Hublot and Depeche Mode hosted a gala and auction last night in the historic Tsum building in Moscow to benefit charity: water. In total, over $1.4 million was raised to bring clean water to people in developing countries.
Says Martin: “I am particularly pleased that, as a band and with the support of our loyal friend Hublot, we can organise this exceptional auction to raise money for our friends at charity: water and contribute to making a real difference in countries struggling to survive without access to drinking water. The money raised should help to make a real difference.”
Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO, added: “This unique collaboration is part of our ongoing special relationship with Depeche Mode. We first met in 2010 and hit it off straight away. If our friendship can make a difference, then we must not hesitate since connection is all about sharing. If you don’t share, you miss out. Hublot is in a fortunate position, and has a duty to share some of its success with those who need it.”
