Breitling Navitimer replica Cosmonaute
On May 24th, 1962, space explorer Scott Carpenter, officer of the Aurora 7 space container, turned into the second American to circle the earth and his picked wristwatch — a Breitling Navitimer — turned into the main wristwatch to do as such on the wrist of an American, winning its new name of Cosmonaute. A year ago, Breitling paid tribute to the notable space mission by discharging a 50th-commemoration constrained release of the first Cosmonaute, and it tails it up this year with the arrival of an all-dark form, the Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel.
The instance of the Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel, 43 mm in distance across and water-impervious to 30 meters, was darkened utilizing the same procedure as a year ago’s Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel model, in which an exceptionally safe carbon-based covering is added to the steel. The dial echoes the case’s dark shading, while white numerals and hands, covered with luminescent material, and little red hands for the chronograph counters give contrast. Like that of its authentic ancestor, the new Navitimer Cosmonaute’s dial highlights a roundabout slide principle, worked by the bezel, that empowers its wearer to make different valuable computations and declares the model’s sources as a down to earth timepiece for pilots. The 24-hour graduated scale — the element that most pulled in Scott Carpenter to the watch, as it empowered him to observe day from night while in circle around the earth — is additionally recreated here.
Likewise like the first Navitimer Cosmonaute, this one contains a manual-wind development, Breitling’s production Caliber B02, which controls a 1/4-second chronograph capacity with 30-moment and 12-hour counters (at 3 o’clock and 6 o’clock on the dial, individually); a date sign (in a window at 4:30); and little seconds (at 9 o’clock). The development has a recurrence of 28,800 vph, contains 39 gems and amasses to 70 hours of force store. Like all Breitling developments, Caliber B02 has been chronometer-affirmed by COSC.
The bended sapphire precious stone has been dealt with on both sides with a glareproof treatment. The caseback showcases an imprinting of the official Aurora 7 mission symbol. The Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel goes ahead a punctured dark elastic “Sea Racer” strap. A constrained release of 1,000 pieces, it retails for $9,590.
