Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel Watch

Breitling introduces the “Blacksteel” version of its Navitimer Cosmonaute which also features the in-house B02 movement.  Breitling’s Blacksteel watches – those with black DLC finished steel cases — are quite popular and among my favorite versions of many of Breitling’s models.  Incidentally, this is the high end of what I would consider a “limited edition” watch, and while it is still a decently sized production number it is a meaningful restriction for a large, global brand such as Breitling.  The Blacksteel Navitimer Cosmonaute features the Navitimer’s trademark 24-hour dial and circular slide rule bezel.  It is limited to 1000 pieces and will price at a (rather hefty) $9,590.

Did You Know?

On May 24th 1962, Lt Commander Scott Carpenter orbited the earth three times aboard the Aurora 7 capsule. On his wrist was a Navitimer featuring a 24-hour graduation serving to distinguish day from a night – an absolute necessity in space. This space conquest pioneer joined the Breitling collections under the name Cosmonaute.
