This ultra-limited run of Hublot timepieces has its design inspired by the WBC Championship belt and is given the name the King Power “Knockout” watch. Based on the normally big 48mm King Power case, finds itself very appropriately sized for the occasion. Using the iconic green of the real WBC championship belt for the details and crocodile leather strap, with Hublot’s signature 18-karat “King Gold”. As with all King Power watches, the Knockout WBC edition features a chronograph. Each edition includes a unique WBC-stamped caseback which includes the name of the boxer it’s dedicated to. Below are pictures from the press event, featuring many of the legendary boxers and Hublot frontman and former CEO Jean-Claude Biver.
