This is an automatic watch for mountain climbing enthusiasts. Its predecessor, the “Laurel Alpinist”, was released in 1959. Taking over that name, it was released over 30 years later, in 1995. With a durable stainless steel case which is water resistant up to 20 bar, it is designed to withstand rough treatment in outdoor life. It comes with a magnifying lens to enlarge the calendar window for greater legibility.
