Mount Grant is one of the highest and most prominent peaks in the area of the Great Basin south of Lake Tahoe. A realtively gentle hulk of talus, the peak dominates the Wassuk Range and the nearby town of Hawthorne. It is a particularly dry mountain, even for Nevada, due to the rain shadow of the Sierra Nevada.

Warning! Mount Grant is located on the Hawthorne Army Ammunition Depot, and access is closed to the public. In addition to being one of the largest munitions storage sites in the US, the area around Mount Grant is also used for live-fire training of soldiers. The altitude and terrain is similar to what US forces would encounter in Afghanistan. Trespassing on this peak could lead to arrest, or, far worse, accidental death.

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 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.
