HIMALAYA 33 MM BEATING HEARTMADE IN FRANCE
Made in France - Besançon
A model revisited and softened by a soft and very modern colour. A real little gem of French technology that elegantly adapts to small female wrists and goes well with all wardrobes.
A French history
The Himalaya model was born from a discussion between Fred Lip, a mountain enthusiast, and his friend Lionel Terray, a high mountain guide. Maurice Herzog, friend of Fred Lip, also made a significant contribution to the success of this watch. Maurice Herzog was the first mountaineer to climb the Annapurna. The 1959 advertisements stated that it had been chosen by nine out of ten of the "Greats" of mountaineering for its amazing resistance to the elements and impacts.
