The high quality replica Hublot King Power 48mm Oceanographic 4000 watches is a rather unusual piece that’s mostly escaped collectors’ attention for several reasons. The first of these is that Hublot wasn’t — and isn’t — a dive watch brand. The firm sponsors just about everything that moves on land, including soccer, but hasn’t ventured much beneath the waves. When it does leave terra firma, it’s usually afloat, even if its name (the French for ‘porthole’) does encompass the world of diving as well as seafaring.
Another factor is that the timepiece in question has had no off-spring. Despite opening up several interesting technical avenues of development, it’s remained in splendid isolation. Then, too, Hublot didn’t really pull off the feat of being “first, unique, and different” here as it has done elsewhere: perfect fake watches allowing dives to depths of 4,000 metres or more were already available. Unkind souls may also note that the watch was launched 6 June 2011 as part of a partnership with a research project dubbed the Deep Sea Conference — and that a Rolex watch bears the same name. The comparison ends there, however: the 48-millimetre King Power Oceanographic 4000 is top US Hublot replica watches through and through.
Swiss made Hublot copy watches’ style signature is palpable everywhere you look: the six functional screws in their traditional locations to secure the bezel; the sharp-edged, angular case; the integrated strap (in rubber; what else?); the celebrated in-house One-Click interchange system; the protective side ‘ear’ lug at 9 o’clock; and so on.
That said, some of Hublot’s customary features are all the more surprising when found on a dive watch: the use of titanium and, even more unexpectedly, carbon fibre, and indeed composite fibre for the side lugs and inlays. Steel is generally preferred for dive replica watches for sale, being seen as the best compromise when it comes to withstanding pressure, wear, and corrosion, as well as being easy to machine; titanium has the annoying tendency to catch fire when being machined by any but the most skilled of technicians. Nevertheless, titanium can work for a dive watch designed for such great depths, provided the case is single-piece — a criterion Hublot duly took into account for its subsequent King Gold version.
The fact is that combining a range of materials on a single watch is always a risky business when it’s destined to descend to great depths: each material responds in a different way to torque and compression amid changes in critical variables such as temperature and above all, the pressure exerted by the water column. Another incidental feature is that the piece is one of the very few Hublots to feature a pin buckle. Professional dive fake watches online site with interchangeable straps are few and far between too: expert divers don’t usually bother with such frills and fancies, especially if they risk falling foul of the ISO 6525 standard requirement for strand of the bracelet to withstand a pulling force of some 20 kilogrammes.
The luxury replica watches is certified as being water resistant to 4,000 metres, but has in fact been tested to 5,000 metres in the laboratory. That puts it (more or less) in line with industry standards, which require the displayed characteristics to allow for an additional margin of 20%. This performance is made possible by a sapphire crystal no less than 6.5 millimetres thick and a screw-in caseback to the rear. The cheap super clone Hublot King Power 48mm Oceanographic 4000 watches is rare, atypical and a Hublot oddity.
