The first chronograph of the wrist that traveled in space is proposed by BREITLING in a new exclusive version and technique completely All Black, in a Limited Edition of just 1,000 pieces.
It was May 24, 1962 when Commander Scott Carpenter traveled three orbits around the Earth aboard the Aurora Capsule 7. The wrist was wearing a replica Navitimer BREITLING equipped with a 24-hour grading that distinguishes the day from night – something indispensable in space.
That replica watch became part of the Breitling replica collections under the name of Cosmonaute. After celebrating the 50th anniversary of its 2012 baptism, Navitimer Cosmonaute continues its orbit into a new, original version featuring a black steel case obtained through a high-strength carbon-based finish.
Dial and high performance chronograph counters have the same black color, enlivened by luminescent indications and small red lancets. The manufacturer’s Caliber B02, certified as a stopwatch by the COSC (Swiss Official Checks for Chronometers), has two loyal features in its original model: Manual Charging and 24 Hour Indication. Navitimer’s renowned circular calculator allows you to perform all the operations related to aerial navigation on your wrist. On the base there is the official insignia of the Aurora 7 mission. Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel mounts a black rubber strap that reinforces its masculine and technological look.
