This is the watch that was worn by the first man to conquer the Himalayan mountain Annapurna I. Exclusively available from Hammacher Schlemmer, the original 1950s timepiece was worn by French alpinist legend Maurice Herzog when he made history as the first man to ascend a 26,000'-tall summit. The model has been modified over the years to improve its durability and reliability in extreme weather and environmental elements, making it a staple of professional mountaineers. Manufactured in Besançon, France—near the Switzerland border—the watch provides impeccable timekeeping with French quartz movement and features a polished stainless steel case that protects the splash-resistant watch’s inner workings. Its contemporary analog face displays accuracy with golden minute and hour hands and a sub-dial that provides on-the-second synchronization. The durable brown leather strap fits wrists 6" to 8" in circumference. Imported. Box: 4 3/4" L x 4 1/2" W x 3 3/4" H. (9 oz.)
