On May 24th 1962, astronaut Scott Carpenter orbited the Earth three times aboard the Aurora 7 space capsule. Accompanying him on his mission was a Breitling Navitimer equipped with a 24 hour scale. This watch was later released to honor this great achievement for both man and horology. Breitling gave this watch a face lift and unveiled the Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Black Steel Limited Edition 43mm watch replica MB0210, let’s take a look.
This Breitling Navitimer black dial watch replica comes in a limited numbered series of 1000 pieces. The case comes in stainless steel, which is treated with carbon to produce the brand’s patented Black Steel. The case also features a 43mm diameter and rides high on the wrist with a case height of 13.85mm. The main crown is of the push/pull variety and carries two gaskets, which maintain the water resistance of 30 meters (3 ATM) on this watch. The iconic notched bidirectional bezel operates the slide rule which is located on the flange or internal bezel.
The circular slide rule is featured an all Breitling Navitimer models replicas and are used by aeronautical professionals to calculate any rule of three equation. Slide rules first entered Breitling’s designs back in 1942 but are best known for their presence on the original Navitimer, which is the world’s oldest chronograph still in production.
The main feature on the dial remains the 24 hour graduated scale which is important in space exploration as the difference between night and day is paramount. All of the chronograph subdials feature a red indicator, inclusive of the small seconds counter at 9 o’clock. This Breitling Navitimer chronograph 43mm watch fake can time events up to 12 hours. Breitling uses Super-LumiNova to maintain readability in the depths of outer space. At the 4:30 position resides a neat date aperture.
Running this precise timepiece is an in house made manual wound mechanical movement Calibre 02. This movement carries a power reserve of 70 hours and features a 24-hour scale, both features that hold true to the original model this one is commemorating. The Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Black Steel watch replica is outfitted with an Ocean Racer black rubber strap, and is secured with a Black Steel folding clasp. This model like all other Breitling watches enjoys a two year international guarantee.
As you would expect from a luxury timepiece, the watch features a sapphire crystal; perhaps less expected is the perforated rubber strap (though, the strap would be handy if you test out the 30m WR rating at all). Overall, I think the style of the piece is well executed for all that is being placed into the watch. The price is $4,940, however, in our store is $169.00, this watch is now 10% off, buy it now.
