From the manufacturer’s website: “In commemoration of one of America’s greatest polar explorer, Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Kobold is reintroducing a watch bearing the legendary aviator’s name. It was Richard E. Byrd’s historic first flight to the South Pole, on November 29th, 1929, propelled the naval aviator into the hearts and minds of his contemporaries around the world, and secured the United States’ standing among only a handful of countries actively pursuing polar exploration…”
