Developed in 1952, the Navitimer has become the undisputed pilot’s watch with its rotary aviation slide rule for all the calculations you need in flight. But in the early 1960s, it was time for the space race, and another race was secretly underway, this time with watchmakers vying to develop the world’s first astronaut’s watch. On May 24, 1962, when Scott Carpenter flew Mercury Atlas 7 on his wrist, the Navitimer Cosmonaut officially became the world’s first Swiss wristwatch chronograph to fly into space, and Breitling Here, too, he showed the world his technological prowess in the sky. This model was a version of the iconic Navitimer that added a 24-hour dial to distinguish between day and night in the darkness of space, in response to his personal request. The Mercury Atlas 7 made its way into the history of aviation and watchmaking when it landed in the Atlantic Ocean after three orbits of the Earth.
