Breitling Cosmonaute Limited Edition

       Venturing to break the limits of time and space, Breitling introduces in 2010 an incredible timepiece designed for space travel and for professional users of this sort of instruments. Celebrating its 125th anniversary, Breitling decided to remodel one of the old versions of Cosmonaute watches released back in the 1960’s. The new models belonging to the Cosmonaute 2010 collection will be available in a limited edition of just 1000 pieces that pay tribute to the proficient collection of the past. Famous for the 24 –hour dial, the Cosmonaute Limited Edition collection presents a sporty and adventurous design, characterized by extreme legibility and amazing technical performance.

       The 41.50 mm in diameter case of the new Breitling Cosmonaute watch shows that Breitling takes things seriously, as this size guarantees the space for a multitude of functions to be performed. Crafted from stainless steel, steel and hold or 18 K red gold, the case’s construction assures 3 bars of water resistance. The dial is equipped with functions of hours, minutes and seconds, chronograph’s functions and a flyback function.


       The technical movement equipping this watch was the result of years of technical expertise manifested by the Breitling’s designers and it bears the name of Caliber 22, exclusively manufactured by Breitling. Apart for the most desirable reliability, this technical movement assures the working of the functions of time, those of the chronograph and also those related to the flyback function. The mechanical self-winding movement also guarantees 42 hours of power reserve, always an important component at a watch.

       The most interesting version of the new Breitling Cosmonaute watch is the one based on the steel case featuring yellow sub-dials and yellow detailing on the margins of the unidirectional bezel. Quite modern, the new Breitling Cosmonaute watch prevents confusion between day time and night-time due to its 24 hour dial indicator, an unordinary manner of displaying time in the watch manufacturing industry.


       A professional watch for professionals, the new Breitling Cosmonaute watch is based on the Navitimer chronograph, a mechanism tested in 1962 by the famous cosmonaut Scott Carpenter in the Aurora 7 orbital mission. Definitely worth having, this watch shows a dedicated sense to innovation and novelty embraced by the designers from Breitling and proves the pioneering spirit of the people working behind this exquisite brand of watches.

       Portraying vision and progress, the new Breitling Cosmonaute watch inspires buyers to adventure and dynamic lifestyle and brings back the idea of action in a world where people have become more and more sedentary.
