Hublot Shines In The Glow Of Watch Dealer Shapur In San Francisco

I have precious few minutes to spend at the meeting at Shapur due to an appointment back at the office, so I wanted to make the most of it. While Mr. Halimi attended to other guests, I took notice of the other hublot replica watches presented. Chronographs, perpetual calendars, and tourbillons (or combinations thereof), where among the offerings. Also on display were the new Hublot Tourbillon Force Constant and Night Chronograph in Rose Gold (wonderful for its „propeller“ seconds subdial). The 15 or so watches represented a significant portion of the http://www.modserap.com/ watches that come to America each year. The brand typically produces about 1000 examples of its watches annually, most of which are not US bound. This was a rare opportunity to become acquainted with the brand by sampling so much of it.
Shapur http://www.modserap.com/breitling-replica-australia-for-sale.html watch No other watch brand I know of resembles the unique looks of Hublot. Frankly, it is hard to copy them, though I am sure many have tried. The construction and time involved in making their watches is intense. As I admire a perpetual calendar model I notice the moon on the moonphase indicator looks like a pearl, underneath a darker pearl layer, set against a lustrous painting meant to resemble stars. The effect is nice, classy, and very difficult to reproduce. Materials on these watches blend well, and the squared alternating material pattern on the bezels (an iconic Hublot look) is set together so well. Having handled enough watches, I can tell the quality of these watches is more than just the raw materials put into them. A deep sense of craftsman-like affection is apparent in the perfect fit and finish of each watch. Perhaps it is a shame that one must invest this kind of money to get a item that is put together so well, but I am relieved that in this world of mass production and disposable goods, such things still exist that are put together by hand, with skill and knowledge accumulated in over two centuries of practice.
The young associate at Shapur enthusiastically discusses the Hublot watches, and how they sell. He mentions the fact that many younger buyers are drawn to the Hublot pieces. This fact does not surprise me, save for the reality that Hublot watches are hard to come by, and you have to actively look for them. What I means is that most Hublot buyers learn about them through investigation and discovery. You’d have to be looking at a dedicated watch magazine to know about Hublot, or be lucky enough to visit one of the rare locations that carry them. Otherwise, the uninitiated consider something like Rolex, when the opportunity presents itself to buy a nice watch. Mr. Halimi of Hublot is particularly proud of the fact that Hublot buyers are watch lovers, learning about the brand, and making a conscious decision to acquire a Hublot after considering the alternatives (at least from a price perspective). This is certainly not how an average business person would respond, and I am comforted by the fact that Hublot, is not an average business. For it if was, my impression is that the watches would unfortunately not be the same (because quality and profitability are typically not in accord); another reason I am so drawn to the watch industry.
