Hublot Big Bang Aero Bang Depeche ModeHublot and Depeche Mode have come together in a joint fundraising initiative to benefit charity: water, a non-profit organization which brings clean, safe drinking water to the developing world. In honor of the partnership, Hublot designed the limited-edition Big Bang Aero Bang Depeche Mode — with a portion of the proceeds of each watch directly benefiting the charity.

The black ceramic timepiece is made even more unique through the Clous Pyramide decoration on the bezel and strap, a series of spiked studs à la punk rock style. After kicking off in Nice, France on May 4, the Delta Machine tour continued in the United States on August 22, with a first stop in Detroit and a series of shows throughout North America, including an appearance at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on September 6. The U.S. leg will end in Austin, TX on November 11th at the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

This is the second charitable collaboration between Hublot and Depeche Mode; the two first came together in 2010 to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust at a benefit show at London’s Royal Albert Hall. On that occasion, Hublot developed 12 unique timepieces with the 12 Depeche Mode studio album covers on each respective dial. Detailed specs for the new watch are below the photos.
