The Classic Fusion, introduced in 2004, has been the more discreet, subtle sibling in the Hublot replica watches UK line. In terms of watch nomenclature, the Big Bang is about as “autological” as you can get – a loud and bold wrist watch designed to get attention. Many brands come to be known as synonymous with one particular watch model by a large segment of the watch fan population, but that is not to say that other offerings aren’t impressive works of design, material, and technical achievement. After wearing the Hublot Classic Fusion 8-Day Power Reserve Titanium watch for some time, I learned to enjoy the quieter Hublot sibling in a way that allows me to appreciate it irrespective of the Big Bang’s shadow.
Hublot is a brand with a devoted and loyal fanbase for several reasons in addition to releasing some truly fantastic watches. For example, they provide a great level of service that is refreshing for a lot of buyers. If you’re not the “typical” Hublot fan, the Classic Fusion series Hublot replica watches might be worth looking into. And you may not like the Big Bang, Classic Fusion, or any iterations of either, but it’s impossible to deny the brand’s appeal and success as well as their consistency in improving their products.
Getting on to the watch itself, the 45mm-wide case would usually be on the upper end of a desired size for me, but given its slimness, I actually wouldn’t change it one bit. The polished titanium case Hublot fake watch is refined by any standard, let alone for a brand that tends to go for louder design choices like Hublot. The H-screws add a masculine edge to it, and though this is a matter of taste, I personally love that they are not all evenly aligned.
The dial itself is black sunray satin-finished, with rhodium-plated appliques and hands. It’s handsome enough, but I have to admit that legibility was less than ideal when it was bright out. The power reserve indicator at 10 o’clock, a seconds subdial at 6 o’clock, and a date window at 3 o’clock throw symmetry out the window. But if you ask me, dial symmetry for the sake of dial symmetry is pointless. I like a seconds subdial, and the power reserve indicator is a huge part of why you get this piece. I’m 50/50 on date windows, but on a watch with an 8-day power reserve that I never had to reset, I have to say I liked having it.
