It’s great when someone like Parker takes one of our outdoor watches in to the field.
Since the age of the 14, Parker Liautard has been committed to the Polar Regions. Since visiting the Antarctic with Robert Swan - the first man to walk to both the North and South poles - in 2009, he has returned to the region three times, successfully walking to the North Pole twice. As a Nite ambassador since early 2011, Parker has been accompanied by a Chrono CR8 chronograph on each of his polar adventures.
December 2012 will see the most ambitious of Parker’s adventures as he attempts to become the youngest person to reach the South Pole. The journey will take in 550 miles of ice sheet and temperatures as low as -30c all whilst pulling a sled weighing 250 pounds. Parker is not your average teenager.
Although he once was….since his first visit in 2009, Parker has been drawn to the Polar regions, not just for the intense physical challenge of one of the harshest environments on earth, but as a platform to highlight his work as a Climate Change Campaigner. Parker’s campaign, The Last Degree aims to influence and drive forward the discussion of “innovative, realistic and achievable solutions to the challenges presented by human-caused climate change”.
Roger Green, founder of Nite Watches commented: “Parker is a role model for his generation. He had an amazing introduction to the Poles by the seasoned adventurer Robert Swan, but he didn’t stop there. He’s a man of conviction and uses his trips to highlight climate change – we’re proud to be associated with him and will be following his trip to the South Pole in December from Nite HQ with great interest and fully expect him to succeed.”
“It’s great when someone like Parker takes one of our outdoor watches in to the field. They’re designed to be worn whether it’s 20 above or below, and we’re very confident our watches can keep up with their owners – even someone like Parker! He’s worn a Nite Chrono CR8 for some time now, although a chronograph, it’s also a tough watch which hasn’t let him down.”
