Geneva, Switzerland – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

The 12 unique timepieces bearing the album artwork of Depeche Mode’s legendary studio albums were all sold in an online auction that ended last night. All proceeds from the sale will be presented to the Teenage Cancer Trust in Dusseldorf during the penultimate concert of Depeche Mode’s “Sounds of The Universe Tour” on February 26th. Patrizzi & Co and Internet auction host services donated both their time and energy in providing a secure state-of-the-art, online bidding system coupled with an unparalleled global auction service and expertise.

In support of the Teenage Cancer Trust, Depeche Mode and Hublot joined forces to produce the 12 exclusive boxed sets. Inside each presentation box were exclusive Depeche Mode materials personally chosen by the band. Each watch presentation case contained: a deluxe vinyl version of the album the watch related to, a USB Key containing a digital edition of the album and documentary about the making of the album, and an original album artwork print and a framed gold CD. In addition each box contained a photograph signed by all members of the group who contributed to the album including Vince Clarke and Alan Wilder. The highest selling watch (shown above) was the Violator, which sold for CHF 36,000 (approx. $33,305).
