Description

Breitling Cosmonaute – SN 901
Breitling will be forever associated with the aviation industry. Its Navitimer model was a standard issue in the 1960s and 1970s for commercial and military pilots. The Cosmonaute, however, is very much a niche product. Designed for space exploration, the watch was launched in 1961, and Scott Carpenter was the first American astronaut to wear a Cosmonaute on the Mercury-Aurora 7 program launch in 1962.
The steel case measures 40 mm. The distinct 24-hour dial is in pristine condition. The chronograph pushers are original and have not been replaced. The manual wind movement calibre 178 is completely unmolested and in excellent working order. Overall a beautiful and rare example of this highly collectable watch.
Diameter 40 mm.
Fitted with a later Breitling strap (blue) and buckle.
