Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute

Friday, May 25th, 2012


To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Carpenter’s historic flight, Breitling is releasing the Navitimer Cosmonaute — a faithful reproduction of the watch that helped make aeronautical history. At the heart of the 43mm stainless steel case beats Breitling’s 39 jewel, COSC-certified Caliber 02 hand-wound movement, at 28,800 vibrations per hour. In addition to the chronometer itself, the watch contains two other essential pilot instruments: a circular slide rule integrated into the bi-directional rotating bezel, and (faithful to the vintage 1952 versions) a Celsius/Fahrenheit conversion scale etched into the caseback.
