Last night, luxury Swiss watch brand Hublot celebrated the launch of its first timepiece with the Los Angeles Lakers – the King Power “Los Angeles Lakers” – the Official Watch of LA’s famed basketball team. This is Hublot’s first timepiece with the renowned basketball team since Hublot became the Official Timekeeper of the Los Angeles Lakers in January 2013. Boasting 16 NBA titles, the Los Angeles Lakers are among the most successful and storied franchises in the NBA, and one of the most popular teams in the world. In the heart of the city, a Lakers game effortlessly fuses basketball with fashion, celebrity, luxury and excitement.
Lakers star player and Hublot Brand Ambassador, Kobe Bryant, joined in the celebration with Hublot Partners John and Greg Simonian to unveil the new timepiece to the public for the first time. Four Laker Girls assisted in the unveiling of the timepiece, in addition to Lakers Legend James Worthy. As a Lakers Hall of Famer, Worthy is credited as one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History. Worthy was selected #1 overall in the 1982 draft and was the 1988 NBA Finals MVP, as well as a seven-time NBA All-Star.
