Celebrating our fragile earth: introducing astronomy to Mount Everest
There is no doubt that the astronomical tourbillon revolutionized watchmaking when it was launched in 2014. However, it is not completely regarded as an outdoor sports fake watches for men.
But this did not stop the famous Swedish explorer and adventurer activist Johan Ernst Nilson from flying to the Himalayas with his astronomical tourbillon.
Nelson said: “The last time I climbed the Himalayas, wearing an ordinary astronomical tourbillon, I climbed 6,200 meters (nearly 20,000 feet) under extreme conditions of -30°C.” “I used astronomy on the climb, In order to test it. You might think that such a complicated watch would be delicate and fragile, but that is not the case, and it works perfectly under all conditions. I used it to climb the ice wall with an ice axe and hit it On the rocks and ice, and maintained very well.”
Nilson has climbed seven summits (and many other summits), visited 172 countries and some of the most remote places on the planet, and was shortlisted in the Guinness Book of World Records for the “Tripole Challenge.” His travels and experiences allowed him to witness climate change and its consequences firsthand. Now, Nilson is an activist for change, leading people to conduct inspections, lectures and make films about the environment.

To celebrate the earth and emphasize its fragility, astronomical Mount Everest provided miniature transparent water buckets, which Nielsen collected at the north and south poles. When you move the watch, you can actually see the water in the bucket shaking, clearly marking the “North Pole” and “South Pole”. In the center of the clock is a stunning piece of Mt. Everest itself, which Nelson took with both hands.
For easy identification at night, this is the first astronomical clock with the words Super-LumiNova on the dial, the constellation on the dial, the rotating globe, the Jacob & Co. logo on the side of the dial, and even the strap on the dial. So no matter if you are on the mountain. Everest base camp or home from an elegant evening party, you can now read the clock in the evening.
The box of this particular timepiece matches its complexity, as it is shaped like Mount Everest itself with lines indicating ascent. Open the box, the astronomical Mount Everest seems to be embedded in the ice, and the speaker plays the sound of Mount Everest wind, which is recorded live on the mountain.
There are two key elements when buying a watch. One of them, 10% of the purchase price will be donated to charity to help make an immediate difference.
Nielsen said: “I hope this special watches can help change the world.” “The astronomical telescope is the only watch I have ever asked when I wear it, so we will start a conversation, hoping that it will change. This special book Version will promote the fragility of our planet.”
“It is very important for us to use part of the proceeds from the sale for charity, and if we are to make a difference, we must all take action,” Alabo added.
Most importantly, every purchase includes a helicopter ride with Nilson to explore the place where Everest was discovered. In this way, the buyer and a booster can experience Nielsen’s experience firsthand and see the need for further action.
Astronomical Mount Everest is limited to 24 pieces to match the 24 time zones of the Earth-12 pieces for the black celestial dome and 12 pieces for the blue celestial dome. Both Arabo and Nilson hope that its influence will be much smaller than the lucky ones who own it. Nielsen emphasized: “Everyone is attracted to astronomy. It is so unique.” “If you add these two poles and the story of the mountain, Mount Everest, people will be really attracted to it, and they will help spread the word.”
