Who Wants to Pay $27,500 for a Dwyane Wade-Designed Watch?
Lets say you're the biggest Miami Heat fan ever. You own every Heat star's signature shoe in every available color. You have signed memorabilia dating back to '88. You even have Chris Bosh's jersey in all three shades. But do you possess a $27,500 limited-edition watch designed by Dwyane Wade? Probably not yet, but it could be yours soon.
The style-conscious shooting guard has teamed up with high-end watchmaker Hublot to design his own timepiece. Featuring Wade's number 3 on the face and his logo, the watch comes in Heat red and black. The texture of the face takes it cues from a basketball, while stitching in the band is supposed to recall a basketball net.
Though Wade is not nicknamed "the King," the model is dubbed "King Power." Hope LeBron doesn't mind.
The watch will sell for approximately $27,500, which is the price of a relatively nice car, and probably more than all of a devoted Heat fan's entire memorabilia collection combined. However, only 500 will be produced, so they're reserved for the most exclusive Wade and watch enthusiasts.
They'll be on sale soon. Wade has a long history as a spokesman for the luxury watchmaker, but this is his first design collaboration with the brand.
