Distinguish Between Fake Version And Real Hublot Classic Fusion Black Magic 45mm Men’s Watch Ref. 511.CM.1771.RX

Hublot keeps exploring new ways to fuse creative materials with classic materials. Jean-Claude Biver, loyal to traditional watchmaking craftsmanship, has the foresight and creativity to lead Hublot Classic Fusion collection to keep forging ahead actively. Hublot watch is quite popular with those people who are crazy about sports and wristwatches or has innovative thinking and dare to challenge at the age of 20-45 years.

Some Advice on Buying A Hublot Watch
Replica or fake Hublot watches flood the market, network market is included, as Hublot grows up and develops rapidly. A great number of people order wristwatches for themselves or families and friends. Fortunately, some websites pass fake watches off as the real to sell. Quite a few people choose to buy fake or replica watches, but you should know fake or replica watches are also divided into different grades, so I suggest every one of us must know about certain information on real Hublot watches and replicas. First, when you find a Hublot watch loved by you on some website, you had better search some information about the watch on the official website. At least, you can confirm it by comparing the watch from the official website with another watch from other website. Second, if you want a replica or fake Hublot watch at a online shop, I still suggest you compare the fake one with the real Hublot watch, because you can get something useful to help you make a final decision. Third, you had better ask some information on the watch workmanship, movement, performance and after-sales service. You have rights to get the service and quality assurance.

Here, I will introduce some information on distinguishing between the fake version and real version of Hublot Classic Fusion Black Magic 45MM Men’s Watch Ref. 511.CM.1771.RX. I hope you can benefit from the article.
Difference 1: Dial
If we only watch the dial of the fake Hublot watch, we think it fits fully the characters of the Classic Fusion collection. After all, the watch manufacturers have rich watchmaking experiences, so we must close up and compare it with the original version carefully. First, fake hour markers are different from the original. Nearly all of the Classic Fusion collection use raised solid stick hour markers, but the dial of the fake watch is set with stick hour markers with narrow grooves. If you look through the Big Bang collection, you will find skeleton hour and minute hands go around the dials of the Big Bang watches. The Classic Fusion collection is equipped with pencil-shaped hour and minute hands generally, but the fake dial is equipped with skeleton
hands. Although the fake Hublot men’s watch has different dial from the original, the fake watch indeed is fused with classic elements of Hublot watch.

Difference 2: Movement
HUB1112 self-winding movement, which is based on Sellita SW300-1, provides the real watch with 42 hours of power reserve. The fake Hublot Classic Fusion Black Magic 45MM men’s watch is equipped with a Kinetic battery movement. It means the swing of arms winds up the watch as you walk. Although cal. HUB1112 is a movement based on Sellita SW300-1, its performance is far stronger than the Kinetic battery movement. It’s not denied that the Kinetic battery movement has its own advantages.

Difference 3: Craftsmanship
Hublot fused carbon fiber, ceramic and natural rubber with 316 L stainless steel to create the Black Magic 45mm men’s watch. Weighing half as much as aluminum yet three times stronger, carbon fiber has the highest weight to strength ratio of any material. Carbon fiber features “basket-weave” formation. Ceramic is a general term used to denote any material that is an inorganic, nonmetallic solid prepared by the action of heat and subsequent cooling. The two materials require different manufacturing equipment and operations. Hublot did it well. Even though the fake Hublot watch has similar appearance to the original, the manufacturer’s craftsmanship falls further behind Hublot’s.

Hublot watch occupies a certain share in the watchmaking filed, popular with young men at the age of 20-40 years for the fusion features and cool, powerful appearance. It is inevitable that a great number of replica Hublot watches, especially the Classic Fusion collection, and the reason is that simple but elegant dial and the movements based on ETA or Sellita movements are easier to be copied by some watch manufacturers. I’m not opposed to those who buy and wear replica watches or fake watches, because they have rights to try or enjoy their better life by another way. I hope them to know more about information between the real edition and the replicas.

About Craftsmanship
Hublot always adheres to excelsior spirit and careful attitude to treat each of subtle details. It combines traditional craftsmanship with high-tech watchmaking. For example, the components and parts are assembled by hand, but advanced high-tech is also applied to the process. After assembled, the finished product will be checked and tested strictly on order to guaranteed the high performance and perfect functions. There is no doubt that Hublot is the pioneer brand in matching rubber bands with their watches. It keeps researching and developing new rubber bands to fit the theme of Hublot watches perfectly. The relationship of a band and a watch is like that of a pair of shoes and a outfit. Coco Chanel said, “a women with good shoes is never ugly”. So we know a band is very important, and Hublot tries its bet to supply more possibilities. While, most of replica watch manufacturers just aim to make more and more money, and they don’t have the excelsior spirit. But, of course, many excellent manufacturers try their best to produce replica watches carefully and strictly.

As for the replica Reference 511.NO.1181.LR, the manufacturer use Rose gold-plated material instead of 18K red gold, so the replica watch is not valuable, and the color losing issue must happen in one day. Mat black dial of the real watch bears bold “AUTOMATIC” in 18K red gold, but it’s clear that the replica doesn’t have it. The real one boasts raised button hour marker in 18K red gold, but the light gold hour markers with grooves appear on the mat black dial. The case of the real watch is made of titanium, and the replica case is made of stainless steel. As well, their hands are different from each other. The original watch is equipped with black rubber and alligator straps, luxury and durable. While, the fake version is equipped with black rubber straps. Of course, it’s impossible for the fake watch to match real alligator straps, so the black rubber band is better than fake alligator strap. HUB1112 self-winding movement, which is based on Sellita SW300-1, provides the real watch with 42 hours of power reserve. Swiss ETA 2824-2, the well-polished self-winding movement can do that. Do you think what about the replica Hublot Classic Fusion 45 mm men’s watch?

I analyze the fake Hublot Big Bang Unico Bi-retrograde watch from a replica website by comparing with the original version. I hope what I wrote will help you on learning replica or fake watches.
CASE & DIAL
Fake or replica watches are divided into five grades according to quality and performance, the fake Hublot watch just ranks the fourth place. This is because the fake Hublot Big Bang Unico watch has poor-made appearance. The fake version bears general features like the original edition, but it has poor detailed finishes. The original dial in gray boasts delicate colors, refined craftsmanship and clear areas comparison, but the fake looks low-end because of rough workmanship and chromatic aberration. We can get direct differences from the 60-second/minute arc area, especially an added hand in silver. Below the arc area, three rubies, the small aperture and the small area have big differences from the real. The fake watch has a smaller sub-dial whose bezel is different largely from the real. What’s worse, the sub-dial at 9 o’clock in the fake dial has no hand. It’s obvious that the two parts below 6 O’clock and above 12 O’clock are also different form the original. The real has a yellow pusher at 2 O’clock, but the fake has a gold one. If you are careful to watch some details, you will find more differences.

Rubber Band
Hublot is quite serious about selecting materials, so the Big Bang Unico Bi-retrograde chrono is equipped with special-grade natural rubber band with slim strips. The special rubber with resistance to heat, coldness, pressure and wear doesn’t do harm on human skin and extends its service life. On the contrary, rubber band of the fake watch doesn’t feature those.

Movement
Hublot Big Bang Unico Bi-Retrograde FIFA World Cup 2014 Black Men’s Watch is equipped with HUB1260, an in-house bi-retrograde movement with central chronograph which took engineers and master watchmakers 18 month to finish. The movement patented by Hublot deserved to be a pioneer on the bi-retrograde technology. With long-term operations and filtering for excellent materials and functions, the time displays precisely without any influence, and power consumption and frictional drag are reduced to the minimum. When the yellow button is pressed, the yellow minute hand and the green second hand will go along the arc path. When second hand reaches up to 60 seconds every time, it will jump back to zero and continue to go along. The same to the yellow minute hand. A small aperture at 12 o’clock also shows the period of time that is being measured: first half, half time, second half and match end. This is selected using the yellow pusher. As for the fake Hublot watch, it’s equipped with Quartz (Battery) Kinetic movement from JAPAN. The swing of arms provides power reserve for the watch as you walk. The movement has the chronograph, but the central hands go around the round dial. In fact, the 60-second/minute arc is a decorative pattern.
