British adventurer Sir Ralph Fiennes was at a press meet in Kathmandu on Tuesday to announce the limited edition of Himalaya Everest watches to be launched by Kobold watches. The watch doesn’t come cheap as it’s priced at $16,500 USD but if you are planning to buy it from the Nepali market then you’ll be lucky to get your hands on the exclusive 25 piece item for only $8,848 (the height of Everest in metres) or Nrs 4.5 Lakhs, that’s a discount rate for Nepal as the product will be Made in Nepal. A piece of rock collected from near the Everest summit has been incorporated in the special dial of the watch which will give it an edgy design and give you a chance to wear Everest on your wrist.
Any takers?? Imagine dropping your watch and smashing it… that’s a big Nrs 4.5 Lakhs worth of UH-OH down the drain… or $16,500!
