Nautilus 5712 is a very controversial replica watch in this field, it has many things to talk about, people also have different opinions on whether this replica watch is worth buying or not. Years ago, ZF published the first replica Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712 watch that is made with stainless steel and has a blue dial, but the power reserve on that replica is fake, later ZF updated the 5712 with a new better clone 240 movement that features a real power reserve, it is the V2 edition, ZF sold it at a very high price.
About this rose gold Nautilus 5712r, actually ZF published the V1 edition in September, now just in this week, ZF upgraded this replica watch to V2, it now has become a better replica, but in my opinion, this rose gold 5712r is not a super clone, the stainless steel Nautilus 5712 with blue dial is a super clone, but this rose gold model has some big differences when being compared with the genuine watch.
I checked the official website of Patek Philippe and found this rose gold Nautilus 5712r, the dial of the genuine watch is in brown color that exactly matches its rose gold tone, while on the replica, the dial color does not look brown but more like grey, this is a big difference, very easy to tell when you wearing this replica among your friends. Another big difference lies in its clasp, whose structure is different from that of genuine. The third big flaw is the engravings on the movement plate do not look that three-dimensional on the genuine. These three differences are very obvious and this is also the reason I do not suggest you buy this replica at the moment.
The replica watch has some selling points, its super clone 240 movement, correct case shape with similar case thickness, correct functions like genuine watch. Well, we still expect that ZF can correct its dial color soon, otherwise no person wants to buy this watch. Many dealers in our market are doing custom-made jobs on the replica watch, like replacing the imperfect dial or bezel with genuine parts, they also see the imperfections on this rose gold replica 5712r and some of them have made modifications on the replica, like the one I show below, this replica 5712r has been replaced with SW’s dial and hands, the moon phase has also been replaced with the moon phase of VVS, the SW and VVS here are two factories that make watch parts in our market. The molder also uses a solid rose gold on this replica watch. However, after being molded, the watch is very expensive.
By the way, even the V2 has come out, but ZF is still selling the V1 edition of the 5712r, it is easy to tell whether the 5712 you have bought is V2 or V1, just check the position of the movement rotor, on V2, it is placed at 9 o’clock, just in the opposite direction of the crown.

First, the V2 edition of Nautilus 5712 made by PPF can be sold separately, it is not easy for PPF to make such a decision. When they firstly unveiled the V2 edition of Nautilus 5712 in the end of last year, PPF announced that it is bundled with their Submariner, many customers like this watch but can not buy it together with the Submariner. Now in the warehouse of PPF(ZF), there are still a lot of black Submariner and green Submariner, I do not know why PPF changed their mind and accept separate sale of their Nautilus 5712. This is a good news for us, now you can buy the best 5712 Nautilus replica, the V2 was improved and now has a real power reserve indicator.

The other good news from the market is that Clean just unveiled their 3285 movement. Before, Clean only has clone 3186 movement, so in the new GMT-Master II like Sprite, Rootbeer and other GMT with Jubilee bracelet, Clean uses 3186 movement, you can clearly see the golden “3186” engraving on the plate, this is a big fault because it should be “3285” there. It does not matter for some people if you do not tell them about this, but some other persons do care. After the release of 3285 movement, Clean is ready to replace the 3186 in their GMT-Master II watches, that’s a good news, but price will increase a little.
Many people asked me about this Nautilus replica watch in the past months, now it is really in stock. Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712 replica must be one of the best-selling replica Patek watches in the past two years, because of its sports outlook, multi functions and asymmetrical beauty of the dial, many people love it. But on the V1 edition, there is an obvious flaw on the replica, it is the false power reserve indicator. Now on the latest V2 edition that was just published, the power reserve is real, that’s the biggest improvement on the V2 edition.
Actually PPF factory has promoted the V2 edition of Nautilus 5712 replica since April of 2022, but the watch has not been released in the past months, just two or three days ago, the V2 edition finally came out, we have waited for a long time, more than six months.
For the replica Patek Nautilus 5712, whether on the V1 edtion or the latest V2 edition, you may have a question, that’s the watch is made by PPF or ZF? Because some dealers said it is made by PPF, while it saying ZF 5712 on some websites. Actually both are true. ZF and PPF, both factories have the same boss, which also means ZF is the main watch company, they opened a subbranch named PPF to mainly produce Nautilus replicas. Now you understand.
I gave a review on this replica watch before, now I do not want to deeply discuss it any more. On its dial, the V2 has a working power reserve positioned at 10 o’clock and 11 o’clock. Pull out the crown and rotate it to wind the watch, you will find the small hand inside the power reserve indicator slowly move to the far left number “48”, once being fully winded, the hand will stop at 48, PPF also claims that the power reserve of the replica is up to 48 hours. The second thing I want to explain on the replica is its water resistance, do not wear it to swim, take it off, do not try, the watch is expensive. The screw-in crown and screw-down case back have a good waterproofing performance, but there are two holes on the case set with push buttons to adjust moon phase and date, the water may penetrate from these two small holes, so I do not suggest you wear it when swimming.
The V2 Nautilus 5712 is very expensive, ZF does not sell separately, it is bundled with their 40mm Submariner, which means you guys need to buy one extra black Submariner or green hulk from ZF if wanting to get one V2 5712 from them. So, the cost is very high. Why ZF do this? Because they produced too many replicas of 40mm Submariner before and no one wants to buy their Submariner, so they need to clean up stock. You can wait, they will cut the price in future, but I am not sure how long to wait. The good news is that ZF has reduced the price of V1 Nautilus 5712.
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.
