Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute 50th anniversary limited edition

On May 24, 1962, Scott Carpenter orbited the Earth three times aboard the Aurora 7 capsule. On his wrist was a Navitimer with a 24-hour graduation — a vital necessity in distinguishing day from night. It thus became the first wrist chronograph to travel in space. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this pioneer in the sphere of space conquest, Breitling is setting into orbit a new Navitimer Cosmonaute model with a 100% in-house movement. This 1,962-piece limited series is distinguished by its 24-hour display, its manual winding — two tributes to the original 1962 chronograph — as well as the Aurora 7 insignia engraved on the caseback.
