If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my short time covering the (truly) strange world of luxury replica watches, it’s to allow myself to be surprised – to not assume my tastes are so ingrained that there’s no way to let another kind of watch in. I’m a very “steel sport super clone watch on steel bracelet” guy, I always have been – and I likely always will be. But that doesn’t mean that the occasional not-to-my-taste watch doesn’t catch my eye. I’ll be the first to admit that it usually comes in the form of something gold – and for me, the hue of choice is yellow.
I stepped into my product preview meetings for LVMH Watch Week with Swiss made replica Hublot, where brand representatives were waiting, with a smorgasbord of new novelties unfurled across a rather spartan table in a fluorescent-lit room, in a New York City skyscraper.
All the AAA quality replica watches were there, from the Sang Bleu to the Integral to the Big Bangs. I saw, in person, what I’ve come to know and expect from best quality copy Hublot: An ultra-modern, often openworked design that tends to veer toward the gargantuan in terms of case size. And then I glanced down and saw a piece that wasn’t getting a ton of attention in the presentation. It was just sitting there, gleaming in yellow gold, with a muted matte black dial. It was a best replica watch I had seen before, but not quite like this.
“What about that one?” I asked.
“Oh, you mean the 1:1 fake Hublot Classic Fusion yellow gold?”
That’s precisely what I meant.
This watch spoke to me with its unassuming matte dial and brushed golden case. In a sea of otherworldly timepieces, this thing was assuredly simple. I picked it up and immediately felt its weight (I mean, it’s gold after all). The case is about as Hublot as Hublot gets, with the downward-tilting, thick end links. It was sitting next to two other watches in the new yellow gold collection from Swiss made replica Hublot: the Big Bang and Spirit of Big Bang.
If this were the normal 45mm fare, my wrist wouldn’t stand a chance. But I quickly learned this watch clocked in at 42mm – the first time in yellow gold. Despite the fact that it’s a chronograph, it had so much of the spirit of the original 1980 Hublot copy watch – the foundation upon which the brand is built.
After zoning out in the presentation room, I finally came to and heard a faint voice in the distance of my mind: “Would you like to take it home for the weekend for review?” I’ll let you guess how I responded to this $26,800 question.
Over that weekend, I wore the high quality fake Hublot UK and tried to distill just what it was that I liked about it. In theory, it runs counter to my tastes entirely. Even when my mind wanders into the shiny world of gold, it tends to be more classic fare like a Rolex Day-Date. In my most adventurous, it’s the Yellow Gold Speedmaster – the one that Nixon refused.
Even my wife, Kasia, got in on the fun with this watch. It’s empirically good-looking, and I can write that because both my wife and I say so. I’ll also be the first to admit, the 42mm sizing really worked on her wrist! (See the lead image.)
There’s so much noise in the watch world about what Hublot replica for sale is or isn’t, or where it stands against other brands at similar price points. To me, Hublot has always been something of a disruptor – whether through price, design, or both. This watch, conversely, feels a lot tamer … for a Swiss movement fake Hublot, I mean. In real-world scenarios, this piece would never go unnoticed. It’s flashy, and I’m not. Maybe I like it because it represents a bit of a fantasy. Who would I be if this were my daily watch?
