The Classic Fusion Kobe Bryant Herovillain.Luxury Swiss brand celebrates redesigned Beverly Hills boutique while honoring the dynamic career of Brand Ambassador, living legend Kobe Bryant.
luxury Swiss watch brand Hublot celebrated the launch of its latest timepiece with Brand Ambassador Kobe Bryant – the Classic Fusion Kobe Bryant HeroVillain – which coincided with the ribbon cutting ceremony of the newly redesigned Hublot Beverly Hills Boutique. Following the successful launch of the Big Bang UNICO Chronograph Retrograde Kobe “Vino” Bryant in 2015 and the King Power Black Mamba Chronograph in 2013, this is the brand’s third timepiece with the basketball legend.
The redesigned 1376 square foot store, among the brand’s first in the United States, is now a modern study in gray tonal textures and materials, including ebony wood paneled walls and doors; graphite leather wall accents and slate floors; stainless steel, glass, and hammered metal fixtures and watch cases; and distinctive yet refined repeated Hublot “H” logos integrated on glass panels inside the black stone façade. An enclosed VIP lounge area is in the rear of the store, offering an even more private experience for the brand’s most discerning clientele.
Marking their third collaborative delivery, Hublot unveils its latest efforts alongside brand ambassador, Kobe Bryant. The timepiece was officially revealed last month, coinciding with the ribbon cutting ceremony at Hublot’s redesigned Beverly Hills boutique.
During the event, Kobe shared, “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 Classic Fusion Kobe Bryant HeroVillain is limited to 24 units, available exclusively at Hublot’s Beverly Hills location. The watch boasts a masculine yet sophisticated black and gold design, as the dial appropriately features a snake appliqué to represent Kobe’s “Black Mamba” persona. The sapphire case in turn showcases a “KOB16” logo, while a black python strap with black stitching then completes the luxury wristwear.
