His name is synonymous with freedom, hope and dignity. The father of today’s democratic and multi-racial South Africa. He became the country’s first black President in 1994. Nelson Mandela, also known as “Madiba” – who passed away in 2013 at the age of 95 – was, without a doubt, one of the world’s most influential spokesmen on human rights. His name is now revered all around the world.
Today, in collaboration with the House of Mandela foundation created by the family of the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Hublot has decided to pay tribute to him by unveiling the Classic Fusion House of Mandela. It is a homage both to his exceptional character, and to the legacy that he has left to not only his family, but humanity as a whole.
The House of Mandela aims to commemorate the life and philosophy of Nelson Mandela. Amongst its many charity projects, the Mandela family contributes to the education of South African children. A portion of the profits generated by the sale of these timepieces will also be donated to help the foundation achieve this goal.
