2019 saw one man achieve the impossible. It is unlikely in this lifetime that anyone will complete something of the magnitude that Bremont Ambassador Nirmal ‘Nims’ Purja MBE accomplished in just 6 months and 6 days. Nims firmly took his place in mountaineering history when he completed Bremont Project Possible, a challenge to summit Earth’s 14 tallest mountains, all higher than 8,000m, in less than 7 months. Smashing the previous record of nearly 8 years and breaking a further 6 world records in the process, it’s arguably a record unlikely to be broken. The 14 mountains all enter the ‘death zone’ at that altitude, so-called because human life cannot exist there. Unphased by the enormity of the challenge, Nims never contemplated failure.
To celebrate this remarkable feat and the ultimate mountaineering goal, Bremont is releasing the Limited Edition Bremont Project Possible, limited to only 300 pieces. The watch has an open case back through which the rotor can be seen, which details the heights of each of the 14 mountains, and in the order that Nims summited them. Even with the sapphire case back, it is still water resistant to 500 metres and although built in limited numbers, its strength as a mountaineering watch has not been diminished.
