This past January, I wrote about the Seiko Landmaster “Miura Everest 2013″ Watch (Spring Drive) and the great adventure it was created for.  Today, 80-year old Japanese alpinist Yuichiro Miura successfully climbed Mr. Everest, making him the oldest such person ever to do so.  This along with the fact that Miura was the first man to ski down Mt. Everest, a feat he accomplished in 1970 (later documented in an Academy Award winning documentary), puts Miura forever in the ranks of the world’s greatest alpinists.

Congrats to Mr. Yuichiro Miura and also to Seiko.  Check out my January article for more on the Seiko Landmaster “Miura Everest 2013″ Watch (Spring Drive)>>>
