To commemorate their third collaborative project, Hublot unveils its latest delivery alongside brand ambassador and retired NBA legend, Kobe Bryant. The timepiece was officially revealed some hours back, coinciding with the ribbon cutting ceremony at Hublot’s redesigned Beverly Hills boutique.
During the event, Kobe stated, “I’m honored to celebrate the launch of my third Hublot timepiece as I continue my pursuit of excellence and reflect on my career. The Classic Fusion Kobe Bryant Herovillain symbolizes my life as a Herovillain during my 20-year basketball career, as I strive to channel my fears and doubts into strength and determination. When I joined the Hublot family in 2013, it was a natural fit and I’m thrilled to share this special occasion here in Los Angeles today.”
The collaborative timepiece boasts a masculine yet sophisticated black and gold design, as the dial appropriately features a snake applique to represent Kobe’s “Black Mamba” persona. The sapphire case in turn showcases a “KOB16” logo, while a black python strap with black stitching rounds out the luxury timepiece. The Classic Fusion Kobe Bryant “HeroVillain” timepiece is limited to just 24 units, and each piece is engraved with individual numbering spanning from 1/24 to 24/24, with Kobe owning a special #24 edition. The watch is available exclusively at Hublot’s newly redesigned Beverly Hills Boutique.
