Following the successful creation of the Rolex Piccard Single Red Deepsea, we have created a new and exclusive tribute: the Hillary Tenzing Edition. The Hillary Tenzing Edition HTE is a unique homage that highlights the extraordinary achievement of two mythical names in the history of exploring, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. They were the first humans in 1953 to conquer the highest mountain on earth, Mount Everest.
also pays tribute to another great feat in the impressive Rolex history of exploration. Centrepiece in the Hillary Tenzing Edition series will be models of the Explorer watch, arguably the ultimate Rolex legendary sports model. The limited Hillary Tenzing Edition HTE series has been created in close cooperation with Peter Hillary and Jamling Tenzing Norgay, sons of the famous mountaineers and acclaimed adventurers themselves.
tribute will be produced in a limited edition series of only 88 packages, consisting of 3 customised Rolex Explorer watches and several custom-made vintage items commemorating the successful 1953 ascent. All items will be packed in a handcrafted vintage Everest expedition crate, individually numbered including a signed certificate by Peter Hillary and Jamling Tenzing Norgay. The complete Hillary Tenzing Edition package will be revealed over the next months on the interactive website www.hillarytenzingexplorer.com.
will be auctioned for the benefits of the Peter Hillary's Hillary Himalaya Foundation and Jamling Norgay's Tenzing Norgay Trust. Buyers of the Hillary Tenzing Edition will get access to an inspiring lecture by Peter Hillary and Jamling Tenzing Norgay in March 2011 in Maastricht, the Netherlands. A not-to-be-missed opportunity to meet the renowned adventurers up close and personal.
The Hillary Tenzing Edition is not affiliated with the Rolex organization. The international warranty will go through the atelier of Hillary Tenzing Edition Ltd.
