I have bought this replica a couple of months back and so far I am quite happy with it. On the outside it has all the design particularities, details and markings of the original watch while on the inside it is equipped with a pretty accurate automatic mechanism.
I have always loved the look of the YachtMaster with black dial. For me, it represents a perfect balance between sporty and chic. As you can see from the photo, the face of the watch has all the specific details of a Rolex YachtMaster: the triangle marker at 12 o’clock, rectangular markers at 6 and 9 o’clock, a 2.5X Cyclops lens over the date at 3 o’clock and dotted markers for the rest of the hours. This index pattern is very important on a YachMaster. It needs to be respected very thoroughly. Any difference in cloning the indexes will show that your watch is a poor imitation.
Also, a very important detail of the dial is the fact that the white markers and the white parts of the minutes, hours and seconds hands are covered by a luminescent layer which glows in the dark, thus allowing you to read the time in the night time. Furthermore, you will observe the leveled outside bezel. Its base is brushed and matte while the top of the raised numbers is polished reflecting the light. The bezel circles the sapphire crystal laser etched with the small Rolex crown over the 6 o’clock position. If you look closer, you can also notice the Rolex word engraved all around the inside of the bezel. All these are perfectly replicated and from my experience only a few replicas can top this level of perfection.
The band is made out of solid full stainless steel. It is heavy and sturdy, just like the original one. The center part is polished while the outer part is brushed. When you wrap it around your arm it fits perfectly while feeling robust and authentic. Its clasp is engraved with the Rolex logo and authenticity markings. I have also noticed that it locks securely and it doesn’t open by itself like other bad replicas do. Still, when you want to open it, it unlocks very easily.
So far, I am pretty content with this replica as it looks and works very well. For the quality I got, it was definitely worth paying a couple hundred dollars for it.
