In 2010, Hublot payed tribute by creating the Hublot King Power Tribute To Mexico, and whose case-back reproduces an illustration of the famous "Cry of Dolores", symbolised by the bell that sounded the rallying call in 1810.
It was in 1810 that the people of Dolores, led by its priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, started their rebellion to free themselves from Spanish domination. Calling on the villagers (by ringing the bells of his parish) to revolt against the colonial grip, he uttered the famous “Cry of Dolores”, an exhortation to fight the Spanish government to win national independence. Without military experience and armed with improvised weapons, the inhabitants of Dolores triggered a wave of revolution throughout the country, thereby marking the first crucial step towards its independence.
