Hublot Pays Tribute To Nelson Mandela

Hublot Classic Fusion House of Mandela

Easily one of modern history’s most important and influential figures, Nelson Mandela fought to bring human rights and racial equality to South Africa by working to overturn Apartheid. Now, Hublot pays tribute to one of the best known human rights activists of modern times with the unveiling of the Classic Fusion House of Mandela. The watch dedicated to the former president of South Africa who passed away in 2013 is made in collaboration to House of Mandela, a charity organization which was founded by the family of the late anti-apartheid revolutionary.

The Hublot Classic Fusion House of Mandela is crafted from 18k King Gold and available in two different models: a 45mm diameter men’s piece and a 42mm diameter women’s piece with a bezel set with 35 diamonds. The dial carries the totem of the Mandela family, a bee with branching wings that symbolizes the many branches of the Mandela family tree. The bee is inspired by Nelson Mandela’s Xhosa name, Rolihlahla. The name translates to “he who is brave enough to fetch the honey from the honeycomb” or “challenge the status quo”. Both versions are launched in 95-piece limited issues and they are equipped with self-winding mechanical movements.
