Hublot and the legendary musical act Depeche Mode are releasing a watch for each of their published 55 singles, through out the years.

This is a special limited edition of only 55 manufactured pieces. Each watch is an individual tribute to each Depeche Mode single, featuring a disc that partially shows the image of the record cover it represents on the dial; while the case back will have the entire cover of the single. But, the greatest feature here for the true Depeche Mode fan is the exclusive “Roland JP-08” synthesizer that will be included with each piece.
The “Roland JP-08” is a limited edition synth module from the “Roland Boutique” series, which pays homage and recreates the sounds of the legendary “Roland Jupiter 8” synth, used by Depeche Mode to craft many of their hit singles.
To ship out with style, all contents will be packed in a cabin size “Topas Stealth” suitcase made by the legendary “RIMOWA” luggage manufacturer. Its sleek custom-made case crafted out of anodized black aluminium to showcase this unique collection, will securely protect: the unique timepiece, synthesizer, corresponding vinyl single and certificate of authenticity signed by the band! A truly rock star kit, thoroughly thought out.
The 45mm case is based on the iconic Hublot “Big Bang” model made of knurled and polished black ceramic with a transparent case back, which allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement.

Mounted to the case is also a knurled and polished black ceramic bezel, while the bezel lugs are fitted by black composite resin with 6 H-shaped black-plated titanium screws. Equipped with knurled and black-plated titanium push-pieces for the chronograph functions, plus the setting-crown in between them.
The case back also features the aforementioned cover of each individual Depeche Mode single it represents, plus the common charity’s NGO water logo. Topped by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment. Water-resistance on this watch can reach up to 100 meters (330 feet).
Time is exhibited on a matte black skeleton dial with black-plated studded hour index markers. Followed by a series of small perforated minute index markers, with Arabic numerals for every five-minute increment. There are two sub-dials: a 60-minute counter at the 3 o’clock position and a sub-seconds at the 9 o’clock position. The central and sub-dial hands are all skeletonized, except the thin chronograph hand that features the Hublot logo. There is also a date aperture at the 3 o’clock position.
Net proceeds from the sale of these 55 unique pieces that make up the “Hublot Big Bang Depeche Mode ‘The Singles’ Limited Edition” will be donated to the charity: water organization, as part of the larger initiative between Depeche Mode and Hublot to help preserve the essential life resource of water.
