Scott Carpenter was the first man to wear the Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute in space, when the Aurora 7 capsule orbited the earth thrice on the 24th of May 1962. Thus this timepiece became the first Breitling chronograph to traverse the expanse of space.
The Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute RB0210B5/BC19/744P/R20D.1 sports a round, black dial with Arabic numerals and baton style indexes in white and grey. Its date aperture is positioned between 3 o’clock and 6 o’clock and the three sub-dials are positioned at 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock consecutively. A cambered, glareproof sapphire crystal protects the dial from external wear and tear. The mechanics of this timepiece are encompassed by a 43 mm, 18 carat gold case. A bidirectional bezel is mounted on the case and features a slide rule, which allows pilots to deal with complex calculations. Attached to the side of the bezel is a winding screw that can be locked. The bezel also features two stopwatch push buttons at either of its sides. A black, crocodile leather strap has been specially designed for comfort. It comes with a tested deployment clasp that enables easy fastening of the timekeeper to the wrist.
The watch has a mechanical Breitling Caliber 2 movement. It has a power reserve of 70 hours and beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour. It is water resistant to a depth of 30 meters and is safe from minor splashes of water.
The Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute features 24-hour graduation. In space this facet is an imperative, and is used to tell the difference between night and day.
Coined from the words navigator and timer, the Navitimer is one of the most legendary collections by Breitling. The birth of the Navimeter as an idea preceded its execution by decades, with the Breitling Chronomat in 1942. Willy Breitling collaborated with the mathematician Marcel Robert to design a slide rule bezel that made the calculation of complex logarithmic values possible. This led to the development of a scale that incorporated the three units necessary for aerial navigation- STAT, KM and NAUT. Pilots all over the world could now perform complicated calculations such as fuel consumption, average or climbing speeds, and so on, by using their Navitimer, which doubled as a calculator. Since its launch in 1952 till today, more than 60 years after its release, the Navimeter has undergone several changes, including an evolution from the manual Venus 178 movement in 1952 to the highly modern automatic movement in 1969, though the side rule bezel has remained a constant component. The first editions of the Navimeter 806 are today highly sought after collectibles.
With dial diameters ranging from 43-48mm, each watch from the Navimeter collection is bold and historically suited for aircraft navigators, by providing easy visibility even in poor lighting. The most distinctive feature of timepieces from this line is the aviation slide rule, perfect for complex calculations such as conversions from kilometres to nautical miles. Some newer models come with a transparent case back that allows an insight into the immaculate working of Breitling’s certified automatic movement.Though the dials are mainly traditional panda or reverse panda coloured, other hues are available for some of the more adventurous wearers. A wide variety of strap or bracelet options are also offered.
The Navimeter boasts the post of being the official time keeper for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, proving its mettle when it comes to impeccable timekeeping. The collection finds admirers in personalities from all walks of life, including the American actor and pilot John Travolta and French singer Serge Gainsbourg.
