In 2018 Basel, Rolex published several GMT-Master II models, now these models have been replicated by various factories in our watch market. New GMT-Master II watches are loved by a lot of people, but they still can not compare with the 116710BLNR that was released several years ago by Rolex. 116710BLNR is a very classic GMT-Master II, it is also very popular in replica watch field. The replica Rolex GMT 116710 is one of the best-selling replica watches, I think it is among the top ten best sellers list. Today, I want to give a review of this Rolex GMT-Master II replica watch because Noob factory just made an upgraded version, yes, it is exactly the V8 edition we are talking about, the best one currently.
The case has a diameter of 40mm, it is made of 316L stainless steel and is brushed. The case itself does not have too many bright spots to talk, it is not made of 904L stainless steel like Noob 116610LN, I think this will become a big improvement Noob will make on this watch in next year. Facing the strong competition with AR factory, Noob must do some things next year to keep their replica Rolex market share. The case edge is smoothly polished, you will feel comfortable when wearing it on hand. On the stainless steel case, the bezel is the biggest highlight, its black and blue ceramic bezel attract my eyes immediately, the bezel insert uses real ceramic material, while the 24-hour markers on bezel have correct engraving depth and are in platinum tone.
The dial is black. The GMT hand has a stem in blue color, it has a big triangle mark in silver with white luminous material filled in the center. The blue GMT hand exactly echoes with the half blue ceramic bezel insert. You guys must not concern the font thickness of dial printings and lume, I tell you, these details have been made to be so perfect, no flaws. Now, what you really should care about is the hand stack, the sequence of these hands. Whether the GMT hand should be on top of hour hand or on bottom of it? I do not know, because I have not seen a genuine 116710, and this replica gives a real feeling, I do not care this subtle detail. If you guys really care about some tiny defective details, I suggest you buy a genuine watch.
About the movement, Noob re-used Asia ETA 2836 automatic movement on this new V8 edition. While on previous V7, Noob used a clone 3186 movement, although clone 3186 looks very close to genuine Rolex 3186 and has a better winding feel, it does not have that high stability and accuracy like Asia ETA 2836.
The bracelet is made of solid 316L stainless steel, it has perfect SEL, clasp and smooth screws, this is the best Rolex bracelet I have ever seen. The stainless steel bracelet has a good finish, the middle links are brightly polished, while two links at both sides are brushed, two different polishing methods used on the bracelet form an obvious contrast.
The latest V8 replica Rolex GMT Master II 116710 BLNR has already been a good watch, well, I think Noob will make an upgradation soon, maybe it will be one in the beginning of 2019. Then, 116710 BLNR will raise a sales storm again.
