If I were to make a bet, I would gamble most people are going to come down on the side of AP. Truth is, they’re both fine watches but neither is what I would consider a bargain. None of that matters though because at the price range they sell for, there are no bargains. Buy what you like best.
If it were me, I’d take the AP for the bracelet. It’s a nice bracelet.

Ultimately - comes does to which one works better on the wrist and which you like more.
Personally, neither one speaks to me aesthetically and I think there are better watches out there, but if this is the style you like - both are very "in" right now with some crowds.
I find AP finish and movement detail to be superior. Also, like AP pushers more. AP also has better readability. (I do love a tapisserie dial on AP RO, but on ROO the dial texture detail gets lost due to size of pattern)
The 44mm Hublot was powered by HUB4100 movt, which is modified ETA and not all that interesting. (now if this was 46mm Unico Black Magic - the movt there is pretty nice, w better PR and flyback).
AP brand is superior and their credentials are superb. Personally though, give me a Royal Oak Chrono anyday of the week over the other 2, but of course it's an entirely different watch style and statement.
