“We were so excited to hear that Depeche Mode are going back on tour after all this time! And we knew immediately we had to collaborate again. Hublot has always been be first, different and unique, and there’s no sound that captures that philosophy better than the music of Depeche Mode. We’re also delighted to join with the band to support the work of The Conservation Collective and to know that funds raised by this tour will go to grassroots organizations bringing real change to our environment. We can’t wait to soak up the unique atmosphere that makes a Depeche Mode live date so special and wish Dave and Martin the very best as they release their new album Memento Mori and head out on tour. Hublot loves Depeche Mode!” - Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.
Since their first partnership in 2010, Hublot and Depeche Mode have collaborated a number of times to support causes, notably The Teenage Cancer Trust, which supports young people suffering from cancer. This new partnership has a shared goal of driving tangible change towards sustainability, waste reduction and cleaning up the environment.

“A sincere thanks to our long-time collaborator Hublot, and to Ricardo and all our friends at Hublot for sponsoring the Memento Mori World Tour’s charitable efforts and joining us in our support of The Conservation Collective. This is a big moment for the band going back on tour for the first time in five years, and it’s incredibly meaningful to have such a great partner once again by our side.” - Dave Gahan and Martin Gore, Depeche Mode.
“Everywhere you look there are brilliant, passionate people working to create positive environmental change. Local environmental re-granting foundations of the Conservation Collective make it possible for individuals and local businesses to provide financial support to the most effective organizations working for the protection and restoration of nature in the place that they love. Thank you to Depeche Mode and Hublot for turbo-charging our work and for promoting our stories on a global platform!”— Ben Goldsmith, President of The Conservation Collective.
