A totally bomb, it is not a new model, VS factory published the replicas of 40mm Submariner in the end of 2020, the models they produced at that time include 116610LN and 116610LV. And after several weeks, VS unveiled the replicas of new 41mm Submariner, which include 126610LN and 126610LV. Several months ago, I couldn’t imagine that VS will have such a big action in watch industry, after all their main business was in Panerai area before, now they turned to Rolex, I think Noob has felt the pressure, whether the replicas of 40mm Submariner or new 41mm Submariner, VS factory makes them very good, even better than Noob.
The 116610LV replica from VS factory is made of 904L stainless steel, case thickness is 13mm, the Noob Submariner is also 13mm thick in case, so is genuine 116610LV. How about the finish on case and bracelet? I think this is the thing most buyers concern. So many watch factories like AR, ZZF, Noob and BP make this watch, how to know which one is the best? Among these factories, now AR and ZZF have the best case finish on 116610LV, even Noob can not compare with them. The case finish on VS 116610LV is good, but I still think that it is not as good as AR’s.
The green ceramic bezel is also a big concern to those people who want to buy a replica 116610LV green Submariner. On VS 116610LV, the green ceramic insert used on the bezel is from clean factory, which is considered to be the best green ceramic in our market, the green color is very close to genuine 116610LV. About the green ceramic bezel on Noob 116610LV, I do not think it is the best green, even on its latest V12 version. I still remember one thing, since ZZF used the latest green ceramic bezel from clean factory, the sales of their green Submariner 116610LV has surpassed Noob factory. Green ceramic bezel is the most important thing when replicating a Rolex Submariner 116610LV.
About movement, VS factory stated that their custom made 3135 is the best clone 3135 movement in the market, I believe that, there are three versions of good quality clone 3135 movements, Noob Super Clone 3135, ARF SH3135 and VS 3135, I do not know the difference between them, whatever, they are all very good, you can not find the difference between them and genuine from the outside, if tear all components down, I think the inner construction of VS 3135 is closer to genuine Rolex 3135.
