By  |  0 Comments

March Madness is here! To celebrate we wanted pay homage to some of our favorite NBA players luxury watches of choice.

 

Lebron James

The Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Limited Edition LeBron James is a beautiful custom made watch.  This exact piece was created for Labron James, but is based on the standard unlimited version of the Royal Oak Offshore timepiece.

This watch has an 18-carat pink gold case, glare proof sapphire crystal, and the back casing is engraved “Royal Oak Offshore Limited Edition Lebron James”, LBJ signature printed in blue on the sapphire crystal.  It also has a  titanium bezel, pink gold applied Arabic numerals, and a hand-stitched “large square scale” grey alligator strap with 18-carat pink gold pin buckle.

This 44 mm watch is unique because of its conservative design and no reference to Labrons profession.  His Royal Oak has elements of embellished rose gold, but is understated for a Royal Oak fashioning colors of grey, black rose gold and titanium which none of these colors represent his current or previous teams.

When you look at his fashion style though, this watch matches up to his suits and casual apparel like gold with purple, truly a royal setup.

Kobe Bryant

The LE Big Bang UNICO Chronograph Retrograde Kobe “Vino” Bryant is a slightly new and extravagant venture for both brands.  This watch is available in Ceramic and King Gold, it features a sleek design that reflects Kobe’s personal style off the court, but also has features relating to the game.

The Chronograph Retrograde is designed to time the two halves of a basketball game – an innovative concept that Hublot has produced specifically for this timepiece.  The dial features a prominent basketball design integrated into a matte burgundy multilayer disc.  On the case back, a green glass in rare earth minerals with an interior anti- reflective treatment carries Kobe Bryant’s signature.  Available in two versions, 18K King Gold and Black Ceramic, each piece will be delivered with two interchangeable straps and is limited to 100 pieces.

This 45.5mm Big Bang “Vino” has a name that attests to the power of the player.  When asked about the name of the watch Kobe said  “A friend of mine, a copywriter by trade, came up with the nickname ‘Vino’ because he said I just keep getting better and better with time,and that’s where the name for the watch came from.”

Dwayne Wade

Based on the Classic Fusion model the Hublot Dwayne Wade is a magnificent custom piece.  A departure from his first athletic timepiece, the King Power D-Wade, the Classic Fusion Dwyane Wade exudes an elegant, sophisticated aesthetic with a sleek 45mm case made of polished black ceramic.

The red, black and regal gold embellishments reflect the colors for which the Miami Heat is known.  The dial features a Dwyane Wade logo integrated into the counter at 3 o’clock, and the printed Dwyane Wade signature at 6 o’clock.  The red and black watch box resembles a luggage trunk; the type of traveling accessory Dwyane would take on the road, and can securely fit multiple watches.  This watch is a beautiful testament to Dwaynes career and team spirit more than his style, although it is truly an exquisite piece that compliments any attire.  Hublot, which also serves as the Official Timekeeper of the Miami HEAT, has been a proud partner of Dwyane Wade since 2011.
