Swiss made replica Hublot UK just made a watch with Nespresso – which is a little bit like the time JNCO made jeans in collaboration with Goldfish, or when Dolce and Gabbana made a refrigerator with Smeg: Confusing and unnecessary for the most part.
But if you look beyond the initial shock factor of this collaborative release there is some pretty cool material innovation at play. The perfect fake Hublot Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin is the first watch to be made using recycled Nespresso aluminum capsules and coffee grounds.
In fact, Nespresso have been out here mastering the art of recycling since 1991. Back in the early ’90s they developed a recycling system to separate the aluminum from the coffee grounds, enabling each component to be repurposed.
But back to the Swiss movement replica Hublot, which I’ll break down nice and slow because it’s a little…unusual. The case, the bezel, the crown and the pusher are made from recycled aluminum. A healthy 28% of the aluminum composite used to make the case comes from actual Nespresso coffee capsules.
Used coffee grounds from the Nespresso capsules are somehow transformed into watch straps (I don’t know exactly how, so you will have to use your imagination here). The high quality replica Hublot’s strap formula includes 4.1 percent coffee grounds and 8.2 percent recycled white rubber. There is also an additional strap included made from 100 percent recycled fabric which is composed of five percent coffee grounds and 95 percent recycled polyester.
The material composite is anodized in the very vibrant Hublot/Nespresso green, then satin finished and polished. I will say that the uniformity of color on this watch is impressive. Well, I haven’t seen it in real life, but luxury super clone Hublot UK has a knack for this kind of all-over color effect, so I believe the images! And I’m certain that achieving uniformity was no easy task given the various materials and alloys used.
At 42mm x 14.5mm, the 1:1 fake Hublot Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin sits somewhere in the middle of the Hublot diameter spectrum. It comes equipped with the usual Big Bang Unico openwork automatic chronograph movement (Caliber HUB1280). All 354 components of it!
Oh and a very important final detail: the Nespresso logo on the crown. Some may say we’ve reached peak capitalism, but the cross-branding on this copy watch for sale is, at least, pretty low-key.
