Hublot, the Swiss luxury watch brand, is celebrating its four-decade anniversary with a special re-edition of its iconic 1980 Classic Original watch. This limited-edition timepiece pays homage to Hublot’s rich history and showcases the brand’s commitment to innovation and timeless design.
The perfect fake hublot is available in three different case materials, all measuring 45 mm in diameter and featuring the screwed “porthole” bezel from which the brand derives its name (“hublot” is French for “porthole”). The model in 18k yellow gold, the one most evocative of the 1980 trailblazer, is limited to 100 pieces. The other two, limited to 200 pieces, are more representative of the modern-day Hublot and its forays into alternative metals and avant-garde materials, one in titanium, the other in black ceramic. All the cases feature a combination of satin-finished and polished surfaces and are adorned with a “40 YEARS ANNIVERSARY” printed inscription on their sapphire caseback.
The black-lacquered and polished dials, hosting only three faceted hands for hours, minutes, and seconds and an applied “Hublot” and “H” logo at 12 o’clock, are a contrast with the more complex dials of Hublot’s Big Bang models, which helped rocket Hublot to new heights of popularity after Jean-Claude Biver, shortly after taking over as CEO in 2004, introduced them to the collection in 2005. The Classic Fusion collection, from which these limited editions hail, remains alongside the Big Bang (and more recently debuted families like the tonneau-shaped Spirit of Big Bang and the high-complication MP series) as the more understated, dressier alternative, and the 40th Anniversary models are perhaps the purest expressions of that style.
As a limited edition release, the Classic Original Re-Edition comes with a special presentation box that includes a certificate of authenticity. This adds to the exclusivity and collectability of the timepiece, making it a must-have for avid watch collectors and enthusiasts.
In conclusion, the Replica Hublot Classic Original Re-Edition is a fitting tribute to Hublot’s four-decade journey in the world of luxury watches. With its faithful reproduction of the iconic 1980 design and its modern mechanical movement, this timepiece seamlessly combines vintage charm with contemporary craftsmanship. Whether you’re a fan of Hublot’s history or simply appreciate exceptional timepieces, the Classic Original Re-Edition is a true collector’s item that celebrates Hublot’s legacy of innovation and style.
