SNAKES ON A WATCH

Plaza Watch International - - Display Case -

Kobe Bryant is the lat­est in a long line of sports­peo­ple to be hon­oured with a luxury wrist­watch cre­ated and ded­i­cated to his tal­ent. In his case, Hublot’s King Power Black Mamba is a beast of a time­piece.

Bryant, like any good brand am­bas­sador should be, is clearly en­am­oured of his new watch, “My motto is to feel con­fi­dent and al­ways on the move. This is why I did not hes­i­tate for a sec­ond about join­ing the Hublot fam­ily. What is more, I love my King Power Black Mamba watch, which sym­bol­ises the com­bi­na­tion of fine ex­per­tise used in watch­mak­ing and my favourite sport, bas­ket­ball.”

To cel­e­brate this part­ner­ship, Hublot un­veiled a limited edi­tion King Power Black Mamba, which was cre­ated spe­cially for Bryant in Los An­ge­les. The col­lec­tion, which is limited to just 250 pieces in the world, in­cludes sev­eral el­e­ments in hon­our of Kobe's ca­reer and bas­ket­ball in gen­eral. The num­ber 24, clearly vis­i­ble on the watch, was the num­ber he wore on his shirt and the dial tinted in pur­ple and gold cel­e­brates the col­lec­tive achieve­ments and suc­cess of the "pur­ple and gold dy­nasty" of the Los An­ge­les Lak­ers. A black mamba, his nick­name, snakes across the open dial, an el­e­ment that adds a mys­te­ri­ous and charis­matic di­men­sion. To com­plete the de­sign of the time­piece, a black python-skin bracelet stitched on black rub­ber, and a case back en­graved with Kobe Bryant's sig­na­ture are faith­ful to the con­cepts dear to Hublot: “The Art of Fu­sion”.
