TED is a new name in this industry given by VS factory, actually it is a name VS used to publish their replica Rolex watches with increased weight. I have heard that Clean will also publish the Rolex replicas with added weight, now we expect to see what name Clean will use.
In the entire month of November, all attention is on the replica watches with added weight published by TED, APS and Gold, in next year, I think there will be a more fierce competition on these watches between VS, APS and Clean.
Currently TED only makes the YachtMaster 226659, Gold factory has published a lot of Daytonas and YachtMaster with rubber band, today, let me do a simple comparison review on the replica YachtMaster 226659 between TED and Gold.
There are three editions of replica YachtMaster 226659 you can buy, the first one is made by VS factory, which is a regular version and was considered to be the best in the past, the second one is made by TED factory with added weight, the third one is made by Gold factory, among these three watches, the one made by Gold factory has the heaviest weight, which is about 152 grams, but still lighter than the genuine watch.
Added with tungsten steel, the YachtMaster 226659 on both TED and Gold is heavier, but some people told me on the YachtMaster from TED, only the case back is added weight, while on the Gold Factory version, the entire case is added weight so it is heavier than the TED version. Well, because of the special properties, the case made with tungsten steel is harder to be polished, so I think this is the reason why TED did not add tungsten steel material in the case but only in the case back. On the case, especially on the lugs and case back of the Gold Factory version, its finish is not as good as that on VS YachtMaster.
The rubber band on the Gold Factory is also longer than that of TED. From the comparison pictures in hand, we can see some subtle difference, the rotating bezel also has a different feeling, on TED, the bezel is smooth, while on the Gold, you will feel a little tight when rotating the bezel.
By the way, the YachtMaster made by TED uses VS 3235 movement, while the YachtMaster from Gold Factory is equipped with Shanghai 3235 movement, which has a shorter power reserve than VS 3235.
At last, currently I do not suggest you buy these Rolexs with added weight, whether made by Gold, TED or APS, they are still being improved, when Clean enters this field in next year, I think they will improve the quality and there will be better versions.
