Luxury and adventure meet in Kobold’s Himalaya Everest Edition watch, a timepiece crafted from a piece of the peak itself.
Made from a piece of rock collected from Everest’s summit, more than 8,800 meters above sea level, the material for the watch face was brought down from the mountain by Michael Kobold and a brand ambassador in 2009, Born Rich reports. But preparing the rock for jewelry took some time.
The water-resistant watch features a brushed-finished stainless steel case and a dome anti-reflective crystal synthetic sapphire. There are only 25 of these limited-edition timepieces with the cool price tag of $16,500, which in comparison is actually much cheaper than the price of climbing Everest itself (about $83,000).
