The long awaited picture of the 3 Rolex Hillary Tenzing Explorer (HTE) watches is finally live. Each Rolex HTE watch celebrates the success and legacy of the daring Hillary & Tenzing adventurers and their Rolex Explorers during extreme expeditions.
The HTE 36mm is based on the Oyster Perpetual model used by the 1953 Everest expedition and is tribute to the first ascent of the highest mountain by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. The new Explorer I is chosen for HTE 39mm, honouring Sir Ed and son Peter Hillary as the first and second generation to reach the top of Everest. Peter Hillary and Jamling Tenzing Norgay wore an Explorer II while climbing the summit of Everest. The HTE 42mm uses the new Explorer II to commemorate the achievement of retracing their fathers' footsteps.
