Now, some of you guys have been concerning about one thing in recent months, that is when Noob back to work after their factory was raided two months ago. Fortunately Noob is not destroyed and they have started to provide stocks several days ago, this is a good news for us. But the bad thing is you need to wait a little longer than before if you want to get the ordered watches from them, maybe for some secure reasons.
The second thing I want to announce here is that GMT-Master II made by Noob seems to have technical issues easily. Noob claimed that their GMT-Master replica watches such as 116710BLNR and 116710LN are equipped with Super Clone 3186, which is the movement that features correct hand stack and has the same adjusting way as genuine Rolex 3186 in time, date and GMT. Many people think that this Super Clone 3186 is the best match for 116710LN and 116710BLNR, but I do not think so. Due to the immature technology, the Super Clone 3186 from Noob is not so stable. If you do a busy time, date and GMT adjustment, the movement will easily have some technical issues. Most of you do not know how to fix these issues, and have to send the watch back to the factory to repair, this process will take a long time.
Well, I did not say all Super 3186 116710BLNR and 116710LN are not stable, if you are the lucky one and have told your watch supplier to test the watch before sending, you will get one that could withstand busy crown operation, so that depends on whether your are lucky enough or not.
Noob is not the only one factory that makes good quality GMT-Master II 116710BLNR and 116710LN, GM and BP also make them. Compared with the ones made by Noob, GM’s have price advantage, and this factory has a large stocks, you do not need to wait. If you need a GMT-Master, my advice is do not blindly pursue the one with correct hand stack, the movement stability is more important. Besides, you can speed less than $250 usd on a super quality GMT-Master II replica from GM factory, why still have to wait a long time for Noob to release their stocks?
