Published by the VS factory in October 2022, this two-tone golden Rolex Sea-Dweller replica watch boasts its standout feature—the renowned 3235 movement, also employed in VS’s Datejust and 41mm Submariner models. Clean factory, a direct competitor of VS in the Rolex realm, is often a point of comparison, prompting inquiries about which factory excels in crafting the best Datejust and Submariner. While VS’s movement is commendable, questions arise about case finish, dial, and other details, igniting debates over which factory reigns supreme. Both VS and Clean maintain comparable quality; Clean’s Datejust and Submariner movements have also withstood the test of time. Contrary to previous instances, where AR factory outshone competitors in case and bracelet craftsmanship, neither VS nor Clean has reached that pinnacle.
Measuring 43mm in diameter and 15mm in thickness, the replica watch features a case crafted from authentic 904L stainless steel. Questions linger about whether these super clone Rolexes genuinely use real 904L steel, with both factories claiming to adopt it three years ago. The uni-directional rotating bezel, with a black ceramic insert, incorporates a yellow gold-tone bezel tooth, seamlessly matching the gold tone on the case and bracelet. The dial’s meticulous detailing, including the “SEA-DWELLER” print in matching gold, exhibits perfection. Attention to alignment, such as that of the big triangle marker and crown logo, is crucial in ensuring a flawless dial, making it imperative to select a high-quality timepiece from the VS factory.
The movement, a clone 3235 automatic, is touted by VS as the premier clone 3235 movement in replica Rolex watches, claiming an impressive 72-hour power reserve. While skepticism surrounds the notion of such prolonged power reserve in a replica watch, further testing may provide clarity. Notably, Clean factory has yet to produce its version of the Sea-Dweller replica watch, but anticipation looms, with expectations that it will be competitively priced against VS. The lingering question remains: Why are timepieces from Clean consistently perceived as overpriced?
