Months ago, ZZ factory published their V2 edition of Submariner 116610LN replica, and they claimed that their Submariner is the best in the market, even better than the Submariner from Noob, because of their high-key promotion, many people abandoned Noob and turned to buy Submariner from ZZ factory, and now, whether Submariner 116610LN or Hulk Green 116610LV, they are all out of stock in ZZ factory, while Noob now is selling their Submariner at a discounted price, this has proven that Submariner from ZZ factory is the best.
Because currently the Submariner watches from ZZ factory are sold out and do not know when they will release their stocks next time, people’s demand for the Submariner 116610LN is large, so about one week ago, two big factories published their replicas of Submariner 116610LN, they are V6 and RXF, actually RXF is another name of XF, do you know XF? It is the factory that makes AP 15202, which is a very popular replica watch in 2020.
Too many factories are making the replicas of Submariner 116610LN, I am counting, actually more than ten factories, so today, I want to make a brief comparison between the Submariner from these factories, not a detailed comparison, just a simple buying guide, to make a summary of the advanges and disadvantages of Submariner in each factory.
Generally speaking, the 116610LN from Noob has many advantages, for example, dial printings, date font, date magnifier on the crystal, etched crown logo in the crystal, on Noob’s 116610LN, these details are all better than the 116610LN of other factories. Besides, the SA3135 movement equipped in Noob Submariner 116610LN uses blue Hairspring, the same as genuine. The updated V10s 116610LN from Noob factory is very perfect now, but it still has one main defect on the bezel, on some pieces, the bezel markers will become dark when you wear the watch after some time, that’s the biggest flaw which Noob factory still has not improved. Certainly, for people who are going to buy a Submariner as their first replica, I still suggest they buy from Noob.
We also call it ZZ factory. The quality of ZZF Submariner 116610LN is very close to that of Noob, there is no big difference between them. The bezel becomes the biggest advantage of ZZF Submariner, especially on its Green Hulk 116610LV, no dark spots could be found on the bezel, it is the bezel that is closest to original. Besides, on ZZF Submariner 116610LN, the bezel markers will not become dark or even black after time goes by. Besides, ZZ factory installs the crystal correctly, the crystal is not too high above the bezel. And maybe the only disadvantage of ZZF Submariner lies in its case and bracelet, whole finish is not as good as that of Noob and ARF. Unfortunately, the price of ZZF Submariner 116610LN is much higher than that of other factories, and usually out of stock.
The Submariner 116610LN from AR factory is also recommended by me, it is very good, in my opinion, has the same quality as Noob and ZZF. ARF 116610LN has one big advantage that other factories does not have, it is the case finish. And AR is the first factory to use 904L stainless steel, the finish on case and bracelet is perfect, other factories can not achieve such quality level. Second, the markers on the bezel are deeper, which look more three-dimensional. AR factory also offers one 3135 movement option for this watch, but the movement does not look the same as genuine Rolex 3135, I think Noob’s is better. And the etched laser crown in the crystal, not as good as Noob’s.
Fourth, RXF and V6F.
Here, the new RXF is also the old XF, the same factory. Why I put RXF and V6F together, both factories published their Submariner 116610LN one week ago, almost announced at the same time, I think the newly released Submariner 116610LN may be developed by them together, and then sold under two factories’ name, actually it is the same watch. RXF Submariner 116610LN is made with 904L stainless steel, they also claimed that their Submariner has been improved in many places such as dial printings, date font, crown position, etc., they listed these updated parts being compared with other factories on a paper that will be shipped with the watch in a box, once you receive the watch, you can read the paper clearly and see if RXF is telling you the truth or just lying. I did not get one Submariner 116610LN from RXF, I do not know the quality, but I think it will not be bad, because XF is a very famous factory too, besides, RXF also promises that they can replace the bezel for free if the watch you received has bezel issues, this sounds very nice. Other factories always charged a lot when need to replace the ceramic bezel. But currently RXF only offers A2824 movement option for their 116610LN.
In conclusion, to buy a replica Submariner 116610LN, those factories above are all good sources. Noob factory is my first recommendation because its reliable quality and current special price. If you are going to buy Green Hulk 116610LV, I only recommend ZZF. About RXF 116610LN, I trust their quality, but still needs time to test, I will tell you in future posts.
