WATCH BY EINSTOFFEN: ALEXANDER VON HUMBOLDT | QUARTZ ROSÉ GOLD
'Every man has a duty to seek in his life the place from which he can best serve his generation'. Humboldt's grand idea was to collect and present the knowledge of his time. In the 18th century, he embarked on a mission to researching the geography, plants and animals from the Rio Negro to Peru and Mexico, and discovered, among other things, a really cute penguin species. The green dial is reminiscent of his first major expedition to the Amazon basin.
