Red bow at Hublot's. The newborn is the Big Bang UNICO "Vino". Named after the basketball Nba legend's nickname, Kobe Bryant who, at 34, is living a second youth and, like the wine, gets better over time.

This is the second timepiece the Swiss brand has produced with Bryant. On the occasion of his 2013 ambassadorship announcement, the King Power Black Mamba Chronograph was launched. That is Bryant's second nickname, inspired by the power and the precision of the snake from "Kill Bill".

Presented by Hublot's CEO, Ricardo Guadalupe, in a private wine cellar in Napa Valley, the watch is the world's first mechanical timekeeper specifically designed to time the two halves of a basketball game.

"The winemakers' dedication to the search for the perfect blend, the effort in the ripeness process and the attention to detail are typical of the watchmaking art" declared Bryant.

The Big Bang UNICO Chronograph Retrograde Kobe "Vino" Bryant is available in "Ceramic" and "King Gold". The dial shows a protruding basketball connected to a multilayer disc, the watch's strap and stitching are burgundy. On the case back, a green glass in rare earth minerals with an interior anti-reflective treatment carries the champion's signature. Characterized by a refined design, each watch is delivered with two interchangeable straps: one in black natural rubber with burgundy stitching, the other one in python skin with burgundy stitching.

In brief, it's not just a watch, but a luxury accessorize, perfect for fashion, wine and especially sport lovers.
