Kobe Bryant and luxury watchmaker Hublot announced their latest collaboration.
The Big Bang UNICO Chronograph Retrograde Kobe “Vino” Bryant is the second watch designed under Bryant’s name by the Swiss watch company. The watch debuted at a swanky event at a private winery in Napa Valley, which included a press conference.
Known as the “Big Bang Vino” for short, it is the first watch designed to time basketball. Bryant has been a Hublot brand ambassador since 2013.
Bryant explains where the elegant timepiece’s moniker comes from:
“When I joined the Hublot family, the Black Mamba was a natural fit, but we also discussed the relationship between basketball, watchmaking and wine; specifically, the dedication of the wine makers to making that perfect blend, the effort that goes into the maturation process and the attention to detail that goes into the art of watchmaking.”
