This is the second Carbotech watch I have seen in this month. The first is PAM 979, this watch has a reference PAM 1616. Both are the latest Submersible models Panerai published in 2019 SIHH. Now you can find good quality replicas of both in our market, it is really lucky for us. VS is always the first factory to make the replicas once there are new Panerai watches published each year, yes, I admit that VS factory, whose previous name is KW, has a long history in making replicas of Panerai and can always bring us surprise in this field.
Like Submariner 116610LN and Daytona Super Clone 4130 for Noob factory, VS factory also has their own iconic models, such as PAM 441, PAM 438, PAM 382, etc. I think this PAM 1616 will also be on this list.
This replica uses real Carbotech material like genuine PAM 1616. The case is big in 47mm and 17mm thick, but the whole watch does not feel heavy just because it uses this lightweight carbon material. The case, bezel and lugs all have unique prints. The bezel has blue pearl and blue markings between 0 and 15.
Compared with the blue color usage on this PAM 1616, I prefer the white and black on PAM 979. Actually I do not like this style, the blue applied on lume bezel pearl and hour markers and hands makes the watch a bot show off.
On black dial, the hour hand and minute hand are skeleton, there is blue lume coating on the tip. The blue lume coating applied on hour markers and hands is thick and can make them have a long-lasting superlume in the dark. Like genuine PAM 1616, the replica has two different lume light on the dial.
About the movement, it is super clone 4130, I can say it is completely custom made by VS factory, this movement has become the pround of VS factory, with it, all PAMs replicas can completely achieve the full functions of genuine Panerai, including GMT, which works as accurate as genuine, also adjusted like genuine, this is unbelievable.
Summer is coming, it is time to prepare something for a holiday. Absolutely a diver’s watch is a must-have product. To look unique and attract most attention of girls on the beach, man, you must start to get a special diver’s watch that can grab their attention at a glance. So, the Omega Planet Ocean 600m here I am going to review is exactly such a diver’s watch for you. First, the watch is under Omega, which has been very famous in watch world, every one knows this luxury brand watch. Second, the watch has an orange bezel, it also can be fitted with an orange rubber band, so the orange color on the watch can immediately arouse the attention of other people on the beach.
VS made this replica with two versions, the stainless steel model and the one with orange rubber strap. Both have a case diameter of 42mm. The first thing that immediately grabs my eyes is its orange bezel, which is made of alloy metal not ceramic, there are black markers on the orange bezel insert. The orange color of bezel perfectly matches the orange color usage on Arabic numeral hours markers at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock.
I think no need to give a review on the case and bracelet. I have reviewed a lot of replica watches from VS factory, you know, VS is a big factory, it has the same high popularity as Noob and J12 among our watch fans, so, you do not need to ask too much about the case finish, I will tell you, every replica coming from VS factory will be completed in a perfect level in finish, including this Omega watch. You need to buy one to feel the quality by yourself. Sometimes it is useless to see these pictures, just touch and wear the watch.
The dial can glow two lume light, green on minute hand, blue on hour markers, hour hand and the pip of second hand. By the way, the bezel pearl is superlumed green in the dark.
The replica is equipped with a stainless steel bracelet, while it will also come with one pair of orange rubber band for free.

These are my top five best-selling Omega replica watches, maybe you do not agree, but they are indeed sold very well in our market. In this list, there are a lot of models that can not be included because they have been out of stock for a while, some models that were sold well in the past are also not in this top five. So I only introduce the latest popular Omega watches in this top five, hope this guide can help you.
1.Noob Planet Ocean 42mm Liquidmetal
This replica Omega has been popular for many years, it is so classic and a lot of buyers still want it. The latest version has been upgraded to V6 by Noob factory. In my memory, it is also the first Omega replica watch that adopts a liquidmetal bezel in our market. The watch is also one of the most secret weapons of Noob. The dial uses ceramic material like genuine. The watch is equipped with a reliable Asia clone ETA 2892 automatic movement. Now, buy this watch can get one extra pair of black nylon strap for free.
2. VSF Seamaster Diver 300m
This watch is very new, published in 2018. It is loved by many people because of its unique waved dial. The replica Omega Seamaster is made by VS factory, and the latest version has come to be V2. Both dial and bezel use ceramic like genuine watch. There are three types of bands for this replica, stainless steel, nylon and rubber. You can buy the replica with stainless steel bracelet, the factory will send one pair of nylon band to you for free. The movement inside is based on an Asia ETA 2836, VS factory modified it to the look of Omega 8800.
3. OMF Speedmaster Dark Side of The Moon
OM factory makes the best Omega Speedmaster Chrono replica watches. Yes, only OM factory can make it correct. The Clone 9301 movement they developed can achieve a full chronograph function like genuine. I mean the two hands on the subdial at 3 o’clock can work like genuine watch. Please note, the 3:00 subdial has dual chronograph function for minute and hour chronograph. This Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of The Moon replica watch use a full ceramic case, a black nylon band is fitted, for the clasp, you can choose deployant or tang style.
4. VSF Aqua Terra 150m
It is more like a dress watch, not a sports or diving watch. The watch is fitted with a stainless steel bracelet, but VS factory also offers rubber or nylon band for it. The dial has different color options like black, blue, grey, white, ect., but I like this dark blue. The replica Omega Aqua Terra watch has a case diameter of 41mm, its case is brushed, the middle links of the bracelet is polished, which is highly contrasting with the other polished metal part of the watch. VS factory makes the vertical patterns on the dial correct, 100% the same as genuine. All hour markers and hands are fully applied with Swiss lume. By the way, the replica is equipped with VSF custom-made Super Clone 8900 movement, it is not based on any Chinese automatic movement, this Super Clone 8900 is VS factory’s in-house calibre.
5. VSF De Ville Hour Vision
It is very controversial that this Omega De Ville is in this top five list. There are a lot of sports Omega watches that are sold better than this De Ville Hour Vision. Yes, I admit that there are a lot of other best-selling Seamaster watches that are more popular than this De Ville. But in this list, I want to add one new face, we saw too many sports or diver’s watches in normal times. And this Omega De Ville Hour Vision is also the latest addition in our market. The case is made of polished stainless steel and 41mm in diameter. The dial looks large, this is one of the common features for all dress watches, the case part is restricted in structure, so the dial can look larger. Blue dial is elegant and has an elegant outlook. The movement is VSF custom-made super clone 8500, which has been researched and developed by VSF for several years.
After reading this article about top five Omega watches, are you interested in purchasing one of them? Or do you have a top five list in your mind?
Both Noob and V6 factory made this watch, Noob is the earliest factory that researched Asia ETA 6497 movement in our market, and PAM 127 made by Noob is indeed has the Asia 6497 movement that is closest to genuine. Why didn’t I put PAM 111 first? Because the domed sapphire crystal adds points to this watch. Many people are willing to choose PAM 127 as their first Panerai watch also due to its domed crystal face. The watch has a see-through crystal back, but do not worry, this won’t be a big tell for the replica, because the movement has a very close decoration to genuine ETA 6497. Fitted with a brown leather strap, which feels very soft to wear. PAM 127 is absolutely a good combination of classic and vintage.
2. VSF PAM 438
The most popular ceramic Panerai watch in our market. The latest version is the one made by VS factory, with super clone P.9001 automatic movement. Please notice, be sure to choose the one with super clone P.9001 movement, VS factory just developed this movement, it was independently researched by VSF, the movement has the correct balance wheel position at 7 o’clock, so check the movement through crystal back, you won’t find any flaws. PAM 438 is an entire ceramic watch, from case and bracelet, the watch is made of real black ceramic, in brushed finish. Super texture and wearing comfort, the watch will never be out of date.
3. VSF PAM 441
Yes, VS factory almost replicated each Panerai model. They have the most complete collection of replica Panerai watches. PAM 441 is another hot selling ceramic PAM from VSF. Like PAM 438, PAM 441 from VSF is also made of real black ceramic on case, the watch is equipped with super clone P.9001 movement that is independently developed by VSF. It is a real GMT watch, the GMT hand on the dial can work the same way as genuine. By the way, the dial features a Flush Cannon Pinion like genuine. Brown ASSO leather band is distressed and is a perfect match for this brushed black ceramic watch.
4. VSF PAM 382
Is PAM 382 the first Panerai watch made with Bronze material? I think it is. And the replica version from VS factory now is upgraded to V2 edition. ZF factory also made this watch, but because VSF has their own super clone P.9000 installed in this watch, so I think the best PAM 382 is made by VSF. Bronze case and green dial perfectly match with each other, both are the biggest selling points of this watch. When PAM 382 was firstly introduced in our market, it soon became the best-selling diver’s watch at that time. With a distressed brown leather strap, PAM 382 brings a lot of wearing fun for our Panerai fans.
5. Noob PAM 111
The latest PAM 111 from Noob is V5 edition. Some people think that PAM 111 should rank first place in this list, it deserves if it was five years ago. However, PAM 111 is still the first choice for many beginners, due to its simple dial design and functions, the replica watch could be made to be 99% the same as genuine, besides, PAM 111 from Noob factory also has a less repairing rate than other PAMs.
6. VSF PAM 688
PAM 688, also coming from VS factory. The latest version is V2. Upgraded from V1, now the watch has been equipped with a super clone P.9001 movement. Based on V1, PAM 688 V2 has the movement greatly improved. Now you can adjust the date through hour hand only, GMT is 12-hour, not 24. The movement is slimmer, so the whole case looks thinner, more close to genuine case. PAM 688 is also the first Panerai watch I saw, blue dial and blue leather strap, making the watch look fresh among so many black PAMs.
In December, there are a lot of Omega replica watches published in our market, they include Seamaster Commander 007 from UR factory, Seamaster 300m Blue from VS, Planet Ocean Ceramic from VS. These watches are all the latest models in 2018. VS factory mainly produced Panerai replicas in the past, but now they also make some good quality replica Omega watches, maybe they have tasted the sweetness from making the Omega Spectre 007 replica, you know, this watch created a high sales record in 2016. Now, a lot of Omega watches made by VS factory have ranked a high position in sales of replica watches, including this Planet Ocean Deep Black ceramic watch. This Deep Black Planet Ocean is a full ceramic watch, I never saw Omega used ceramic case on their Planet Ocean series, maybe this is the first time. this full ceramic Planet Ocean replica watch is greatly different from other Omega watches.
The case is fully made of black ceramic, it is a pioneering work Omega made in their Planet Ocean. The case is brushed, while the edge of lugs is polished, seeing the side, the case has a graceful arc shape. The bezel uses high grade black ceramic with silver engravings. The case back is see-through sapphire crystal, VS factory developed Omega-patented Naiad Lock system, you only need to rotate the case back a bit to lock it perfectly. Check the case back, there are unique engravings on three lugs.
The dial is black, which is made of real ceramic Zr02, this is the high gloss black dial that is exact 1:1 imitation of original. The dial has a correct hand stack, hour markers and hands have silver edge and are applied with white lume material, the dial has two different lume colors, hour markers and hour hand will emit strong blue light, minute hand will emit strong green light in the dark. On the outer dial, there are 24-hour gmt markers, GMT hand in the center has an orange triangle mark that is also filled with luminescence. This Deep Black Planet Ocean is a GMT watch, if Omega makes a full ceramic Planet Ocean without GMT function, that will be very popular.
The movement is an Asia Clone 8906, which is based on a Chinese automatic movement. The movement looks very close to genuine Omega Cal. 8906, see the decoration on rotor and plate, as well as the 1:1 black balance wheel, they are really very similar to the decoration of Omega 8906.
Here comes the watch specification of the replica.
Movement: Asia Clone 8906 Automatic, Decorated Auto Rotor and Plates to Look Like Genuine Omega 8906 Caliber, with Black Balance Wheel
Case: 45.5mm*17mm, Black Ceramic, Correct Lugs Engravings
Case Back: See-Through Sapphire with Ceramic Naiad Lock System
Crystal: Sapphire with AR Coating
Dial: Real Black Ceramic, High Gloss Black Dial with Silver Hour Markers and Hands, Swiss Blue Lume and Green Lume on Dial
Bracelet: Black Rubber Strap with White Hand Stitching, Black Ceramic Deployant Clasp
Water Resistant: 50m
This replica watch is made by VS factory, which is also known as KW or V6. The watch has a classic design only with two hands, the small second hand is on the subdial at 9 o’clock, date window is positioned at 3 o’clock, main dial is in dark brown color with stick hour markers. Like genuine watch, there is “L SWISS MADE L” printings, the replica is not made of stainless steel, but Titanium, so it looks a little grey in color.
Sapphire crystal is domed, not flat, the crystal features a colorless ar coating, this is the same as genuine.
Titanium case has a refined brushing process, while the bezel is polished. People who are allergy to stainless steel can choose this Titanium watch. The case profile and construction are also the same as original.
Now, I am going to introduce the most important part of the watch, yes, the movement. The PAM 351 replica uses a see-through sapphire crystal case back, some people who want to buy this watch but have a worry about this, because they are afraid of being spotted as wearing a replica watch by checking the movement through the crystal back. However, on this replica, you do not need to worry because VS has replicated the P.9000 so perfect, the movement has correct decoration like PANERAI SEALs, the position of balance wheel is also corrected, so even you check the movement through case back, you can not find the its difference with the genuine.
In the past, most factories used Shanghai 7750 or Sea-gull ST25 as a basic movement to clone Panerai P.9000, however, this Super Clone P.9000 is modified from a Japanese Seiko automatic movement, VS made a modification on its gears, so this clone P.9000 has the same date adjustment and winding as genuine Panerai P.9000.
The dial lume is super, maybe much stronger than the lume of genuine watch. The blue dial lume is also durable because VS uses imported Swiss SuperlumiNova C3 on this sandwiched dial and hands.
Brown leather strap is made of genuine calf skin leather, there is white hand stitching, the Pre-V buckle is a classic feature of Panerai Luminor watch, it is brushed with “PANERAI” deeply engraved. The band is very soft and comfortable to wear.
As an entry-level Panerai watch, this PAM 351 replica watch can fulfill your basic requirement in your daily life. With a self-developed clone P.9000 movement that has been tested for years, the replica watch can work accurately and stably. The brown leather strap makes it look a little luxury, under its sporty appearance, PAM 351 is also an ideal choice for being worn as a dress watch.
