Now I am very sure that VS factory makes the best replica Omega watches, they also have the most complete collection, the last picture shows all Omega models available by VS factory. The development of replica watches industry is rapid in recent two years, better materials and closer movements. So, the prices of these replica watches are much higher than before. However, although some factories now use better materials and movement in their replica watches, they do not produce watches that meet their high prices. Take Noob for example, they always claimed that their watches are closest to genuine, but they made too much modification on the movement and ignored the stability of the original movement, so even the replica watches they produced look very close to genuine, but sometimes they are not stable and easily have issues. Like the GMT-Master from Noob. So, I want to say that sometimes not the most expensive watches are good for you, you need to find the right one.
Back to this VS factory Omega watch. I not not remember that any other factories make good quality replica Omega watches except VS factory. Oh, I almost forgot, Noob made one Omega Planet Ocean Liquidmetal replica watch several years ago, but that’s the only Omega watch they have ever made. Compared with other Omega Planet Ocean, this one has a special bezel that is in black and white color, I think this is the biggest difference between this Planet Ocean and others. We also call this ceramic black and white bezel “Tai Chi” bezel.
The dial is black ceramic, it is a GMT watch so there is an extra hand for GMT display on the dial. Please notice, the silver hand with arrow tip that is pointing at 5 o’clock is the GMT hand. The black dial looks clean, it is the style I like, central hands are made with stainless steel, they are delicately made with multi cutting faces, so each hand has a strong three-dimensional visual effect. About the dial lume, except the green lume on minute hand, the lume light on other hands and hour markers looks blue. However, if the watch has a full black ceramic bezel, I will like it more.
The bracelet is made of 316F stainless steel, it is fully brushed with every piece of links finished perfectly. By the way, through the sapphire crystal back, you can see the movement machine parts clearly. It is a clone 8906 movement, with decorated Platinum plated movement plates and auto rotor, the balance wheel is also black like original movement, so this clone 8906 is the movement that looks closest to original Omega 8906.
There are other details on the replica watch that are finished to be perfect, you will feel excited if you check these subtle details carefully.
Like the black Submariner 116610LN, 116610LV is also very popular among Rolex watch fans in various watch forums, both 116610LN and 116610LV are the Rolex watches that are mostly replicated by a lot of factories in Chinese market, in my memory, these factories are BP, J12, ARF, Noob, V9, ZZF, KSF, DJF, etc, I can not even count. However, among so many factories, their quality is different, so the price is different. Today, I will take Submariner 116610LV for an example, and picked up two best replicas to make a comparison review, hope you can learn something that will help you to make decision when need to buy one.
About two best replicas of Submariner 116610LV, one is made by Noob, its latest version is V9, the other is made by AR factory, the latest version is V2. In their 116610LV, both Noob and AR can install Asia clone 3135 and Asia clone ETA movement in it, today, I will choose the model with Asia clone ETA movement to make this comparison.
I got both watches before, and I think AR makes a better case. When I first got the ARF 116610LV on hand, I loved it, simply speaking, it gives me a genuine feeling. You know, I am not a watch expert and I will not make a very detailed and close comparsion between a replica and genuine, so the first feeling a replica watch gives me is very important. Although both Noob and AR factory make Green Submariner 116610LV with 904L stainless steel, and the case thickness is also the same, which is 13mm, but the case finish of AR is better than Noob, I also feel more comfortable when wearing the ARF 116610LV.
The bezel of ARF 116610LV is better. First, both Noob and AR factory use green ceramic insert on the bezel, the green color used by both factory is very close to that of genuine watch. However, the polishing of the bezel is better on AR factory, and there is no gap between the bezel and case, on some V9 models Noob factory published, there is tiny gap existing, hope they can improve this flaw next time. Finally, the luminous coating on bezel markers has a platinum color tone like genuine on both Noob and ARF.
Both Noob and ARF have their own advantages on the green dial. The white printings on Noob are more accurate than ARF, after all Noob has upgraded this replica to V9 edition, every time when they upgraded this watch, the dial printings could be improved. About the date window, AR has a more neat date font, when you first see it, you will choose AR, however, if you carefully with genuine, Noob has a correct date font. At last, about the hands, Noob makes them with iron, and the iron sheet is very thin, while AR makes them with stainless steel, so, whether in material or finish, the hands of AR are better than Noob.
Both Noob and AR factories make dial lume correct.
On the ARF V2 Edition 116610LV, the bracelet finish has been completed to be perfect, it can be even exchanged with genuine watch. Although being made with 904L stainless steel both in Noob and ARF, but Noob can not achieve such a high quality level in bracelet finish. On every piece of 116610LV Submariner AR factory has published, the bracelet fits case perfectly and no gap, but the gap between case and bracelet may exist on some pieces of Noob 116610LV.
In Noob 116610LV, the movement is an Asia ETA 2836 automatic, which is fully gold plated, while in ARF 116610LV, the movement is Asia ETA 2824-2 automatic, actually both movements are made in China, the stabality and accuracy are good, can not be compared. While Noob offers a super clone 3135 movement option for this watch, this movement makes the watch have the same time and date adjustment like genuine, I think this is the only advantage of Noob 116610LV, but I do not recommend my clients to buy Noob Submariner with Super Clone 3135 movement, because this movement has a high repair rate.
Like genuine watch, AR factory will offer one plastic box for their Rolex including this Submariner 116610LV, while Noob does not have it.
Absolutely AR factory does better in quality check. In watch quality check before out of factory, Noob is not that strict like before. Now, many customers in forums like repgeek and replica-watch complained that their Submariners have problems after receiving the package within one week, they complained that the bracelet broke from the point that connects the case, lume coating on bezel markers falls off, etc., these complaints are true, while in all my clients who have bought the Submariner 116610LV from AR factory, no complaint ultill now.
I do not know how is the after-sale service of AR factory, but Noob’s is very bad. In July, one of my clients sent one watch back to Noob for repairing, he waited almost one and half month for the factory to fix it, I must say that the repairing of Noob is too slow.
Both factories have their own advantages, but for beginners, I recommend ARF 116610LV more, because the first feeling it gives to you is more real, the quality and texture of the watch is super. I did not say bad things about Noob, they are a big factory, I have to admit, but if they can not do a better customers service and quality check, I think they will be very difficult to keep the pace with AR factory.

Video comparison between Noob 116610LV and ARF 116610LV:
Today, I was just back from our traditional Mid-Autumn Festival, it is time to share the latest news in our watch industry, within these days, there were a lot of new watches published in our market. For example, Noob published Super Clone 4130 Daytona V3 edition and GMT-Master II 126710 Blue/Red, OM factory unveiled a lot of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches, VS factory made some stunning Omega Seamaster watches, etc. Among these new watches, the most attractive should belong to the GMT-Master II made by Noob factory.
At the beginning of 2019, Noob only published one Rolex GMT-Master II, that is Blue/Black 116710BLNR, that is the only one GMT-Master II from Noob made with 904L stainless steel. After that, Noob put their emphasis on Daytona watches, in September, the Daytona products with 904L stainless steel and Super Clone 4130 movement have been upgraded to V3 edition, we must admit that currently Noob factory has the best replica Daytona. However, in researching and developing other Rolex models, especially GMT-Master II, Noob has fallen behind other factories like GMF. However, the 126710 Blue/Red GMT II which Noob just published saved face for them.
In the past several years, Rolex GMT-Master Batman 116710BLNR has always been the most popular GMT watch. Till 2019, a lot of new Rolex GMT-Master II models were published, there were also a lot of factories manufacturing GMT-Master II, however, among so many watch manufacturers, no one is able to make them with 904L stainless steel and the same Rolex movement at the same time, except Noob. So, even you need to wait for a bit longer to get your ordered watches from Noob, sometimes it is worth to wait.
Now, back to the review of this GMT-Master II, like other GMT-Master II from Rolex, this one is also measured to be 40mm in case diameter, the case thickness is 12.5mm. Both case and jubilee bracelet are made of 904L stainless steel, the bezel uses high quality ceramic material, it is in blue/red color, actually the red looks like brown, the bezel markers have platinum coating that will never fade. About movement, Noob installed a clone 3285 in this replica Rolex GMT, this is the first 3285 movement in our market that has correct hand stack and adjustable hour hand, its functions are completely the same as genuine Rolex 3285.
Noob’s Rolex products are in good quality, some models represent the highest watch-making level in our market, some models have become the legend, for example, the black Submariner 116610LN. About this GMT-Master, if you pursue perfection in case design, dial details and even movement function, then choose from Noob. However, as I said before, the GMT-Master with Super Clone movement from Noob is not that stable, my clients who bought Noob GMT-Master before now all had some issues on their watches, what I want to say is that Noob still has not developed one movement for GMT-Master that is as stable as the Super Clone 4130 for their Daytona products.
Till today, I have written a lot of watches reviews that almost cover each Swiss brand, among them, I liked Panerai most in the past, but after reviewing these watches, it seems like I have been tired of seeing their round case, and in recent weeks, I found Hublot is more interesting, its porthole-shaped case attracted me deeply in recent days, with rubber band, although Hublot Big Bang has a big 44mm case, it can still fit my thin wrist perfectly.
The Hublot replica watch is made by V6 factory, it is a full black Big Bang from Hublot, an old model, I did not introduce this Hublot before, but I found it is still attractive, maybe some people are interested in such full black Hublot watch, which looks very cool. This Big Bang is the most classic model that can show the fusion watch-making concept of Hublot, because the watch is made of three different materials at least.
First, the 44mm case uses black ceramic, actually only the four lugs are made with black ceramic that is polished, while the middle part of the case is brushed stainless steel. The bezel is full Titanium made, stainless steel scews on the bezel with polished face. Please check the back, you can see engravings of “Ceramic”, “Titanium” and Hublot Logo on the connector of case and band.
The dial is well done and shows good hierarchy that you can only see on a good replica watch. The black dial base plate meets the black color of ceramic case and rubber strap, while these three-dimensional hour markers in stainless steel tone exactly echo with the Titanium color tone of bezel. Every small dial is not only finished delicately, but also can work like originals of Hublot Big Bang. The date window is opened at 4:30, it has correct construction and font thickness, white font color also increases the visibility of the whole black dial.
At last, the replica Hublot is installed with an Asia Valjoux 7750 movement, it is actually a common Chinese chronograph movement that has been widely used in replica watches industry, however, the movement has a considerable stability, besides, V6 factory makes correct decoration on movement plates and auto rotor. We call such decorated movement clone HUB4100. Actually such type of clone movement is greatly different from the the P.9000 developed by VS factory. The former is just added with correct decoration of genuine HUB4100, while the clone P.9000 is independently developed by VS factory according to Panerai P.9000 Calibre, while due to technical limitation, it is impossible for a watch manufacturer to develop a super clone HUB4100, so the factory can only achieve this level by adding some decorated plates.
About this Hublot replica watch, it has a good quality, maybe very close to the Classic Fusion made by WWF and F16. For chronograph models, Hublot Big Bang is also one of the watches I recommend.
The latest Panerai replica watches published by VS factory are all CarboTech Submersible, they are PAM 979, PAM 1616 and PAM 616. Among them, PAM 979 and PAM 1616 were published by Panerai in 2019, while PAM 616 replica was firstly made by VS factory in 2017, but they just made improvement and unveiled the V2 edition. Today, I want to show you another Panerai CarboTech Submersible watch, it is PAM 799.
Like other CarboTech Submersible, PAM 799 also has a large case, which is up to 47mm in diameter. Different from PAM 979 and PAM 1616, the case of PAM 799 is made of Titanium material, only the bezel uses forged carbon. Titanium case is fully brushed, it is a bit thick, almost 16mm, I do not know how thick the genuine watch is, may be much thinner. Please check the watch from side, the bezel adds a huge thickness to the case, we can see that the studs are bit higher above the bezel, while the crystal is completely in the same horizontal line with the bezel, this is the same as genuine watch.
The dial is black, the blue color we see on hour markers and hands is actually one type of luminous material, it is fully filled in these hour markers so that the dial will have a strong and long-lasting lume light in dark conditions. The dial is simple but you still can find some flaws, check carefully on these hour markers, some or maybe one of them is not fully filled with the luminous coating, you can see tiny gap. The small second hand on the subdial at 9:00 is absolutely running smoothly.
Inside the case back, it is a Super Clone P.9010 movement independently developed by VS factory. About this movement, I have talked too much about it, in outlook, it looks completely the same as genuine P.9010 Calibre, even the balance wheel is set in right position at 7 o’clock. In function, the clone movement still can not have the same power reserve as original, you have been already very lucky if the watch you bought can run an entire day without winding.
Actually, the gap between replica and genuine is still big, even there are many quality replica watches, we have to face the truth that replica can not be made 100% the same as original.
I never saw a carbon Daytona watch before, maybe it is the first Daytona watch that adopts forged carbon material on case. In 2019, the most exciting news is that Noob factory has unveiled Daytona with Super Clone 4130 movement, yes, we have to admit that 2019 is the world of replica Rolex in fake watch industry, and the biggest success is the release of Noob Super Clone 4130 Daytona, do you know how hot it is? You even need to wait for nearly two weeks for Noob to release the stocks after placing the order, now its popularity has surpassed the flagship model Submariner 116610LN of Noob. Please take a look at the photos below, that is a Daytona replica watch in another style, I am going to introduce this weird black Daytona watch today.
The replica Daytona watch is made by WW factory, we call it WWF. You know, the Hublot Classic Fusion replica from WWF is very hot in recent months, especially JJ factory was closed several months ago, now, only two factories in our market make replica Hublot Classic Fusion watches, WWF and TWF.
On the case, WWF uses real forged carbon material, the case has very special prints. The bezel has white and red markers, which exactly echo with the red stitching on black nylon strap. The forged carbon case has a good finish, and the watch feels very comfortable when you wearing it, it has a very light weight. Case back is made of 316L stainless steel that has been blackened.
The dial is black and has white printings, central second-chronograph hand is in bright red color, this long and big hand works for seconds chronograph, it has the same function as real Daytona watch. The red hand and “DAYTONA” form a high contrast with the black dial background. Three small dials have real functions, sub-second hand is working on the small dial at 6 o’clock, other two small dials present minute and hour chronograph.
Although the replica has the same chronograph function as real watch, it has a thicker case than genuine. If you want the case to be exactly 1:1 replicated from original, which I mean the replica Daytona has the same thickness as genuine, then you need to go with a Daytona replica watch from Noob or AR factory. The Daytona watches from these two factories absolutely represent the most advanced watch-making technology in our market, they also have better case finish and 1:1 original case profile.
However, if you want to try something that looks fresh, then this carbon Daytona watch will be a good start.
It is a nice day, and I just heard a big news, that is the first Rolex tourbillon watch published in our market. Yes, it surprises me and this is unimaginable, however it happens. We know Rolex is a world-famous brand and it is also one of the best-selling watches, but Rolex never made a tourbillon watch before, and today I still can not believe there will be a Rolex tourbillon watch. While I can say that this watch is not produced by Rolex, it is designed by Label Noir and just used the Rolex name.
Label Noir makes some custom-made watches, while this replica is made by JB factory. I introduced this factory in other posts, it is a factory that specilizes in manufacturing tourbillon watches. Now back to this watch, like Label Noir, JB makes it based on a Milgauss 116400, the movement is a real Sea-Gull tourbillon, the factory added 94 new components on the base of this tourbillon movement, it is a new breakthrough in technology.
Like Milgauss 116400, this Rolex tourbillon watch also uses an Oyster case, stainless steel case and bracelet look so common, the dial is sanded and in grey dial, so besides the white ROLEX printings, the first you will notice on the watch is its tourbillon device at 6 o’clock. The central second hand also inherits the lightning-bolt second hand of Milgauss.
After the Roger Dubuis Double Tourbillon and Richard Mille Tourbillon, this is another great tourbillon timepiece from JB factory, which is born for high-end tourbillon watches.
GM factory grows bigger, now it even has more Rolex in stock than Noob. We need to wait for a long time for Noob factory to release their stocks, but if you place orders from GM factory, then you just need to wait for less time. I have to admit that Noob created the best Rolex replicas in the past, now the glory of this factory no longer exists, its main competitors J12 and GM all do better than them. The only one advantage of Noob factory which they still keep is their super 4130 clone Daytona, now Submariner and GMT-Master are no longer their star products.
GM is a great factory, it often publishes new watches and has a large stocks, today, I want to introduce a Yachtmaster II from GM factory, it is the first replica Rolex YachtMaster II watch that is made with 904L stainless steel in our market. In recent years, Rolex has unveiled several YachtMaster models in different sizes, but I still love the YachtMaster with counterdown function, although this replica does not have the counterdown function, it is still a good replica watch.
I like this YachtMaster watch due to its blue color usage on the bezel and dial, the blue color is exactly in line with the ocean them which Rolex YachtMaster wants to present. The replica is made of 904L stainless steel on case and bracelet, 44mm case is brushed, with two chronograph pushers set at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock. The bezel is rotatable and features a blue ceramic insert with deep engravings that has the same tone as platinum markers of genuine Rolex.
The dial is white, the circle on the center is for countdown for yachting, while on this replica, the countdown function is fake, so the central hand with a big red triangle does not work. The dial has a good visibility, a small second subdial at 6 o’clock has a blue circle with white markers, central seconds-chronograph hand is in bright red color, which will start to work if you push the button at 2 o’clock. By the way, the hands are updated, they are the new hands which Rolex updated in 2017 basel.
Movement is clone 4161, it is the first time for a factory to use a clone 4161 movement on a replica Rolex YachtMaster, you know, even Noob and AR still have not used this movement, so, GM factory created the precedent. The movement has a good decoration on the rotor and plates, which are very similar to Rolex 4161. You can only see the beautiful SEALs after opening the solid case back, but I do not suggest you do that.
Now, order this watch and we can ship immediately, placing the order from GM factory and you do not need to wait.
Royal Oak is one of the most popular sports watches, in my opinion, its popularity is second only to Hublot Big Bang. Among so many Royal Oak models, the most classic is 15400, the Royal Oak 15400 has a diameter of 41mm, which is not too large and very suitable for most men. Royal Oak 15400 also has several dial versions of black, blue, white and grey, here it is the one with grey dial.
Royal Oak 15400 has a very simple design, so it is always the hottest model for various watch manufacturers to replicate. However, after seeing so many replicas from different factories, the best one is made by J12 factory, we call it JF here. No other factories can compete with JF, which still continuously improves this watch, now this one is the latest V5 edition they just published several days ago, with a lot of improvement upon previous version.
First, open the clasp and check the “AUDEMARS PIGUET” engravings, they are more three-dimensional, the sand-finished background is more delicate. The “AP” engraving on the buckle looks more three-dimensional, and it has the same sanded texture as genuine watch. Third, the checkers on the grey dial have the same size as genuine, each checker is closer to that on genuine in size.
I never doubt the case finish of Audemars Piguet replica watches from J12 factory, because they never let me down. The case finish JF has done on their Audemars Piguet watches can be even compared with that of genuine Audemars Piguet, even the Rolex replica watches made by AR, which is a sub-factory of J12, have already inherited the exquisite manufacturing process from JF.
About the movement, it is a big advantage of JF. The 15400 is equipped with a clone 3120 movement, which is firstly developed by JF. Because the movement is modified on the basis of a genuine Miyota 9015, so it originally has a super accuracy and stability. The auto rotor and movement plates are decorated by JF according to genuine Audemars Piguet 3120 Calibre, check those sculptures on the auto rotor, they are very close to genuine movement, the jewels on movement plate also have correct color tone.
Having been updated to V5 edition, every detail on this replica 15400 has reached to be perfect. It is the best version, you do not need to wait and it is time to buy now.
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?
The following are some photos of GMT-Master II from GMF, with Asia 2836 movement.
