C+ Factory V3 Rolex Pepsi GMT

I would not have expected that C+ factory will survive in the market for such a long time, it seems like a lot of people are buying from them. Sometimes if ordering from Clean factory takes long, som people will turn to buy from C+ factory, which always have stocks for many Rolex watches and won’t wait for too long. Most importantly, their quality is very close to that of Rolex made by Clean. I think the only difference lies in the movement, take this Rolex Pepsi GMT for example, Clean uses Dandong 3285 movement, while C+ uses Shanghai 3285. In the past, I thought Shanghai 3285 was not good, but it is also a good movement, many factories are using this movement and has been tested to be very stable. The power reserve is not as long as Dandong 3285.

C+ Pepsi Rolex GMT is a perfect alternative to Clean Rolex Pepsi GMT, Clean published the V3 edition in last year, and now C+ also uses the same ceramic bezel on their V3 edition. C+ sells the watch at a much affordable price. I have a complaint on Clean factory, they have published several editions of this replica in the market, including V1, V2, V2s, V3, every time they published the new version, they will increased its price, that’s not good, and therefore there are a lot of different versions in the market, customers are confused, they do not know which edition is the best. Some said V3 is the best, but recently Clean released V2+ edition that is improved upon V2, and they said V2+ has the closest bezel color to genuine watch, at least many reviewers have confirmed. What can I say? I am also a bit confused. If you are really going to buy V2+ edition, will the dealer send you the correct one? You need to consider a lot of things for buying just a replica.

QF Replica Rolex Daytona 126506 Ice Blue Daytona Available

I felt so happy when I firstly saw this replica coming out from our market, but then a bit disappointed about the watch because it is not made by Clean factory. This is a new Daytona replica watch with a see-through crystal back, many people are expecting this watch, they are expecting a super clone, not this one from QF that is not a good replica but sold at a very high price. I did not hear QF factory before, some reviews saying they specilize in manufacturing replica Rolex watches with increased weight, this Daytona from them has a weight more than 177 grams. However, I do not suggest you guys buy this Daytona from QF, it is not a super clone because of its movement.

I did not see genuine Daytona 126506 watch and can not compare the case shape and dial details between it and this replica, but I must say the movement is a big flaw on the replica. QF claims that they use Dandong 4130 movement in this replica Daytona, but this is not the same Dandong 4130 as the one used by Clean Daytona. The movement in this QF Daytona is uni-directional winding, while the Dandong 4130 in Clean Daytona is bi-directional winding, two different movements, the one used by QF is not good, but QF still selling this replica Daytona at the same or even a higher price than the Daytona from Clean, that’s not fair. So currently do not buy this Daytona from QF, you can wait, I think Clean will publish it soon.

About GF

There are not too many stories about GF, but there is one thing I am very sure about is that GF does not have a strong background like ZF and they also do not make too many replica watches.

In my memory, GF was forced to be closed twice during the previous raid, and during the raid in last year, GF suffered a big loss, we thought they would be closed forever, but they came back in the end of 2023, with a new name “GO”.

The most important thing is GF makes really good quality replica Breitling watches and the Jaeger LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moonphase. The best replica Breitling watches in our market are coming from GF before their closing last year, I think they still offer Breitling replicas for customers after coming back, and I have not heard that any other factories make better Breitlings than GF.

Replica Breitling Avenger BlackBird

For many Breitling replica watches from GF, I mostly recommend Avenger BlackBird and Superocen Heritage, these two watches are the best replica Breitling watches in our market. About GF Avenger BlackBird, its latest version has come to V4, the case is completely made with titanium material, the watch is equipped with an Asia clone ETA 2824 movement, actually the movement is also called Sea-gull 2824 by some people. The Superocean Heritage also uses Sea-gull 2824 and has a ceramic bezel, the watch looks really great. Upon the V2 edition, GF made some improvements on the V4 edition of Avenger BlackBird, but some persons said they did not make changes just raised the price, whatever, GF claims it is V4.

Replica Breitling Superocean Heritage Black

Another replica watch highly recommended from GF is the Jaeger LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon Phase, the version that comes with the movement based on Miyota 9015. Together with Avenger BlackBird, both are the flagship models from GF. There is an interesting story about the JL Master Ultra Thin Moon Phase watch of GF, in the past, they always used Miyota 9015 modified movement on this watch, but some day AZ factory developed the clone 925 and introduced it to GF, after they installed this movement into their JL moon phase watch, the repairing rate suddenly increased, and they decided to use Miyota 9015 again.

GF is not as popular as VS, Clean and 3K, there are not too many things about them, but if you want a super clone Breitling, just go with them. Unfortunately, I just heard that they stopped accepting any orders, I do not know why, maybe they want to get out of this business.

New Daytona models from Clean factory

Now, all watch factories have been back from new year holiday for several days, just at the end of the holiday, Clean announced the release of four new Daytona replica watches, including 126500LN black and white, 126518LN, 126519LN. In 2023, ZF and AR+ have published the replicas of Daytona 126500LN, perhaps Clean felt the competition from them, actually they are not a threat to Clean because the Daytona from them are not good. Then how about the quality of the four new Daytona from Clean?

I never doubt the quality of Daytonas made by Clean factory, the bezel and dial details are better than other factories even they use the same Dandong 4130 movement. But how about the new Daytona from them? They are also much better than the ones made by ZF and AR+. Compared with ZF, Clean makes correct case shape and dial details, compared with AR+, the Shanghai 4131 movement is much better than the Dandong 4131 which AR+ uses. If you read my another post about the AR+ Daytona, you will know the real movement inside.

In the new Daytona, Clean uses Shanghai 4131 movement inside, it looks like that movement has a better decoration than the Dandong 4130, but its stability still needs time to be tested, after all, Dandong 4130 has been tested to be very stable for years. I heard a rumor that Clean is going to use Shanghai 4130 in their old Daytona models such as 116500, that will be bad if they abandon Dandong 4130. By the way, the ice blue Daytona with see-through crystal back is not available, many clients like this Daytona, but I think it will be available soon.

About ZF

I have introduced the stories and development of some watch factories on my blog, including APS, Clean and 3K, a lot of people read these stories and thought they are interesting.

Clean factory: https://www.susanreviews.com/2024/02/17/the-development-of-clean-factory/
3K factory: https://www.susanreviews.com/2024/02/10/about-3k-factory/
APS factory: https://www.susanreviews.com/2024/01/26/secrets-about-aps-factory/

Today, I will give an introduction of ZF. I have talked some things about ZF in another recent post, it is the relationship between APS and ZF, please read it here, https://www.susanreviews.com/2023/12/23/the-bromance-between-aps-and-zf/. Actually I know more things about Clean, Noob, AR and other factories than ZF, there are not many stories about ZF, in the past, I always thought that ZF is a big factory because they have published replicas involving many brands, but I was wrong, ZF is not big, they are not even a watch manufacturer, they just got replica watches from other factories and put “ZF” sticker on, and then sell to their clients, so I finally understand why the watches from ZF have higher prices than other factories.

Not like the other three factories we talked before, ZF is not a watch manufacturer, however, some watches from ZF are still worth buying.

First, the IWC Big Pilot, ZF bought the watches from AZ and changed with a better dial, price is a little higher than AZ Big Pilot. Worth buying.

ZF Big Pilot

Second, the IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve, this watch from ZF is equipped with a custom-made 52010 movement, which was developed by APS and is the first generation of custom-made movements in this industry, that movement has about 3-day power reserve. ZF also changed with a better dial on the Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve, and this watch made ZF well-known all over the world. It is worth buying.

ZF Portuguese 7 Days

Third, Tudor replica watches from ZF all have a great quality, they are worth buying.

ZF Tudor

Fourth, about AP Royal Oak 15400 and 15500, I always recommend ZF, but now my thought changed, you can directly buy from APS factory, because ZF also got these two models from APS, but sell them at a higher price.

Sixth, it is Patek Nautilus 5711, ZF makes the best replica in the past before 3K factory developed the super clone 324 movement. Now, besides the blue/grey dial version, the replicas of other Nautilus 5711 models, I suggest you buy from 3K.

Seventh, replica Patek Nautilus 5712, only ZF makes it and this watch is really good and the movement is very stable. Worth buying.

ZF Patek Philippe 5712

Eighth, the last two watches are Franck Muller V45 and Breguet Tradition, these two watches have a very high quality and are worth buying.

The development of Clean factory

I already talked a lot about Clean in my previous reviews of replica watches made by this factory, to know Clean factory better, please read this article.

Before the birth of Clean, the best Submariner replicas were made by Noob and AR, these two factories now have been closed. At that time, the Submariner made by Noob and AR has two big flaws, first, the tone of the bezel markers will fade, second, the green color is not correct. Someone who sold replica watches in the market saw a business opportunity that will earn a lot of money by making a better ceramic bezel for the Submariner. In 2019, he made one green ceramic bezel and sold it under name of “Clean”, immediately the green ceramic bezel became hot in the market, especially among the watch fans who did custom-made jobs, it is the first green ceramic bezel that has the closest green color to gen and has no-fade bezel markers. He earned some money by selling these bezels. At that time, Noob have been selling 4130 Daytona for some time, but their bezel on the Daytona is not very good, so a few months later, Clean made a ceramic bezel for the white Panda Daytona 116500LN. And at the same time, Clean published their first generation of Submariner and sold under name of “ZZF”. At that time, Clean could not compete with Noob and AR in the field of Submariner, later, Noob and AR also developed the ceramic bezel which they claimed won’t fade.

In the end of 2020, Clean announced the release of the GMT-Master replica watches with clone 3186 movement, but they did not sell them until the summer of 2021. In the whole year of 2019, it is the competition of Submariner between Noob, AR and ZZ, later, VS factory also published the Submariner with the latest Dandong 3135 movement, this movement is more stable and has fewer issues than the movement equipped in ZZF Submariner, even the Submariner from VS did not have the same good finish as the Sub from ZZF, especially on the hulk Submariner, the green color on the ceramic bezel is not as good as that on ZZF 116610LV, but with better movement and better quality control as well as higher reputation, VS still beat Clean and became the second big supplier of super clone Rolex Submariner, Noob occupied the biggest market share. Clean’s ZZF Submariner still not hot.

In the development process, Clean updated all their Submariner with the second generation of Shanghai 3135 movement, from that time, in the sales of Submariner, they decided not to use name “ZZF” any more, but use name “Clean” directly. The intense competition between Clean and VS started. During their competition, there was an interesting thing happend, VS found the factory that always supplied ceramic bezel for Clean. Later, VS developed Dandong 3235 movement and firstly equipped in the 42mm YachtMaster, and then equipped it in their 41mm new Submariner and Datejust. After seeing the fast development of VS, Clean took an action and developed a Shanghai 3235 movement, whose decoration is not as beautiful as Dandong 3235 movement of VS, the power reserve of Shanghai 3235 movement is about 45 hours, which is shorter than 72 hours on Dandong 3235 movement. At this time, Noob and AR could not follow the steps of VS and Clean, although they still have a large amount of customers.

In March or April of 2020, I can not remember exactly in which month, Noob and AR were forced to be closed because of the raid, and then VS was also closed. Now only Clean survived. Before this raid, Clean was absolutely not as famous as Noob, AR and VS, but the three actions Clean made next made them become the boss in the market. First, they accepted all orders of Dandong 4130 movement that were only supplied to Noob before, Clean started to sell the Daytona with Dandong 4130 movement in the end of 2021, their Daytona is much better than the one made by Noob before. Second, Clean decided to use the Dandong 3135 movement in their Submariner. From that time, Clean completely beat VS in 40mm Submariner. Third, about in 2022, Clean developed Dandong 3285 movement and continued to improve their GMT-Master replicas. Clean now is the boss in super clone Rolex, and VS can compete with Clean just because they still own the Dandong 3235 movement. Clean made a very quick success, besides the super quality, the luck also played an important role, I explained the “luck” factor in Clean’s development process in another post at https://www.susanreviews.com/2023/09/29/why-did-clean-factory-get-a-success-so-quickly/.

About 3K factory

Like Clean, 3K also does not have a long history in this industry, it has another two names, K3 and BT. Today, I will give a brief introduction of 3K factory.

In 2019, someone in Zhanxi market bought one Cartier Ballon Bleu replica from V6 factory, he was impressed by the quality and decided to make Ballon Bleu Cartier replica watches by himself, finally, the products came out and the quality is very good, the Ballon Bleu made by him has a very close quality to V6, he was smart, put the V6 sticker on each of his watches and then sell under the name of V6, but at a cheaper price, the result is he earned some money.

The super clone 4130 movement that was developed by Noob and a movement factory in Dandong was very popular at that time. He found this movement factory in Dandong and expressed his thought of wanting to develop a clone PP 324 movement. After half one year of researching, the first generation of clone PP 324 movement came out, which was then equipped in Nautilus 5711 and Aquanaut by WY-3K. But these Patek Philippe replicas equipped with the first generation of PP 324 has a few big issues like jumping seconds, date stuck, sudden stop and noisy auto rotor. Because of these serious problems, a lot of Patek watches were overstocked in their warehouse.

In the end of 2020, I do not remember exact time, they decided to re-study the PP 324 and wanted to solve these issues, then finally the second generation of clone PP 324 came out, which is also the final clone 324 movement you see in current 3K Nautilus 5711 and Aquanaut. The new clone 324 solved all movement issues mentioned above and it is more stable than the movement used in PPF Nautilus. Because of this movement, the case of Nautilus 5711 replica from 3K can be reduced to only 8.3mm, which is closest to gen thickness among all replicas. Afterwards, 3K factory continued to update the case shape of the Nautilus 5711, with the promotion of watch fans who did custom-made works on replica watches, the 3K Nautilus became popular quickly, and now more people are like to buy Nautilus 5711 replica from 3K, other than from PPF, except the blue/gray dial version.

Along with the closure of V6, 3K gained a large portion of the market that belonged to V6 before, then they started to compete with AF in the field of Ballon Bleu. And a branch of 3K, which was called K3, specialized in making ladies Cartier Ballon Bleu.

BT, which is another branch of 3K, makes good quality replicas of Rolex Daytona. Clean is not the only one factory that owns super clone 4130 movement developed by a movement factory in Dandong, BT and New Noob also has it. After the release of Daytona 116500LN by Clean, BT also published the replica Rolex Daytona 116500 white and black models, later Clean made several improvements on the Daytona bezel and dial, but BT also did, so I think the 116500LN Daytona from BT is also very good. Perhaps they wanted to beat Clean so urgently, so next BT published a series of Daytona models earlier than Clean, but the finish is not as good as the first two Daytona 116500LN watches they made before. Next Clean also published a lot of Daytona watches including the yellow gold one and white gold one with rubber band, which have a better quality than BT, so in the competition of Daytona between Clean and BT, BT is gradually at a disadvantage. However, their Daytona 116500LN, full stainless steel Daytona and ice blue Daytona are still worth buying.

This is the story about 3K factory.

V9 Factory Replica Vacheron Constantin Historiques 222 Yellow Gold Watch

This is the latest replica watch from V9 factory, it is a Vacheron Constantin watch from Historiques collection, reference is 222. The watch has a full yellow gold tone and has some retro flavor, I like it very much.

There are not too many super clone Vacheron Constantin watches in our market, I only recommend three models, Overseas 4500V made by ZF, Overseas Ultra-thin 2000V made by XF and 6000V tourbillon made by BBR, they have a very good quality and also the VC replica watches people mostly bought.

There are no such type of replica Vacheron Constantin watches like this Historiques 222 that has a full yellow gold tone, I was deeply attracted by its design when I got this watch yesterday night, it has a sporty shape but with some retro design features. About factory V9, there is little information about it online, I remember they makd some IWC replicas with complication functions before. This Vacheron Constantin 222 replica has a 37mm case diameter, the case is measured to be about 8.5mm in thickness. Like many replicas made by V9 in the past, this Vacheron Constantin replica also has a quality that beyond middle level but not reach the highest quality, I do not think it is a super clone.

The price of this Vacheron Constantin replica is a little high sold by V9, now only V9 makes this replica and people who like VC watches that look a bit vintage will probably consider it, the watch has an iconic Maltese cross at the 5 o’clock position on the yellow gold case, crafted from polished stainless steel. The polishing on the Maltese cross does not look too obvious, I think it should look more glossy. The brushed round bezel has small semicircular grooves on the edge, the groove looks a little smaller than the one on the genuine watch. The bracelet is perfectly integrated with the case into one piece. The yellow gold tone on the dial is perfectly in line with the color on the case and bracelet.

This replica VC Historiques watch is worth purchasing because V9 adopts a Miyota 9015 movement, where you can see it through the crystal back. V9 added the decorated plates on basis of the original Miyota 9015 movement, the auto rotor is also decorated to look closer to the calibre on genuine Vacheron Constantin watch. I think you already know this movement has been widely used in replica watches because of its good stability and accuracy.

Secrets about APS factory

In one of my articles published in the end of last year, I talked about the friendship between ZF and APS, today, more interesting stores about APS factory will be shared.

First, have you heard of BF? I thought it was a new factory when their AP ROO Diver 15710 and 15720 firstly appeared in the market in 2021, but BF has been in the market for more than 5 years, even has a much longer history than APS, there is a relationship between APS and BF. Their bosses are cousins. BF introduced APS into this industry.

The relationship between ZF and APS is very solid, we talked about this in the article https://www.susanreviews.com/2023/12/23/the-bromance-between-aps-and-zf/. In the early time when APS just entered this market, almost all replica watches were using Asia clone ETA 2824 and 2836 movements, they wanted to use better movements to create better replica watches, so they focused on researching and developing movements at the beginning, absolutely the new movement development process is mainly completed by Chinese traditional movement factories. Take the Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve as an example, the earlier model with old movement looks werid, check the picture below.

Old Portuguese
The Portuguese with old movement

Then APS cooperated with a movement factory in Dandong and developed a new movement, after being installed, the Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve below with new movement looks very nice. At that time, APS only sold this Portuguese 52010 movement to ZF. But one or two years later, APS realized that they could not earn enough money by only developing and selling movements to other factories, then they started to sell the Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve replica watches by themselves, with the latest 52010 movement they owned, but under another name “AZ”, someone also call it AZF, so, APS and AZ are actually the same team.

New Portuguese
The Portguese with new movement from APS

The clone IW52010 is a great success for APS, they wanted to develop another great movement now, especially after seeing the release of Dandong 4130 movement by Noob, APS took the action immediately. They also cooperated with Dandong and developed two movements in 2020, one is JL925 for the Jaeger LeCoultre Master Moonphase, the other is JL938 for the Jaeger LeCoultre Reserve De Marche. The first batch of clone JL925 movement was sold to YL factory, later APS also equipped JL925 in their replicas of JL Master Ultra Thin Moonphase and sold under name of “AZ”. Later this clone JL925 movement was also supplied to ZF and GF two factories.

Next, it is the 3120 movement used in 15400. We know 3120 was developed by JF before, but JF was closed, later the 3120 was improved by a movement factory in Shanghai. Then APS seized the opportunity and accepted all 3120 movements from Shanghai. Now we can see the 3120 in Royal Oak 15400 made by APS is very stable. Later APS offered a small amount of 3120 movement to ZF. And then APS and this movement factory in Shanghai developed the 4302 movement together, we can see 4302 is now used in Royal Oak 15500 made by ZF and APS. The last movement from APS I want to mention here is the 5134 used in Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar 26574, this movement is also very stable, for AP 26574 replicas, I still recommend the ones made by APS, which are more stable than those ones just published by BBR a few weeks ago.

Which factory makes the best gold Daytona 116518 replica?

Gold Daytona Comparison BT vs Clean
BT Daytona Dial
Clean Daytona Dial

About the gold Daytona 116518, there are several factories that are making its super clone, they are Clean, BT, Gold, APS, QF, New Noob, among these factories, maybe you are more familiar with Clean and BT, which are more mentioned when people talking about super clone Daytona. Gold and APS also make good quality Daytona replicas with increased weight, but they are using Shanghai 4130 movement, which is not as good as the Dandong 4130 equipped in Daytona made by Clean and BT. About QF, I heard very little about this factory, and about New Noob, I have introduced it in one of my articles before. Currently I only suggest you buy Daytona from Clean and BT. Many Franken watches are also customized on basis of the Daytona from them.

The gold Daytona 116518 is a very popular replica, both Clean and BT are make this model and form a direct competition, which factory makes the best one? I though BT makes this watch better before, but after watching a lot of video reviews on this replica watch, I changed my mind, Clean version is better, please buy with Clean.

Look at the pictures in the beginning of this article, do you know which one is from Clean?

First, I want to say the replica made by both Clean and BT has flaws if you compare them with genuine watch. The case has color difference, genuine watch uses real 18K yellow gold, the replica only has a layer of gold plating on the case, the gold tone on the replica looks brighter and more yellowish. The weight difference also exists, the replica is about 35 grams lighter than the genuine watch. The dial printings on genuine watch are better, especially the red “DAYTONA”, which has a thicker font on the genuine watch. I have seen the movement comparison between them and genuine, the decoration on genuine Rolex 4130 movement is better, and genuine Rolex 4130 movement has one feature that could not be found on Dandong 4130.

BT makes 116518 earlier than Clean, now the latest version comes to V2, on the V1, the gold on the case and dial is too yellow, BT has made the changes on the V2 edition, now the gold tone is very close to that on Clean. However, the dial color is still a little yellow. The dial color on Clean is closer to genuine, I think this is the biggest difference between BT and Clean. Which one will you choose if I put them together. Many videos reviews said the one made by Clean is the ultimate version, so I also recommend Clean even it has a higher price.

Except the dial color, I can not find other differences, can you? Which one is Clean and which one is from BT? Please comment below and share your opinions about the two replicas.
