    After half a year Hublot Big Bang Full carbon Review

    It happens to be half a Year from now on where I received my first replica.
    Wich is a Hublot Big Bang 44mm Full carbon fiber with the white lumed accents.

    I want to give a short overview how my first replica performed and if it was worth it.

    First some Stats ;-)

    Pls note that I did most of them in the first or second Week of my purchase and wasn`t that much into watches at the time.(probably don`t know anything even now :P)

    Accuracy of the watch wich lies longitudinally to the horizon after 24 hours : +2 sec +-0.5 sec

    Accuracy of the watch on the wrist after 24 hours : +2 sec +-0.5 sec

    Cronograph accuracy after 10 Hours Cronograph : -3 sec +-0.25 sec
    Watch : -2.5 sec +-0.25 sec

    Performence after 30 days ca.12 h on wrist 12 h in watch box : +61.5 sec +-0.25 sec
    (this does not include the other accuracy tests)

    Usage of the Cronograph in 6 months :

    I really wanted to test how long it would withstand my exessive usage
    and I am just stunned.
    I used it every time when I went to the Gym wich
    is 4 times a week to count the time for my set wich is 1min / 1min 25 sec
    depending on the exercise and also 2 min between each exercise.

    So Ive used it 99 Days 104-5 where I was sick and each day 28 times.
    3 sets 7 exercises + 7 pauses between the exercises.
    So I used it 2772 times.


    Now let`s come to the part of me actually wearing the Watch:
    • Rubberband is firm pretty comfortable over the complete day
    • More people than I thought noticed it is defnitly not a suttle watch
    • Becease of the carbon it`s pretty scratch resistent and even now it looks like its new(apart form the dust of course)

    Flaws from the beginning of my ownage Flaw Picture : https://imgur.com/7hYuHI8
    1. Clasp is wobling a bit around but doesn`t concern wearebility (but it anoys me) Woble gap :https://imgur.com/nmbveZP
    2. Theres a tiny scratch on the upper part of the 4th hour marker
    3. Lume on 6th hour marker is not even (Lume still pretty strong a bit better than my 400 Euro Casio) Lume Hublot ; https://imgur.com/bm8hNoR Casio: https://imgur.com/uS2mCrY Both: https://imgur.com/ZSTHcLW
    4. The movement is pretty loud Back of the watch: https://imgur.com/s7J4rWV

    Flaws comming with the months Flaw Picture : https://imgur.com/7hYuHI8
    1. After 2 months the minute subdial wasn`t perfectly alined anymore
    2. The Rubberband has some wear on it
    After all I am extremly Happy with the watch and that I found out about this forum.

    Thank you for reading this review if you have any feedback I would be really glad about it. This is also my first review ever so I know I have much to improve (especially grammatics ;-) )
    and I already Purchased a couple of other watches (2gens and 3reps) and maybe want to review them to and make a rep vs gen comparison.

    Thanks for the thoughtful long-term review. Many people, myself included, often state their initial impressions but these longer-term reviews offer more insight. Thanks again!
