    I am a bit confused.
    Am i correct to say that V1 is still better than v6 in overall except for the decorations?

    Is the BB King Power F1 PVD/Blue below considered a V6, V6.5, or neither? I am looking for one and have looked for reviews although I havent been able to find any. Does anyone have first hand experience with this watch? Maybe I searched the wrong acronyms and cant find them? Thanks in advance.

    Awesome, I just spent hours reading up on Hublot because of this thread. Will look to pick up a good HBB rep...and since this is V6 Factory that means most of the TDs will have access to them right?

    If this isn’t a marketing case study, it should be. Born in 1980 with no provenance, Hublot put the ‘whore’ in horology. The brand spent the better part of three decades in obscurity, until Jean Claude Biver took the reins in 2004. He brought in a new designer, increased the prices to shift the perception of the brand, and focused almost entirely on product placement and celebrity endorsements. As a result, turnover has grown more than ten-fold over the last decade. In other words, the world is full of idiots and Eurotrash bankers.

    Another thanks for those that contributed to this thread. It's helped me decide that my next watch will be a HBB.

    I Would like to buy a Big Bang V6.5 Factory SS Bezel & Case Black Number Marker Dial on Black rubber strap, but don't know exactly how to do it. I have seen Intime and others websites options, but I am worry about the payment options, sending money through Money gram etc, and probably don't receive anything. So what is the safest way to do it. Please advise... I really want that watch. Useful info here Thanks

    I've been looking for the Hublot Ice Bang, which I understand had 4 knurles on the side of the bezel on the gen.

    I've contacted a couple TD's, and it sounds like the only bezels that the V6 factory are producing now have the 7 knurles. The intime link below shows what I mean by 7 knurles.

    http://www.tb-688.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=34_70&product_id=129

    Has anyone recently picked up a Ice Bang with the correct bezel? Is there somewhere else to get that bezel?

    You mean the teensie tiny knurls along the outer perimeter on the side of the bezel? Like it is 7 wide?

    Lol. I know! It's an EXTREMELY minor detail. I blame the experts on here that have keen eyes for finding the most minute details which I'd never notice on my own, and I would've been blissfully unaware of it before reading this forum.

    It won't stop me from getting an Ice Bang, but if there's one out there that's correct, why not get it. It sounds like there was a correct one being sold at one point in time but it may have been discontinued. I did find a replacement bezel on eBay but for me it wasn't worth the extra cost.

    I totally see what you mean now! Googled some gen pics and did a side by side to try and see it, and I totally do. Don't think this detail would bother me too much in the long run, at least I hope not!! (or I blame you! haha)

    I have several reps, but none Hublot so far. Now i decided to go for my first Big Bang. I´m learning about it, but i noticed this Guide is kinda old (from 2009). Is this guide still being updated to the current HBBs models? Im interested in the V6.5 version, but not sure if this guide is related to it... The V6.5 appears to be newer than this guide

    I too am hoping for a overhaul on this badboy (post) to make sure everything is included from recent years.
