Yesterday, March 20, 2013, Luxury watch manufacturer Hublot had a charity event at the very cool boutique London Hotel in West Hollywood CA.
This event also marked a very historic occasion for Hublot as they named their newest brand ambassador, NBA Legend Kobe Bryant. This event shot off when Hublot Brand President, Ricardo Guadalupe presented Bryant with the Limited Edition King Power Black Mamba. This watch is limited to 250 pieces. This was followed up by an exciting basketball shoot-off with two children from After-School All Stars Los Angeles, a charitable beneficiary of the Kobe & Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation. Taking shots from a makeshift basketball court constructed over the hotel’s rooftop pool, the playful contest raised $30,000 for the program. Guadalupe presented the check to the Bryants and After-School All Stars as the crowd cheered.
Hublot became the official timekeeper of the LA Lakers in January and this new partnership with Kobe Bryant further strengthens the relationship and awareness of both brands on a Global level.
