Hublot Big Bang Watches


Hublot was founded in 1980 by Italian Carlo Crocco. In April 2008 it was announced that luxury goods group LVMH had acquired Hublot from founder Carlo Crocco, adding to its existing portfolio of watch brands including TAG Heuer.

Today Hublot is among the highest quality of the luxury watches, and have attracted many counterfeit versions of their Big Bang watch. Below are some steps to avoid getting stuck with a fake.

Next, look at the date display. The box should have a curved left side like the real one on the left. Also, the number should be exactly centered in the box.

On the fake one, The box is not curved on the left side and the "3" is a little too far to the left.

Next, look at the clasp. The logo should be engraved not stamped and the engraving should be deep. If it looks like it is just etched, it's probably a fake.

It also needs to have the "H-Screws on each side of the logo.

Next, look at the "Hublot Geneve" on the rotor. Notice on the real one, it's engraved into the rotor. The fake one has 4 issues:

(1) It's not engraved.
(2) It has an incorrect spacing with the middle "E" on "Geneve".
(3) The font is too thick.
(4) The rotor hub is a saw tooth shape.
