    Need help! IWC vs Hublot!

    Hi guys,

    I have to make a decision real soon here. I am a 29 year old watch noob, kind of a sporty guy (never wears suits etc mostly t-shirt and jeans), and I am deciding between two watches and would like to hear peoples input on anything like looks, mechanics, heritage, resale value, easy to sell, popularity or whatever! Or just tell me which one to get!

    The two options are the Hublot Luna Rosa (Luxury Watches in Stockholml) vs the IWC Aquatimer Jacques Costeau (http://watch-happening.blogspot.com/...ronograph.html).

    Which one should I get if price is secondary?! Help appreciated!

    Jonathan

    The hublot will not age well, that iwc is almost a modern classic and will be in five years.

    For me, the quality and styling of IWC is superior to Hubolt.

    Just from a pure looks standpoint, I'd go with the IWC all day long. Personally I'm just not into that "industrial" look that a lot of high end watches are going for.

    IWC.
    It will also wear better even if the H has more scratch resistance...

    Between the two, definitely the IWC. However if price is secondary then lots of options are available... such as the IWC Deep Two.

    I am sure the IWC movement is a 7750, a very common movement that can be found in watches costing 1/4 of this watch. I'd think the Hublot movement is not an in-house movement. Possibly a different layout of the 7750 layout. I'm sure you can find that out.

    The design of the watch itself is clearly more outstanding on the Hublot. I'd also much rather call that a design classic based on its design roots than the IWC. Many of the Hublots are very garish and brash. This one is extraordinary but not garish, except for the printing Luna Rossa on the dial.

    The case work is also clearly more elaborate on the Hublot. But the PVD coating might wear over time. They usually do. You then would have to take the coating off completely and either give it a re-polish or re-coat it. That will run around $800-1000.

    IWC clearly has the better reputation compared to Hublot. If that's important, go with the IWC. If you actually want to use it for diving or are just a lume freak (it has awesome lume) get the IWC. If you want the more special watch, get the Hublot.

    Thanks so much guys, even more advice would be appreciated. A bit surprised I must admit at how everyone is leaning towards the IWC so far, did not expect things to as onesided as they have been so far to be honest. I mean, does the Hublot have such a bad reputation compared to the IWC?

    IWC all day long. I dont find the Hublot attractive at all.
