Wearing the El Primero Stratos Flyback Striking 10th chronograph, Zenith Ambassador Felix Baumgartner is taking the plunge in the summer of 2012

The Austrian will jump out of a capsule suspended from a balloon in the stratosphere at an altitude of over 120,000 feet / 36,5 kilometers, nearly four times higher than passenger planes typically fly.

A mission to the very edge of space labelled Red Bull Stratos.

The project will attempt to transcend human limits that have existed for more than 50 years and smash four world records:

1 - The highest manned balloon flight
2 - The highest freefall
3 - The longest freefall time
4 - The first time in history, breaking the sound barrier with the human body

Supported by a team of experts, Felix Baumgartner will ascend to 120,000 feet / 36576 meters with a stratospheric balloon and make an unprecedented freefall jump – accelerating from a standstill to 700 miles/h / 1,125 kilometers/h or more and rushing toward earth at supersonic speeds before parachuting to the ground.

This attempt to dare atmospheric limits is fulfilling a lifelong dream for the adventurer and provides valuable medical and scientific research data for future pioneers.

Zenith Manufacture is one of the main sponsors and sole timekeeper of this extremely dangerous mission.

The Red Bull Stratos team brings together the world’s leading minds in aerospace medicine, engineering, pressure suit development, capsule creation and balloon fabrication.

The team includes retired United States Air Force Colonel Joseph Kittinger, who has ascended to a height of 102,800 feet / 31,333 meters, holds three of the records Felix Baumgartner will strive to break.
