Ever wonder why the Lip Himalaya is called the Himalaya?  Well, strap on your crampons and let's go climbing back in time to 1951.  This marked the third French expedition to the Himalayas, and Marcel Livet (the namesake of the particularly drip handmade French skis) was one of the organizers for the French Alpine Club.
Lip provided the watches for the team.

While ill-fated (not all who set out returned and were forever lost to the mountains), it was also marked a pivotal time in mountain exploration.

To commemorate the expedition, Lip and Marcel Livet have teamed up to offer this limited edition.

The case is of stainless steel and measures 40 mm in diameter.  the movement is Miyota's 9132 automatic/self-winding with date at 3 o'clock, and a small sub-second dial.

This is a limited edition and priced at €549.00
