Famed explorers Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay were the first people to ever reach the summit of Mt. Everest, completing the daunting task in 1953. Rolex’s HTE series has since celebrated their achievements with a collection of rugged, yet sophisticated sports watches. 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. Take your adventure to the next level. via hypebeast
