Breitling has just unveiled the Blacksteel version of the Navitimer Cosmonaute. With its trademark 24-hour dial, the Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel also features the in-house B02 movement.
50 years ago Lt Commander Scott Carpenter orbited the Earth in the Aurora 7 spacecraft with a Breitling Cosmonaute ref. 809 on his wrist. It was Lt Cmdr Carpenter who first mooted the idea of a 24 hour version of the classic ref. 806 Navitimer in the late fifties because it enabled him to keep track of the time while in space.
