Yesterday for my birthday I traveled with my wife to
to have a good time together in Italia. First stop
was Bolzano, beautifull little place in Sud Tirol..

Everything was perfect, the weather, the food, life can be good wink.gif

Next stop was the imposant Castle Sigmundskron on top of the mountain, where Mr Messner
started the MMM Firmian, Messner Mountain Museum (Check for background info his websites
www.reinhold-messner.de & www.messner-mountain-museum.it ) Reinhold Messner is living hero
to me, a pure legend who proved that the imposible IS possible. His MMM project he calls the
15th 8000mt mountain he conquered, 14 x highest mountains & his mountain museums makes no.15

Here are some impressions...

We really had a great time together and enjoyed every minute. While flying back home over the Alps
only thing I could think of is how happy I was to meet yet another Rolex legend from the past wink.gif

Many thanks for all the wishes I received yesterday from my Rolex buddies from all over the world!

Best to you all!
Philipp

"May there be more"...... ;-)

Thnks! i'm approaching the (forgotten) heritage of Rolex, as always my friend wink.gif
We're working together on a perfect combination of the legendary Mr Messner & Rolex
it's fantastic legacy. This first proto I showed him, was my new 42 mm Expl 2 White...

But I can already tell you that the our whole idea
behind the Messner Rolex is gonna be even more
exciting! Soon I can report you guys more wink.gif

Ciao Philipp
