Vacheron Constantin prides itself on its industry-leading character, adorning the wrists of iconic individuals like composer Benjamin Clementine, designer Ora Ito, and musician James Bay. Now, the prestigious watchmaker has added the intrepid photographer, Cory Richards, to its roster — gifting him a one-of-a-kind prototype watch for his ascent of Everest.

Richards isn’t an amateur when it comes to the elevated ascent of the world’s most revered peak; he’s already scaled it two separate times — once without oxygen. To commemorate the tenacity of the ambitious photographer, Vacheron Constantin gifted Richards his very own prototype watch — based off of the company’s Overseas Dual Time — made to brave the altitudes and freezing temperatures of the Himalayas. The wristwear’s 41mm titanium case houses a beautiful in-house mechanical movement and frosted dial, but it’s the rear of the timepiece that steals the show — outfitted with a 22k gold oscillating rotor that’s been engraved to mimic Richards’ most memorable photos of Everest. While the expeditionary’s example is, in fact, one-of-a-kind, the original Overseas Dual Time (with a full titanium bracelet) is available on Vacheron Constantin’s website starting at $23,900.
