I had never encountered a transparent timepiece that fully revealed the inner workings and various components right before your eyes. Today, I will be providing a review of a replica watch from the renowned Swiss brand Hublot. Specifically, this watch is part of the intricate Hublot Unico series. The replicated Hublot hails from the SF factory, known for delivering numerous high-quality replica watches. SF is a commendable manufacturer that thrives on embracing challenges in watchmaking. Consequently, each time they introduce new replica watches, there is a significant advancement in watch-making technology.
Take, for instance, this Hublot Unico Sapphire replica. Crafted from transparent plastic and featuring a skeletonized dial, this watch allows for a complete view of the functioning movement and other internal components. The result is truly astonishing and imparts a distinct and novel wearing experience. The design is undeniably avant-garde, making this watch particularly appealing to young fashion enthusiasts.
The entire casing is constructed entirely from plastic, offering transparency that allows for a comprehensive view of the internal mechanical components. The case has a diameter of 45mm and a thickness of 17mm, with a plastic bezel securely fastened by H-shaped screws. Positioned on the right side of the case are silver chronograph buttons and a crown. The transparent case back further reveals the inner movement, providing a clear and detailed glimpse into the watch’s intricate workings.
The challenge in replicating this watch primarily centers around its intricately designed dial. To begin with, the dial features a skeletonized design, allowing a clear view of the operational mechanical components. The dial exhibits a pronounced three-dimensional effect with multiple layers, and the minute markers are positioned on the beveled inner bezel. Two functional subdials enhance the dial’s complexity – a smaller subdial at 9 o’clock displays small seconds, while a larger subdial at 3 o’clock serves as a minute-chronograph counter. The central seconds chronograph hand stands out with a vibrant red tip, culminating in the iconic H-logo end.
Concerning the movement, it utilizes an Asian Valjoux 7750 chronograph. The movement plates and automatic rotor are adorned to emulate the appearance of the Hublot Unico. Notably, this movement boasts exceptional stability, attributed to the extensive testing of the Asian Valjoux 7750 over the years, particularly in the realm of chronograph replica watches. Despite the comparatively higher price of this replica Hublot watch compared to others, the investment proves worthwhile for enthusiasts drawn to the captivating transparent design.
