When I first saw it I knew it was not a common model.
Then did some research and found out it did have a connection to Explorer going to Mt. Everest. Now checking out the upcoming Christie's auction I am amazed to see that it's gold "brothers" are estimated to fetch between $50,000
and $164,000.http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/watc ... 34901e8a8b

I love the history and classic look of these 6098s. As far as the star dial gold variants, I drool every time I see any of them.

Very nice 6098.

3-4 years ago, no one seem to know about them. Suddenly, it's Sir Edmond's famous explorer model! How Internet news changes everything!
