Let’s start with what is fast becoming a “bread and butter” range for fake Hublot. What would be an absolute showstopping proposition for most brands now feels so organic coming out of Hublot’s stable that it would be easy to miss the update altogether. The skeleton dials replica Hublot Big Bang Integral Ceramic line is not new. We’ve seen the black version before. However, this week, that stealthy model was joining by threFe new options in white, navy blue, and gray. I’ve always liked this range and think that the new models — especially the gray — are really something.
While gray ceramic is normally at the bottom of my list of colors I’d like to see in this material (mostly because I expect vibrant colors from ceramic and can get gray from steel or titanium watches), this Hublot Big Bang fake with gray ceramic case stands out for its subtle hue. I would call it an almost “Airforce” gray, as it seems to have a little bit of blue in it, which brings character to the model in place of the vividness one might expect. The gray version is reference 451.FX.6923.FX and boasts a gray skeleton dial.
These models are a jaw-droppingly considerate 42mm wide and an eye-catching 13.45mm thick. Water-resistance is 100 meters and the power reserve (thanks to HUB1280) is 72 hours so this one is actually a lot more rugged than appearances initially suggest.
It would be a pricey beater at €22,700, but for Hublot lovers, the price is nothing to be balked at.Well, wow. What to say? This Hublot copy for sale turning it up to 11. And yet, despite this all-sapphire tourbillon clearly having been designed to shock and stun, it could have been crazier. I’m sure you’ve all seen Hublot’s recent (and very interesting) experiments with colored sapphire housings, so this one, in comparison to the orange wallet-assassin that launched last year, is positively demure.
It is also positively divine. I’m not sure I’d love the aesthetic on the wrist as much as I do off it (my furry gorilla wrist would likely spoil the show), but what a work of art, if nothing else. We need brands like Hublot to make headway in regions of interest such as sapphire machining so that the rest of the industry might follow in the trails blazed before it.
