ZF, also known as Z factory, holds a prominent position in our market and boasts one of the longest histories in watch manufacturing. With the closure of several old factories like Noob, V6, VS, and JF, ZF has emerged as the largest watch manufacturer in our market. Surprisingly, during the raid in 2021, ZF experienced minimal impact, which comes as great news to us. This means that we can still acquire the finest replicas of IWC and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15400 and 15500 from ZF. However, post-raid, some ZF watches may not always be readily available. For instance, the Royal Oak Extra-thin 15202 and Patek Philippe Nautilus Moon Phase 5712 replica are frequently out of stock. Even when ordering directly from ZF, there is often a significant wait time associated with these models.
Regarding the replica Patek Philippe Moon Phase 5712, ZF had an unusual practice of selling it in conjunction with their Submariner watches. This meant that in order to purchase a Patek 5712, one had to also buy one of their Submariners. This approach seemed quite absurd. It is possible that ZF had an excess stock of Submariner watches that were not selling well individually, so they bundled them together with the Patek Philippe 5712 to boost sales. Surprisingly, they did not reduce the overall price despite this bundling. Consequently, the demand for their Submariner watches still remained lackluster.
I would like to introduce a Hublot replica watch today, which happens to be the first time ZF has produced a replica for this brand. Previously, V6 factory was known for producing top-quality Hublot replicas. This specific Hublot watch belongs to the Big Bang Unico collection. Personally, I don’t believe Hublot Unico is a highly sought-after watch among watch enthusiasts, so I am unsure why ZF invested significant resources into making this particular model. In my opinion, it would have been more beneficial for them to focus on creating the best replicas of some of the basic Big Bang models, which are currently in higher demand. Regarding the Hublot Unico, take note of its skeletonized dial. I find it doubtful that ZF would be able to replicate the dial of a genuine Hublot Unico with the same level of accuracy.
Additionally, I must mention that the replica Hublot watch in question is quite sizable, measuring 44mm in diameter and a substantial 17mm in thickness. Not everyone can comfortably wear such a large and robust timepiece. The dial, showcasing a captivating skeleton design, serves as the primary attraction for those who still appreciate this bold piece. However, it is also this dial that exposes the weaknesses of the Hublot Unico. With a price exceeding 600 USD, this replica Hublot is more expensive compared to previous versions made by other factories. ZF has made notable updates to the movement, aiming to achieve a closer resemblance to the genuine 1280 Hublot in-house movement.
