BREITLING CELEBRATES THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY

THE FIRST SPACEGOING WRIST CHRONOGRAPH.

NAVITIMER COSMONAUTE - THE LEGEND CONTINUES

NAVITIMER COSMONAUTE 2012

The new Manufacture Breitling Caliber 02 powering the Navitimer Cosmonaute stands out by its 24 hour display and its manual winding system.

Two distinctive features echoing the model that accompanied Scott Carpenter in orbiting the Earth.

It was developed by the Breitling engineers and watchmakers based on Caliber 01, the world's best chronograph movement, and is endowed with all the assets of this exceptional "engine" including an original column-wheel structure, maximum reliability, security and functionality, unfaltering sturdiness and exceptional precision confirmed by a chronometer certificate granted by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute).

Issued in a 1962 piece limited edition, the 50th anniversary Navitimer Cosmonaute features a black dial with silver counters.

The dial motif is created using the refined "par épargne" process on a sterling silver base, thereby guaranteeing the peerless radiance and readability of the indications.

In addition to the Aurora 7 mission insignia, the engraved caseback also carries a Celsius/Fahrenheit conversion scale, another detail faithful to the design of the vintage Navitimer models.

On May 24th 1962, a Breitling Navitimer Chronograph became the first wrist instrument to share in the conquest of space by accompanying the Aurora 7 flight.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this historical feat, the brand is launching into orbit a new Navitimer Cosmonaute equipped with a highperformance Manufacture Breitling movement, entirely developed and produced in the company workshops.

This 1962 piece limited edition is distinguished by its 24 hour display, its manual winding, as well as the Aurora 7 mission insignia engraved on the caseback.
