With Depeche Mode, we have a deep respect for what the band represents in terms of its music and the messages which it conveys to the public via its albums. We also wanted to create a fusion combining the talent, passion and fame of each of these stars, joining forces and supporting a common cause. And so fans can look forward to an album, a world tour and a limited edition fake watch to mark the launch of a fundraising campaign for charity: water, as water is the source of everything”, declared Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO.
