Now, in honor of the 60th anniversary of that space flight, perfect replica Breitling UK unveils the Navitimer B02 Chronograph 41 Cosmonaute Limited Edition COSC-certified chronometer watch. Paying homage to the original that Carpenter wore, the looks are incredibly similar, but with updated tweaks.
The AAA quality replica Breitling UK, with circular slide rule bezel designed to help pilots make mathematical calculations for fuel, flight times and more, retains the 24-hour time indication, and offers a column-wheel chronograph. It measures 41mm in diameter and is crafted in stainless steel. It boasts a platinum bezel (unlike the original) and a rich black dial with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association “wings” logo on it. The best 1:1 fake Breitling is offered with either a black alligator strap or a seven-row steel bracelet.
The case back is engraved with several tribute elements, including the date of the Aurora 7 mission, the words “First Swiss wristwatch in space”, and the Swiss movement fake Breitling watch’s number, since each of the 362 watches is numbered. The transparent sapphire back allows for a view of the in-house-made mechanical hand-wound Breitling B02 movement, with its bridges engraved with “Carpenter,” “Aurora 7” and “3 orbits around the Earth.” The top copy watch is created in a limited edition of 362 pieces (a nod to the three orbits around Earth and the year 1962) and retails for $10,800 on strap and $11,200 on steel bracelet.
Joining Swiss replica Breitling at the event was former NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and also on exhibit was a Cosmonaute once owned by astronaut John Glenn and acquired at auction in 2019 by Gregory Breitling.
“When we introduced the redesigned cheap fake Breitling Navitimer earlier this year, a question on everybody’s lips was, ‘What about the Cosmonaute?’ Today, I’m thrilled to finally announce two Cosmonaute reveals: the first-ever public viewing of the watch Scott Carpenter wore into space, and a 60th-anniversary limited-edition timepiece that pays tribute to its history-making forerunner,” said Georges Kern, CEO of Breitling.
