Bremont Project Possible – one man’s challenge to summit Earth’s 14 tallest mountains


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. In this film, we meet this extraordinary man who 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 released 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.
