Mountain Wave Project

The history of the Mountain Wave Project that we sponsored tells the story of two courageous glider pilots who flew over Mount Everest (8849 metres) at icy temperatures as low as -46° and, together with the German Aerospace Center (DLR), undertook the first 3D measurement of the mountain, in order to identify better rescue routes for mountain climbers, amongst other things. Our extraordinary Junkers automatic chronograph, the "Mount Everest", which was designed specifically for this project, has a dial so blue that it mirrors the sky that surrounds the highest peak on our earth.
