Scope the new Hublot King Power “Dwyane Wade” edition — the watch we’ve been waiting for since Hublot announced Dwyane Wade as its official Ambassador earlier this year. Actually, I knew this day was coming when I spied Dwyane Wade wearing a Hublot watch in early 2010 — Hublot Chief JC-Biver is never one to pass up a high profile Ambassador who is also a Hublotista.
As for the King Power Dwyane Wade watch, it is a decent take on Hublot’s “King Power” watch, with a black-white-red “Miami Heat” color scheme, including a red chrono-pusher, red outer bezel flange, and matching subdials, all of which set-off nicely against the 48mm bead-blasted black ceramic case. I like the strap pairing, too, a leather+rubber strap with “net” style cross-stitching. Dwyane Wade’s jersey number (3) is also featured at 3 o’clock.
