After our holiday, there are exciting news coming from our watch market, the biggest one is that Noob will immediately unveil the V10 edition of Submariner 116610LN and 1166LV, and they will also publish the full golden Daytona and green Daytona at the same time. As Noob’s technology on their 4130 movement becomes more mature, they will install this movement in more Daytona watches, so we will have more choices than before.
Besides the release of the green Daytona this time, Noob will bring us a big surprise, that’s the Submariner 116610LN and 116610LV, which will be upgraded to V10. Noob claimed that many improvements were made on V10, but I see the biggest change on the movement, please check the movement photos below, it is 3135, can you tell it is a real or a clone? It is a clone 3135 but I can not see any difference.
Among all watch manufacturers, only Noob makes the best clone 3135 movement that looks closest original Rolex 3135. From V6 to V10, Noob has improved a lot, especially on the movement, to guarantee there are no issues. The new 3135 has three big features, better decoration on movement plate,noiseless auto rotor and balance spring.

Super 3135 movement used in next V10 Submariner 116610LN and 116610LV:
Whether PAM 979, PAM 1616, PAM 616 or PAM 799, these Panerai replica watches which VS factory has published in recent two months all belong to Submersible models, today, I want to introduce another Panerai Submersible replica watch, it is a special edition for Mike Horn, the genuine watch has a reference PAM 984.
Now back to this PAM 984 replica watch, it is an art work from VS factory. The watch is fully made of solid Titanium material, like other Luminor Submersible models, this special edition uses a 47mm case that is fully brushed, while the case is not too thick, it is only 15mm, not 17mm thick. The bezel is uni-directional rotating, it has engraved markers that are brushed in sand-finished bezel background, this looks amazing and gives a strong visual effect.
The dial is black, it is sandwiched, the upper plate has skeletonized hour markers, the plate at bottom is painted with Swiss Grade SuperLume. Please notice, this PAM 984 is different from other Submersible models, it is like Omega Planet Ocean, the dial has two different lume light color, when you check the watch in dark condition, the minute hand looks blue, other hands and all hour markers look green. The subdial does not look like the one of traditional Luminor Submersible models, it looks more technological. This is a Mike Horn special edition, I think Panerai just let it looks unique.
The case back is solid and has detailed engravings, there is a big shark logo and Mike Horn signature, it looks so special. Open the back, the movement inside is a super clone P.9010, VS factory claimed that they made this movement according to genuine Panerai P.9010, we believed it is a custom-made, but it absolutely can not be compared with genuine Panerai P.9010. Somebody said it does not have difference, but I must say that the power reserve of this clone P.9010 is not that long like genuine. So, I suppose this clone P.9010 is also based on a Chinese automatic movement, just with decorated plates and auto rotor, and also the balance wheel is changed to correct position. So, never think that a replica watch can have the same movement as original watch.
At last, about the water resistance you guys mostly concern, you can wear the replica watch while washing your hands and swimming, but do not go to a deep diving with it. By the way, not all replica watches can accompany you to swim, this is true. Sometimes your dealer can pick up a good replica with perfect water resistant performance, sometimes if the watch is not sealed well, the water can easily penetrate the case.
Now, these vintage Rolex Submariner watches are very rare in genuine watch market, you can not get any one of them even you have money. So, sometimes a vintage Rolex Submariner is more attractive to a watch collector than a modern Submariner model. The following pictures describe all vintage Submariner models available in our market. Among them, there are Submariners with date, Submariners with no date, some are with stainless steel bracelet, some are with nylon bands in different color, some are with nubuck leather in different color. Among the following vintage Submariner Rolex watches, first, most of them have a case diameter of 38mm, their crystal face is domed plexi plastic, the movement inside is an Asia clone ETA 2836, the bezel can work like genuine Submariner. If you are interested in any one of them, please contact me through email, [email protected]
OM started to make their reputation when they published the first Speedmaster Chrono with full functional hour and minute counter. In recent years, OM expanded their business to other models like Omega Seamaster and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, now, I see the potential this factory has, it has the ability to become a big factory.
Today, I want to introduce one Omega Seamaster Diver replica watch from OM factory, it is the latest model whose dial has wavy texture. Before, the dial only has black and blue options, now, OM also offers this white dial option. Compared with the black and blue dial version, this one with white dial is my favorite.
First, I do not like this Seamaster watch just because it uses a wavy texture dial. Why did Omega abandon their smooth black dial and adopt this wavy dial? I do not think this wavy dial is more classic. However, on this model, its white dial just smoothens the wavy texture, I did not even notice it if I have not checked carefully. Like the black bezel, the white dial uses real ceramic material, the black bezel matches the white dial perfectly, it makes the watch look more classic than the one with black dial. On the dial, both hour markers and hands are filled with white luminous material, in dark condition, you will see two different lume light emitting from the dial, OM factory makes the dial lume correct. The only flaw which I can find from the dial is that the edge of hour markers is a bit thick. Check the date font shown in the window opened at 6 o’clock, although it is centered, but the date font is not made to be perfect.
About replica Omega Seamaster watches, VS factory has always been in the leading status. Although sometimes OM factory is faster than VS to publish the newest mdels, their quality can not still be compared with that of VS factory.
I think this forged carbon Richard Mille watch will be out of stock soon, especially after introducing it on my blog. JB factory researched and developed this replica watch in last month, once being released, it has caught a lot attention. For tourbillon watch in our market, JB factory makes the best ones, the advanced tourbillon technology is their biggest advantage. About this Richard Mille, I highly recommend it to our watch fans, especially those who love tourbillon device. First, like genuine watch, the replica is also made of forged carbon material, the prints on the case look unique. This big watch does not feel heavy due to its carbon case. Second, the replica uses an Asia handwinding tourbillon movement, well, on the the skeleton dial, you can see all machine parts of the movement, it is spectacular, and we can see how outstanding job the JB factory has completed. Well, even the factory put a big effort in the finish of the dial, but it still has some difference with genuine. In my opinion, all brand replica watches with skeleton dial, including Roger Dubuis Tourbillon and most Richard Mille, their dial can not be made to be the same as genuine.
This Richard Mille tourbillon watch now only has one color to choose, the light blue one shown here. Please note, even though Richard Mille is positioned as a sports watch, please do not wear it when you do strenuous exercise, like playing basketball, etc. Especially for this tourbillon watch, you should cherish it very much, if you wear it to play basketball, you will destroy this precision tourbillon device, and finally you will lose more than $800 usd. You know, even a tourbillon watch can be repaired, but the cost the factory charges will be big.
About Richard Mille replica watches, I recommend you buy from KV factory. Some clients bought Richard Mille from this factory and had good feedback, their quality is guaranteed. And in recent two years, along with the high popularity of Richard Mille in Swiss watch industry, more and more beautiful Richard Mille replica watches were published by KV factory, most of them are forged carbon models, if you are a Richard Mille watch fan and want to buy one replica, please contact me, I will send you my collection.
Nowadays in this field, if you are new and want to buy a good one among so many replica watches coming from various manufacturers, I must say it is very hard, especially there are no purchase suggestion in this area on the internet. If you ask for advice in forums like repgeek, replica-watch or rwg, those people will only recommend you to buy the most expensive watches, they will not give you an honest advice. If you just entered this industry, I do not suggest you buy an expensive watch that is more than $400 usd, that’s too much money. So today, I picked up ten watches for you, each of them is uder $400 usd, they are also in good quality, I think they are the best choices for beginners.OM Factory Royal Oak 15400
1.OM Factory Royal Oak 15400
In many articles, I said J12 makes the best Royal Oak 15400 replica, especially the V5 edition they just published, it is perfect. But why I recommend the 15400 from OM factory to beginners, because it is almost $100 USD cheaper than J12 15400. Plus shipping fee, you need to spend almost $500 USD on a JF Royal Oak 15400 V5 Edition. The quality of replica 15400 from OM factory is also good, its dial has black, white, blue and grey color options. OM was good at making Omega Speedmaster Chrono before, now it has expanded its watch business, I trust their watch-making technology and service.DJ Factory Datejust 41mm 126334 with Jubilee Bracelet
2. DJ Factory Datejust 41mm 126334 with Jubilee Bracelet
From its name, you will know that DJ factory makes good quality replica Rolex Datejust watches. In our market, too many factories make Rolex watches, among them, the most famous are Noob, BP, AR, EW and DJ. However, for most Datejust watches, Noob does not have stocks, if you want to order a Datejust watch from Noob, you need to wait for more than one month or two. About this Datejust II 126334, AR, EW and DJ make it. While I only recommend beginners to buy the one from DJ. Why? Because I think DJ has two advantages, first, compared with AR factory, it is nearly $120 usd cheaper, second, compared with EW factory, DJ makes this Datejust with 904L stainless steeel, while EW only makes it with 316L stainless steel. This Datejust 41mm features a Jubilee bracelet, its dial has black, white, grey and blue options, I think the grey dial version is better. By the way, this Datejust is equipped with a golden Asia ETA 2824 automatic movement.
3. Noob V8 Submariner 116610LN
Submariner must be recommended. The latest version of Noob Submariner is V9. While V9 is sold at much more expensive than V8 edition because V9 uses 904L stainless steel. About other details, Noob claims that they are the same. So, I think it is no need for you to spend extra $100 USD to buy Noob V9 116610LN. About the movement, I suggest you choose Asia ETA 2836 movement, one of my client bought Noob V8 Submariner 116610LN with Asia 2836 movement, and he has been wearing the watch for almost three years, it is really stable and has few repairing rate. This watch is highly recommended for beginners.
4. JH Daytona Stainless Steel
Daytona is also a good choice, while too many factories are making replica Daytona, prices are different, quality also varies. If you have a big budget, I suggest you buy the latest version from Noob factory. If not, purchasing from JH factory is also a good idea, because whether the Daytona from Noob or AR factory is too expensive. The Daytona watch from JH factory is not only cheap, but also has a fully functional chronograph, the movement is 7750, whose stability has been tested for years.
5. F16 Factory Classic Fusion 42mm
Now, I confirm that JJ factory has been closed. So, the factories that make Hublot Classic Fusion replica watches are F16 and WWF. Both make good quality Hublot Classic Fusion watches, only different in case diameter. F16 makes 42mm Classic Fusion, while WWF makes 45mm Classic Fusion, here I recommend the 42mm Classic Fusion to beginners. The dial color varies, but the most classic is black or grey dial, here I show you the photos of the grey dial version.
6. ZF V5 Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve
About eight years ago, IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve was the best seller, nowadays, this watch is still selling very well. The best version, also the latest edition is V5, from Z factory(ZF). About the power reserve indicator, it is working like genuine, in movement outlook, the clone IWC 52010 movement is unbeatable, the movement also has a long power reserve that is up to 3 days, I have tested it. The white dial matches with black leather strap, looking so classic, it is must have dress watch.
7. Noob PAM 111
It is the first high end 1:1 replica Panerai, in the past, it is also the most iconic model of Noob factory. There are many other Panerai watches that are sold much better than PAM 111, but I think PAM 111 should have a position in this list. For daily wearing, I think stainless steel PAM 111 is more suitable than ceramic PAM 441 and PAM 438.
8. Noob PAM 127
Like PAM 111, PAM 127 also has become the iconic model of Noob factory, it is even more popular than PAM 111. With Unitas 6497 movement, Noob installs Y-Incabloc Shock Protection System on this movement, to enhance the stability of the movement. Actually all PAMs with such Unitas 6497 movement have few technical issues, almost no. So,if you are going to buy your first Panerai and want to wear it for years, please choose the one with Unitas 6497 movement, it is even more stable than the Panerai with automatic movement. By the way, in September, Noob gives special price for PAM 127.
9. V6 Ballon Bleu 42mm
The stainless steel model with white dial and blue hands is very classic, it is also a good gift in the coming Christmas Day, be prepare now. V6 is the first factory in our market to make replicas of Cartier Ballon Bleu, all sizes they make, including 28mm, 33mm and 42mm. I think this 42mm is more suitable for men. There are also other factories that make Ballon Bleu watches, but please purchase from V6, their quality is guaranteed. The movement inside this Ballon Bleu 42mm shown below is a clone Cartier 1847 MC, which is modified on basis of Japanese Miyota 9015. The factory also offers Asia 2824 movement option, both are in high quality.
10. VS Factory Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m
VS makes a lot of good quality Omega Seamaster replica watches, including the famous Planet Ocean, Seamaster Diver and 007 Special Editions, while considering daily wear for beginners who are going to buy their first replica watch, I think this Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m is the best choice. First, it is fully made of 316L stainless steel, not like most Planet Ocean with ceramic that is sold more than $400 usd, while this Seamaster Aqua terra 150m is under $350 usd. Second, through the crystal back, the self developed Super Clone 8500 by VS factory is flawless in appearance.
Now, all watches in this top ten list have been introduced, they represent the best quality at this price range from $300 usd to $360 usd. Some are even sold at about $250 usd. These watches have necessary functions for daily use, please consider.
In recent weeks, I have introduced several Panerai watches that are made of forged carbon, they are PAM 979 and PAM 1616, both have received a lot of attention due to their forged carbon material and unique prints on the case. Panerai has published a lot of Luminor Submersible models, the most popular one should be PAM 382 that is made with bronze material. However, in all new models Panerai published in 2019, the most are those made of forged carbon. It seems like the hot period of Panerai has passed away, now people’s attention was attracted by other brands such as Hublot, Richard Mille and IWC.
In our market, the replica PAM 616 was published by KW factory two years ago, today, this watch I am going to review is the V2 edition VS factory just released several days ago, now VS factory made some improvement on its previous version. The biggest updation on this latest PAM 616 lies in its movement, which has set the balance wheel in right 7:00 position, like PAM 441 and PAM 438, these hot PAMS made by VS factory are now all equipped with this Super Clone P.9000 movement.
Like PAM 1616 I just reviewed, PAM 616 is also made of forged carbon, the case and bezel look really big but they do not have a heavy weight like those stainless steel or ceramic PAMs, actually compared with Rolex Submariner or those full stainless steel models, I more like to choose a forged carbon Panerai as my diver’s watch, because it will have a more comfortable wearing feeling, especially when you in deep sea.
Different from PAM 1616, PAM 616 has a black dial with white dotted markers, there are a small second hand running at 9:00 subdial, the small hand works very smoothly, no ticking or jumping issues. Look at the last photo in the article, the dial lume light is very strong. The bezel pearl, hour markers and hands will emit the same green lume light in dark conditions.
This watch uses a black rubber band with classic Panerai OP Logo signature. In my memory, Panerai has used three types of bands in their Luminor Submersible models, brown leather straps for PAM 382, green nylon and this black rubber strap. The wide and thick brown leather strap is specially designed for PAM 382 Bronzo, while the black rubber strap is also a very ideal choice for PAM 616. This type of rubber band uses the natural rubber material imported from Malaysia, it is soft and has a strong stretching.
PAM 382 is one of the best-selling Panerai watches, I think PAM 616 is also pursued by a lot of watch fans, if not, VS factory would not continuously improve it and publish its V2 edition.
This is the second Carbotech watch I have seen in this month. The first is PAM 979, this watch has a reference PAM 1616. Both are the latest Submersible models Panerai published in 2019 SIHH. Now you can find good quality replicas of both in our market, it is really lucky for us. VS is always the first factory to make the replicas once there are new Panerai watches published each year, yes, I admit that VS factory, whose previous name is KW, has a long history in making replicas of Panerai and can always bring us surprise in this field.
Like Submariner 116610LN and Daytona Super Clone 4130 for Noob factory, VS factory also has their own iconic models, such as PAM 441, PAM 438, PAM 382, etc. I think this PAM 1616 will also be on this list.
This replica uses real Carbotech material like genuine PAM 1616. The case is big in 47mm and 17mm thick, but the whole watch does not feel heavy just because it uses this lightweight carbon material. The case, bezel and lugs all have unique prints. The bezel has blue pearl and blue markings between 0 and 15.
Compared with the blue color usage on this PAM 1616, I prefer the white and black on PAM 979. Actually I do not like this style, the blue applied on lume bezel pearl and hour markers and hands makes the watch a bot show off.
On black dial, the hour hand and minute hand are skeleton, there is blue lume coating on the tip. The blue lume coating applied on hour markers and hands is thick and can make them have a long-lasting superlume in the dark. Like genuine PAM 1616, the replica has two different lume light on the dial.
About the movement, it is super clone 4130, I can say it is completely custom made by VS factory, this movement has become the pround of VS factory, with it, all PAMs replicas can completely achieve the full functions of genuine Panerai, including GMT, which works as accurate as genuine, also adjusted like genuine, this is unbelievable.
Now before introducing this replica Rolex Daytona, let us compare Noob Daytona and ARF Daytona. Both Daytona watches are in high quality, they represent the highest watch-making technology in our market. However, they are different from each other. First, now the best replica Rolex from Noob is Daytona with Super Clone 4130, other Rolex watches made by Noob can not compete with AR factory. The only advantage of Noob is their Daytona. Second, AR factory makes the Daytona without full chronograph function, while Noob has the full chronograph, but that does not mean Noob Daytona is better and more stable than ARF Daytona, instead, in movement, I more prefer the 4130 installed in ARF Daytona, it is slimmer and has lower repairing rate.
In finish, ARF perfectly inherits the watch-making technology of its parent company J12. The case and bracelet has a better finish than that of Noob, I can say that no other watch companies in our market have such a good case finish like AR factory does on their replica watches. The case is made with 904L stainless steel, with 18K yellow gold coating that is measured to be 5 mils thick. This replica is the latest V2 edition, it is the newest edition, there are still no V8 or V9 editions, about Daytona, Noob factory also has not published the V8 or V9, so, please do not be cheated by other websites that claim to be Noob factory.
This enhanced V2 edition has bezel being updated, the thickness of bezel engravings is closer to that of genuine Daytona. If you have ever bought the V1 edition of ARF Daytona, you can compare them. Each corner of the case is finished smoothly so that you will not have any scratch feeling when wearing the watch. Like Noob Daytona, now ARF also engraves these secret symbols on the back of each lug.
On this Daytona, the dial has black and white options. The dial is also improved on the V2 edition. Especially the minute scales, their thickness is corrected and closer to that of genuine. The engravings on inner bezel are more clear and clean, the spacing between each “ROLEX” word is correct. Overall, the dial completion is so perfect besides its fault minute-chronograph counter and hour-chronograph counter, the hands on these two subdials are fixed, they do not have function. However, this is not a big deal, I do not care about the chronograph when I wear a Daytona, besides, if you operate the chronograph too often on a Noob Daytona, it will have technical issues.
About this V2 Edition Rolex Daytona from AR factory, if the full mark is 10, I give this watch 9.5. Hope AR factory can fix the chrono issue while still maintaining the stability of the movement.
Pilot is one of the most successful series IWC has ever published, it has so many classic models that a lot of people are in pursuit of them. In 2019, IWC is the winner because they unveiled several watches that deeply attracted the eyes of our watch fans, including Pilot Bronzo, Pilot Chrono Spitfire Chrono and this Spitfire IW387903. as one of the few brands that make Pilot’s watches, IWC may be is the most successful, I like the design of IWC, it is more suitable for Asian than other Swiss brands.
In May 2019, I introduced one IWC Pilot replica watch that is made with bronze material, today, I want to show you another great Pilot Spitfire watch from another factory, which is Z factory. We know V6 is a big factory and they make a lot of good quality replica IWC watches, but Z factory is the dominance in replica IWC field.
This replica IWC Spitfire watch from Z factory has a big advantage, that is the sapphire crystal has double AR coating, which looks a bit bluish. So, when you read the time from the dial at any angle, it will be very clear, just like the crystal does not exist.
Besides the crystal, there are other two improvements Z factory has made on this replica watch. First, the circles on subdials are made more delicate, their thickness and spacing between each circle are more accurate, closer to genuine watch. Second, the shape of the hands, especially the propeller-shaped end of the central second-chronograph hand is made correct.
The final thing you concern about is if the replica watch has a full chronograph function. I must say yes. The watch is equipped with the most widely used Asia Valjoux 7750 movement, you can operate the chronograph buttons like you do on a genuine. Thanks to the solid case, Z factory did not make too much modification on the movement, so it could maintain a high stability of the original movement.
It is a new arrival, but Z factory did not raise its price, it is sold at much cheaper than other Spitfire watches, so I recommend it if you are a pilot watch fan of IWC.
