On May 24, 1962, Breitling Navitimer appeared on the wrist of Cmdr. Scott Carpenter orbits the Earth three times in the Aurora 7 capsule. The reason for separating this watch from other watches at the time was that it was equipped with a 24-hour dial that could be easily divided between day and night (it was not an easy task when you orbit the earth). A few years ago, Breitling Replica Watches released a limited edition Navitimer Cosmonaute to commemorate Mr. Carpenter’s mission (hands here). Now, in 2013, Breitling has released the Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel in black steel.
Driving all the features of the watch, we have the interior manufacturing Breitling Replica Caliber B02 calibre, which has been certified by COSC. This movement features a hand-wound movement and a 24-hour scale, both of which match the original model of this souvenir. This high-beat movement (28,800 bph) is also equipped with a 1/4 second chronograph, 30 minutes and 12 hours of recording. It looks like a good, higher-end action to read my specs.
But back to the original reference, which included the case back engraving, which included the Aurora 7 mission badge. The watch is in line with the Swiss Breitling Watches aerospace series, with sliding rules around the dial that can be used to navigate through the bi-directional rotating bezel.
