Review: Noob v7 submariner 116610LN

Recommended Posts

It arrived a few days ago. Everytime I open a the China-package for my replica I expect it to be like 0,5 m big after been zooming in on all the reference prics, QC-pics and so on the computer screen. And when it finally comes out of the plastic wrapped around it looks so tiny :) And all the small "bad" details that I was affraid of wasn't even visible for the human eye :) Not for a 31 year old any way...
 
I don't own the gen unfortunately so I can't compare them but I have been watching A LOT of pics, Youtube-videos and have seen it in real life many times and this is rep is amazing!
 
My old sub-rep from Josh (7 years old and still works perfect) can't compare with this Noob v7 (well, maybe the dials are pretty similar). And 7 years ago that rep was considered top-notch. I've added comparison pictures but they don'r really justify the difference between them i think. The feeling and details between them are obvious IRL...
 
I've probably spent more money on reps than what the gen sub costs. I've only got 6 reps left in the collection and this sub is my absolute favorite. 
 
Most of you already know the small difference between a Noob v7 and a gen but I can gurantee you that this watch would fool 99,5-99,9% of ordinary people and most of the gen-owner (it wouldn't fool you guys of course :) but MOST of the gen owners haven't taken notice of the "black hole" on/in the cyclop or that their watch is highly polished between the teeth on the bezel ring. Neither do they think about 0,05 millimeter difference on the SEL-fit when looking at their watch)... imho...
 
You guys have given me a lot of knowlege here so I thought I would give you a litte something back, for what it's worth... Also you are friendly here unlike one other forum where members screams: 
 
"YOU CAN'T POST 3 QC-PICS HERE AND ASK FOR ADVISE! THAT'S INSANE TO DO ON A REPLICA-FORUM! THE TD IS GONNA GO BANKRUPT NOW... WE WILL HAUNT YOU AND BAN YOU FOR LIFE BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T READ THE  RUUUUULES". 
 
So thank you for that :)
 
Finally:

- Rehaut very good!
- Dateween and cyclop alignment - Good (even if the picture doens't show)
- SEL - Very well I think (you be the judge)
- A little dust on the camera lens or/and the watch but perfect condition when it arrived!
 
Hope the pictures are ok. Taken by my mobile.

Lovely rep Akilles. Looking at your pics makes the wait for my BK Noob sub so much harder. 

 

Nice images too!

Thanks! Good choice with the BK Noob Sub, I've heard it's a masterpiece!

BTW sorry for the misspelling of "Date Wheel":fool:

Funny in 7 years worth of revisions they still can't get the SEL quite right, not that anyone other than us nerds would know what a SEL is let alone spot it as a tell. Nice piece and the insert numbers look lighter than some v7's I've seen which is a step in the right direction.

I choose 2836... It seems to be the most stable movement at the time when comparing it to 3135.

 

So far it works very, very well!

What movement did you pick?  Asian Clone 3135 or Asain ETA 2836 Automatic Movement?

Any thoughts on the performance so far?

Yes, that's the correct address at the time (20th July 2017).

Can someone please tell me what SEL stands for and what it is. Apologies, I have read a lot but can’t seem to find what that stands for. Thank You in advance

The highest version for this black sub is now from AR factory instead of noob factory.

Although both factories are located in Dongguan China.

 

You might feel free to contact me for 1st hand source in China factory.

Noob V7/V8 

Ar 

email: hkterran@gmail.com

the different between Noob and Ar please refer to following video:

Asian ETA 2836 has a better stability  and in cheaper in price.

If you're going to hi-jack this thread by selling yourself, you could at least refer to a video where they speak ENGLISH. I have no idea which one is AR or Noob in the video you linked too

just a sharing instead of hi-jacking.

There are more precise replica factories nowadays. As you know they are from China, as a result,  the 1st release report or videos are in Chinese.

noob factory is good and old , if you are big fan of N-factory, i can also get the 1st hand sourcing for you.:) I live nearby the factories.

I just agree with OP about the video, which one is Noob and which one is the other?

left one is Ar and right one is noob V7

The most disadvantage for noob V7 is the outer ring and the weight on hand. The outer ring will become [censored] when time goes by. Everyone knows that in China.
