For the West it was a great shock: on April 12, 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin made a flight around the Earth aboard the spacecraft Vostok 1, becoming the first human in space. However, the West is catching up fast. On May 24, 1962, it was the turn of the astronaut Scott Carpenter, who on board Aurora 7 as part of the Mercury mission three times orbited the planet. On his wrist was luxury US replica Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute watches designed specifically for this purpose. It is the first Swiss watch in space.
Launched in 1952, the high quality Breitling Navitimer fake watches – whose name is a combination of the words “navigation” and “timepiece” – contributed to the brand’s reputation as a watch for pilots. This model has a zipper as a frame. You can use it to multiply, divide and calculate energy consumption. You can also judge if there is enough fuel left for the flight to Honolulu. The cheap Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute replica watches also has a zipper.
It is easy to tell on Earth whether it is morning or evening. But not in space. That’s why astronaut Scott Carpenter explicitly asked then-Breitling boss Willy Breitling for a 24-hour display. And got it.
The Swiss made Breitling copy watches that Scott Carpenter wore still exists. Gregory Breitling, Willy’s son, recently showed him to the public. Changes in atmospheric pressure during the mission strained the 1:1 Breitling replica watches’ water resistance, and it was exposed to seawater for a long time about how the capsule crashed in the Atlantic Ocean. Rust has grown under the slide in all shades of yellow, orange and red. In 2019, Gregory Breitling bought this AAA best Breitling super clone watches at an auction for 156 thousand. $ 250
In 1884, Leon Breitling founded a highly successful company under the leadership of Willy Breitling. However, in 1979, after the quartz crisis (this is what the watchmaking industry calls the period in the 1970s, when quartz replica Breitling watches for sale appeared on the market, causing the sales of mechanical watches to collapse), the company had to close the business.
Ernest Schneider, an avid amateur pilot, brought it back to life in 1982. The company is now majority owned by the investment firm CVC. Morgan Stanley estimates the company’s turnover at approximately CHF 680 million, placing it in 11th place among Swiss watch brands.
To celebrate its inception and the anniversary of Scott Carpenter’s mission, Breitling presents the top fake Breitling Navitimer B02 Cosmonaute Limited Edition watches. Among the new attributes are the platinum bezel and the clear sapphire crystal back of the case. There were 362 copies of this watch with the engraving “First Wristwatch in Space”.
