Now, sixty years later, Iconic Replica Breitling pays tribute to its stake as the first Swiss wristwatch in space. For 2022, Breitling unveils the new Navitimer Cosmonaute.
The Cosmonaute has seen many references throughout the generations, but by marking sixty years, Breitling is keen to cement its history and closely follow the original specifications. The new Navitimer Cosmonaute also uses a 24-hour dial. The in-house B02 movement, therefore, is geared for a full rotation of the hour hand every 24-hours.
The Breitling Replica Watches Company three sub-dials break up the continuation of the digits in two-hour increments for the subsidiary seconds at 9 o’clock and the minute and hour chronograph totalizers. At the 6 o’clock position is the date window with a matching black background and white printing.
Breitling Navitimer B02 Chronograph 41 Cosmonaute
While some Cosmonaute references included the date window, most frequently at 4:30, the original Scott Carpenter Cosmonaute did not. This could be a deal-breaker for some, but the new Breitling Cosmonaute Replica is not a 1:1 recreation à la the Ref. 806 or 765 AVI capsule collections.
The hands and indices also have a vintage-hue luminosity to play on the heritage theme. The beige color also stands apart from the regular Navitimer, with its stark black and white contrast.
The tachymeter scale is absent from the Navitimer’s signature slide-rule bezel. As this new Cosmonaute takes inspiration from the original watch, it also honors Carpenter’s request to remove the scale and the tachymeter.
Modernising the Cosmonaute formula
The Best Breitling Replica Review 41mm diameter closely follows the dimensions of its inspiration, but there are some variances. For instance, the dial only mentions “Navitimer,” whereas the original states “Cosmonaute.” This is partly due to Navitimer being a more recognizable model name.
Turning the watch over reveals the in-house B02 movement via the sapphire case-back, with stunning bridge engravings.The Breitling Swiss Replica B02 is based on the B01 but instead has a manually winding mechanism with a 24-hour cycle. Yet, it preserves the 70-hour power reserve and relative slimness due to the lack of a rotor.
As you may glean, Breitling has scrutinized the past while making an appealing watch for today’s market. Adding to this is the protruding shape of the bezel. However, the outer bezel grip material is rendered in platinum for the new model. There’s a premium quality to the inertia and feel of the bezel, but it equates to a higher price in comparison to an all stainless steel watch.
