Breitling Launch Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel
Swiss watchmakers Breitling have released a special blacksteel edition of its Navitimer Cosmonaute timepiece - the brand's first space-worn wristwatch.
Created to mark the 50th anniversay of the Navitimer Cosmonaute, the new model boasts an all black silhouette designed using a highly resistant carbon-based coating.
Featuring a manual winding system and a 24-hour display that distinguishes between day and night, the watch is powered by the Breitling Caliber B02 movement and has a 70-hour power reserve.
Other notable components include a dial and subdials drenched in black and enhanced by luminescent indicators and small red hands, an official Aurora 7 mission insignia on the watch’s caseback, and a black rubber strap.
The Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel is available in a limited run of 1,000 pieces, each priced at $11320.
Breitling was founded by Léon Breitling in Bern, Switzerland in 1884.
