In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the successful conquest of the Matterhorn Cervino in the Alps, BALL Watch has launched the Engineer Hydrocarbon Arctic Chronometer chronograph watch-limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide. The ultimate timepiece for polar exploration!
The Matterhorn Cervino, reputed as the ‘most among the mountains’, has an altitude of 4,478 meters and is one of the highest peaks in the European Alps. For a long time, human beings have tried to conquer this behemoth. Percent proudly, resolutely and fascinating, but with a bit of desolation. However, no one succeeded. There is even a tragic ending. However, until July 14, 1865, the Englishman Edward Whymper and his team finally set off from Switzerland and reached the Matterhorn, which was only a few hours faster than his friends and opponents. The brave Italian climber Jean-Antoine Carrel climbed all the way from the southern cliffs of Italy and looked down at the top of the vineyard.
But this huge victory brought a bittersweet ending to Wen Bai: As he descended the mountain, his four teammates lost their lives because of a sudden fall-a tragedy that persisted for the rest of the life. On the other side, Carrel didn’t notice the accident and tried to reach the summit for the second time. This time, with teamwork and sacrifice, Karel finally reached the top on July 17. Within four days, this ‘impossible mountain’ has been conquered twice, and since then Carel’s relationship with this mountain has been inseparable. Even 25 years later, he sacrificed his life to save those who encountered the blizzard. He is a real hero. And everything happened in the mountain he loved.
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the successful conquest of the Matterhorn Cervino in the Alps, BALL Watch has launched the Engineer Hydrocarbon Arctic Chronometer chronograph watch, limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide. Priority is now given to watch fans to choose their favorite limited edition number. The release date is expected to be July 30, with a time limit of 48 hours.
