In the past, I always thought that the replica Patek Aquanaut is made by ZF, which is Z factory we usually call, but I changed my thought after watching a lot of comparison video reviews about Aquanaut, there is no best, no perfect replicas, but if you insist on choosing the best one from a lot of versions made by different factories, I recommend the one from 3K, because it has the best movement.
Before, a lot of customers bought the Aquanaut watch from ZF and they were over satisfied with the quality, especially the movement, which is modified on basis of Miyota 905 but has few issues, like the 15400 made by ZF, also very stable. Actually I did not notice that 3K had developed their super clone 324 movement because of the stable Aquanaut from ZF.
The super clone 324 movement developed by 3K and a movement factory in Dandong is indeed a treasure in this industry, this changed the competition situation on Aquanaut in the market. That super clone 324 movement is a 1:1 imitation of the genuine Patek 324 movement, because of this movement, the Nautilus and Aquanaut from 3K can be made to be the same thickness as genuine. Now I think the Aquanaut from 3K is the best just because the movement they developed is more stable than the one equipped in ZF.
Second, the super clone 324 movement makes it possible to get a perfect replica Aquanaut. The Aquanaut from 3K is not perfect, but the movement allows the watch to be customized. A lot of people got an Aquanaut from 3K and installed the dial, hands and date wheel bought from SW, then the Aquanaut becomes much better. A lot of people are buying such type of custom-made watches now. Because ZF does not use the super clone movement, so it is impossible to do any custom-made jobs on their Aquanaut.
Third, 3K has always been updating the case shape and watch parts on the Patek Aquanaut, now the Aquanaut is updated with new 330 movement, you can see all Aquanaut Patek replicas from 3K have been engraved with “330” on the movement plate, by the way, they are also using the new clasp now.
So, if you want to do a customized job to get a perfect replica Patek Aquanaut, I only recommend the Aquanaut from 3K factory.
