This watch can boast to being the first ever chronograph that went to space. The story goes that on 24th May 1962 a daring young man, Scott Carpenter, orbited the earth an astonishing 3 times aboard the aurora 7 capsule. The Breitling Navitimer Chronograph that he had with him was the only way that he could distinguish between night and day, thus, the Navitimer Cosmonaut was born.
This legendary watch is powered with a 'Breitling 02' hand-wound mechanical movement and features a split-second chronograph with a trio of white sub-dials that are set onto a beautiful black dial.
