In 2011, Dwayne Wade was officially named a brand ambassador for Hublot watches. Hublot is also the official timekeeper of the Miami Heat. Dwayne Wade’s first limited edition Hublot known as the King Power “D-Wade” was a huge success!
Now three years later in 2014, Hublot has released another limited edition watch known as the the Classic Fusion Dwayne Wade.
This watch is limited to 250 pieces for the world and more classic and sophisticated than the original D-Wade from 2011.
According to Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe, “It is through these collaborations that Hublot brings the ‘Art of Fusion’ to the world of sport. Hublot has a strong history with Dwyane, our Brand Ambassador since 2011, and we’re thrilled to continue this relationship. The Classic Fusion Dwyane Wade reflects Dwyane’s passion for style and luxury timekeeping. It was a pleasure to partner with him on this magnificent piece.”
In this new limited edition piece, Dwayne Wade’s iconic colors of red, black and gold are incorporated. The 45 mm case is crafted out of polished black ceramic. The dial highlights 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 up to four watches .
In the words of NBA Great Dwayne Wade, “Fashion and style have always been important to me; they are part of my day-to-day life. Working with Hublot over the years has allowed me to incorporate my own personal sense of style into my designs. This partnership has brought a much deeper understanding and appreciation for the watchmaking industry, and I’m thrilled to share my vision with the ultimate Swiss watchmaker.”
