After announcing NBA star Kobe Bryant as its newest brand ambassador on Wednesday (March 19), luxury watch company Hublot unveils the "Black Mamba" Chronograph as part of their King Power series of timepieces.
Bryant joins Heat guard Dwayne Wade and Jamaica's Usain Bolt, among others, as the latest edition to the Swiss watch brand's roster of sports stars representing the company. “Bryant was the perfect choice for Hublot—a brand known for its precision and excellence, traits that have characterized the basketball icon’s celebrated career,” said Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot. The two have also partnered for Kobe and Vanessa's Bryant Family Foundation, which offers assistance to the youth and families in need.
The watch includes appropriately placed purple and gold accents over a black python snakeskin band. It also features a HUB 4248 automatic chronograph with Satin-finished gold plated appliques and gold plated hands with black luminescent. Kobe's signature Hublot is a limited edition and will be available exclusively at select Hublot boutiques.
