Hello Hublot fans,

I recently am hunting down a earliest version of the Hublot “Sapphire” releases back in the 2016

This is my first Hublot. 

I love this original 2016 first edition the best.. however when i do more research online..
I found some comes with crystal hour/minute/second hands while some other comes with metal hands..
Please kindly refers to the attached photos below..

please note the photos with the metal hands are of a same watch, the dial looks dark n light depends on lighting i guess..

btw these are photos i extracted from the internet and credit due to the copyright owners. thank you.
