Hublot Spirit Big Bang Depeche Mode: A Memento Mori Masterpiece for Time and the Planet

Where music, timekeeping, and environmental action collide in a limited-edition statement piece.

The Hublot Spirit Big Bang Depeche Mode is a statement piece woven with time, music, and environmental consciousness. This limited-edition collaboration between watchmaker Hublot and iconic British band Depeche Mode transcends mere aesthetics, embodying the “Memento Mori” philosophy – “remember you must die.” It’s a call to live life fully while reflecting on its fleeting nature and protecting the planet for future generations.

This isn’t the first time Hublot and Depeche Mode have joined forces for good. Their long-standing partnership, now spanning 14 years, has raised over $2.3 million for environmental and humanitarian causes. With the release of Depeche Mode’s 15th studio album, “Memento Mori,” and its subsequent world tour, the collaboration takes on a new dimension. This time, the focus is on supporting Conservation Collective, a global charity tackling plastic pollution at its source.

The Hublot Spirit Big Bang Depeche Mode itself is a captivating embodiment of “Memento Mori.” The 42mm sand-blasted and polished black ceramic case houses the self-winding HUB1710_SD calibre movement. The dial, adorned with the band’s logo and pyramid-shaped studs, features a striking detail: a skull motif intertwined with an hourglass, symbolizing the passage of time and the preciousness of life. But time isn’t all that’s fleeting. Plastic pollution is another crucial element the watch addresses. One of its two interchangeable straps is crafted from recycled materials and Velcro, highlighting Conservation Collective’s fight against plastic waste.

Owning this limited-edition piece (only 100 available) goes beyond mere watch collecting. It’s a declaration of shared values with Depeche Mode and Hublot, a commitment to living consciously and protecting the planet. Each watch comes with a unique surprise: a 10-inch vinyl single of Depeche Mode’s “Wagging Tongue,” pressed using green energy and recycled PVC.

But the real impact lies beyond the watch itself. The funds raised through sales directly support Conservation Collective’s projects in seven countries, empowering local communities to drive waste management and clean-up initiatives.

As Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore states, “This collaboration makes so much sense. Together, we can raise public awareness of environmental issues and support Conservation Collective in their efforts to protect our planet.” Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe echoes this sentiment, adding, “This is a serious issue, but one that we approach with joy and energy inspired by the music of Depeche Mode.”

The Hublot Spirit Big Bang Depeche Mode is a call to action. It’s a reminder that time is precious, and the choices we make today impact the future of our planet. By owning this timepiece, you become part of a global movement, joining hands with Depeche Mode, Hublot, and Conservation Collective to create a lasting legacy – a world free from plastic pollution, where life can flourish for generations to come.
