It has been two years since the famous British electronic music band Depeche Mode officially expressed its partnership with Hublot in Berlin in 2012. In the past two years, both parties have held many Charity-related auctions.
Incredible personality and talent in different fields come together because of a common cause. The will and determination to create a meaningful global event. Depeche Mode and Hublot jointly announced in Berlin that they will host a non-profit charity fundraising event ‘Charity: Water’ for developing countries to bring them safe drinking water.
This unique initiative is part of the 2013-2014 Delta Tour of the Depeche Mode Band. Tsum, a recent building in the heart of Moscow, hosted a grand charity auction dinner by Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe and Depeche Mode. Of course, the theme of this auction is still ‘water source’
It is reported that on March 7, 2014, Depeche Mode held a concert in the ‘Olympic Pavilion’ in Moscow, and the scene was extremely hot. As a partner, Hublot also used this concert to incorporate charity auctions into it.
The three watches auctioned on the day were all presented by Depeche Mode. The first is a special limited edition Big Bang Depeche Mode watch launched by Hublot in 2013. This watch is also specially customized for the 2013-2014 Delta Tour of the Depeche Mode band. The other is a new watch that will meet you in 2014. In addition, there is another lot that is worthy of everyone’s collection. It is a guitar and a Big Bang Depeche watch signed by Depeche Mode.
Depeche Mode member Martin Gore said that participating in such a meaningful event was very enjoyable. It is of far-reaching significance for everyone to have the support of a cool brand like Hublot and work together to develop charity. Many countries are now facing the problem of contaminated water sources. We will use the funds raised to help these people.
Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe added that working with the Depeche Mode band was very enjoyable and that the charity event on ‘Water Sources’ was only part of our cooperation. Hublot and Depeche Mode got together in 2010, and we feel that this cross-border cooperation can make a difference. Of course, the facts have also proven that our choice is correct.
