1980: Classic Hublot Replica
To most, the Big Bang means the creation of the universe. To us, it shouts perfect replica Hublot. Regarded as one of the brand’s most popular watches, it’s known for its immensity, and classic lines. If you consider the Hublot Big Bang the brainchild of the modern day, then the cheap fake Classic Hublot is the epic Godfather, from which it takes its references. Kickstarting the decade with a surprise, Swiss movement replica Hublot’s Classic model typifies the brands “overtly eccentric and flamboyant [attitude],” shares founder of @fuguewatches, Celi Leopoldo. “The 1980 Hublot Classic was all that with a sprinkle of Italian flair, keeping it elegant and wearable: a sophisticated case design made it look precious and contrasted with the rubber strap that made easy to wear. It was a fitting idea for a copy watch inspired by a porthole and the yachting lifestyle which was very popular around that time. It resulted to be an extremely prolific platform for creativity and has seen many interpretations to this day. By mixing styles and genres, it helped define a new category of watches that blend casual and formal effortless.”
1986: Fake TAG Heuer Formula 1
The watch world might be presently beefing about a certain plastic watch collaboration, but the plastic bezels on high quality fake TAG Heuer’s first Formula One watch will forever be applauded. Rewind. In January 1986, TAG acquired the rest of its name we know (and love) today, Heuer. Challenged to create a watch for the launch, the merger opted for a colourful, inexpensive quartz watch celebrating Formula 1 (in homage to Jack Heuer relationship with the motorsport, and top quality super clone TAG Heuer’s involvement with Marlboro McLaren in the days of pre-papaya.) Today, these steel core cased, rubber strapped beauties are experiencing a real boom, perhaps given the popularity of Drive to Survive. Scoring one of these sought-after babies might not get you the ticket you want into the paddock lane just yet, but you’ll be fully immersed into the fan club of Formula 1. We’ve all gotta start somewhere, right?
