The Hublot Big Bang UNICO Chronograph Kobe "Vino" Bryant watch, reference number 413.CX.4723.PR.KOB15, was created in collaboration with NBA star Kobe Bryant. It is named “Vino” after Bryant’s on-court nickname. This is the first mechanical watch created to specifically time basketball – the retrograde chronograph is designed to time the two halves of a basketball game (48 minutes - length of a game - plus overtime). This model is presented in an edition limited to only 200 pieces and it fittingly comes in a wine box with a ceramic corkscrew.
The watch is presented with a black ceramic case that boasts see-through back featuring Kobe Bryant’s signature. The case is mounted onto a burgundy python leather strap with black rubber lining, secured on the wrist with a deployment clasp. This model is equipped with the HUB1262 movement that contains 44 jewels. The movement is wound automatically and builds up power reserve of 72 hours. The burgundy dial boasts a prominent basketball motif and features the following functions: off-centered hours and minutes, small seconds, and bi-retrograde chronograph. The watch is water-resistant to 100 meters.
This timepiece is offered in an unworn condition and includes the manufacturer’s box and papers.
