Earlier this year WatchPro unveiled its Watches of the Year 2012 – the 10 winning timepieces and 90 highly commended watches that we felt boasted commercial appeal, innovation and had wowed consumers and retailers alike over the past 12 months.
Highly commended for WatchPro Rising Star of the Year 2012 was the Hip Hop Sportsman Collection.
Hip Hop watches were founded in Italy more than 25 years ago and became well known in the 1980s. The collection has steadily adapted over the years and has recently launched back in the UK.
With more than 20 standard strap colours that are also interchangeable, the range has included everything from watches with a velveteen feel to those that glow in the dark. The straps are even infused with bubblegum-like scents. Hip Hop’s most recent collection — the Sportsman — is a fashionable take on chronograph timepieces, with an oversized dial featuring day, seconds and minute sub-dials.
We at WatchPro love the brand’s playful demeanour and its constantly updated collections and know it has everything to make it a hit in the UK.
