About one month ago, Noob published their V10 edition of replica Rolex Submariner 116610LN and 116610LV, many clents of mine ordered the V10 Submariner 116610LN once it was introduced to the public, and the watch indeed has a very high quality and I have already received lots of good feedback. In Rolex area, Noob and AR are the two main leaders, other factories are not worth mentioning, the two watch manufacturers are also competing with each other, this directly promotes the development of watchmaking technology in fake watch industry, just several days ago, AR factory published their V3 edition of replica Submariner 116610LN and 116610LV. Please check their photos and videos below.
When facing so good quality Submariner replica watches from AR and Noob, some potential buyers are confused and do not know which one to choose, AR Sub or Noob Sub? Once there was a time, I always thought that the Submariner made by Noob is the best, when AR factory published their first replica of Submariner, I started to realize that this is wrong, after being compared, their quality is very close.
About Submariner, the biggest difference between Noob and AR, I think it is Noob offers a 3135 movement option. If you want a replica 116610LN or 116610LV with a 3135 movement, then buy Noob V10. AR only offers a A2824 movement for their V3 Submariner.
However, the V3 Submariner from AR factory has some advantages which Noob V10 can not be compared with, the most important feature is the feeling when you first get it on hand, this is very important, because AR factory uses imported 904L stainless steel material and does a high quality process on the case and bracelet on their V3 Submariner, so it will give you a more authentic feeling when you get a V3 AR Submairner in hand for the first time.
I don’t have to say again how good the finish of case and bracelet on AR Submariner, even Noob has does a good job, but they still can not keep up. Besides, AR also makes the first Submariner in the market that uses the same bezel construction as that of genuine Rolex Submariner. On this V3 Submariner, I think AR made two big improvements.
First, the Rolex Crown on the buckle is carved to be the same size as that of genuine Submariner, it looks more three-dimensional now. Besides, the spacing between it and the notch is correct, very easy to open. It is said that the clicking sound when you open the Rolex Crown is also made to be the same as genuine, this is incredible.
Second, the cyclops is updated to be very clear and with light blue reflection, you can see the “black hole” effect when there is reflection.
Actually there are many other subtle details that have been improved on this V3 Submariner, on the bezel, dial, clasp and every thing. If you have decided to buy a Submariner, please consider the following two from AR factory. By the way, Noob’s after-sale service is very bad, once you return your broken watch to Noob factory, you need to wait for nearly two months for them to fix it. So, after considering watch quality and after-sale service, I recommend V3 Submariner from AR factory.
The biggest news at the beginning of October is that Noob has published their V10 Submariner, including 116610LN and 116610LV, two models are the most popular Submariner in our market. Upon V9, Noob updated a lot on this new V10 edition. I did not realize that Noob will publish the V10 edition so fast, I thought they will publish it in next years. Maybe they have already felt strong competitiveness from AR factory, if still can not bring us some big surprises, they will be completely defeated.
Back to the V10 Submariner 116610LN and 116610LV. The biggest change is made on the bezel, which Noob factory claims that is could be interchanged with the bezel of genuine Submariner. The engraved depth of the bezel markers are the same as that of genuine Submariner, besides, the Platinum tone of the bezel markers will not fade as time goes by.
About the movement, Noob offers two options, one is an Asia ETA 2836, the other is a Super Clone 3135. The latter one has the same time and date adjustment as genuine Rolex 3135 Calibre. Both have a high quality.
Please read the following specification to know both watches better, and check a lot of photos below.
Movement: Super Asia 3135/Asia ETA 2836 Automatic
Case: 40mm*13mm, Solid 904L Stainless Steel
Bezel: Uni-directional Rotating Black Ceramic, Anti-clockwise
Crystal: Sapphire with Etched Crown Logo at 6 o’clock
Dial: Black with Superlume on Hour Markers and Hands
Bracelet: Solid 904L Stainless Steel with Deployant Clasp
Water Resistant: 30m
This watch is the V2 version of two tone Submariner 116613LN replica from AR factory, it is also the best version currently. Some people will ask, what about if being compared with the one from Noob? Actually I do not know, I have not held two watches in hand and compared them. Maybe in subtle details, Noob makes better, but the replica from AR factory also has their advantages. For example, it is the factory that used 904L stainless steel material on their replica Rolex watches, second, the finish on case and bracelet is much better. Third, AR factory installed an Asia ETA 2824 movement in this replica, compared with the Asia 3135 movement in Noob version, Asia 2824 is more stable and reliable. Fourth, the price is cheaper.
About this two tone Submariner 116613LN, there are basically four factories that are making it. BP, GM, AR and Noob. Among four of them, BP is the factory makes the cheapest one. GM is a new factory, I do not know their quality. So, the last two factories AR and Noob are worth your consideration. Based on the V1 edition, this time AR factory update the bezel and dial, the thickness of yellow gold coating on case and bracelet is also improved. First, the 18K yellow gold coating, which the factory claims, is updated to be 8 mils thick. Second, the black ceramic bezel insert is also updated, the golden markers on the bezel are improved to have the same engraving depth. Thrid, about dial improvement, the golden edge of hour markers is narrowed, while the central lume part is wider, so there will be more lume coating on each hour marker to guarantee stronger and longer lume light in dark conditions.
So, instead of spending $50 USD more on the 116613LN from Noob, it is better to choose this one from AR factory.
116613 is one of the best-selling Submariner watches, its popularity is next to the black Submariner 116610LN. 116613 is popular because it is a two tone model, and the watch features a blue bezel and blue dial. Today, the replica Rolex Submariner is made by AR factory, its case and bracelet are made of 904L stainless steel, now on this model, only AR factory uses 904L stainless steel, even Noob has not used. The replica watch was just published by AR factory in last week. Now, let’s take a close look at its photos.
The watch has a 40mm case diameter, it is 13mm thick, which is the same as genuine. The case is not only made of 904L stainless steel, but the golden part uses 18K yellow gold, whose layer is measured to be 5 mils, it is so thick, you do not need to worry about the fading of golden layer. The bezel uses real ceramic material in blue color. The golden markers on bezel exactly echoes with the golden case and bracelet. Now, AR factory uses special process to fix the bezel, so it will not fall off easily.
Blue dial is the ocean theme representation of the blue Submariner watch. There are golden dial printings and golden edge on hands and hour markers. Swiss lume material is fully filled in round dotted hour markers and hands. The blue lume color of the dial is very close to that of genuine watch. The silver rehaut has correct engravings, at 6 o’clock, there is serial number engraving on the rehaut like genuine.
Behind the solid case back, there is a high quality movement inside, it is a super clone 3135. The movement has all necessary engravings on the plate, which looks the same as genuine Rolex 3135. This movement has its own advantages and disadvantages, whatever, if you have ever owned a genuine Submariner watch, you will know its perfect winding feeling, which this fake Submariner will also give to you.

Now, a lot of factories are making replica Rolex watches, for example, Noob, ARF, GMF, DJ, BP, etc. Their products are absolutely in different quality. So, sometimes it is very confused for us to make a decision, because some beginners do not know which factory to choose from. Here I will write a basic guide on the top five best-selling Rolex replica watches in our market. These Rolexs are also the best quality ones. Hope this guide can help you.
Noob V9 Rolex Submariner 116610LN
Submariner 116610LN is the hottest Rolex watch. Among so many replicas from various factories, the best one I think is from Noob. Now the latest version is V9, and Noob is still making efforts to upgrade it. V9 116610LN could be equipped with a Super Asia 3135 or an Asia ETA 2836. Compared with Asia 3135, the Asia 2836 is more stable. So, here I recommend you to buy Submariner 116610LN V9 with Asia ETA 2836. The watch is fully made of 904L stainless steel.
2. Noob V9 Rolex Submariner 116610LV
Like 116610LN, the latest version of 116610LV made by Noob is also V9. The watch is made of 904L stainless steel, case thickness is 13mm, which is the same as genuine. Green ceramic bezel is updated, bezel markers are filled with platinum. The watch also has Super Asia 3135 and Asia ETA 2836 movement options. I recommend the one with Asia ETA 2836.
3. Noob V9 GMT-Master II 116710BLNR
Maybe I should put GMT-Master II 116710BLNR on the first position, because it sells very well, even better than the black Submariner. About this V9 GMT-Master II 116710BLNR from Noob, it does not have an Asia ETA movement option. The movement inside this watch is an Asia 3186, fortunately, the watch has a correct hand stack due to this super 3186 movement. The color transition on the ceramic bezel is so natural. V9 116710BLNR is made of 904L stainless steel.
4. Noob V2 Daytona 116500
V2 is the latest version, Noob just published it in the beginning of March, 2019. If you need it, please pre-order. 116500 has black and white choices in dial. Noob V2 Daytona 116500 is made of 904L stainless steel on case and bracelet, the most important is the watch is equipped with a Super Clone 4130, which is the first cloned 4130 in our market, the movement can achieve a full chronograph function. If you are interested in this watch and need more details of it, please contact me.
5. Vintage Rolex Daytona Paul Newman
Many people think that this watch should not be in this top five list. However, the vintage Daytona Paul Newman is indeed the best seller on my blog. I introduced this watch several years ago, and many clients have ordered it from me within these years. The Paul Newman Daytona has a lot of options in dial color, it also has white stainless steel and yellow golden choices. The watch is equipped with a Venus 75 movement, which is manual winding and can achieve a full chronograph function. The following are some actual photos I took for several Daytona Paul Newman watches. They are all available.
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.
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
