Official Hublot really did something special with this watch, and it gains lots of reputation. Totally epitomizing what fresh Hublot designs can feel like. In addition to the great King Power replica model, we copy this watch with at lesst two special innovations that you will really like.
First, a red sapphire crystal. How cool does that look? Of course the crystal is just slightly red, so as to still be transparent. You have to understand that this isn’t merely a red tinted or colored sapphire crystal, the actual crystal itself has that red color to it. On the edges of the crystal you can see the rich red tone, and the dial itself is hued in red a bit as a result of the red lens. Of course, the hands and hour markers that are already red have enhanced colors due to the red sapphire crystal.
Ssecond, top Swiss skeletonized Valjoux 7750 movement. Those watches that utilize 7750s are already modified by Hublot, but here Hublot has actually skeletonized the movement. One image here is of light penetrating though the movement, showing that you can see right through to the other side in parts of it. The combo of the black titanium screws, carbon fiber bridges, sapphire plate under the dial, custom tungsten carbide rotor, and skeletonization makes this feel like so much more than your average 7750 automatic chronograph movement. To make room for the F1 logo on the dial, replica Hublot removed the subsidiary seconds dial. If you want to measure seconds, you can use the chronograph.
Despite the two main features, the mostly red and black dial with the white trim really talks to me. It is very tough to go from a three dimensional Hublot dial back to most other watches. The majority of other dials start to look really flat after seeing the style of King Power dials. Despite the complexity, the large hour markers have a very high contrast, and have applied SuperLumiNova. Those, mixed with the minute indicators on the flange ring, make for a very easy to read timepieces. The hands are of course super bold and sport. Here painted in a bright red, they have a softer look that some other Hublot hands due to the paint, but have an incredible ability to pop out visually. Part of the dial look like they are floating around due to the fact that there is another AR coated sapphire crystal in the case that the hour markers (for example) are mounted on.
Another issue is that the watch has a 12 hour chronograph and the date. You can see the date wheel around the dial, and you read the date where the transparent disc has the white marker behind it, located at about 4 o’clock. The showiness of the dial is balanced by the matte finished case. In matte black ceramic, the case is 48mm wide, with composite resin in the middle, and the caseback is a titanium plate. The screws are all black titanium. The bezel, crown, and pushers are each molded with rubber. The case materials make it feel good to the touch. Hublot often has highly tactile products that are intended to offer a variety of textures, finished, and colors. That rule is no difference here. Every details proves that it deserves our possession.
