Did I just go to Depeche Mode’s private concert by Hublot?


You’ve been kept down
You’ve been pushed ’round
You’ve been lied to
You’ve been fed truths
Who’s making your decisions?
You or your religion
Your government, your countries
You patriotic junkies

Where’s the revolution

How fitting are these lyrics in the wake of what is going on in our world today? I get goose bumps each time I listen to the song. We need each-other to make this world a better place, for us, our children and their children, one person at a time, one project at a time. One by one, we can do this together!

For one thing, we can start by supporting charity: water, a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. It is estimated that 663 million people (or 1 in 10 people) in the world lack access to safe drinking water – promoting disease, lack of safety, stagnation and destruction. For most of us living in developed countries, especially Switzerland, clean water is something we take for granted because it’s always been available to us in abundance. I don’t ever remember thinking about not having readily access to clean and drinkable water, humans’ primary source of life.

By now, you may be wondering how Depeche Mode is related to this topic? 

First of all, I still cannot believe I got to watch them perform Live in a private setting! I will never forget this experience, not to mention Dave Gahans sexy moves!

Our iconic 80’s band and Luxury watchmaker Hublot have been partners since 2010 and together they have endorsed Charity: Water on several occasions. They understand the gravity of the current situation as well as future repercussions if nothing gets done.

And what better and effective way to quick off the band’s new album Spirit and their upcoming Global Tour than by launching their limited edition Big Bang “watch for water” at Basel World, the leading tradeshow for watches? The sale of the watch will raise funds for Charity: Water.

For this new campaign, Hublot and Depeche Mode hope to bring clean water to 50,000 people around the world. “I am very excited to continue our partnership with Hublot and charity: water. For many years I have been an enthusiastic supporter of charity: water and I am delighted that with Hublot we can continue to support their mission of providing clean and safe drinking water for all.” said Martin Gore of Depeche Mode.

Be ready to purchase your watch as soon as the band begins its Global Spirit Tour on May 5th, 2017! Don’t wait because there are only 250 pieces!

And if you can, do not miss a chance to watch them Live – one of a kind performance by true performers!
