Straight to the top of my most wanted list are these latest watches from Rolex’s special HTE series in commemoration of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay’s climb to the summit of Mt. Everest in 1953.
“The final pieces in the trilogy have been announced, the 39mm and 42mm, which celebrate the achievements of their children. The 39mm applauds Sir Edmund and his son Peter as the first father and son duo to reach the top. Similarly, the 42mm takes note of Peter and Jamling Tenzing Norgay summiting Everest. Select HTE buyers will also get a once in a lifetime opportunity to join Peter Hillary and Jamling Tenzing Norgay on their trek to Everest Basecamp in May 2012, following in their father’s footsteps. ” – HB
