Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman of Hublot : “ No Water, no Life! Water is life and water should be available to everybody. Nobody should suffer from a lack of water. That’s why we try to help to share water. Sharing water means sharing life and sharing love ."
Depeche Mode lead vocalist Martin Gore continued, “ I have personally been a supporter and advocate of charity: water for a while now, so I’m thrilled that we as a band can expand our support for the organization and help to make significant difference in places around the world struggling without a proper supply of drinking water .”
The unique initiative is part of the Depeche Mode 2013-2014 Delta Machine Tour. As Charity Partner, Hublot has designed a watch especially for this history-making collaboration: the Limited Edition Big Bang Depeche Mode. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each watch will go directly to charity: water.
