ZF is one of the three factories that did not stop offering replica watches during this raiding period, the other two are PPF and 3KF. I do not know the background of ZF, it is indeed a big watch factory here in China, during every raiding in the past, ZF’s business was never affected, this is a very powerful factory. Today, I want to introduce top quality IWC Big Pilot replica watch from ZF, it is not the latest model, this watch was published in 2018, now, some people still want this watch when talking about the best Big Pilot replica watch.
IW501004 is a big watch, which has a diameter up to 46mm, big case with a large crown, the watch is specially designed for people who love big military watches. Like genuine, ZF uses solid Titanium material on the case, high grade Titanium, which is brushed. Unfortunately the case is too thick, almost 15.5mm, I do not know the thickness of genuine watch, but I think it is thicker than the real watch. The case back is clean, only some engravings of water resistant depth and model information on the center.
The dial is black, lume light is strong, in dark conditions, you can see hour hand, minute hand and every hour marker are emitting green light, which is very strong. If having absorbed enough light during the day, the lume light will be long lasting in the dark. Actually, the dial adopts the design of classic Pilot’s watch of IWC, while adding a power reserve indicator on the dial and a big onion-shaped crown makes it a big pilot. The small blue hand on the right is indicating the remaining power of the watch. The power reserve works, but not as long as that of genuine.
The leather band greatly adds points to this replica, it is brown and fitted with a deployant clasp, I can see four rivets on the band, the decoration of rivets makes the watch have a somewhat vintage style, I like the design of this leather band.
Overall, if you are looking for the best replica of Portuguese, Pilot, Big Pilot or Spitfire, just go with ZF, they make the best ones.
Top 10 Best Selling Replica Watches in 201It is the end of 2019, now time to make a summary of this year. The growth of replica watch industry in 2019 is rapid, watch manufacturers in our market also introduced a lot of good quality replica watches, it is an amazing year. Noob, AR, GM and other factories published a lot of replica watches with superior quality in 2019, this was unimaginable in the past, now it is happening. In return for loyal readers of my blog, today I will post an article to introduce the best-selling replica watches in 2019, I choosed ten watches to describe in this article, actually, you know, there are certainly more than ten, and some other watches are even sold better than these ten pieces, however, the ten watches in this article must be the ones that receive most attention. Here they come below.
1.Noob Daytona with Super Clone 4130
Daytona must be Noob’s hero product in 2019. In the first half of 2019, Noob gradually lost their advantage when facing AR factory because AR firstly used 904L stainless steel in their replica Rolex watches. However, in the second half of 2019, with the release of their Daytona products made with 904L stainless steel, Noob began to get competitive advantages again. So, I must say Daytona is the hero product of Noob in this year. Noob made improvement on their Daytona three times in this year, the latest version until now is V3, several clients who bought Noob Daytona are all satisfied with the quality.
2. ARF Submariner
Why do I recommend Submariner from AR factory in the second position? Maybe a lot of people do not agree with me, they think the Rolex Submariner of Noob should be in this position or even in the first position. I do not think so. Take Submariner 116610LN or 116610LV for example, Noob has improved both models for several times, now the version is updated to V10, they have also been proven to be very perfect, however, I do not think the Submariner from Noob can be compared with the one from AR factory, at least in case and bracelet finish, as well as bezel construction, the Submariner from AR factory is better. Now, AR factory has updated their 116610LN and 116610LV to V3 edition, they also offer 3135 movement option like Noob.
3. PPF Nautilus
Actually I feel very struggled to put the PPF Nautilus in this position, because the Nautilus from MKS and PF is also very good. But in the second half of 2019, when people talking about Nautilus, it is all about PPF. Among all Nautilus models PPF made, the best-selling must be the one with “blue/gray” dial. Please see photos below, the dial is actually blue, but it also looks a bit gray. Actually before PPF, the best-selling Nautilus is coming from MKS and PF, however, among those three watch manufacturers, PPF is the only one that makes the correct blue dial of Nautilus, plus the high demand of Patek Philippe Nautilus in genuine watch industry, so I think this is a reasonable position for PPF Nautilus.
4. JF Royal Oak 15400
Royal Oak is the bracelet-style jewelry for men, and 15400 is the most popular model. If you do not like Rolex, then a Royal Oak 15400 is a must-have bracelet timepiece for a man. Among various manufacturers, I still think JF makes the best replica of Royal Oak 15400, even ZF made the same watch in recent days, it still can not be comapred with the one made by JF. Well, this timepiece has a Miyota based movement that has a noisy auto rotor, this is the only issue with the watch, but I do not see it is a big problem for this watch, Miyota movement has a high stability and accuracy, now many replica watches are using this movement.
5. Noob GMT-Master II 116710BLNR
This GMT-Master II Rolex watch from Noob is very controversial, well, I have to admit that many customers will consider 116710BLNR when they want to buy a replica Rolex, and this watch occupies a large amount of sale among all Rolex replicas produced by Noob. So, this is the main reason why I put this GMT-Master II in the fifth position. This watch is equipped with a clone 3186 movement, which offers the same time, date and gmt setting as genuine watch, this is what most customers care about on a replica Rolex GMT-Master II, while Noob factory makes it correct. However, GMT-Master II is also the replica Rolex which I do not recommend to my clients, because the clone 3186 movement from Noob currently has a high repairing rate. Hope Noob will improve the stability of this movement in the future. If the movement becomes better and more stable, the watch will be the most sought after product in our market.
6. GF Avenger BlackBird
It is the best-selling Breitling watch in this year. GF has updated it to V4 version, for this Breitling watch, before I wrote a dedicated post to introduce it, you can read the review here. GF makes this replica with A2824 movement, absolutely you can buy one with real Swiss ETA 2824 from another factory. However, the quality from GF is the best, in my opinion. For people who love cool black watch, I recommend Avenger BlackBird, the watch comes with one black rubber strap, which feels very comfortable to wear, the big-size crown is also more convenient for you to rotate, although it uses an A2824 movement, the watch still has a high stability.
7. V6 Ballon Bleu
In this top ten list, Cartier Ballon Bleu is the only one with round case, a lot of men are not willing to buy a Ballon Bleu wrist watch, maybe you guys do not think it deserves this position, however, I need to put it in this position, because Cartier Ballon Bleu is one of the wrist watches which are women’s favorite, and it accounts for a large share in women’s watches sales, so I think there should be a position for Ballon Bleu in this list. Besides, whether it is in 28mm, 33mm, 36mm or 42mm, Ballon Bleu can be equipped with a real Swiss movement. For example, if it is a Ballon Bleu in 28mm, then it has a Swiss quartz movement option, a 33mm or 36mm Ballon Bleu can be equipped with real Swiss ETA 2671 movement, this is the movement advantage of Cartier Ballon Bleu, but you can not find this advantage in other popular brands like IWC, Panerai, etc.
8. VSF PAM 441
Panerai is one of the best-selling brands in our market, so I need to leave a position for it, while it is a truth that Panerai has a lot of models selling very well online, PAM 111, PAM 127, PAM 438, PAM 441, PAM 382, etc., these are all best sellers in Panerai collection, but there is only one position, I left it for PAM 441. A lot of people think that PAM 438 deserves this position more than PAM 441, actually both PAM 438 and 441 are the best-selling ceramic Panerai watches in our market, both watches are ceramic, PAM 438 has a ceramic band, while PAM 441 has a brown ASSO leather strap, in my opinion, the leather band can be more accepted by the public. By the way, PAM 441 from VS factory is equipped with a Super Clone P.9001 movement, which has balance wheel in correct position at 7:00 and offers genuine movement time setting.
9. ZF Big Pilot Le Petit Prince
ZF has made a lot of popular models, especially in IWC area, the Portuguese 7 Days and Big Pilot made by ZF have a high quality, which has been recognized by many buyers. Too many good IWC models and I do not know which one should be ranked in this position, so here I choose the one which my blog readers mostly asked about, it is Big Pilot Le Petit Prince, reference IW500908, with blue dial. The latest version of this replica from ZF is V2, there are four places which men like on this watch, big size, charming blue dial, solid case back and real power reserve display, plus advanced watch-making technology, ZF makes it to be a very good replica, one of the must-have models for IWC watch fans.
10. VSF Planet Ocean Deep Black
I almost forgot Omega, now until the last one, I remembered Omega should have a position in this top ten list. If you need an Omega watch, the only factory I suggest you buying from is VS, whether the Omega watch is Aqua Terra, De Ville or Planet Ocean, VS makes the best replicas of them. Too many replica Omega watches in good quality from VS factory, but there is only one position left, so I give it to this Planet Ocean Deep Black. Maybe a lot of other Seamaster watches with more common outlook are sold better than this Deep Black Planet Ocean, but this is a new face we saw in Planet Ocean collection in 2019, very rare ceramic case and dial, you will immediately recognize it among various Planet Ocean models, the replica is equipped with a clone 8906 movement, which features a black balance wheel like genuine, the rubber band is also in black, which is in line with the black color theme of the entire watch.
Except the ten watches above, there are many other replica watches that are sold very well, for example, Rolex Submariner No Date 114060, Datejust from ARF, Sea-Dweller Single Red 126600, Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve from ZF, Royal Oak Diver 15703 from JF, Patek Philippe Aquanaut from ZF, etc., overall, 2019 is a big year for replica watches industry, and I think there will be more good quality replica watches published in future.
Several days ago, I posted an article on my blog about the top five best-selling replica Rolex watches, yes, some of them attracted a lot of my readers, since the end of 2018, a lot of factories started to make the ultimate 1:1 replica Rolex with genuine watch materials and super clone movement, you have to admit that the watch-making technology has become more and more mature. Today, I want to give a review on the best-selling replica IWC watches, a top six watches in that list. These are the best of best, if you like IWC, do not miss them.
ZF Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve
Both ZF and YL factories make replicas of IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve. ZF makes the best one. Now, the latest version of Portuguese 7 Days has come to be V5. It has a lot of options in dial and leather strap color. However, the best-selling is this one with white dial, blue hands and blue leather strap. Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve is popular because every man who wants one dress watch will think about it. The replica is perfectly made, with a real power reserve indicator, although the power reserve capacity can not achieve 7 days, it has already been able to 3 days. The blue steel hands and hour markers look very elegant. ZF is the factory that developed a super clone IWC 52010 movement for this watch.
2. ZF Big Pilot Le Petit Prince IW500908
First, once the Le Petit Prince being unveiled, it was sold much better than any other Big Pilot models. ZF makes the best Pilot Le Petit Prince replica watch. The Le Petit Prince Pilot watch with blue dial is the best-selling model, with a reference number IW500908. It is sold very well, first, the watch is big, 46mm in case diameter, second, solid case back has a Le Petit Prince engraving, the case back is solid, so people can not tell if it is a fake watch from the movement. However, from dial details and case finish, it is very hard for a person to identity, even a watch expert. The sunburst blue dial ZF made is the dial that looks closest to genuine. The replica also features a sapphire crystal with blue AR Coating that is the same as genuine.
3. ZF Portuguese Chrono IW371446
Portuguese Chrono is one of the most popular Chronograph watches, from IWC, Portuguese Chrono is also considered to be a dress watch that is highly popular in watch fans. Between Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve and Portuguese Chrono, you must choose one as your first IWC watch. Like the two watches above, the best replica IWC Portuguese Chrono watch is also made by ZF. It has a lot of models, here I make a basic review on the one with white dial, blue markers and blue leather strap. The newest edition of this replica from ZF is V3. The replica is made so well, it has a polished case that has the same thickness as genuine. The clone 79350 movement is independently developed by ZF factory, it offers the real chronograph function. There are many real features you can find on this replica, where you maybe saw on genuine watches before.
4. V6F Aquatimer Chrono IW376803
Aquatimer is the diver’s watch series of IWC. Now each Swiss brand has developed their diver’s watch model. The Aquatimer was sold very well before, but facing the high competition with Rolex’s Submariner and Panerai, many people are not willing to choose IWC Aquatimer as their first diving watch. However, this Aquatimer IW376803 from V6 factory is still a very good quality watch. With good case finish and stable Asia Chronograph movement, I think this full stainless steel watch should be in this top list.
5. MKS Mark XVIII IW327001
Before the release of Mark XVIII, the best-selling IWC watch is Mark XVI. However, the Mark XVI replica from MK factory has been out of stock for a long time. So I put this Mark XVIII IW327001 in this list. The latest version of this replica is V2. This watch looks extremely simple and may be the first choice for many beginners who want to choose a IWC watch as a start. The replica has a high stability because of the genuine Japanese movement Miyota 9015 inside, black dial features white Arabic numeral hour markers that are applied with Swiss lume, the whole watch has a good readability. Black leather strap is also a perfect match for this one. Between Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve and this Mark XVIII IW327001, I recommend you Mark XVIII.
6. ZF Pilot Chrono IW377709
Both V6 and ZF make this replica, but I recommend you buy from ZF. It uses a more reliable Asia Valjoux 7750 movement that runs seconds at 9 o’clock. Like Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve and Mark XVIII, this Pilot Chrono also has a very low repairing rate. The case finish is a big selling point of the replica watch, polished bezel is highly contrasting with the brushed case. Black dial has three small dials, the one at 9 o’clock features a small red hand, which is very eye-catching. The big triangle mark at 12 o’clock is an iconic feature of IWC Pilot. Too many elements on this 43mm dial, but they do not look crowded.
In my opinion, the six watches above are the best in our market, maybe they are too expensive for you, maybe you also have a top list in your mind, but it is absolutely more cost-efficient to select a replica watch that can last for years.
The watch that I want to share with you is a replica IWC Big Pilot, which is a new model that IWC just released. There is no reference number for this watch so far as it is new arrival. And, it will be very appreciated if you would like to share your knowledge and comments on this watch with me. We have been seen so many excellent IWC replicas in the market, such as Portuguese series, Portofino, Big Pilot chronograph, etc. Every replica IWC timepiece is masterpiece.
For the new watch models released recently, there is not so many surprising ones, but when I seen this IWC Big Pilot it felt like seeing a lover who haven’t met for a very long time. It is surprised and happy from the button of my heart. I admit that I like beautiful things, when we buy a watch, we like its design and look, and I think this is the most important part. In my opinion, there is no difference to buy original or replica watches, because replica watch’s design and quality is the same. Mostly, we are always attracted by its appearance.
This is the first watch made of aviation aluminum I have seen, it is lighter than the normal stainless steel watch on weight. The main color is matte grey, and the dial is brass, very elegant and passionate design. While turn the dial around, I can see the metal texture and light from it. Meanwhile, the 47mm size is also popular among the young. The function is including hour, minute, sub-second and power display. It is driven by a special factory made IWC Cal.51111 movement. Besides, the needles and markers are superlumed, very convenient for reading the time in the dark.
Many IWC fans are dissatisfied the ordinary Big Pilot or Pilot Chronograph’s back case design. As a limited edition, this replica IWC Big Pilot engraving with its version logo and there are three flying aircrafts, and this is the main theme for its limited edition. The bracelet is made of grey nylon, and the clasp has IWC logo. Z factory cares every detail very well, I think this is why they can always made high-quality and amazing replicas for us.
In 2008, there is one small factory in our market replicated Big Pilot, but the watches they made were greatly different from original in detail and movement structure, even the power reserve is fault, after 7 years, a big factory named Z wanted to replicate the Big Pilot, and they built this Le Petit Prince special edition, the dial and movement were improved, power reserve display is also real, the power reserve was increased from previous 42 hours to 120 hours. Today, I am going to introduce one of the Big Pilot replica which Z factory has made in recent days, it is the Le Petit Prince IW500908 replica, blue dial version with brown leather strap.
The replica features a 46mm stainless steel case, which looks very large especially its dial. The case is brushed while the round bezel is smooth polished. With a large onion-shaped crown, it is very easy to pull it out to adjust time and date. The crown is an iconic feature of IWC Big Pilot. The bezel, case and lugs are made of one-piece stainless steel, on the solid case back, a Le Petit Prince pattern is engraved, there are also other information engraved on the back, including water resistance depth and limited quantity. You can clearly see all lugs are well polished in each corner, two brown leather straps are connected to case through pins that are fixed by screws. The replica should have a good water resistance performance, the Z maker said it was tested in factory and could be 50m waterproof at least.
Blue sunburst dial attracts you most, all classic features of Big Pilot are displayed on it, big hour markers, including the triangle at 12, are all applied quality and durable luminous material, check the dial lume photo, hour markers emit dark blue light, hour and minute hands as well as power reserve indicating hand at 3 are emitting light blue lume, any way, the replica has the correct dial lume, it is 100% the same as genuine. The subdial at 3 o’clock is for power reserve display, it works like genuine and could show you the remaining power of the watch, after fully winding the replica, it could continuously work for at least 5 days, not really 7 days, because there are currently no replica watches could serve you 7-day power reserve except it is equipped with two barrels like PAM 441.
The strap on the replica is genuine brown leather, it is soft and feels comfortalbe, each strap has two round studs on the end that connects the case, this is a special feature on Big Pilot watches. The strap is fitted with a high quality deployant clasp, polished stainless steel clasp has correct engraving. The replica is great for Pilot watch fans to collect, it is also suitable for men to wear with business shirts.
You will be amazed by this watch when see it first in replica watch field. If you are a big fan of IWC, you should have started to focus on IWC collection since 2008, and read watch magazines, even to know more about the most creative designer under IWC SA, then you must have the same feeling with me, the watch IW5003 is very precious, only it is a replica, it is worth buying. Nowaday, you can not find so detailed specifications about this replica in other places, this is the first review about the turbine watch, if you focused on this watch before or interested in it, this post will let you learn a lot.
Before introducing the background and details of this replica IWC Markus Buhler, I will post some information of the genuine watch.
The movement won the first prize in IFHH de I’Horlogerie, the watch was collected by Musee de I’Horlogerie et de I’Emaillerie and it is the only watch that was named after designer in IWC history.
You will know its historic status after seeing the above information. Yes, IW5003 is a great milestone in IWC watchmaking history. Its main designer is Markus Buhler, the team is called “Buhler Project”, in the end of 2008, they produced 12 pieces of Big Pilot Markus Buhler Special Edition watches, the first watch was collected by Markus Buhler, the twelfth was permanently collected by Musee de I’Horlogerie et de I’Emaillerie, the left watches were sold to the public.
Next I will introduce the replica. The following is all components of IW5003.
There are really few introduction about the watch, you can not even find the specification of the genuine watch. Here comes the detail of the replica IWC.
The pictures above describe the outside details of the replica, besides the limited edition number and crown, there are no other places having engraving.
Super Lume dial and hands, the lume is painted according to the lume color of past Big Pilot replicas. To be honest, no one knows what the gen lume look like.
The movement uses Asian 6497 manual winding movement, which has turbine ornament on gear, the movement plate also has beautiful sunray patterns, it is the most beautiful Asian 6497 movement you have ever seen.
