King Power Black Mamba Watch Unveiled By Hublot.

Hublot selects Kobe Bryant as their new spokesman and unveils his new signature King Power Black Mamba Watch.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: This is no $15 Timex. You better have some serious coin if you are grabbing one of these limited edition 250 watches. 

Humblot is a Swiss luxury watch brand known for excellence and expensive-ass watches. They recently chose Kobe Bryant as their new spokesman. To celebrate the announcement Hublot also unveiled their new King Power Black Mamba watch. It will be Bryant’s signature timepiece with Hublot.

 

“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.

Jocks and Stiletto Jill had the scoop on the release and had all the details on the new Black Mamba watch below.

Hublot will release the “King Power Black Mamba”, worldwide. Features included in the watch, a snake around the counter at 9 o’clock and Kobe’s jersey number, “24”, over 6 o’clock. The King Power Black Mamba is a limited edition with only 250 watches being released. To celebrate the new collaboration, the Lakers superstar celebrated his new role with a haute fete on the rooftop of the London West Hollywood.

The presentation was followed by a basketball shoot-off with two children from After-School All Stars Los Angeles, a charitable beneficiary of the Kobe & Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation.  Simply by taking shots from a makeshift basketball court constructed over the hotel’s rooftop pool, the contest raised $30,000 for the program.

Afterwards, the brand hosted an intimate dinner in partnership with GQ that was attended by Zac Efron, Jimmy Kimmel, Mark Salling, Jesse Williams, Garcelle Beauvais, Brad Goreski, and Christos Garkinos.
