Hublot Big Bang Carbon Fibre(J12 and V6)Replica VS Gen

Hublot, a now fresh name in replica watch industry, however a lot of friends seem to be not familiar with it, today, let us walk close to the best-seling collection of Hublot – Big Bang series.

Hublot has always not been an ordinary brand, it has an independent design style and uses many high-tech materials, each watch coming from Hublot will feature bold color style. So its fans are also a group of people with unique personality, they have their own way of thinking and not following the crowd.

Model: 301.CI.1770.RX
Diameter: 44mm
Case: Ceramic
Dial: Carbon Fibre
Movement: HUB4100(42-hour power reserve)

Hublot Carbon Fibre Replicas

Now comes the replicas from two famous replica watch factories, the left is J12 and the right is from V6.

The two replica watch factories replicate many brands, some of them are the same, like Cartier Ballon Bleu, Santos and Hublot Big Bang. However when it comes to popularity and amount of sales, V6 is better. I think the quality of their watches is almost on the same level, however V6 makes better in subtle details.

Two replicas are real ceramic watches, you can feel their texture and weight on hand. For people who have never seen replica watches before, it is hard for them to spot as fakes. The appearance of movement is very beautiful, V6 has been modified to be closer to gen, but J12 movement is also acceptable. The chronograph feeling of 7750 is slightly jerky, not as smooth as ST19 movement, especially when pressing the button firstly. The band is a little harder on two replicas, but not sticky and will not be covered with dust. The rubber band does not have a little hint of fragrance like the genuine, certainly the replicas can do this originally, even a lot of cheap fakes. But the rubber bands with fragrance are too soft and sticky. The replica strap has vertical stripes.

The following pictures are the replica Hublot from J12 factory.

Weight and size

The first picture below is J12, the second one is V6.

Two replicas use the same material, because V6 modified the movement plates, so it is 3g heavier than J12, J12 weighs 148g and V6 is 151g.

Hublot V6 Weight

The Hublot replica from J12 is measured 45mm in case diameter, and 15.1mm thick.

The V6 version is 44.3mm in case diameter and 15.1mm thick.

Dial

For complicated watches, the dial details are hard to be replicated, they are difficult to be made close to gen because there are too many factors.

Below, the first picture is J12 version, the second one is V6 and the third image is genuine dial.

The biggest difference lies in J12, V6 and gen. The carbon fibre pattern on gen dial is 45 drgrees inclined, J12’s is horizontal and V6 is like gen. This detail is the largest difference between the two replicas versions.

Hublot Dial Comparison

Below is the comparison of subdials position, there are no difference between the replica and gen.

Hublot Subdials

Hublot Minute Chronograph Counters

Dial font color

The font on J12 dial is pure white, V6 and gen use silver white. So V6 does better on this detail.

Hour markers

The position of hour markers and appearance are the same with gen, lume material is evenly coated.

Hands

The length of hour and minute hands on two replicas are the same as gen.

It seems the J12 has a little thicker date font.

The patterns on the bezel side of both replicas can not be made the same as gen, but J12 replica is more similar.

Caseback engraving

Notice the BIG BANG font, the size is the same, but J12 is wider and V6 is deeper.

BIG BANG Engraving

Movement

J12 uses 7750 movement, whose movement plates have not been modified. V6 also uses 7750 movement but to make sure it looks closer to gen, the factory modified the movement plates. The appearance of auto rotor on two replicas is good. By the way, the movement polishing has a large gap with the gen watch.

42mm Cartier Ballon Bleu Replica V6 vs J12

Cartier Ballon Bleu has always been in hot discussion in replica watch industry, recently V6 factory published their Ballon Bleu replica V2 edition, what about the quality, please let us check it.

First, it comes the specifications of genuine large Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch: 42mm in case diameter, it is equipped with Caliber 049 automatic movement, stainless steel case, fluted crown with a synthetic spinel cabochon, silver guilloche dial, rome hour markers, sword-shaped blue steel hands, sapphire crystal, steel bracelet, date window is positioned at 3. The watch is 30 meters water resistant.

Next the two replica we are going to compare are Ballon Bleu replicas from V6 and J12.

Weight and size

As a replica, I think the most important things are its texture and quality. The two Cartier Ballon Bleu replica watches all have good texture and quality, the crystal is also clearly transparent.

V6 version is 41.9mm in case diameter, 13.2mm in thickness. Genuine watch is 42.1mm and 12mm thick.

Cartier Ballon Bleu V6 Diameter

J12 Ballon Bleu replica is measured to be 42.1mm, and 13.5mm thick.

J12 Ballon Bleu Replica Case Diameter

V6 Cartier Weight

The Ballon Bleu replica from J12 weighs about 150g, including 62g case and 88g bracelet.

J12 Cartier Case Weight

Both replicas have similar weight, they should have same case construction.

Dial color

The left watch is V6, the right one is J12. It is hard to see the dial color difference. However, J12 is more yellowish in dial color than V6.

V6 vs J12 Dial Color

Crown sapphire

On the picture below, the first one is V6, the second one is J12 and gen is at the bottom.

Genuine crown sapphire is deep blue, however the J12 Ballon Bleu is too transparent and blue color is light. So the sapphire color of V6 Ballon Bleu is closer to gen.

Ballon Bleu Crown Sapphire

Hands

The top is V6 and J12 is at the bottom. All baked blued steel hands are in high quality, V6 has deeper blue hands.

V6 Ballon Bleu Hands

J12 Ballon Bleu Hands

Date window

The first is V6, second is J12 and third picture is gen. The date window frame should have layered structure, so J12 version is correct in this while V6 is not. The background of date font on V6 Ballon Bleu replica watch is in silver, which is the same as gen.

Cartier Ballon Bleu Date Font

CARTIER lettering at 7

J12 is correct, the CARTIER lettering on V6 is a little outside. Besides, V6 is thicker.

Here comes more lettering comparison pictures.

Caseback engraving

The left case back is from V6, J12 is on the right. Correct case back engraving is deep, J12 Ballon Bleu replica is more correct.

Cartier Ballon Bleu Caseback Engraving

The following comes with the things inside the case.

Both case backs are satin finished, J12 does it more smoothly.

Movement details

J12 has neat engravings on the inner case metal, the satin finishing has more quality texture.

Bracelet

Can not find any difference, except the deeper clasp engraving on J12.

Hour markers

It seems that all Rome hour markers on V6 are thinner than gen.

Conclusion

V6 indeed does better in details such as crown sapphire, date window shape, date font, etc. Actually, the 42mm Ballon Bleu from V6 is also more expensive, in my opinion, two replicas have their own advantages, both have superior texture and quality.

Replica Glashutte Panoinverse XL 66-01 Watch Review

Too long not to give a review of low end replica watch, today, let’s talk about one replica in cheap price. Maybe most of you will look down these low-cost replicas, because they are low quality. So, what do I think about?

The watch is a replica of Glashutte Panoinverse XL 66-01, the manufacturer to make this replica is to replicate the double swan neck regulator and display the balance wheel. As you know, the double regulator on genuine Panoinverse XL is on the right side of the watch dial, while the replica uses Miyota movement, so the manufacturer can only open one window at 6 to display the balance wheel.

At the same time, the genuine Panoinverse XL has four hands, while this replica only has three.

If someone asks me whether this replica is good or not, I will say it is a good replica. It uses the best PVD gold plating technology, so its case looks close to real K gold, the manufacturer trys his best to replicate the characteristics of Panoinverse XL, see the details below.

Although the watch is easily identified as a replica and can not be compared with those high end replicas, it has many advantages that are enough to make it become a good replica watch, the thick gold plating, jewels decoration on balance bridge and carefully replicated dial details, these all represent the efforts of watch manufacturer.
