The Hublot Nastie Bang Honors the Romanian Legend

You don't have to be of a past generation or a hardcore sports fan to think that the Hublot Nastie Bang is awesome, but it definitely wouldn't hurt. Hublot is celebrating the Romanian tennis great Ilie Nastase (Nastie) by releasing a limited-edition watch in his name.

The Hublot Nastie Bang screams "tennis" with its tennis ball seconds counter on the face. To further delight tennis fans, there is a second counter on the face which keeps track of times in tennis points (15, 30, 40). The backside of the watch shows Nastie in his natural element, looking as if he is about to crush a forehand. I will fully admit that I am not the biggest tennis nut, but I love seeing older athletes honored like this. These watches are available now and are limited to a supply of 132, or the number of tennis titles that Ilie Nastase won in his career. Stats for Tennis Champ Timepieces Trending: Older & Mild
