MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

After flying to an altitude of 39,045 meters (128,100 feet) in a helium-filled balloon, Felix Baumgartner completed a record breaking jump from the edge of space.

Felix reached a maximum of speed of 1,342.8 km/h (833mph) through the near vacuum of the stratosphere before being slowed by the atmosphere later during his 4:20 minute long freefall.

The project attempted to transcend human limits that have existed for over 50 years and smash three world records:

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

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 most titled brand in the field of precision
