Datejust is an icon of Rolex, when talking about dress watches, Datejust must be in your wishlist, among this collection, there are also a lot of models in different styles to meet people’s various needs. A lot of factories in our market are manufacturing the replicas of Datejust, among them, BP factory has a complete collection of Datejust models, if you can not find the wanted Rolex Datejust model in GM, AR or Noob factory, then you can absolutely get an answer from BP factory. If you want to know which factory makes the best Datejust replica, then my answer is Noob. However, it usually takes a very long time for Noob to release the stocks of their Datejust replicas, their focus is on other Rolex watches like Submariner and GMT-Master. For GM factory, now they have a very large collection of 36mm Datejust, and in my opinion, currently the best quality Datejust II replicas are coming from AR factory, and most popular models you are intereted in are in stock.
Like the two golden models whose photos are shown below, they were just unveiled by AR factory several days ago. If you are preparing a gift for your father in the coming Christmas or Father’s Day in next year, I think a golden Rolex Datejust will be a good choice.
The two golden Datejust II coming from AR factory must be a combination of top quality finish and high stability. First, the finish on case and bracelet must be superior to that of any other factories, I always think that AR factory does the best in case and bracelet finish. The two tone Datejust watches are measured to be 41mm in case diameter, both have an alternating finish of polishing and brushing on the case, both are made with 904L stainless steel. Now, there are three factories that have used 904L stainless steel material in their Datejust II replicas, they are Noob, ARF and GMF, Noob Datejust II replicas are mostly out of stock, about the Datejust II replicas between ARF and GMF, I think ARF Datejust is much better.
The two Datejust II has a same gold tone color, while each has a different decoration. The hour markers on one dial are index that has white luminescence coating, the other dial uses diamond hour markers without lume material usage. Of the two dials, absolutely I prefer the one with index hour markers. The date window has a deep view, the inner beveled edge is made correct by AR factory, date font is also aligned center.
About the bracelet, it is jubilee style and in two tone that exactly matches the color of the case. The bracelet is also made with 904L stainless steel, this five-link bracelet seems to be very popular on Datejust and GMT-Master II in 2019. The middle links are polished, while the links at both sides are brushed, this does not affect the comfort when you wearing this bracelet, because AR factory has paid a great attention in finishing every corner and edge of the bracelet, to guarantee the maximum wearing comfort.
About the movement, it is an Asia ETA 2824-2 automatic, which is very reliable. I opened the case back before, actually AR factory made some decoration on the rotor, which has been skeletonized and has a golden Rolex crown logo being engraved. Currently no factories have installed a clone Rolex movement in this Datejust II, if you are looking for one piece installed with a clone 3235 movement, with the same finish as that of ARF, I just want to say there is no such a replica.
AR factory makes this replica in a high quality, absolutely the price is also much higher than the ones made by other factories, but if you want to get one Datejust II watch for your father that could last for more than five years, with accurate timing each day, you need to buy one like this from a big factory.
