The new V2 was just published several days ago, now it is available. I know Clean will upgrade their Panda Daytona in this year, because many Daytona fans complained the V1’s dial color, which looks like a little blue, now facing the competition from BT factory, Clean finally made some improvements on the V1 and published the latest V2 edition.
V2 is much better than previous V1, first, Clean changed the dial color, V2 dial is milky white, not like blue any more, I think that’s the main reason why many people did not buy the V1, they do not like the dial color. Second, the three points on the crown are on the same straight line, now it is curved on V2, which is the same as genuine. I think these are two big and obvious improvements on V2.
If you have both V1 and V2 in hand, you will see some other subtle changes, for example, the color of lume fillment on hour markers and hands is the same, which looks a little greenish, much closer to genuine than V1. On the dial, there are too many small changes if you compare both very carefully, the “DAYTONA” printing is one of them, on V1, it is in dark red, now Clean corrected it to be bright red on V2, which is closer to genuine. Check the SEL of V2 bracelet, is has a correct position now and does not stand that high like V1.
Now, you will know whether the Daytona received from your dealer is Clean V1 or V2 after reading these above. Beside, on the case back of V2, the cartoon character on the sticker should be SpongeBob, not Patrick Star and SpongeBob, there will also be a plastic cap protecting the case comes with V2 Daytona from Clean.
At last, I want to clear up some false rumors you may hear from the online market.
1.BT Daytona is the best, much better than Clean. No.
2.BT Daytona’s crystal has a better transparency, so it is closer to genuine and better than Clean. No. Some people said that the sapphire crystal on genuine is also not that transparent like Clean.
3.Clean V2 Daytona is perfect. No. Like I said before, no replica watch can be made to be perfect.
4.BT Daytona’s movement is better than Clean. No. Actually both BT and Clean have found the movement manufacturer that offered SA4130 movement for Noob before. So, both factories use the same SA4130 movement in their Daytona, however, on the plates and auto rotor of the movement from BT and Clean, the engravings are different in depth and thickness.
This is the latest work from APS factory, now among APS collection, most of them are Audemars Piguet replica watches, there are popular models of Royal Oak 15400, which is the flagship model of APS factory because of the best clone 3120 movement inside. How about AP replicas from APS? I think the quality is good, especially the movement used in AP 15400, however, APS is still not among the ranks of big watch factories because the watch’s finish on the case and bracelet is not top quality, which can not be compared with ZF or J12 that have produced AP replicas for a long time.
This time, APS factory published two models of AP Royal Oak 15407, one is stainless steel, the other is rose gold, both have a skeleton dial and use 3132 movement.
The stainless steel replica AP is made with 316L stainless steel, the case has a diameter of 41mm and is measured to be 10mm in thickness. On the front of the case, you can see fine vertical brushing, the octagonal bezel is an exact clone of the original and has polished edges that highly contrast with the brushed parts on the case. About the crown, the engraving “AP” in sanded finish is not that good like you see on ZF AP, so APS factory still needs to improve it.
The dial is skeleton, a lot of machine parts you can see from this openwork dial, many people like this dial style, some already sent emails to ask me if there are good replicas of this skeleton AP before, now it is in stock. I do not like the watch with such a type of openwork dial, it is a bold design, and I like the standard model 15400 and 15500 more.
At last, I want to talk about 3K factory. We know they produced replicas of Patek Philippe Nautilus and Aquanaut, but now ordering Patek Philippe products is really slow, today, I found the reason, 3K now starts to produce Daytona, and they have another name, which is BT, their Daytona is very expensive, but the good news is that they use a super clone 4130 movement.
Having waited for a long time, now the replica of this Rolex GMT-Master II Sprite model is available, many readers here asked me about this watch, in our market, actually there have already been some replicas of this Rolex GMT, but they are cheap versions with price around 200 US Dollars, in last week, V9 factory published the replica GMT-Master Sprite, this is the first high quality replica of GMT-Master II Sprite, but I still think it is not the best one we should expect. Today, Clean factory just unveiled a news saying that their GMT-Master II Sprite will be in stock on May 5th. This is a very good news.
The Rolex GMT-Master II Sprite has two big features, first, it is the black and green ceramic bezel. About the ceramic bezel, it is a very important feature to tell if the replica is low quality or high quality. In my opinion, Clean factory makes the best ceramic bezel, whether on Submariner or GMT-Master II, the ceramic bezel from Clean is always the best, especially on Submariner 116610LV Hulk, the green ceramic bezel has the most correct color that closest to genuine. On GMT-Master II, like this Sprite model, on the black and green ceramic bezel, where does the black and green color transit? This is very important, many watch factories make it wrong, while Clean makes it correct, whether on previous GMT-Master II Batman or this GMT Sprite. The second big feature is its crown, which is positioned on the left side of the case, means left-handed. I seldom saw left-handed watches from Rolex, this is the first time. Some people wear it on the left or right hand, both ok, it seems to be a more fashion way to wear on left hand.
Clean makes this GMT-Master II Sprite with 904L stainless steel, it is real 904L stainless steel material, the case has a diameter of 40mm and is measured to be 12.1mm in thickness. Both case and bracelet are made with 904L stainless steel. It is the new GMT-Master from Rolex, there is a crown logo between “SWISS” and “MADE”. In the sapphire crystal at 6 o’clock, there is a tiny laser crown logo, which could be found when viewing at a certain angle.
The replica watch is equipped with a clone 3285 automatic movement, which has correct hand stack. In our market, currently no watch factories are able to research and develop a custom-made or a super clone 3186 or 3285 movement, but this clone 3285 is also a very good movement in GMT-Master II, it has all correct functions the same as genuine. I believe that some factory will make the custom-made or super clone 3285 movement in future, maybe it is Clean or VS.
On my blog, readers always emailed me and asked some things about watches and factories, some of them are seeking for the best replica watches made in our market, sometimes they are confused because of so many watch factories I mentioned on my blog, they do not know which factory to choose from. Here it is the last time for me to explain, any replica watch can not be perfect, each has their own advantages and shortcomings, if a replica watch is made by several factories at the same time, please make sure you choose from the factory that sells it at a higher price, or you can email me to seek advice, I will tell you which one is relatively better after comparing them.
The replica Rolex I am going to talk about is a blue Submariner 116619LB, it was made by VS factory in 2020, not a new model, but I want to share it with you guys, because I want you to know it is not a perfect replica watch although I always said VS factory makes the best Submariner. Now, in purchasing Submariner, I only recommend Clean and VS. Take this blue Submariner for example, both versions are good, the blue ceramic bezel insert on Clean is even better than that on VS, on Clean, the blue color on ceramic bezel is closer to genuine, the bezel pearl is also made to be better on Clean’s Submariner. Well, apart from the advantage on the bezel, Clean can not compete with VS in other details, especially in the movement, this blue Submariner from VS factory uses a custom-made 3135 movement, which is the best clone 3135 in our market, this is the truth, behind the solid steel back, I am not afraid that you open the back and check the movement, you can even compare it with a genuine Rolex 3135 movement, on every piece of movement plate, you can find the decoration is exactly the same as that of genuine 3135, this is hard to believe, but I am telling you the truth, about the power reserve, it is also improved on the VS’s 3135 movement, it is said that the Submariner can work for more than 60 hours after being fully winded. A movement is the heart of a watch, so, purchasing the Submariner from VS factory means the watch will have fewer movement issues in future.
At last, I want to share some new models already published or going to be unveiled in next days.
Clean factory is about to release Sprite 126720VTNR, the first batch will be available on May 10th.
These GMT-Master II from V9 factory will be available soon.
Two IWC Aquatimer watches from RS factory will be available soon.
We are experiencing a very difficult time, now the COVID-19 broke out again in many cities like GZ, SZ and SH, which also affected the business of many watch factories, however, orders still accepted by them, just a bit slower than before for them to release watches, shipping time is also affected, now the delivery usually takes more than 15 days, hope the pidemic will end soon.
In recent weeks, some factories unveiled several new models, for example, this blue AP Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph watch is exactly a new one from RS factory, it is the first time for me to see a AP replica watch with a colored ceramic case. This is not the first time for RS to make AP replicas, the first AP replica they produced is Royal Oak 15400, which is ok and may be not as popular as JF 15400 or ZF 15400, I almost have forgotten RS, and this time the new ceramic AP ROO Chrono watch they unveiled supprises me.
Before, only J12 factory made Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Secs@12, and their quality is always the best, now RS factory entered this field, this AP from them feels nice. The blue AP features a case that has a diameter of 44mm, case thickness is 16mm. The case is fully made with ceramic material, the black ceramic case and blue ceramic bezel. The case finish is ok, if you felt the finish of a JF AP’s case, you will not be satisfied with the case finish of AP from any other watch factories, but for this AP from RS factory, the case finish is nice, even can not be compared with JF.
This is a AP replica watch with all correct functions. Hours, minutes, small seconds, date and chronograph. On blue checkered dial, there are three small dials, each with different purpose. The subdial at 12 o’clock has a background that differentiates it from other two silver subdials, it is for small seconds, the one at 9 o’clock is a 30-minute chronograph counter, the one at 6 o’clock is a 12-hour chronograph counter. Each small dial has a correct function like the one on genuine watch. By the way, after you push the blue button on the case at 2 o’clock, the central big second-chronograph hand will start to work.
From the crystal back, the movement is beautiful and very close to genuine AP 3126 Calibre. Like J12, this Clone 3126 from RS factory is also a modification from 7750 movement, I hope J12 factory can research and develop out a super clone 3126 movement in future, just like Noob’s super clone 4130 in the Daytona, if that happened, I think the price will be increased to 1500 US Dollars. Besides this blue, RS factory also published green and rose gold one at the same time.
It has been a long time since VS factory has not published new watches, the last one they unveiled is the Submariner 41mm 126610LV in 2021, due to the raid and coronavirus, VS has been closed for many days, now they opened again and accept orders now. This Seamaster 007 is a new model which VS just made, it is also the only one new Omega Seamaster watch VS has published in recent two years, that’s sad to hear, if without situations in the market, I think you guys will find more new replica watches online.
This Omega watch is a limited edition of Seamaster 300m Aston Martin Neiman Marcus, genuine watch only has several pieces limited, for the replica, I do not know if there will be need of this watch, it does not look that cool like Seamaster 007 Spectre and Seamaster No Time to Die, if I am a 007 movie fan, I will choose a 007 limited edition watch between Spectre and No Time to Die.
VS factory offers two band options for the replica watch, stainless steel bracelet and black rubber strap. Usually you can buy the one with stainless steel bracelet and get the black rubber band for free.
The watch is a very high quality one like other Omega Seamaster watches from VS factory. I found one interesting thing, during the closing period of VS factory, some new factories like ORF appeared and offered customers Omega Seamaster replica watches, their quality is ok, but when VS back, ORF decided to sell their Omega Seamaster watches at reduced prices, because they know they can not compete with VS factory in this field.
There is an important notice from VS factory, before letting you know that, I want to share the specification of this Seamaster watch.
Movement: Clone 8807 Automatic, modification made on auto rotor and movement plates to make it look closer to genuine Omega 8807 Calibre Case Size: 42mm*13.5mm Case Material: 316F Stainless Steel Bezel: Titanium, Uni-directional rotating Crystal: Sapphire with AR Coating Dial: Grey, Blue Superlume on Hour Markers and Hands Bracelet: Stainless Steel/Black Rubber Water Resistant: 30m
At last, the notification from VS factory, it is very important, they will offer the last batch of watches in April 10th and 11th, yes, in this weekend, after that, VS will have a rest and stop accepting orders, it is said that they will have a rest for almost three months. So, if you guys want to order any watch from VS, please be quick to contact your dealer, maybe there is only one day left to place your order with VS.
In recent weeks, ZF has published some new watches that have attracted the attention of you guys, the most popular ones are the Hublot Big Bang Unico with colored ceramic case. Today, I am going to share another watch ZF unveiled several days ago, it is the Vacheron Constantin Overseas 4500, which is the mostly wanted VC replica watch in our market, many readers asked me if there are top quality replicas of this VC, I introduced the one made by 8F. The quality of VC Overseas 4500V from 8F is just ok, it is a good watch for people who do not want to spend too much.
About the new arrival ZF Overseas, I am a bit surprised when I heard of its price from the supplier, it uses the same movement as 8F, but I do not know why it has a much higher price than 8F. Certainly I have to admit that replica 4500V from ZF has a better finish, especially on case and bracelet, the movement decoration is also closer to genuine VC 5100 than 8F, however, I still think the replica 4500 from ZF is overpriced.
So, why ZF is able to sell this Vacheron Constantin replica watch at such a high price? First, ZF has a huge amount of followers who like their watches and appreciate the quality, so many people will still buy their watches and do not care about the prices. Second, about this Vacheron Constantin Overseas 4500V replica, 8F’s quality is not the best, it is only middle quality, so ZF grabbed the chance and made a better one, so they can position the watch at a higher price. Third, high price now seems to be a trend, ZF just follows this trend. Especially after the raid of last year, most watch manufacturers decided to raise prices of their watches. Whatever, if the watch has a very good quality, some people are willing to pay more to get the best one.
I am going to share some new models published in recent weeks.
First, seventeen pieces of new Rolex Daytona Paul Newman editions, there are golden and stainless steel models, made by WM factory.
The new Daytona Paul Newman is a good vintage Rolex, each of them uses Venus 75 manual winding movement, case diameter is 37.5mm, case thickness is 16mm.
The following new models are three Patek Philippe Nautilus watches, which are from GR factory. Three dial color options, including Tiffany blue, blue and grey.
Each of them uses GR’s clone PP 240 automatic movement, case is measured to be 9.5mm in thickness. Fake power reserve, other functions are real.
Next are five Big Bang Unico watches from Z factory. Each has a different color, there are red, yellow, white, blue and black. Their case and bezel are made with real ceramic material, including the colored models. Movement is an Asia 7750 decorated to look of genuine Hublot’s 1280.
The last two watches are Blaken Sea-Dweller, one is green, the other is blue. Both have a DLC black case, black bezel insert uses real ceramic material. Case inner material is not 904L stainless steel, it is 316F. Case diameter is 44mm, thickness is up to 18mm. Movement inside is an Asia clone ETA 2836.
It is hard for us in the past year 2021, both watch factories and their clients felt the difficulty. Watch factories was afraid of being caught and closed down, so they slowed down their production process and reduced stock quantity, while their clients always had a great demand for high quality replica watches, so their need can not be fulfilled, watches’ prices increased. And in 2021, two important watch manufacturers Noob and VSF were always in closing status, that means you guys could not get a lot of high quality watches like Rolex Submariner, Omega Seamaster and Panerai, especially Panerai replica watches, no other factories make good quality ones except VSF, so there was no place to source good quality replica Panerai watches during the entire 2021, very frustrating, yes, I felt too. Besides the watch factories, there were also problems with shipping, whose transit time was affected by coronavirus and took a bit longer than before.
However, during this difficult times, some watch manufacturers seized the opportunity, Clean is one of them, here the best sellers I am going to introduce, most of them come from Clean factory. Hope this article can give a guide when purchasing the best replicas, let’s start.
1.Clean Submariner 116610LN
It deserves this position. Whether it is a genuine or a replica, Submariner 116610LN is one of the best sellers. For people who are looking to buy their first replica Rolex, Submariner 116610LN becomes their first choice. Before, I recommend Noob V12 for this replica, but with the closure of Noob, I think Clean makes the best one.
2.Clean Submariner 116610LV
Rolex published 41mm Submariner before, they are 126610LN and 116610LV, Clean factory also made the replicas of them, but they are not as popular as the 40mm Submariner 116610LN and 116610LV. For the replica of 116610LV, I only recommend the one made by Clean factory. First, it Clean made the best green ceramic bezel itself, even the Submariner 116610LV made by ZZ factory we talked before also equips Clean’s bezel. So, if you want the best replica Rolex Submariner Hulk, do not try others, the Clean’s version is the best.
3.Clean Daytona 116500
With the closure of Noob factory, Clean seized the opportunity to develop their Super Clone 4130 movement and install in Daytona, so now, the Daytona replicas from Clean factory are considered to be the best ones in our market. This Panda White Daytona is the most popular one from Clean. Because only Clean uses Super Clone 4130 movement in Daytona, so their Daytona are usually sold at very high prices. I hope Clean can improve their Daytona and publish V2 edition and V3 edition in future, after all Noob often upgrated their watches before, hope Clean can learn this.
4.PPF Nautilus 5711 Blue
A few watch factories make Nautilus super replicas, PPF is one of them. Actually many people are confused because 3KF and PPF both offer top quality Nautilus 5711 replicas, actually their quality is almost the same. But for this specific model Nautilus with blue dial, I recommend PPF. First, PPF has updated this model several times, the latest version has come to V4. Second, many “experts” in this industry said that the blue dial on PPF 5711 is closest to that of genuine watch.
5.Clean GMT-Master II 126710BLNR Batman
The 126710BLNR Batman has always been the most popular GMT-Master Rolex watch in our market, for this watch, GM, VR and Clean factories make it. These three watch factories make this watch with good quality. Clean has a more accurate and natural ceramic bezel, the color of black/blue ceramic looks closer to genuine. About case finish and movement, GM and Clean have the same quality.
6.ZF Royal Oak 15400
For the best replica 15400, I recommend three watch factories, they are JF, ZF and APSF, their quality is very good and very close. Among them, people seem more willing to buy the 15400 from ZF. But the 15400 from these three factories are all good. APSF has their own custom-made 3120 movement and right case thickness, ZF has upgraded this watch to V2 edition, and they just made some imporvements on the watch including changing the position of the balance wheel to make the movement look more accurate, while JF’s 15400 has the best bracelet finish. Every factory has their own advantages, it depens on which part you care most when deciding to buy a replica.
7.ZF Nautilus Moon Phase 5712
This is the only top quality replica Patek Philippe Nautilus with complicated functions in our market. Other Nautilus with complications do not have super replicas. For this Nautilus Moon Phase 5712, I only recommend two factories, GRF and ZF. Perhaps you did not find “ZF 5712” on some dealers’ website, but will see a 5712 under PPF’s name, let me tell you, PPF made this watch before, now they do not make, ZF has taken over PPF’s production of this watch.
8.Clean Datejust II Green Rome
Before, VS factory made the best Datejust II, but VS can not offer us Datejust watches even they came back in last month, I think the Datejust watches from VS will still be not available in a short period, maybe will be in stock in the second half year of 2022. Now, about the best replicas of Datejust II, I recommend two factories, GM and Clean. Both can offer the best Clone 3235 movement, both use 904L stainless steel. For this Datejust II with green rome markers, Clean sells it at a higher price than GM, most people think the same product sold at a higher price must have a better quality.
9.ORF Seamaster No Time to Die
When VS factory was closed and could not offer watches during the whole 2021, ORF appeared and published several Seamaster replica watches, fortunately the quality is good, this is very lucky. Among these Seamaster watches from ORF, the best-selling one is this 007 No Time to Die limited edition, ORF installed a clone 8806 movment and adopted titanium as case material, ORF shipped the watch with one extra nato band for free. When VS factory came back in the beginning of 2022, ORF lowered the price of this watch.
10.3KF Nautilus 5711 Green
The green Nautilus 5711 must be one of the most popular new models published in 2021. Both PPF and 3KF make the replica 5711 with green dial, actually the Nautilus 5711 with tiffany blue dial is also as popular as this one. Both PPF and 3KF make this green Nautilus with the same quality, because of its super clone PP 324 movement, 3KF has a more accurate case thickness, which is 8.3mm. By the way, the latest version of Nautilus 5711 green dial from 3KF has come to V2.
Vintage Rolex watches are attractive to many people, a lot of readers here asked me if there are top quality replicas of vintage Rolex watches, like Submariner, GMT-Master II and Daytona, unfortunately I said no, there are indeed some replicas of vintage Rolex watches in our market, which are made by some unknown factories, JK is one of them, but I can not say their quality is top, especially when being compared with those watches made by big factories like ARF, ZF, Clean, GMF, etc., the quality of these vintage Rolexs is only in middle level.
When I firstly started this blog to introduce replica watches, I posted several replicas of Rolex Daytona Paul Newman watches, they attracted some people to order, their quality is just so so. And there are a lot of replicas of vintage Rolex Submariner watches in our market, many styles with different types of band, which offer a lot of choices and fun for the wearers, the quality of vintage Rolex Submariner is also higher than that of Rolex Daytona Paul Newman. I know it is very hard for you guys to find a supplier who offers top quality vintage Rolex, actually this is also very hard for me to find in our watch market, but I will absolutely check every watch store here in my spare time, to find some suppliers that offer good vintage Rolex Daytona or Submariner.
This Rolex Daytona Paul Newman I am going to introduce today has a high quality, because its case finish and movement are much better than those Paul Newman Daytona we saw before, especially its movement, it is Noob’s 4130, which greatly improves the inner quality of this replica watch, and also reduces the daily inaccuracy, the power reserve has been enhanced. The finish on case and bracelet belongs to top level, I saw the finish on previous Daytona Paul Newman sold before, it is not as good as this one, this Daytona Paul Newman has a much better finish. So, good finish and best 4130 movement also increase the price, this Paul Newman has a very high price.
This is a custom-made Daytona Paul Newman, you will know it is not a traditional vintage Daytona Paul Newman from the printing “BLAKEN” on the dial. I agree, this Daytona Paul Newman has completely lost its retro flavor, even it has a higher quality finish on case and bracelet, and also a superior movement, but I think its modern finish on case and bracelet has completely abandoned the traditional retro charm of vintage Paul Newman Daytona, I do not like this watch. The case, black bezel and clasp design, they are not like the traditional Paul Newman model, more modern design elements were added on this watch. So, if you are looking for a top quality Daytona replica watch with a Paul Newman dial, this watch is a good choice. If you are looking for a real vintage Paul Newman Daytona with every retro design, this is not the right watch.
