A lot of people ask me which replica is closest to authentic, I always said there are no perfect replicas in the past, there are many good quality replica watches in our market, made by different famous factories like Clean, VS, ZF, etc., they are very good, super clones, but I can not say they are perfect, if you have to let me pick up a perfect replica, I will choose this Submariner 116610LN made by Clean. Compared to AP 15400, Patek 5711, Daytona Panda and whatever other watches, Clean Submariner 116610LN is the one closest to authentic, closest to perfect. Yes, you may be tired to see Submariner, everyone on the internet has been promoting this watch since the period of Noob factory. Submariner 116610LN is also the replica watch made by the most factories, it is also the replica watch that has been mostly improved, it has been improved by Noob for almost twelve times, now this factory has been closed for several years, but I think Clean made this Submariner 116610LN upon the improvements of Noob version, this sounds normal, many manufacturers share the same watch parts factories. Clean factory has also improved the Submariner several times, the ceramic bezel made by them is the best, bezel markers also solved the difficulty of becoming dark, the movement is a super clone 3135, Dandong 3135, which is considered to be the best 3135 used in Submariner replica watch. No other replica watches are like Submariner 116610LN that has passed so many improvements, today, I do not see any complains on this replica and these factories also stop improving it, so do they also think this replica is very close to genuine now? I think so.
The new Oyster Perpetual with bubble dial is in hot discussion in various forums, a lot of people are interested in this replica, there are three sizes for this watch, 31mm, 36mm and 41mm, some watch factories are making the replicas, the earlest one is OW factory, I did not get the bubble Oyster Perpetual from OW before, but I saw many negative reviews about this factory on the internet. The second factory that makes the replica bubble Oyster Perpetual is KR factory, it is better than OWF version but a lot of people said the lug shape on KRF is wrong. The third factory to make this replica watch is EW, actually I seldom recommend watches made by EW, but my supplier said EW has good watches with good prices, they usually do not sell their watches at high prices, and there are a lot of positive reviews about EWF products on the forums, especially the 36mm Oyster Perpetual Tiffany Dial, it is said to the best version in our market, then how about the new Oyster Perpetual Bubble Dial from EW factory? I think it is currently the best one.
The 36mm and 41mm are both equipped with clone 3230 movement, which has a long power reserve up to 72 hours, some clients bought their OPs and tested the power reserve, it is correct. For the 36mm Oyster Perpetual made in the market, the first factory I recommend is EW, not only because of its better movement, but also the price is very reasonable. I do not know the 41mm, on 36mm Oyster Perpetual bubble, EW factory makes correct case and lug shape, OW factory completely makes the case shape wrong, about KRF, the lug shape is also not correct, but the three factories all make the dial color wrong, even EW’s dial color is closer to genuine. I will open a post in future to do a pictures comparison between EWF and KRF. Well, the pictures I share here are 36mm and 41mm Oyster Perpetual made by EWF, how about the 31mm, do you know what movement used in the 31mm OP?
Sometimes I was hesitating to tell whether the replica they are asking is a super clone or not, because they usually won’t buy it after being told it is not a super clone, the replica watch is not a super clone, not mean it is not in good quality, so they just missed a good replica watch. Not all replica watches in our market are super clones, even from these famous factories such as Clean, KV, GM and VS. For example, the GMT-Master II Batgirl and Pepsi from Clean can not be called super clones if they are not equipped with the latest Dandong 3285 movement, some Seamaster watches published by VS can also not be called super clones if not with the in-house super clone movements, but these are good replicas, the ones that closest to the super clone levels. Well, I will still stick to the principle of telling you the replica if it is the highest quality one in our market, you make the decision by yourself. Today, I will share two middle quality replica watches I like, one is the latest Blancpain replica, the other is a vintage Rolex Explorer.
About the vintage Rolex Explorer, actually I introduced a similar one on my blog before, please check this post, https://www.wristwatchspot.com/2021/12/20/a-vintage-rolex-explorer/. Both are made by BP factory, the same case size and same movement inside, the only difference lies in the color of the markers on the dial, this one has a yellow hour markers. About vintage Rolex watches, many people are interested in, but there are not too many good replicas of vintage Rolex in our market, I think only BP and JK two factories make good quality ones, BP has the most complete collection including Submariner, Explorer and GMT-Master, JK has Daytona Paul Newman. Vintage Rolex replicas are not super clones, but they have more fun to play.
The second watch is a new replica, it is Blancpain Ait Command, made by IT factory, I never heard of this factory before, perhaps it is just a small store in the market street. By the way, this replica does not have the same good case finish as the other watches I introduced on my blog. I did not see any dealers introduced this replica on their website or wechat moment, I also asked the supplier in the factory, he told me this is not a super clone, even not a middle quality one. Let us see if ZF will make it in this year, this Blancpain watch really looks nice. The replica is driven by a Dandong 7750 movement, it has a working chronograph function, the stopped central second hand will move if you push the button at 2 o’clock. By the way, the watch has a very thick case because IT adds several plates on base of the original Dandong movement.
Two new models from VS factory
Recent news in our watch market are all about Richard Mille and VS factory. First, several new Richard Mille replica watches made by RM and BBR factory have been released in the market, T+ and Sonic two teams also published the modified RM35-02 and RM35-01, so when people asked me about the best replicas of Richard Mille, I do not know which factory should be recommended, ZF, T+ or Sonic? They all make top quality replicas of RM35-01 and RM35-02, their quality is very close to each other, so it is hard to pick one. About VS factory, they have published a lot of new Rolex models in recent weeks, most of them are 36mm Datejust, and just about 5 days ago, VS published two new watches that really attract me, one is Oyster Perpetual 36mm Rolex Tiffany Blue, the other is a Seamaster 007 James Bond watch.
I really love these two watches from VS, and I high recommend them. First, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual with tiffany blue dial made by VS factory, it is a good replica watch with 36mm in case diameter, the case is made with 904L stainless steel and uses VS most famous 3235 movement, with their Dandong 3235 movement, I think VS factory can continue to expand their product line of replica Rolex watches. The tiffany blue dial color was highly welcomed in past three years, both Rolex Oyster Perpetual and Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 offer this dial color version, a lot of people love them.
The second new model is an Omega Seamaster replica watch, genuine watch is a Seamaster Diver 300m 60th Anniversary Edition, some people call it Seamaster 007 No Time to Die Blue, yes, its design is very similar to the last titanium Seamaster NTTD 007 watch Omega released. In last five years, there are two 007 Seamaster James Bond watches that were very popular in replica watch field, they are Seamaster Spectre and Seamaster No Time to Die, both are made by VS factory. Just 5 days ago, VS factory announced the release of this blue Seamaster 007 NTTD replica watch, I think it will become another best-selling 007 replica watch from VS.
The new Seamaster Diver 300m replica is made with 316L stainless steel, not titanium, it has a 42mm case diameter and measured to be 15mm in thickness. The bezel is blue ceramic, the dial is blue with water waves that are delicately finished. In the dark, the dial shows two lume colors, blue on hour markers and hour hand, while green on the minute hand, the 60 marker on the bezel also has a green lume light. The replica is equipped with a clone 8806 movement, which features beautiful decoration and correct engravings on the plate and auto rotor. The see-through crystal back features a Signature James Bond insignia, you can also see the movement inside, which is very similar to real Omega 8806 Calibre. The watch is equipped with a mesh stainless steel bracelet, currently no nylon band is offered to this watch by VS factory.
I really trust the quality of replica Omega Seamaster watches from VS factory, they make the best ones, I recommend. Well, the replicas of Seamaster from OR factory also have fine quality, but currently OR can not win in the competition with VS.
Clean V2 GMT-Master II Pepsi available
Rolex GMT-Master II with blue/red bezel and jubilee bracelet, this replica watch was published by Clean about two years ago, in June of 2021, at that time, this Rolex GMT-Master II was equipped with a clone 3186 movement, although many sellers have told you it uses a 3285, but this is not true, the plate of the movement is engraved with “3186”, two years ago, Clean did not have the 3285 movement, so this was a big flaw on the replica GMT-Master II Pepsi with Jubilee bracelet at that time. Just weeks ago, Clean developed the Dandong 3285 movement, now they started to install this movement in their GMT-Master II replicas, so the big flaw was finally corrected. Check the pictures below, on the movement plate, it says “3285”. The V2 GMT-Master II Pepsi now is stock, Clean changed the movement to 3285, but the price also increases, all GMT-Master II with the new 3285 movement from Clean have high prices than before. I must say that the replica watches from Clean have too expensive prices, especially their Daytona and GMT-Master II, which are much more expensive than the ones made by Noob before.
In recent weeks, things are all about Dandong movements, which are Dandong 4130, Dandong 3235 and Dandong 3285, about Dandong factory, I do not know too much about it, I only know it is one of the oldest watch factories in China, now having been in this business for a few years, I know that Dandong movements have been used in many super clone watches like Clean Daytona, VSF Datejust and Clean GMT-Master II, then how about the movement? Dandong 4130 in Clean Daytona and Dandong 3235 in VSF Datejust have been tested to be very stable and accurate, they are two of the movements that have the fewest issues in this industry, Dandong 4130 movement now being used by several watch factories like Clean, BT and New N, while Dandong 3235 is only authorized to be used by VS factory, you can only find the best 3235 movement in VS’s watches. About this Dandong 3285, the bad news is that now ordering any replica Rolex GMT-Master II watch with this movement from Clean factory needs to wait for a long time, about one month, hope they can solve this issue soon, because a lot of fans want to order. By the way, it is said that the Dandong 3285 movement in the new V2 GMT-Master II has a 3-day power reserve.
A Rolex Day-Date from GS Factory
Several months ago, GM announced their V2 edition of Rolex Day-Date 40mm, which is heavier than the V1 and closer to genuine in weight, just about one month ago, GS factory also published this type of Rolex Day-Date with similar weight to genuine, it is the first time for GS factory to make 40mm Rolex Day-Date, they only made ladies Datejust before, I do not know why they started to make the Day-Date, perhaps they saw the big profit which GM factory has earned from the better V2 Rolex Day-Date, now both factories form a direct competition, maybe you will ask me which one is better, I will tell you both have a similar quality, but I still suggest you buy from GM factory, because it is one of the earliest watch manufacturers to make the best replica Day-Date.
There are two movement options for the Day-Date, one is 2836, the other is 3255, it is said that the weight of the replica with 2836 movement is about 10 grams heavier than the one with 3255 movement. The other details such as case material, bracelet material and finish are the same.
This Rolex Day-Date in the pictures is made by GS factory, its dial looks cracked, actually it is not, the dial is actually made with special stone, I do not know how to call it, the hour markers are set with diamonds, there are correct engravings on inner bezel, which is also engraved with serial number at 6 o’clock. So, if you are going to buy a box with this Rolex, you need to tell your dealer to type the correct model number and serial number on the Rolex card, or it will be meaningless to pay extra to get an original box.
Both GM and GS provide a lot of Rolex Day-Date replica watches made with 904L stainless steel, some are plated with yellow gold, some are with rose gold, the dial colors also vary, almost all genuine Day-Date models on Rolex’s official website can be found with replicas in the GM or GS’s collection. I know you concern if the replica has two important features, one is the laser crown logo in the crystal at 6 o’clock, the other is the precious metal logo and symbols on the the lugs, both genuine features can be found on the replica, by the way, if you choose the replica with a 3255 movement, then the adjusting of time, day and date will be the same as genuine watch.
Two beautiful vintage Rolex watches
A lot of people have shown their interest in vintage replica Rolex watches, so I want to start a project, I want to find a trusted resource that offers high quality vintage replica Rolex in our market, then take photos of some vintage Rolex watches, and share these watches with you guys, will this project become hot? I mean, are you guys still interested in these vintage Rolexs? They are not super clones, I think they are only attractive to those guys who really love vintage Rolex. If you are looking for a super clone vintage Rolex whose quality is the same as Clean Daytona or VSF Submariner, I think there are no such type of replica vintage Rolexs in our market.
Before my project, I want to introduce two vintage Rolex watches today, one is Submariner, the other is a Paul Newman Daytona. Both are two of my most favorite vintage watches, they are also the mostly asked vintage Rolexs on my blog. Both watches can be found in Guangzhou watch market, but it is hard for you to find the exact one as in the pictures if you do not have a trusted supplier. The Submariner has a very strong vintage flavor, it features a cyclops lens, the “SUBMARINER” printing on the black dial is in red, the entire watch is brushed.
The Paul Newman Daytona is the mostly asked vintage Rolex, many clients have asked about this watch, and some bought one. You can also find the replicas of Daytona Paul Newman on some dealers’ websites, they said they are made by JK factory, I do not know, I had one very reliable source to get the best replica Rolex Daytona Paul Newman in correct case size, but I have lost his contact for many years, I need to find another source to get good quality Daytona Paul Newman. This Paul Newman uses a genuine watch part, which is its bracelet and clasp, so the price will be a little higher than the other Daytona Paul Newman you have seen from other places.
Vintage Daytona Paul Newman:
There are few new watches having published in our market in recent days, it is hard to find some new replicas to review, and I have been in the hospital for 3 days because of a bad cold, that was a really bad experience even I feel better now. These hospitals in China are jokes, the only purpose is to earn money, the doctor I met in last weekend acted very strange that makes me feel uncomfortable. I always want to introduce the best watches on my blog, this Daytona that will be reviewed here is a new face, I did not see it before, actually it is a custom-made replica watch, not from a factory, but made by somebody in the market, it has a high price. In recent years, there are more and more custom-made replica watches in our market, some are really nice.
The watch has the same case set as the other Daytona from Clean, 40mm diameter and 12.5mm in thickness, it is in yellow gold, it uses polishing and brushing, the sides of the case are smoothly polished with natural arc, the screw-in crown is not too outside, it is in a right position that is just under protection of the crown guards. The bezel is embeded with big square diamonds, on the back of each lug, there is a tiny symbol being engraved.
I found some dealers are making franken watches, that’s a big progress made in the industry, this also means the quality of the replicas has been greatly improved. A franken watch usually uses some genuine watch parts, but not all watch parts are genuine, it is based on a replica, and the genuine parts must be very compatible with the replica watch and work well, this must be done on a super clone watch.
The dial looks beautiful, not mean its diamonds, but the patterns, look like the skin of a tiger. It is said that on this replica, the diamonds on the bezel and dial are much better than the diamonds you see on most other super clone watches. The watch is equipped with a super clone 4130 movement from Clean factory. The watch comes with a black rubber band, if you have a large wrist size, you need to order one extra pair of rubber straps, Clean offers several options in the size of the rubber band for their Daytona.
JVS Factory Replica Explorer II 226570
I want to introduce more replica watches made by JVS factory because their watches are really good, as a stand-in during the closure of VS, JVS factory now has succeeded in this industry, some clients received watches from JVS and all said they are good. Today, I want to introduce two new replica Rolex watches from JVS, both are Explorer 226570, one is black, the other is white.
Actually I have given a review on Explorer II 226570 replica before, it was made by GM factory, and the latest version has come to V4. Yes, before JVS, the V4 edition from GM factory must be the best one in our market, now JVS factory just published the replica of 226570, so which one is best? I think both have a very close quality, the case finish, dial details and movement have the same quality. However, I will introduce this new JVS version to clients because I want them to try it, I trust the quality of JVS products. Sometimes JVS brings us surprise, while GM factory rarely makes mistakes.
The price of JVS Explorer 226570 is a little cheaper than that of GM factory, it does not mean the quality is not good, before JVS, GM is the only manufacturer to make this replica and has improved it four times, so they have the reason to sell this replica at a bit higher price. Like GM, JVS factory also makes the 42mm Explorer replica with 904L stainless steel, the case thickness is very close to that of genuine watch, which is 13mm, well, not the case of every piece from JVS has the same thickness, but it won’t exceed 13mm. The brushing on the case looks as delicate as that on GM, the engravings of bezel markers have correct thickness and depth, not sure about the black material on genuine watch, perhaps this is a big difference.
There is not need to tell you how close the dial is made to genuine, every super clone Rolex should have a perfect dial as long as it is from big factories like Clean, VS, in the past, Noob factory makes Rolex replicas with the best dial details, which almost do not have differences with genuine, this is honest and many customers have proven it.
The movement is a clone 3285 movement, which features correct hand stack and same functions as genuine Rolex 3285 movement. Currently this is the best clone 3285 movement, but Clean, JVS and GM still have not made their best efforts to develop a super clone 3285 movement, Clean has the strength to do a better job in researching and developing the movement, but they did not do this and still sell in a overpriced way, it is very frustrating.
It is our Lantern Festival yesterday, after that day, people from all kinds of industries have come back to work, about watch factories, now they accept orders but can not arrange delivery in time. In recent days, there is a question always being asked frequently, which factory makes the best Datejust II? I have written a lot of articles about the Datejust replica watches made by Clean factory and VS factory, so it is very normal if you have this question. Too many watch factories are making the replicas of same watches, so we are always confused when selecting the best one from them. I also have one question about the Datejust II, why does Clean factory sell them at the same prices as VS factory? We all know the biggest advantage of VSF Datejust is its 72-hour power reserve movement, and Clean does not use this movement, so why Clean factory is able to sell their Datejust II at such high prices like VS? We will discuss these two questions in my next article. Today, I want to introduce another beautiful timepiece from VS factory, it is a carbon Rolex Submariner.
This is a new watch from VS factory, it was published in January, now the replica Rolexs from VS are more popular than their Panerai, and VS has made a lot of DiW Rolexs in recent months. This DiW Submariner Parakeet has a special finish and outlook, its case and bracelet are entirely matte finished, and the carbon fibre bezel and dial are perfectly in line with this matte-finish style. The matte finish and carbon fibre are two big selling points of the replica, it uses a clone 3135 movement, well, this is no longer an advantage of a replica Submariner, because so many watch factories can use this movement, but the 3235 movement used in 41mm Submariner is indeed a big advantage of VS.
I really like the matte finish on the watch, the case has a diameter of 40.5mm and is measured to be 13mm in thickness. It is made with real 904L stainless steel material, the black bezel uses real carbon fibre material, so does the black dial. This is the first Submariner I saw with a carbon dial, the carbon texture looks different from that of ZF Richard Mille. VS said that the case profile is exactly replicated and very accurate, all case parts can be interchanged with those of genuine watch, I am not sure if this is true, I have learned that a lot of watch brands abroad use the watch parts made by factories in China. But they definitely have a more strict quality control than these replica watches.
For the Submariner, it is the mostly discussed replica watch in the past, it is also the replica watch that has been made with the most improvements, but now no factories are continuing to improve the Submariner, this does not mean the Submariner is perfect, whether the black or green one, I still think four parts on the Submariner have obvious flaws, the bezel pear, the bezel markers, the axis of hand-set and the luminescence, what do you think? For example, the shape of the bezel pearl and its position, the material usage inside those bezel markers, how long will the dial lume last in the darkness? The factories have stopped improving the Submariner, perhaps they can not solve these issues forever.
