I stopped by the Hublot Boutique in Bal Harbour, Miami, and checked out some unique pieces that are mainly available only at authorized Hublot boutiques. As you remember, last week in Beverly Hills, we got a first look at the King Power Black Mamba that Hublot created for Kobe Bryant. During this visit we got to see the King Power WBC that Hublot created for Lennox Lewis.
This piece is also special, especially for any true boxing fan. This watch is a true collector’s piece, the result of Hublot’s partnership with the World Boxing Council (WBC) that saw the creation of 12 one-of-a-kind King Power watches. They dedicated the watches to 12 boxers: Lennox Lewis, George Foreman, Sugar Ray Leonard, Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Oscar de la Hoya, Jeff Fenech, Larry Holmes, Julio César Chávez, Tommy Hearns, Roberto Durán and Marvelous Marvin Hagler. That means the King Power WBC Lennox Lewis watch is 1 of 1.
These one-off pieces were auctioned off last year, raising US$1,000,000 for the WBC’s charities. The King Power WBC Lennox Lewis was purchased at auction last year for $105,000.
Along with the watch, you get a Lennox Lewis signed boxing robe, along with a certificate of authenticity. Specs of the watch are as follows:
