Hublot has celebrated the launch of its latest timepiece with Brand Ambassador Kobe Bryant – the Hublot Classic Fusion Kobe Bryant HeroVillain replica watch– which coincided with the ribbon cutting ceremony of the newly redesigned Hublot Beverly Hills Boutique.
On 18 May 2016, Jean- François Sberro, Managing Director Hublot of America, and Greg Simonian, Owner of Hublot Beverly Hills boutique, hosted an intimate ribbon cutting ceremony and watch unveiling at the Hublot Beverly Hills boutique with Kobe Bryant, in honor of the boutique’s complete redesign and the NBA star’s long time partnership with Hublot. Guests, including press and friends of the brand, gathered at the Hublot boutique at 9470 Brighton Way, as Kobe Bryant, Jean-François Sberro and Greg Simonian cut the ribbon.
Following the successful launch of the mens fake 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.
Featuring a self-winding moon-phase movement, the Classic Fusion Kobe Bryant HeroVillain will be available on a black python strap with black stitching, an echo of Hublot’s 10 Year ALL BLACK anniversary concept.
Guests were then invited inside where Kobe Bryant was presented with his newest limited edition watch, known as the Classic Fusion Kobe Bryant HeroVillain, which is the star’s third timepiece with Hublot replica watch.
