Swiss watchmaker Nubeo is hoping to score big with the launch of its Black Mamba collection, a range of sporty timepieces produced with NBA star Kobe Bryant. Named for Bryant’s on-court moniker, the Black Mamba features a slick titanium case, black rubber strap and contemporary curves. Sapphires and emeralds optional. Aside from Bryant’s endorsement, the collection’s other draw is its 131-part case, which Nubeo claims is the world’s most complex. Prices start at $20,900.
