The Newest Watch from Breitling



     On May 24, 1962, Scott Carpenter wore a Breitling Navitimer Chronograph as he orbited the earth three times on the Aurora 7 flight.  The 24 hour display, maximum reliability, and ability to operate without losing time while in space allowed him to distinguish between night and day during the flight. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this noteworthy occasion, Breitling has released the Navitimer Cosmonaute.  Limited to 1,962 pieces, this timepiece features a 24-hour display and a manual-winding mode in tribute to the original model.  It also includes an Aurora 7 mission insignia and a Celsius/Fahrenheit conversion scale on the back.  Fashioned after the Caliber 01, the most reliable chronograph on the market, it includes the original column-wheel structure, impeccable reliability and precision, a 70-hour power reserve, and a chronometer certificate issued by the COSC in addition to a rotating bezel, tachymeter markings, and a handsome black and silver design.
