Cast your eye towards Hollywood to learn which watches celebrities are giving their nod of approval to.
The Hublot King Power Black Mamba is strapped securely to Kobe Bryant’s wrist, giving him all the technology he needs to time and monitor any basketball game (when he's not actively shooting threes or dunking on a fellow opponent). The strap on this Hublot consists of a cool combination of rubber and python.
