    Help me pick my first watch. IWC vs Hublot

    Hey guys,

    As the title says, not the biggest watch connoisseur by any means. But have always admired a goodlooking watch. I am in the position of being able to receive a watch at the moment and I have narrowed down my search to the following two types;

    Can you guys, who obviously know more than myself in these matters give me some advice as to the pro's and con's of either, or better yet which is just simply the better watch?


    IWC: Portugieser Automatic : IW500703
    OR

    Hublot: Classif Fusion Ultra Thin 515.NX.1270.LR


    I was initially eyeing the Hublot at first, but feel as this is just a fad watch/or in the moment look at me momment. The IWC seems like it will last longer in the long run, in terms of style and elegance.

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry wont let me post links to the watches!

    While it's a respectable looking hublot, you're not going to find many here respecting them :)

    chalk up another IWC vote

    Hublot is very much a Marmite watch, you either love them or hate them!!

    If you love them then go for one, but the majority of feedback on here will be negative.

    IWC are more of a watch collectors brand with history and classic looks, and the Portuguese is the most popular model, so will keep the most money in it.

    But best advice is try both on and buy the one you like the best, its your watch!!

    IWC not because it's more authentic history etc but just because it looks better and better resale if you're concerned about it.

    this two don't even compare.

    I believe Hublot is a massive tarp.
    i have many many memory with many watches, but the only one that is worthy is my all time favorite - the Tudor Submariner 79090.

    That, right there, is the best advice.

    I don't know if it's just me, or what. But that screw in the top right would drive me completely insane. Other than that, it is a beautiful watch.
