List Description

New Zealand, unlike countries such as the United States, Canada, and Australia, does not have a tradition of strong local administrative divisions like states or provinces. As such, the list of 17 regions presented here are of relatively recent vintage and are not as well-recognized as, for example, the states of the U.S. or Australia. However, it is all we have to work with if we want a list for New Zealand equivalent to a state high point list.

There are only really 16 regions defined for New Zeland, and the 17th, the "Outlying Islands", is an artifical construct I created to hold the peaks on the Chatham Islands, Auckland Islands, the Snares, Campbell Island, Antipodes Islands, Bounty Islands, and the Kermandec Islands. All of these are conisdered part of metropolitan New Zealand, in contrast to the dependencies of the Cook Islands, Tokelau, and Niue, so therefore should be part of a region. I could not determine which region these islands belonged to, so I created a new region to hold them.

This looks like a fun list to try and complete, with a nice variety to it. The peaks in the Southern Alps are very difficult, but the remainder do not seem unduly hard to attain, except for getting to the Auckland Islands to do Mount Dick.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to www.attrinity.com play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
