When talking about Rolex GMT-Master II, we all know that 116710 BLNR was the most popular before, even today, there are still a large amount of people who are pursuing it. 116710 BLNR is also know as Batman GMT-Master, it was one of the best sellers in the past five years in our watch market. The development of GMT-Master II 116710 BLNR has gone through the following stages. First, the poor quality made by unknown factory, at that time, when I just entered into this industry, only some small factories without names made this GMT-Master, the bezel is not real ceramic and the movement is bad quality. At the second stage, some factories like BP and Noob appeared, they made this GMT-Master with real ceramic material and better stainless steel material, Noob factory started to rise. Third, after improving the details of the watch for several times, Noob released the best quality GMT-Master II 116710 BLNR replica, offering A2836 and Super Clone 3186 movement options. At the fourth stage, other factories like GM and AR appeared, together with Noob, these factories used 904L stainless steel to make GMT-Master II 116710 BLNR, and Noob faced the competition of AR and GM.
From the four stages, we can see that the quality of GMT-Master II replica is getting better, and Noob is also the only one factory that not only makes it with 904L stainless steel, but also installs a clone 3186 movement with correct hand stack. So, many people think that Noob makes the best replica Rolex GMT-Master II, in the past, this is also my opinion, but I do not think so now. You need to admit that Noob GMT-Master II is really good, like this new arrival 126710 BLNR with Jubilee bracelet, several clients bought 116710 BLNR from me, when they received the watch, they were very happy with the watch and said the watch gave them a real feeling. However, after a period of wearing, the watch started to have issues, actually I only sold several pieces in 2019, after that, I did not recommend Noob GMT-Master II to my clients.
For the new 126710 BLNR from Noob, I also do not suggest my client purchase it. Many GMT-Master watch fans want to buy one because this replica uses a clone 3285 movement that features correct hand stack. While Noob has sacrificed the stability of the movement to achieve the same original feature, you know the movement is the most ragile part of the entire watch, while Noob made a lot of modification on the base movement, so the stability has been greatly reduced. Certainly, some people will still support Noob and say that they can return the watch to the factory after it has problems, but I must tell you that Noob’s current service is really bad, once you decide to send your broken watch back to the factory, you need to wait for one or two months for Noob to fix it, it is a long time, and few people are willing to wait for that long. If the movement has issues, your supplier will only offer you one solution, that is to replace it with a new movement, then you will need to pay a lot even more than $200 usd, not worth.
Even I talked much about Noob GMT-Master II and say a lot good says about it, I still do not suggest my clients purchase it. If you read my previous posts and think Noob watches are good quality, want to buy your first replica watch from Noob, you can choose other products, like their V10 Submariner or V3 Daytona, they are all better than GMT-Master.
GMT Masterll, which should I buy, clone 3186 or 3285. I’m looking for quality, reliability and accuracy. I’d appreciate your advise.
