Only chromed-steel version, this republication concentrates all the elements of origin to make a perennially fashionable model: simplicity, reliability and robustness.
 
History : 
 
The Himalaya watch symbolises, with its name and its lines, all the big epics of the French adventurers in the discovery of new summits. So Maurice Herzog was the first one to climb with Louis Lachenal a summit of more than 8 000 meters, Annapurna, on June 3rd, 1950. He was representative of this model during advertising campaigns to assert the qualities of reliability of this model.
 
The friendship between Fred Lip and Maurice Herzog helped create this model and it took the name of the famous mountain range "Himalaya" which shelters the highest summits of the world.
