Over the last few weeks there has been much controversy over the sale of Sir Edmund Hillary’s collection of Rolex’s, in a sort of timely turn of fate, Rolex have released their newest series of explorer’s named the “Hillary Tenzing Series.” Pretty good timing huh! Controversy or not, this is nice, really nice!
“The exclusive and limited edition set of 3 customized Rolex Explorer models is being brought to us by the same creators of the Piccard Single Red Deepsea (Keep in mind that none of these models are officially associated with Rolex. The ~$39,000 set will come in a custom crate along with several custom-made items (Shell cordovan NATO watch straps with HTE logo, etc.) that signify the historic Everest summit of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on May 29, 1953.”
