Thanks for calling a spade a spade, good honest review Dylan!

Rolex Phang says:

Is this a ETA movement? I would never spend huge amount of money for a ETA movement watch. I don’t have good impression on Hublot as I personally I felt there are a cheap knockoff of AP Royal Oak. Not to mentioned the resale value is extremely poor.

e smith says:

I love the design of that strap

JO A says:

Thank you very much for your informative and honest review. I think the Hublot are over priced.

Peter Brimer says:

I enjoy all your watch reviews as they are so honest and refreshing. Please could you review Rolex Daytona 116519LN
Thanks Peter

Can you make a rewiew on a do journe

ollie jensen says:

As some one that had the money n the choice between this n the ap n still chose this. It does go to show it is just a personal preference

Andrew Holt says:

That was an honest going on scathing review and I’m guessing Bijoux Diamonds and Jewels isn’t an Hublot Authorised Dealership. They do look slightly tacky but I have heard they are noted for using innovative materials and Jean Claude Biver worked at AP. Usain Bolt promotes them and the recent McGreggor Floyd Mayweather fight. Their magic gold is very resilient. I suppose if you have the cash get one for your collection.

Allan Huynh says:

Come back when you’ve grown some pubes son.

DJZ says:

What I really want to know is about plans for use of the ZO342 in the Fusion series.


Hublot’s are shitters, shitters, SHITTERS I SAID!!!

Do you hear me? SHITTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jens Roßbroich says:

the black side panels are made of kevelar

Alpay Bayraktar says:

I can’t believe how this cheap looking ugly watch got so many attention… People really are brainwashed by brand names and marketing, it’s insane. I dislike everything about this watch, the colour combo, non in-house movement (which is a more fancy version of Valjoux 7750 and it’s called HUB44 LOL), the design, the strap (my God the strap is awful) and pretty much everything about it. This watch is ugly. And the fact that they sell it to you for roughly $20K is much more insane than the actual watch itself. Hublot is really a shitty brand, trying to get the attention of spoiled, uneducated and misinformed rich kids.

Sean McGuire says:

This guy is great. He should design a high end luxury watch.

obsedatr6 says:

This is the first time I see Dylan beeing so negative about a watch and a watch brand.First of all this is the 2004 model, so it should be compared o the 2004 AP RO 42mm, which is nothing compared to the 2014 44 mm model, and also has some negative things about it.The clasp is not that bad, actually it allows the strap to go underneath the clasp, without a small remaining part that looks kinda goofy, and it also offers balance .Saying that it looks like a Michael Kors, it’s kinda extreme also.Rolex is so counterfieted theese days, it requiers a masterful eye to detect a replica from an original, so it is not nice to point the finger towards Hublot. My opinion is that Hublot shines in the 2nd hand market, if you want a Gold/ceramic piece, there nothing better and cheaper.Nowadays Hublot has evolved alot, so most of theese design flaws are gone.But Dylan is right with the depreciation issue, it is not wise to buy a new Hublot, or as a first luxury piece.But anyway, always great to see another review from Bijou, my favourite reviewer so far!!!! Good job Dylan!

e smith says:

How much

An elephant hiding behind an ant -monkeh88- says:

just bought it

Don Cetrulo says:

I would like to see a review of vacheron constantin overseas chronograph blue dial, please.

TopEvt says:

I own the Hublot Big Bang 44mm in 18ct Rose Gold and you are right that part does look like plastic but I rough used the watch daily and no scratches there so its not plastic I guess.. maybe they gave a different finish to ceramic or something.

Alex Shu says:

It is not correct to compare Hublot and AP. AP is much more expensive. And Rolex is another type of watch.

1000lightyrs says:

Wow man, brutal honesty, I respect that. I’m definitely not an Hublot fan, and haven’t owned one yet. But I actually disagree with you on this one, at least by what I see of the watch in your vid. I really like all the design details on the watch, from the knurled bezel edge to the misaligned screws. I might even be warming up to Hublot now. Thanks for showing it off!

stant0s says:

Great, honest review. Was hoping you’d mention the misaligned screws hehe. Drives me crazy. My Breitling Blackbird bezel even has aligned screws! You’ve made the same observations as me on this watch and is pretty much why I haven’t purchased one yet.

Иван Иваныч says:

Hublot is 2 times cheaper than AP and 3 times than PPh. Its incorrect to compare it at all.

sypen1 says:

Hublots are seriously hideous watches really they look cheap as fuck.

mt89 says:

The price should be tuned down by at least 50 percent. With that money I would get a PP or AP watch

Yusuf Muhammad says:

I own one
And total agree with you wish I bought something else mine gold and tantin

Philip Essehorn says:

Love the watch that youre wearing in this video. Yellow gold daytona with leather strap? Rolex leather strap or other brand?

Martin Arnold says:

Being a basic finish then as you stated, its easy to see why it’s copied so widely. It’s hardly going to stretch a good fakers manufacturing capabilities. This is why I would buy a fake Hublot for a few hundred and have no qualms at all….

Severin says:

I would like to see a review on the yacht-master 116622 with the rhodium dial 🙂

Heath Hamaguchi says:

Love the honesty my friend. I love the watch.
