
Now, everyone who bought Rolex Daytona Paul Newman watch from me before knows JK factory, it mainly produces replica watches of vintage Rolex and Panerai, but sometimes this factory also makes special watches like Pro Hunter, Bamford Submariners, etc. Take this Bamford Commando Rolex Submariner for example, genuine model is specially designed by Bamford company, it uses Submariner name, but has its own features. I like the style, it is military black, looks very tough, and the name “COMMANDO”, it exactly describes the tough style of the replica watch. The genuine watch claims 300m water resistance, while the replica has been tested by factory to be 30m waterproof.
The case is brushed stainless steel, measured to be 40mm in case diameter, absolutely not including the crown. The case thickness is 13mm, black ceramic bezel insert with a red triangle at 12 o’clock. The bezel is diving style and uni-directional. Black diving scales on bezel form a high contrast with the white hour markers. Brown dial has some iconic features belonged to Submariner, such as the bezel-style hour and minute hands. Arabic 3-6-9 hour markers and the reverse triangle mark are skeletonized, the disc on the bottom is applied white luminescence, so the four markers above will emit green light in dark place. Second hand features a round red dot.
The Rolex Bamford Commando Submariner replica is equipped with an Asian clone ETA 2836-2 movement, which has 25 jewels and 28800bph. If you guys want to buy a genuine ETA model, I can ask the factory to install a real ETA 2836-2 movement for you.
Movement: Asian ETA 2836-2 Automatic, Nickel Plated Movement Plates, 25 Jewels, 28800BPH
Case: 316L Stainless Steel, 40mm*13mm
Bezel: Black Ceramic Bezel Insert
Dial: Brown Sandwiched
Band: Steel with Deployant Clasp
Water Resistance: 30m
In past a few months, every one has focused their attention on the 2017 BaselWorld watch exibition, so was I. Every year a lot of Swiss brands would publish a lot of new models, which were made with new breakthrough watch-making technology, especially Rolex, they will bring some surprising gifts to you guys in Basel every year. This time, I will introduce a monster to you, it is the most professional diving watch series of Rolex, yes, it is Sea-Dweller, look at the red lettering on black dial, red “SEA-DWELLER”, very obvious. We all know Sea-Dweller is famous for their superior waterproof performance because it is specially made for professional divers. However, this new Sea-Dweller is also very good for you guys who may be not expert divers. 43mm in case diameter, not big and just like the size of Black Submariner, it will be under control of your wrist. And the new Sea-Dweller 126600 is very similar to Submariner because of its Cyclops. I can not find such a feature on previous Sea-Dweller models. So this watch will be a good choice for watch fans who like a Submariner-style Sea-Dweller professional diver’s watch.
It is already not a secret that our fake watch factories will go to Basel watch exibition, why did they go there? Not only they love watches, but they also wanted to buy some so could manufacture the latest replicas of these new watches. The main reason is that they want to do business and earn a lot of money. By the way, some factory managers really did well in this area. Such as BP, which made this replica Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600. According to my knowledge, BP is the first factory to publish this Sea-Dweller replica watch, and the watch quality is top, with a very considerable price, I think it is worth for you to get this replica watch.
Let us talk movement first, it is genuine ETA 2836. Beating at rate of 28800BPH. An Asian clone 2836 or 2813 is also available, and the replica with such clone movement is much cheaper. However, if I were you, I will choose a genuine ETA version, because it works more accurate and the watch will serve you longer time.
Two big difference lies in the new Sea-Dweller 126600 and previous models, one is the case diameter, the other is that this one has a cyclops at 3 o’clock. The bezel of the replica 126600 looks more robust and the clicking tooth is more obvious than Submariner. By the way, there is blue superlume applied on our markers and hands. Here are some more details of the replica in the following:
Movement: Genuine Swiss ETA 2836, Hacking Feature
Case: 316L Stainless Steel, 43mm*14mm, Uni-directional Ceramica Black Bezel
Dial: Superlumed Black Dial
Bracelet: Steel with Flip Lock Deployant Clasp
Water Resistant: 50M
In these days, I was really tired and have not much time to write something new about replica watches, actually at the beginning of 2017, those factories seem not to release striking new models, I guess they are waiting for genuine new watches that will be published in BaselWorld. However, some factories, such as BP, are still bringing new surprise to us, this time, BP factory released a series of vintage Rolex Submariner replicas, this one Comex 1680 is one of them. Actually I remembered such type of vintage Rolex replicas were manufactured by another unknown factory, a factory that made the famous vintage Paul Newman Daytona replica, this time, not only BP made Paul Newman Daytona, it also produced this Comex Submariner. Every one who knows BP must remember their Rolex Submariner replicas have a very close quality to Noob Submariner, so now BP brings these vintage Rolex replicas to a new quality level.
The biggest difference between this 1680 and other Submariners is that its dial has a COMEX printing, so it is a Rolex that has a rich story. The only background history about such Rolex Submariner is it has a tight association with Comex company. In order to develop a model that is more suitable for professional divers, Rolex cooperated with Comex, to ask their workers to wear Rolex Submariner watches when working under water, to distinguish this type of Submariners from other common Submariners, Rolex printed “COMEX” word on the dial. The development of Comex Submariner has made a great contribution to the birth of Rolex Sea-Dweller. This is all things I know about Comex Rolex watch.
Now comes to this BP replica Rolex Comex Submariner, black gilt dial has white printings, the white hour markers do not have silver edge, it is SWISS T<25 on the dial at 6. COMEX is black in square white background. The date font is in large size, the font style looks somewhat different from modern Submariner’s. I like the crown design, it does not have that large protecting lugs, so it is very easy to rotate the crown to adjust time and date.
Finally, the replica vintage Rolex is equipped with ETA 2836-2 movement, which is considered to be the most reliable movement used in replicas. Actually with the rapid development of replica watch industry, the clone movement is made very close to genuine, but I still recommend you guys to buy this ETA 2836 movement, because it has fewer modification on movement components, the working is more stable. The riveted bracelet now is available, many vintage Rolex fans has requested riveted bracelet from me, now it is in stock.
It is nearly the end of year 2016, now it is time for me to sum up the best-selling ten replica watches in 2016. Every one has a different top 10 in their mind, yes, this top 10 list is the best-selling ten watches on my blog at wristwatchspot.com. Here the list includes popular Rolex and Panerai, as well as vintage Daytona Paul Newman. The common feature of these replicas is that they are all made by famous watch factories in our market, there are five Rolex models in this top 10 list because Rolex is the hottest brand both in genuine and replica watch world. Here I will explain why these ten watches are sold so well, I will briefly tell you the biggest selling point of each replica in the following article.
1. Omega Seamaster 007 Spectre
007 Spectre is our best seller, I gave a detailed review at http://www.wristwatchspot.com/2016/01/20/replica-omega-seamaster-300-spectre-james-bond-007-vintage-watch-from-kw-factory/. There were more than 20 blog readers who saw this review asked me how to buy this replica, this blog post is also my mostly read article, many watch fans shown a great interest in this replica watch, I also have contacted with each of you guys who left comments, and I sold about 10 pieces of it each month. Omega 007 Spectre was made by KW factory, also known as V6, it is a big factory specilizes in manufacturing 1:1 Omega and PAM replicas, this Omega Spectre replica actually had a very low repairing rate, few customers who bought this replica returned it to me because of quality problem. The biggest selling point that makes Spectre the No. 1 in this top 10 list lies in its accurate Miyota 8215 movemen, and there will be an extra stainless steel bracelet shipped along with the watch for free.
2. Rolex Submariner 116610LN
Black Sub 116610LN Date occupies the second position. At the beginning of 2016, Noob factory published V6S of 116610LN, now the latest version is V7, which was just upgraded with all details ,closest to genuine. The watch is very heavy because it has a similar weight to genuine. Bezel engraving and dial lume are exactly the same. The biggest improvement of V7 is the clasp, it is correct polishing rather than sand finish. This replica also has a version with super clone 3135 movement, but I think 2836 is enough because it is accurate and stable.
3. Rolex Daytona Paul Newman Vintage
At the beginning of writing this blog, vintage watch is the main theme, I had always been searching for the best vintage Rolex and Panerai replicas to share reviews of them with you guys. The following Daytona Paul Newman 6241 is the best-selling one among all vintage watches reviewed on my blog. The main dial is in cream white color, the movement inside is manual winding, do not wind it too tight each time.
4. PAM 438 Ceramica
The fourth one is Panerai PAM 438. There are V6, Z and S factories manufacturing PAM 438 replica, absolutely the best one is made by V6 factory, its version also comes to V4. This replica uses a full metallic black ceramic material, other cheap replica PAM 438 uses black DLC not genuine ceramic. The movement is a clone P.9001 that is modified from Shanghai 7750. The front and back crystal all use anti-scratch sapphire with colorless anti-reflective coating. The GMT function is working, just the same as genuine PAM 438.
5. Rolex Daytona SS
There are Noob, BP and J12 factories manufacturing this replica Daytona, but the best one I think is made by Noob factory, that is the one in the following. The dial is black with red hands, the replica runs a small second hand on the subdial at 6, chronograph is fully working, big red hand on the centre is very obvious. From Noob, I recommend the Daytona to you, but the same watch from J12 is also very good, even I think J12 does a better polishing on case and bracelet.
6. Hublot Big Bang
Hublot is selling well all over the world and their replicas are also the hottest models. The following Hubot Big Bang replica uses the best movement, which is a clone HUB4100, the auto rotor and movement plates are modified to the outlook of genuine HUB4100. Black ceramic used on the bezel is the second selling point of this replica. There are woven patterns on black dial, small second hand is applied white luminescence and runs on subdial at 9. All hour markers are in 3D silver tone. The black rubber strap is soft but durable, it does not have a bad smell. A lot of people asked me the price of this Hublot but they finally turned to other replicas because the price for HUB4100 replica is a little expensive, because it is more cost-efficient to spend $438 usd on a super replica Rolex rather than a HUBLOT.
7. DEEPSEA D-Blue
Like Black Sub 116610LN, this DEEPSEA D-Blue 116660 is made by Noob factory and now its version comes to V7, replicas always need to be improved because our customers have always been looking for the perfect ones. So, maybe there will be V8, V9 or even V10 of 116660 in 2017. However, the following one is really great, the gradual blue-to-black dial symbolizes the eternal pursuit of Rolex to deep sea. The crown is screw-in and could be tightly locked, Titanium case back also has the same locking system as genuine, so this replica has a good water resistance, which is nearly 100 meters that have been tested in factory. For people who pursue perfection, there is also a genuine ETA 2836 movement option for this replica. I sold two pieces of DEEPSEA D-Blue watch in this month, they were bought by one my Lithuanian client.
8. IWC Big Pilot IW500908
The eighth watch is famous IWC Big Pilot Le Petit Prince. It has several models because of different dial color, but the most attractive one is this blue dial version. 7-day power reserve is real because it uses a Sea-Gull automatic movement with real power reserve feature. Blue dial is very charming. The big crown is very easy for you to operate. The case diameter is up to 46mm, so the big dial looks very comfortable, it is not like other watches with a complicated dial that features all details in a compact way, the dial of Big Pilot Le Petit Prince is big, large hour markers and slender hands are very convenient for you to read the time.
9. Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711
Patek Philippe Nautilus is also the watch which factory has always been focusing on improvement. Now it is the V4 version of this Nautilus 5711. The replica uses 316L stainless steel that is directly imported from Germany. The case diameter is 40mm, not very big and just a good size for all men’s wrist. The movement is Clone Cal. 324, which is modified on basis of Miyota 9015, that’s the best selling point of this replica. Because I think this Japanese movement is more accurate and stable than other clone movements.
10. Rolex YachtMaster II 116680
The most beautiful YachtMaster II in my opinion, a lot of clients bought it only because of its fresh blue color on bezel and dial. Nowadays, the design of new YachtMaster II has taken too much consideration of material and movement technology, so I think Rolex forgot to keep the original outlook design of YachtMaster II. In my memory, the blue color is the only thing that makes me remember this watch is a YachtMaster II. Because of movement difference, the red triangle hand on the centre is not working, however, the replica watch features a fully working chronograph.
Compared with other Submariners, I like 116610 LN more, because I think it is the most authentic Submariner Rolex has made, and indeed it has a high popularity among Rolex fans. Many people prefer steel black Submariner 116610 LN rather than these two tone and gold styles, but sometimes a luxury two tone Submariner is good for a certain group of people, they like the golden tone on the watch, so here I will introduce a good replica Rolex Submariner two tone watch, it is a perfect replica of Submariner 16613, the watch is made by BP, which is one of the factories that made the first batch of good quality replica Rolex.
BP made this replica Submariner according to genuine watch 16610. Every Rolex replica made in the market is made by three major factories, they are BP, Noob and J12, these are good quality replicas. While the quality of these Rolex replicas made by other small factories can not be ensured. The 16613 replica here features a two tone appearance, it is made of 316L stainless steel, while its bezel, crown and the central links of bracelet are plated with yellow gold. The Submariner watch looks more luxury than others because of the yellow gold tone applied. Black bezel insert has golden markers engraved, the edge of the bezel is also plated with yellow gold. The whole case is brushed and solid case back has nothing. Streamlined case design looks great from the case side.
Black dial is perfectly cloned, the dial design is also a great advantage of BP because it could make a Submariner dial that is closest to genuine. The Rolex Crown Logo positioned at 12 under the triangle marker is three-dimensional, all hour markers and hands have yellow golden edge, which echoes with the yellow golden bezel markers. White luminous material applied on markers and hands will offer green light in the dark.
By the way, the watch is equipped with a Super Asian 3135 movement, it is modified from a Miyota 9015 automatic movement, and it is better than the clone 3135 movement that is modified with a Chinese automatic, as we all know, automatic movement coming from Japan is always more stable and accurate.
Whether in genuine or replica watch field, 114060 has a high popularity like black Submariner 116610 LN. The only difference is that 114060 does not have date function, while this will not stop it become a hot watch, because someone likes the cyclob and some people don’t. The replica Rolex Submariner 114060 here is made by J12 factory, not only it has a superior case finish, but it is also equipped with a super clone 3130 movement.
The case is well brushed, it has a great hand touch and case profile is the same as genuine, because the usage of high quality watch material, the whole replica Rolex has a similar weight to original watch. Case and bracelet are made of solid 316L stainless steel, you will feel its weight on hand. The bezel uses real black ceramic, deeply engraved bezel has a silver cream pearl, which is domed not flat.
Like Super 3135, the clone 3130 is also a great movement which J12 factory researched and developed. This movement now is only used by Rolex Submariner No Date replica, which is a dream watch for people who do not like a magnifier on the crystal. The movement only offers hours, minutes and seconds for the replica. The factory has modified the rotor and movement plates, so it will be closer to genuine 3130 calibre, besides, the clone 3130 also features a big red wheel.
Although sold at a high price, but Rolex 114060 will not be a regret choice, it has 100% same quality as Noob Submariner 116610 LN.
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.
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.
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.
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.
