Hillary Tenzing Explorer Custom Rolex Explorer Collection
Despite being an unaffiliated Rolex project, Peter Hillary and Jamling Tenzing Norgay unveil their intricately customized collection of Rolex Explorers. The sons of famed mountaineers Sir Edmund and Tenzing – the first humans to have toppled Mt. Everest – have compiled a trio of watches that include the 36mm HTE based on the Oyster Perpetual worn on the initial trek up Mt. Everest. The HTE 39mm commemorates a bridging of generations as Peter Hillary and father Sir Edmund arrive at the summit of Everest. Lastly, the HTE 42mm is the latest Explorer II that celebrates the retracing of their father’s careers. The collection is limited to 88 editions and packaged alongside several custom-made items in a handmade expedition crate via pre-order here.
