Wondering how to spot fake Hublot watches? Tired of scams and replica watches?

If that’s true, then fear not, you’re in the best place to learn how to spot fake Hublot watches, as we are here to teach you everything you need to know about these. We will be looking at different Hublot models including the Big Bang and Classic Fusion.

This guide on how to spot fake Hublot watches will show you all of the differences between the real vs fake Hublot watches, and so, spotting fake Hublot watches will never be as easy.

The easy and fast method to spot fake Hublot watches is to look at the elements on the dial, as the replica watches almost never have their elements on the dial properly shaped, aligned and generally they are wrongly detailed on the fake watches, while the genuine watches are always flawless, thanks to the care and attention put in when manufacturing these.

How to spot fake Hublot watches

Step 1: Real vs fake Hublot dial elements

The guide on how to spot fake Hublot watches is going to be about the dial’s elements, which we consider as the best way to spot fake Hublot watches.

So, with this being said, below we’ve attached a comparison image with the real vs fake Hublot watches that will highlight the dials of the two wristwatches.

In the picture with the real vs fake Hublot watches above, we have pointed out how the fake Hublot has its spiral squares that are all over the interior side of the dial badly detailed.

What do you mean by that, you might ask. Well, what we mean is that the squares have a different look because they are too thin, and the genuine watch’s squares are thicker. It is also noticeable how the replica watch presents the same squares in a much rougher manner.

We would’ve loved placing hand-emoji pointers to show you the flaw on the replica Hublot, as well as the details seen on the genuine watch, but if we’d do that, the squares wouldn’t have been this easily visible.

Besides, if you look at Hublot’s logo and at the “HUBLOT” written text logo, you can see how the fake watch has no outline for the text, while the genuine watch has its text outlined with black.

Step 2: Inspect the date wheel of your Hublot

Proceeding to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Hublot timepieces, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Hublot watches for their date wheel.

As always, let’s quickly have a look at the fake vs real Hublot comparison image below, and after that, we’ll make it all clear.

real vs fake hublot big bang

In the image with the real vs fake Hublot watches above, we have pointed out how the fake watch’s date wheel is pretty much a dead giveaway.

In fact, the fake watch’s numbers are in 90% of the cases way thicker than what they should be like on the genuine watches.

And speaking of the genuine Hublot, you can see how its number “4” looks thinner and slimmer than the one seen on the fake watch’s date wheel.

One other flaw that occurs in the fake watch in the real vs fake Hublot picture above is that it has its number misplaced because the “6” is placed too high, as it is too close to the top edge of the square.

Looking at the authentic Hublot watch’s date wheel, you can observe how its number “4” is perfectly centered in the middle of the square, without any sort of imperfections.

The bottom line for this step: Make sure to always check the numbers, as the replica Hublots tend to have their numbers badly font-weighted, but also crooked, especially when put side-by-side with the real deal.

Step 3: Examine the Hublot screws all over your Hublot watch

For the third step of the guide on how to fake Hublot watches, we are going to have a look at their H(ublot) logo screws.

Since the H logo screws are placed pretty much everywhere around the real vs fake Hublots, we actually decided to focus on just one side of these, and that’s on the bezel.

In the image with the fake vs real Hublot watches above, we have pointed out how the fake wristwatch has its lines which form the H screws less defined, as they are not as deep and as visible as on the real Hublot.

Just as we spoke about it, let’s make it clear how these should look like on the genuine piece: the screws should have their lines on the sides of these screws fit deep inside the metal, as these two shapes (the lines) on each screw have to be perfectly visible.

Step 4: Check the engravings on the back of the watch and on the clasp

Proceeding to the fourth method on how to spot real vs fake Hublot watches, we are now going to have a look at the two watches for their engravings.

The same as how the heading mentioned, we are going to bring the fake vs real Hublot wristwatches and we’ll have a close look at their text on the case-back, as well as on the clasp.

You know the procedure already, so we’ll first brief the image with both the genuine vs replica Hublot pieces, and after that, we’ll explain it all.

fake vs real hublot big bang

In the picture with the real vs fake Hublot watches above, we have pointed out how the fake Hublot has its brand’s name text totally different from the real watch.

That is because the replica Hublot watch’s “HUBLOT” text looks too thin since it wasn’t as deeply engraved as it had to be inside the metal.

On the other hand, the authentic Hublot has its “HUBLOT” text fit deeper inside the metal, hence it has a thicker and more defined look, rather than the fake watch’s thinner text.

Moving to the rear side of the watch, you can observe how the replica Hublot’s inscriptions are also badly font-weighted here as well.

Every word that’s pointed out in the real vs fake Hublot comparison image above shows you how the fake watch has its text too thin because it was once again fit less deep inside the metal than the authentic watch’s text.

The authentic Hublot watch presents its inscriptions on the rear side deeper inside the metal, as they look thicker and way more defined than the fake watch’s text.

Back at it again, the clasp, but this time we’re on the other side of it – and as always we’re looking at both the genuine vs fake Hublot watches.

In the image with the fake vs real Hublot watches above, we have pointed out how the “STAINLESS STEEL” inscription is too thin and how it actually faded out on the fake watch.

Being faded out, the text on the fake Hublot shows us that it didn’t have the necessary materials to be written at the same high quality as the authentic watch’s text.

Mentioning the authentic Hublot, you can notice how its “STAINLESS STEEL” text looks thicker than the replica watch’s text, and that aside, it is also observable how the genuine piece has its text perfectly visible, without any fading.

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways to authenticate this item.

The next few steps are still reliable signs of authenticity, but are for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the steps we’ve explained above to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.

Step 5: Hublot fake vs real side push buttons

The fifth step of the guide on how to spot fake Hublot watches is going to focus on the two buttons on the side of the watch, and these are the ones that are meant to work with different functions that are equipped on the Hublot wristwatch.

Let’s check this in a more precise manner with the help of the fake vs real Hublot picture that’s linked right below.

The picture with the real vs fake Hublot watches above shows you the buttons that we are actually talking about – they’re above and below the crown.

Always try testing these buttons when you are authenticating Hublot watches, as the replica ones tend not to have these buttons wroking.

And, if they work, please assure that they do the job properly: the buttons are supposed to be linked to the functions and sub-dials on the main dial.

Step 6: Inspect the strap of your Hublot watch

Now that we’ve reached the sixth step of the guide on how to spot fake Hublot watches, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Hublot watches for their straps.

how to see fake hublot watches

This tell applies exclusively to genuine Hublot leather straps. As weird as it may sound, these genuine Hublot straps should have a narrow rubber base and the leather part fit inside the rubber one.

So, even if you see a leather strap attached to a Hublot, the inside portion should have a rubber base in order to be considered an authentic Hublot product.

Step 7: Check the material out of which your Hublot was manufactured

The seventh step of the guide on how to spot fake Hublot watches is about the materials out of which the genuine vs fake Hublot watches are made out of.

Replica manufacturers often mistake the materials out of which the watch is supposed to be made out of. This is pretty much what leaves a gap between the real vs fake Hublot watches.

Here’s a list of the materials out of which the genuine Hublot watches are made out of: steel, titanium, carbon fiber, ceramic, tantalum, rose gold, “magic” gold, and others.

Make sure your Hublot is genuine and try chemically testing the watch with the help of a jeweler, to make sure the material corresponds – especially with more expensive materials like titanium, carbon, gold, etc.

Step 8: Authentic vs replica Hublot serial number

As for the eighth step of the guide on how to spot replica Hublot watches, we are going to have a quick look at the serial number of the Hublots.

Every Hublot watch will have an individualized serial number on the case back. The serial number is 6 or 7-digits long.

The serial number is clearly engraved on the watch. The number is equally clear with raised printing on the original warranty card.

This number on the case back of the watch must always match the serial number on the warranty card. Given the complexity of designs and models, the matching warranty card is important to have and inspect when evaluating and purchasing a Hublot.

While it is always beneficial to have matching paperwork with any fine watch, with Hublot it is no different.

Step 9: Remember to also look at the model number of your Hublot

For the ninth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Hublot watches, we are going to take a look at the model number of the.

The first sequence tells the size, family, and style; the next sequence offers information about the materials of the case. The third sequence informs about the material of the dial, while the fourth sequence is for the attachment’s or strap’s material. Make sure it corresponds with the paperwork and the overall model, by searching for it online.
