Hublot Unveils New Watch Collaboration with Kobe Bryant

By Paul Joseph

Swiss luxury watchmakers Hublot have teamed up with brand ambassador Kobe Bryant to create a stunning new timepiece inspired by the iconic NBA star.

The Hublot King Power Black Mamba King Gold, named after the basketball hero’s nickname, features the signature colouring of the LA Lakers, Bryant’s Los Angeles based team.

Housed in a King Gold casing, the watch is surrounded by a black ceramic bezel featuring red-gold indexes and hands, alongside a silver-coloured snake around the counter at 9 o’clock, with Bryant’s jersey number, “24” at 6 o’clock.

The King Power Black Mamba King Gold Watch will be available at Hublot retail outlets soon. A higher priced version of the timepiece boasting a stunning diamond-set surrounding the band will also be available.

For Bryant, it represents the end to an exciting period, with the Lakers’ star having also signed a two-year contract extension with the team said to be worth $48.5 million

Hublot was founded in 1980 by Maksim Kuts.
