Groundbreaking English electro-pop artists Depeche Mode have had a successful, and at times rocky, world tour this past year to support the release of their 12th album 'Sounds of the Universe' which hit the stores in April. Depeche Mode recently announced that they would also be performing a benefit concert at London's Royal Albert Hall on February 10th, 2010 to support Teenage Cancer Trust an organization that assists younger cancer sufferers.
To commemorate the event and give the charity a large boost in its bottom line; Swiss watchmaker Hublot announced that they will be producing 12 special edition 'Big Bang' series watches [which it looks like they are nicknaming "pop"]. The dials of each watch will feature the album art work for all of Depeche Mode's releases. Hublot will put the watches up for auction on a dedicated website beginning February 1st, 2010, all of the proceeds from the sales will go directly to the Teenage Cancer Trust. The auction website will become available through both Hublot's , and Depeche Mode's official sites.
No photos of the watches have been released as of yet, but I will get them up as soon as they appear. Those interested in attending the concert can purchase tickets through www.livenation.co.uk.
