Swiss luxury brand, Hublot, after becoming the LA Lakers “official timekeeper” in January, have taken the relationship a step further by announcing Kobe Bryant as its new brand ambassador and unveiled a limited edition timepiece called the King Power Black Mamba.
Bryant joins an all-star lineup of athletes that includes Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, soccer player Diego Maradona and fellow NBA player, Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat.
Now about the watch- The watch is designed full of Kobe-specific details, including the number 24 affixed at the 6 o’clock spot, a silver-colored snake curling around the counter at 9 o’clock, Lakers-appropriate gold-plated hands and purple number indicators, and a rubber strap accented with black python. The King Power Black Mamba sells for $25,200 but because it is limited edition, one will have to move with the speed and agility of a NBA player. There’s only 250 being released worldwide, well 249 considering that Kobe himself is already sporting one.
