Last night, Hublot celebrated the launch of its latest Dwyane Wade timepiece. The famed basketball star has been a brand ambassador for Hublot, ever since the Swiss watch brand became the Official Timekeeper of the Miami HEAT in 2011.
At the time, the pair celebrated their partnership with a sporty King Power “D-Wade” in 2011. But for his second watch, the famed basketball star’s has chosen the more sophisticated aesthetic of the Classic Fusion range.
The Classic Fusion Dwyane Wade features a sleek 45mm case made of polished black ceramic. The red, black and regal gold embellishments reflect the colors for which Dwyane 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 up to four watches.
As a special wedding gift for Dwyane and Gabrielle Union, Hublot also presented them with “something blue,” his & hers Hublot Big Bang Jeans timepieces.
Vincent Vuillaume, President of Hublot of America, and Dwyane unveiled the new timepiece for the first time during an exclusive dinner at OMAR’S in NYC’s Greenwich Village, which the brand’s closest friends, including Haute Time’s very own Kamal Hotchandani (pictured below).
