Hublot, is one of the few watch brands today who actually imagine and design new movements to produce all the time from both a practical and artistic perspective. Hublot’s movement design office has bookcases filled with folders dedicated to the schematics of the various movements they’ve designed and produced over the years. Some are the volume-intended UNICO automatic chronographs, and some are the more enthusiast-oriented movements such as the caliber HUB1201 that sits in the Big Bang Meca-10 Replica Watches.
Hublot makes an attempt to share the fact that this is a watch with a movement designed to be original, and cool looking when writing: “The mechanics of the Hublot Replica Watches Big Bang Meca-10 Blue Ceramic are as innovative as the materials comprising them. Developed over a span of two years, its manually-wound skeleton calibre, with a 10-day power reserve, contains 223 parts. A testament to beauty and technical expertise, it has two barrels parallel to the power reserve indicator: a cogwheel system with two rakes sliding along a horizontal axis. Accentuating this mechanical architecture, an opening at 3 o’clock unveils a red dot when the movement is nearing the final days of its power reserve, while a gearwheel at 6 o’clock indicates the exact number of days remaining and the regulating organ, coupled with the small second regulator, appears at 7 o’clock.”
Operating at 3Hz, the HUB1201 has a full 10 days of power reserve with a cool indicator on the dial. The manually-would movement indicates just the time with a subsidiary seconds dial at 9 o’clock. The movement does double duty as the engine inside of the Fake Hublot Watches as well as the dial presentation for wearers. Legibility is remarkably cool via the use of large hands and hour markers, as well as effective surfacing treatments on those elements.
At 45mm wide and 15.95mm thick, the Meca-10 exists in the standard modern generation Big Bang case. Part of me wants this movement to have its own case, but I’m more than OK with it borrowing the Hublot Replica Swiss Movement personality as a frame for the mechanism. Hublot currently offers the Big Bang Meca-10 in a range of styles including black ceramic, titanium, magic gold, king gold, and now blue ceramic as the reference 414.EX.5123.RX.Blue ceramic is still a relatively uncommon color for ceramic watches, so there is a distinct novelty value in a watch like this right now.
