On May 24, 1962, astronaut Scott Carpenter wore the Navitimer Cosmonaute three times around the Earth during the Mercury-Atlas 7 mission aboard the Aurora 7 capsule. On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the mission, and in tribute to the original Cosmonaute model, Breitling presents the new replica Breitling Navitimer B02 Chronograph 41 Cosmonaute PB02301A1B1P1, a 362-piece limited edition that retains all the hallmarks of the legendary chronograph: the circular calculating scale used to perform mathematical operations, the calculations of the aircraft owner and the “wing” of the Pilot’s Association. The “wings” logo of the pilots’ association and the chronograph subdial trio.
A personal request from Carpenter, this watch is a variation of the aviator’s watch replica, and the new Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute replica watch faithfully reproduces the original, with a few differences. One of them is the bezel of the 41 mm x 13 mm case made of platinum, which makes this limited edition even more unique. With a 24-hour dial to distinguish between day and night in the darkness of space. The new reference PB02301A1B1P1 replica is not just a reissue of the spacecraft – it is a decidedly luxurious approach to one of the earliest known astronaut-specific watches. Certainly a far cry in terms of materials and movement from the Ref. 809 once worn by John Glenn in his pioneering performance in Earth orbit in 1962, but equally strong in a proper, unadorned Cosmonaute atmosphere.
The Breitling Navitimer B02 Chronograph 41 Cosmonaute replica Ref. PB02301A1B1P1, with its open sapphire crystal caseback, showcases the hand-wound Breitling Manufacture caliber 02, which beats at 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour) and has a power reserve of 70 hours.
Special bridge engravings celebrate the 1962 mission: the words “Carpenter”, “Aurora 7” and “3 laps around the Earth”, as well as the inscriptions chosen for NASA’s first manned space flight. The names of the first seven astronauts selected for NASA’s first manned space flight, Mercury 7.
