List Description

This list is perhaps the most challenging of the well-known peakbagger's lists in the world. There are only 14 summits that rise above 8000 meters, every one of them projecting into the "death zone", where all humans rapidly degrade and eventually die without supplemental oxygen.

Ten of the 8000 meter peaks are in the Himalaya, and of those, nine (all but Nanga Parbat) are in Nepal, on its border, or very close. The other four 8000 meter peaks are clustered closely in the Karakoram Range (technically not part of the Himalaya).

The 8000 meter peaks were first climbed between 1950 (Annapurna) and 1964 (Shishma Pangma). The first to do all 14 was Reinhold Messner, completing on Lhotse in 1986. As of 2013, over thirty climbers have now joined this most exclusive of peakbagging clubs.

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.
