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.
It is not a new Patek Philippe Aquanaut watch, the 5164A was already available long time ago, while GR factory published its first replica in June, 2020. About ten days ago, Z factory, also named ZF, released the replica of this Patek Aquanaut 5164A. Between GR and ZF, which version should you choose, I recommend ZF. Although the latest version from GR is V2, it still can not be compared with ZF, because the latter makes the case thickness correct.
About this replica Patek Aquanaut 5164A replica, I think the biggest difference between ZF and GR lies in the case thickness, the 5164A from GR is 11mm thick in case, while the one from ZF this time is only 8.5mm thick, so compared the two, I would rather to choose from ZF, it is much thinner.
This is a very interesting Patek Philippe watch, under its sports appearance, we can see its multi functions, Aquanaut is a sports model of Patek, while a very practical GMT function is added to this watch, it is very convenient for business use, I think people who like sports watch and usually travel around the world will consider it.
About the functions, too much difference. Genuine watch has a real GMT function, the GMT hand is adjustable, while on this replica, the central GMT hand can not be adjusted, the small square window beside “HOME” and “LOCAL” are more like Day and Night display in two different time zones, on this replica, you can see switching white and blue background in the two windows. I think ZF wanted to make this function correct, but I do not think it is as accurate as genuine watch. By the way, the dial looks more like gray, not pure black. The date display is at 6 o’clock, you can adjust the date by pushing the button at 5 o’clock.
It is a great replica watch with correct timing and date, although with some false operation in functions like GMT and Day/Night display, it is still an acceptable top grade replica watch. By the way, it is cheaper than the basic Aquanaut and Nautilus models. If you are looking for a Patek Philippe replica watch with multi functions, Aquanaut 5164A and Nautilus Moon Phase 5712 will be two good options, the latter is from PPF.
Most readers here are men, and for replica watches, I seldom gave reviews on ladies models, most of them are mens watches. There are a lot of good quality replica watches for men in our market, such as Noob Submariner, ZZF Submariner, Noob Daytona, VSF PAMs, ZF IWC Portuguese, there are sports and casual models, but what about ladies watches? Which factories make the best ones? There are absolutely good quality replicas of ladies watches from different factories, and I also feel it is time to make a summary. So below, I will recommend some hot models for ladies.
First, Cartier, under this brand, there are several models recommended, including Ballon Bleu, Panthere, Santos. For many ladies, they love to choose Cartier, it is a famous jewelry brand and their watches also can show their female elegance at the most. About Ballon Bleu, women have many models to choose, the case size, dial, band, a lot of styles and combination, 28mm, 33mm and 36mm are all ok for women, and the movement also has quartz and automatic options. If your wife needs one Ballon Bleu Cartier replica watch, please tell me, I will send the most complete collection for you to choose. By the way, if you are going to buy a Ballon Bleu, just go with V6 factory. About Panthere, there are stainless steel, golden and two tone model, which one you like, that depends on which style you want to try, they are all good, because these Panthere are from GF, which is a very famous factory making many good quality replica watches. Check photos below, if you want to know more details of these Cartier watches, please email me.
Second, some Rolex watches. There are a lot of good quality Rolex replica watches for women in our market, although not made by big factories such as Noob and AR, their quality can meet the standard of most ladies. Rolex diver’s watches such as Submariner and Sea-Dweller are too big for women, while GMT-Master II and Daytona do not look feminine, so here the only Rolex model I recommend for ladies is Datejust. Both 28mm and 31mm Datejust are good for women.
Third, sports watches are not only attractive to men, they are also loved by many women. Here I want to recommend some sports models for ladies. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Patek Philippe Aquanaut. Royal Oak ladies models are measured to be 33mm in case diameter, a very suitable size for women, made by JF factory, there are a lot of styles for you to choose, bezel with diamonds or without, both available. About Patek Aquanaut, ladies models are in 35mm, and two versions are available, one is equipped with quartz movement, the other uses Miyota 9015 automatic movement, both are from PPF factory.
About ladies watches, too many options, for example, many young girls like Chopard that looks bling bling, Chanel white or black ceramic watch is also loved by many ladies, for some reasons, I can not introduce Chopard and Chanel models here. Please contact me if you like one of these ladies watches posted above.
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.
