    always liked Hublots, but never seriously considered getting a rep, except maybe an SS one like this. Thing is, I keep reading that V1 is the best, but I can't seem to find any discussion on a V1 SS.... did the V1 factory ever make an SS model like this (with non-CF dials) and ceramic bezel?

    It's a v2 : as such it is of good quality, but not a good as the V1.
    Any trusted dealer is ok.


      A little bump : final mod on this one, reluming by domi.

      I suppose there's nothing else to do...

      Here's a little summary of what such mods could cost you (roughly, and based on my memories), although in the meantime we have had nice reps out of the box (still not perfect but really acceptable)

      - Base HBB V1 lite with CF dial 300 USD
      - ceramic polished v1 bezel 80 USD
      - smooth strap scented 40 USD
      - thick crystal + AR 120 USD
      - V2 engraved rotor + flat bearing 20 USD
      - gen ETA 7750 mod with service 580 USD
      - Taka DW 60 USD
      - engraved bridge 120 USD (ouch !)
      - Ti screws overall 50 USD ?
      - relume 50 USD


      Not mentionning time, fitting and carriage costs : this Hublot has travelled an incredible amount of time

          Beautiful watch! I picked up a V1 as my first rep and have made a few subtle mods since. I love the ceramic/SS bracelet! Could you suggest an AD who might have one?


            I had mine for sale a while back
            It came from MR : be careful, there is a plastic version !!

              Thanks for the excellent write up. I loved the wrist shot with the rubber strap.
              Great photos !


                Although an old thread, still looks amazing. Has given me even more food for thought for my v6.5 coming!
                Respect to Pix, not that you need it!


                  looks great! congrats!!!!!!!
