Luxury watchmaker Hublot is creating 12 “pop” versions of their very popular Big Bang series with one of my favourite bands, Depeche Mode. Each one of a kind watch will feature a different Depeche Mode album cover. They will be sold at auction with proceeds going to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
One of the most influential bands on the international electropop scene, this will be Depeche Mode’s first ever concert at the Royal Albert Hall. The band’s members are thrilled at the prospect. Not just because of the prestigious venue, but also because of the cause they have chosen to support. The event will raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust, an organization which provides help to adolescents with cancer in terms of treatment, research, education, family support and specialist diagnosis (www.teenagecancertrust.org).
To mark this special occasion, Hublot and Depeche Mode have decided to create a series of 12 unique watches, each of which will feature one of the band’s album covers on its dial. The watches will be sold at an auction at the beginning of February on a
dedicated website (link available at www.hublot.ch or www.depechemode.com from 1 February 2010). All proceeds from the sale will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust.
Martin L. Gore, on behalf of the band, declares : “As big fans of Hublot, we’re happy to be collaborating with them on such an important cause. We’re all honored to have these 12 unique pieces created by Hublot and are grateful that it will be in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust.”
