There is no doubt that on the topic of human rights, Nelson Mandela is one of the most influential spokespersons in the world and is revered by the people of the world.
   The descendants of the family founded the House of Mandela to commemorate the life and philosophy of Nelson Mandela and carry out many charitable projects including supporting children’s education in South Africa. Today, Hublot, a well-known Swiss luxury watchmaker, joins hands with House of Mandela to launch the classic fusion series of House of Mandela watches, paying tribute to Nelson Mandela’s great personality and his precious legacy to the family and humanity.

   Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe said, ‘Nelson Mandela has left an indelible mark on human history, and it is a great honor to create a watch to pay tribute to him. For us , The Classic Fusion House of Mandela watch is a way to ensure that the philosophy of great men continues to spread. ‘
   The classic fusion series House of Mandela 18K gold watch is divided into two versions: 45mm men’s watch and 42mm women’s watch (set with 35 diamonds on the bezel, total weight 1.15 carats). Echoing the age of Nelson Mandela’s death, the watch is limited to 95 pieces. The dial is engraved with wings and bees, which symbolize the branches of the Mandela family.
   The bee was not chosen by accident, it is derived from Nelson Mandela’s Xhosa name ‘Rolihlahla’ (meaning ‘the one who dares to extract honey from the hive’ or ‘challenge the status quo’). In addition, the bee stands for courage, sharing, and sympathy, which is the common value of the entire family. The Hublot Classic Fusion House of Mandela watch is paired with a black alligator leather strap.
