    yes and no...

    V6 has far better decorated movement, and nice raised crystal height. I can't speak for all v1 but my version had an uneven height while my 4 V6s all have nice even raised crystals

    V1 has much better double AR, bezel teeth, and rubber chrono pushers

    Thank you for a very informative post, JJ69. Hope you're still around.

    Has anyone ordered a HBB from Tony @ Asian7750 ? I am about to make my first purchase and what I have gathered after reading through this post is; I need to get the high beat A7750 to avoid problems. Would appreciate any inputs, this will be the first time I will purchase a rep.

    What's the difference between the Big Bang V6 and V6.5? The amount of information here is so limited :(

    Like I answered you on the other thread, both V6 and V6.5 are from the same maker, the V6 factory. The V6.5 is an update of the V6, replacing the crystal with blueish AR on the V6 with the colourless AR crystal in the V6.5. Other than this fact, all other specs are the same.

    Besides, most dealers should be holding on to the most recent version which is the V6.5.

    There's actually quite a lot of information around if you bother to read and research more.
    :wink:

    Maybe whatever info I have found is only relavant to V6 and not 6.5. But isn't there the flaw of the 4 ticks instead of 3 on the 6.5?

    Actually differences between V6 and V6.5 was already discussed quite a lot, but maybe not in this thread. And like I said, they are the same, just with an updated crystal. If the V6.5 models have 4 ticks, the V6 models would have them too.

    Anyway, not all models have the 4 ticks instead of 3, only some models, which in this case also includes the one that I'm trying to get, the RG/RG matte black dial model. If you want the closest model to gen, look for the SS/SS one, it has the closest weight to the gen. Besides, I don't really care about this flaw :D

    The good thing about Hublot if that there are so may editions that small details may exist in the gen, or even if they don't 99.9% of the population wouldn't have a clue about it
