In October, there are some new factories appeared in our market, the most popular one is the Gold Factory, which makes Daytona with improved weight, actually before Gold Factory, we have heard that VS opened a new branch named TED to make the 42mm YachtMaster with improved weight. We know genuine Rolex watches are made with solid platinum, yellow gold or rose gold, so these Rolex replicas, whether made by Clean or VS, always have a ligher weight than the genuines, so Gold Factory and TED tried their best to increase the weight of the replica Rolex watches to make them have a closer weight to genuine, Gold Factory now has made a lot of Daytona replicas in this type, they are very popular in the market, I think they will gain a great success in this field.
Now if you ask me which factory makes the best Daytona and which factory occupies the largest market share of replica Rolex, I will say it is Clean, their Rolex replicas are really being sold very well, especially the Daytona and GMT-Master II, they face no competitors or I could say Clean has beaten all competitors. However, a problem shows up, that is Clean won’t often improves the details of their watches like before, after all they have achieved such a great success, but as customers, we want the replicas to be perfect, so I think the appearance of these new Daytonas made by Gold Factory with improved weight will push Clean to upgrade their watches continuously, otherwise their market share will be slowly eroded by Gold Factory, because Gold really solve a big problem.
In one of my previous posts, I mentioned that GF has bee closed due to the raid, now this factory back to the business one week ago, they have a new name, which is called GO, they usually released watches once every five days.
The last news is about APS factory, they also start to add weight on their Daytona and AP 15400. APS factory started to make Daytona watches about two months ago, but this project has failed, nobody has bought their Daytona in the last two months, so they improved the weight, but I do not think they will get a good result, because Dandong 4130 movement has been tested and proven to be very stable and reliable, the Shanghai 4130 which APS Daytona uses still not recognized by us. However, at the same time APS factory also published the AP 15400 with improved weight, but I think they will succeed in AP. In the past, this replica AP 15400 with leather band is only 103 grams, after being added with weight, the entire replica watch is about 140 grams, you know the genuine watch is more than 150 grams, but less than 160 grams. How did APS factory add weight on this AP? They added tungsten steel in case and case back.
Besides 15400 and 15500, the model ROO Diver 15707 is also one of the best-selling replica APs in the past years. J12 made the best replica AP 15707 in the past, if you still have one AP replica made by J12 factory, then you are very lucky, because this factory has been closed for years, and you can not find any other replica watches that have the same quality case and bracelet as J12. Just months ago, another factory named IP published the replicas of AP Diver 15707, the finish is ok, but not as good as the ones made by J12, I do not recommend. But this new AP 15707 made by APS factory is good, I recommend, now it should be the best one in our market.
APS factory has been manufacturing replicas of Audemars Piguet for years, we know their 15400 and 15500, but few people know the clone 3120 movement used by Z Factory is also developed by APS factory, and the movement 52010 used in the ZF’s Portuguese 7 Days is also from APS, that’s true, just few people mention this. So today, you know that APS has really made a big contribution to this industry.
The new 15707 from APS has two models available now, one is black, the other is white, both are made with real ceramic and use the latest super clone 3120 movement. On the black 15707, you can see obvious brushing on the ceramic case and bezel, which features high-glossy polished screws in contrast. The case finish is good, but still can not compare that of J12 AP, the case is exactly 1:1 cloned, but still a little thicker than the case of genuine watch, because it is solid ceramic, the watch feels very heavy. There is a crown at 10 o’clock, when you rotate it, the inner diving bezel will move. The crown at 3 o’clock can be used for time and date adjustment.
The dial is ok, the biggest difference lies in the lattices, whose size and spacing are different from genuine. Til today, the lattices on AP replicas, which factory makes closest to genuine, it is ZF, but in subtle detail, there is still difference if you compare genuine watch and the replica carefully. The lume is strong, in order to last as long as the dial lume on genuine watch, please make your replica watch absorb enough sun light during the day.
The replica watch is equipped with a clone 3120 automatic movement, which is the best 3120 in our market, the movement has been improved two times by APS factory. The movement also used in the ZF or APS 15400, it is very accurate and stable, no people have complained APS 15400 due to the quality of the movement.
This is a custom-made Audemars Piguet watch that features the classic octagonal bezel of Royal Oak, many people call it “Iron Man”, its entire body is made with stainless steel, it is a whole piece of metal, no other material. The dial is also stainless steel, without hour markers, there are only hands and a date window at 3 o’clock, it looks very clean and just in line with the “Iron Man” style which the whole watch wants to present. I am not sure which company makes this custom-made AP Royal Oak, but some people absolutely wants to try with this fresh face.
This time APS factory finally released a new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica watch before ZF, I hope they can be like this every time in next years and surpass ZF in the field of making replicas of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. APS factory has the potential to be the number 1 in making replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches such as 15400 and 15500, these two models occupy a large market share of the replica Audemars Piguet, the movement now becomes the biggest advantage of APS factory, there 3120 movement used in the Royal Oak 15400 is considered to be the best clone 3120 movement in our market, better than the ZF 3120, now just need to continue to improve the case and bracelet finish, then APS will be the leader of the market, just like JF, which has been the boss of replica Audemars Piguet watches for more than 10 years. We all hope that APS can be the boss in the field of Audemars Piguet, so that customers won’t be confused when picking up the best replicas of Audemars Piguet.
No need to talk how high quality the case and bracelet are completed in, like other stainless steel Royal Oak Audemars Piguet replica watches, this “Iron Man” also feels heavy on hand, the polygonal steel bezel is installed correctly and fits the case very well. There is one way to quickly know whether the finish on the case and bracelet is good or not, just use your hands to feel the whole watch, especially each edge or corner on the case and bracelet, usually big factories will finish these subtle places very well, you won’t have any scratch feeling. The replica AP Royal Oak “Iron Man”, APS factory installs a super clone 3120 automatic movement inside, it is the best clone 3120 calibre in our market, even the 3120 from ZF can not compare with it, it is easy for you judge if it is a super clone movement, there is a display window from the back, where you can see each component. This 3120 developed by APS factory is not simply based on Miyota 9015 and being added with extra decorated plates, it is totally not, but a better version.
About Royal Oak Diver watch replica, it was very popular in the past, now its popularity has dropped a lot, whether Royal Oak Diver model 15703 or 15710, JF made the best replicas of them in the past, they have upgraded them to the latest V10 edition, with the closure of JF manufacturer, super clones of 15710 and 15703 have been unavailable for a long time til ZF started to make the replicas, but it seems like people have more recognition of the other Royal Oak watches from ZF such as 15400 and 15500. Fortunately APS factory becomes more powerful, after JF, APS now becomes the only one factory that has some ability to research and develop better movements for AP replicas, the 3120 movement from APS now is the best clone 3120 movement used in their Royal Oak 15400, besides, APS factory published the V2 edition of replica 15710 in July, this is a good news for us, I think that’s the only super clone 15710 in our market.
Now, back to the new Royal Oak Diver watch 15720, both ZF and APS do not make the replica 15720, now if you want to get a good replica 15720, there are two options, BF and IPF, between the two, IPF is better. The photos I shared in this post are from IPF. About this factory, I do not know the meaning of its name “IP”. The 15720 replica from IPF has four color options, black, grey, green and blue, they all good, especially when I see its movement that is modified on basis of Japanese Miyota 9015, I think the quality of the replica won’t be bad. IP factory makes the 15720 with solid stainless steel that is brushed, the case has a diameter of 42mm and thickness is up to 14.2mm. The black bezel uses ceramic material, which is vertically brushed on the front, while being polished on the edge of the bezel. The case of AP is the most angular one I have ever seen, it is difficult to be replicated especially when needed to be done 1:1 as original, the big AP case, if not finished well, it is easy to notice the difference, I really like the case on AP made by JF, they always made the most beautiful case before.
The dial layout looks more compact than that of 15710, actually I like the dial style of 15710 more. On the dial of 15720, the hour markers become wider, but can be applied with more luminous material, so the dial has a stronger lume in dark conditions, the inner bezel features a yellow diving stripe with yellow numeral markers, this also enhances the readability of the black dial. About the movement you see through the crystal back, there are golden engravings on the plates and a big brand AP logo on the skeleton rotor, IP factory spent some time and effort to modify the movement and it is a good clone 4308, the movement is very stable and will have few issues when you wear the watch, but there is still a big gap between this clone 4308 and a super clone one. I think APS and ZF will make replica 15720 in future, but not in 2022, perhaps in the second half year of 2023.
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.
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 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.
Royal Oak 15400 is one of the best-selling Audemars Piguet replica watches here, it is a very classic model, many people consider such an entry-level model when they are going to choose their first replica watch. About 15400, it is also one of the replica watches that is closest to genuine, I think it should be on the list of top ten replica watches. Three big factories made the replica of Royal Oak 15400 before, they are JF, ZF and OMF, actually they all made top quality 15400 replicas, but nowadays because of the raid, JF is closed now, ZF can not release their stocks in time, while the 15400 from OMF is not too good, so, under this situation, some factories seized the opportunity and want to make a big deal. They want to become one of these super watch manufacturers.
Today, I want to introduce the 15400 replica made by another factory that is called APS. This factory is not well known in this industry, but did indeed make some top quality Audemars Piguet Perpetual Calendar replica watches which I have introduced one on my blog. This time, the 15400 replica from APS attracted a lot of attention from watch fans because it uses a new clone 3120 movement.
The 15400 replica from APS has the most correct case profile, it is 41mm in diameter and measured to be 9.8mm in thickness, the case thickness is the same as that of genuine watch. APS factory claimed that their 15400 replica is the only version in the market whose components of the case can be interchanged with genuine watch. The finish on the case and bracelet is in top level quality, the chamfering on case and lugs is as good as that on previous AP replicas made by JF.
About the 15400 replica from APS, besides the correct case thickness, another two big improvements lie in its blue dial and movement. First, the blue dial on this replica does not have color difference now, the small grids on the dial look more three-dimensional, each has the same height as that of genuine watch. More important, the movement inside is a super clone 3120 movement, it is the first clone 3120 automatic movement that is independently developed in our market, the decoration on the rotor and base plate look very close to genuine AP 3120 movement, by the way, this replica 15400 from APS is not available on these TD sites, but it is already available from the factory.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph has been available for some time, it indeed attracted a lot of attention since its release, featuring the same strong and robust Royal Oak case and bezel, the new Royal Oak Chronograph seems to have a more reasonable dial layout than the Royal Oak Offshore Chrono. At the same time, about its replicas, there are two factories that are making them, BF and OMF, both make good clones, but they are all different from genuine watches, that’s the reason why Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph replica is still not popular even if the need for its genuine watch is big, and many watch fans want this watch.
Because BF version of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph has a wrong dial design, its subdial has a wrong position on the dial, the mistake looks so obvious that you will recognize it is a fake easily. While the OM version is also not perfect, although its dial has a correct design, each subdial has a right position on the dial, but two of the small dials are not working, one is at 3:00 and the other is at 9:00, the small hand on these two subdials is fixed, while genuine watch’s works for minute and hour chronograph.
OM is a big factory, it was very famous before, especially during the period when their Omega Speedmaster Chrono replica watches were popular at home and abroad. Now, because of the pandemic and raid, the business of OM factory is affected, they do not usually publish new replica watches and improve the technology. Back to the replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph from OM, the factory sells this watch at a high price, over 500 USD, this is not a high price for a very good replica watch, but many clients will think it is too high for a not perfect watch. Just like the Daytona from AR factory, it is a good clone, but with false chrono, so when being compared with NOob Daytona, many customers would rather to pay more to get a perfect replica Rolex Daytona from Noob. This is the same situation for OM Audemear Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph, I did not say their quality is not good, but everyone seems not to accept such an imperfection.
Is OM factory able to make a better replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph with working minute-chronograph counter and hour-chronograph counter? I think yes, but they will not have a plan to develop a new movement at this stage.
Movement: Asia 7750 Automatic Chronograph, decorated base plate and auto rotor like genuine AP 2385 Case: 41mm*15mm, 316F Stainless Steel Bezel: 316F Stainless Steel Crystal: Sapphire Dial: Checkered Dial with SuperLume on Hour Markers and Hands Bracelet: 316F Stainless Steel with Deployant Clasp Water Resistant: 30m, claimed by the factory

Now, there are not too many new models in our market, because of the raid, Noob will not provide watches any more, which means one factory that can offer the best Rolex Daytona, Submariner and GMT-Master II will disappear, you guys lost a very valuable watch resource. However, currently in watch market, no other factory can replace Noob’s position, although Clean factory claimed that they will offer top quality replicas of GMT-Master II and Submariner one month ago, but it is very slow for them to release their watches, I ordered a GMT-Master from Clean factory several weeks ago, and it still have not arrived, maybe it is normal during this special situation. Among these big watches factories, the only one that can keep its previous delivery speed is ZF, once you place an order from ZF, they usually deliver the watch within 3 days.
Today, the watch I am going to show you with pictures is exactly made by ZF, it is an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15500, not in silver stainless steel, but in DLC black outlook, the watch is totally in black color, I do not like this style, it is a better watch for a tough guy, for a stainless steel Royal Oak 15500, I still think it is too big for me. Perhaps some people like such type of DLC black watches, just like they asked me a lot about the Submariner PVD black models before. The DLC coating is thick, I think it won’t fade easily.
The DLC version of Royal Oak 15500 has four models, which are different from each other in dial color, there are black, white, blue and gray, I do not like them all, but I must say their quality is very good, you can always believe in the quality of replica watches from ZF, currently their watches represent the highest watch-making technology in the entire watch market.
Here is specification:
Movement: Super Clone 4302, Based on Japanese Miyota 9015 Automatic Case: 41mm*11mm, Solid 316F Stainless Steel with DLC Black Coating Crystal: Sapphire with AR Coating Dial: Black Checkered Dial with Stick Hour Markers Bracelet: Solid 316F Stainless Steel with DLC Black Coating Water Resistant: 30m
