here are a few luxury watches that speak extravagance like those from swiss company Hublot. Founded in 1980, the company separated itself from other leading brands with its exceptionally distinct watches that emphasized a unique combination of materials and also has the bragging rights for the first watch with a rubber strap.
In addition, Hublot watches such as the Spirit of Big Bang collection now rake a cult-like fan base; a sister to the popular Hublot Big Bang collection. The main difference between the two lines being the Hublot Spirit of Bang watches feature a barrel-shaped case.
However, with all things luxury, heavy price tags are the order of the day. Authentic Hublot Spirit of Big Bang watches start at around $15,000 and can reach as high as $100,000.
For the average Joe, a replica watch is the way to go. Are there any Hublot Spirit of Big Bang replicas worth the money?
The Fake Replica
This fake replica watch is the ideal pocket-friendly clone of the authentic Hublot Spirit of Big Bang King Gold/leather watch. It clones the authentic watch almost too much.
With its $30 ultra-low price tag, it is a steal for people who like the sophisticated look of Hublot Spirit of Big Bang watches, but the price tags don't do the product any favors.
This fake Hublot comes with the signature barrel-shaped 42mm case and a contrasting faux leather strap to match. The case features a brushed gold-colored finish, mock H-screws, a single crown, and fake chronograph push-buttons. The dial reveals second, minute, and hour hands, luminescent hour markings, fake chronograph mini-dials, as well as a date counter in similar positions to that on the authentic watch.
The faux leather strap does a great job at mimicking the look and alligator skin texture of the strap on the authentic watch, however, it is actually made from rubber; TPU. Its strap also features a quick-release closure that is adjustable to fit different wrist sizes.
First, the whole watch doesn’t have the solid weight to its bulk like the real watch. The authentic Hublot Spirit of Big Bang watch comes with King Gold (a blend of platinum and gold), as well as a real alligator skin leather that gives it good weight.
In addition, the dials on the authentic watch actually work. The authentic watch comes with a chronograph, date counter, perpetual calendar, revealed skeleton, and a tourbillon or moon phase dial in some models. This fake watch doesn’t come with any of those.
The finish on the fake watch also doesn’t exactly match the color on the authentic watch. We also frowned at the fact that this watch comes with the ‘Hublot’ logo but isn’t actually from the brand. However, this fake watch does really score well in its appearance and for its price tag, it is worth the money as a replica.
