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.
