Edmund Hillary’s son Peter is alleging that their replica Oris watch stepmother has sold off several family artifacts, and argues that the watches comprise a portion of Edmund Hillary’s estate that belongs to his sister and himself.This sort of drama is not unusual with the disposal of estates, especially when emotional investment, family tensions and objects of great monetary value all intersect, and while it is interesting, in a somewhat voyeuristic way, to read about this, it isn’t the most significant or surprising part of the drama around Hilary’s Explorer.
What is really unusual is that the New Zealand Ministry for Culture and Heritage informed Lady Hillary that the 6084 Explorer was protected under the replica Patek Philippe watch Protected Objects Act which means that it may not leave New Zealand without the Ministry’s permission.It is very unusual - if not unheard of - for an individual's personal possession, as this Rolex is, to be considered part of national heritage.But New Zealand does really love Sir Ed, they even put him on some of their money.The Ministry has not ruled on prosecuting Lady Hillary if the watch is not returned to New Zealand.
If the Explorer does not reach auction Lady Hillary Longines replica watches may be liable to pay significant (in excess of $100,000) penalty fees to Antiquorum, as the lots had attracted enormous interest.
