ODD COU­PLE

Hong Kong Tatler - - Watch News -

Swiss lux­ury watch­maker Hublot and 1980s English elec­tronic band Depeche Mode do not spring to mind as nat­u­ral bed­fel­lows. But they are linked in a project that has brought clean wa­ter to over 30,000 peo­ple in Nepal and Ethiopia since 2009. Their part­ner­ship has now pro­duced the “watch for wa­ter,” which was launched at Basel­world. Cre­ated by Hublot, it cel­e­brates the band’s new al­bum, Spirit. Pro­ceeds from sales will fund the build­ing of wells in ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties in the de­vel­op­ing world.
