Wondering if I can get some opinions going. I have always had a thing for Hublots and have owned a number of them over the years. Original Big Bang (44), Unico (45), etc. I currently own a red Orlinski and just found myself picking this all-black Integral up.
Perhaps to my surprise, what I found over the last few days wearing it, is that it’s kind of an “un-Hublot” Hublot. At 42 mm, and with the integrated bracelet, feels surprisingly understated. And I think I struggle with what I always enjoyed about Hublot - the loud almost obnoxious nature, which however, has its appeal. As “sophisticated” as this piece feels, it’s almost anticlimactic to what Hublot normally delivers on.
So I’m kind of reevaluating. Should I keep or let go. As many of you know, there’s always a balance in the collection of fun, serious, valuable, etc. In my recent years, I found myself wanting to have very curated pieces that stand on their own. And so I was hoping to get some opinions about this very piece. What would you do?
Many thanks and for those of us in the US, Happy 4th!
