There’s room for more than one watch in space, right? You know about Omega’s Moonwatch, of course — everybody does. But there’s more than a handful of other luxury fake watches uk with stellar stories to tell.
In 1962, NASA astronaut Scott Carpenter wore a 1:1 replica Breitling Navitimer when he circled the Earth three times aboard the Aurora 7 spacecraft. That was 60 years ago, and Breitling is marking the anniversary with a limited edition watch called the cheap fake Breitling Navitimer B02 Chronograph 41 Cosmonaute.
What’s cool about this AAA fake Breitling Navitimer aside from it having been in space and just being a version of the already iconic Navitimer? Several things.
First is that it features a 24-hour dial — that is, it displays time in a 24-hour format rather than the typical 12. Understandably, astronauts can lose perspective of time when separated from the Earth’s familiar rotation and its relationship to the sun, and Carpenter had specially requested this feature from the brand.
Then, of course, there’s the luxury super clone watch’s role in history. This was early on in the space race, Yuri Gagarin having only become the first person in space the previous year, and Carpenter was one of the first people to orbit the earth. From a horological perspective, high quality replica Breitling UK calls this watch “the first Swiss wristwatch in space.”
Not the first watch, but the first Swiss copy wristwatch. And a (Swiss) Heuer stopwatch (non-time-telling) made it beyond the atmosphere a couple months prior. So this is a very technical “first,” but the watch’s story, significance and cool factor easily stand on their own.
Aside from its 24-hour dial/functionality and commemorative branding on its caseback, this cheap fake Breitling Navitimer has several other special features. Its distinctive bezel here is rendered in platinum, and its caseback features a sapphire crystal window for viewing top replica Breitling’s manually wound, in-house B02 movement inside.
In most other ways, however, this is a faithful reproduction of the original watch and easily recognizable as a Navitimer. Its 41mm sizing is perfect, if you ask us. The Swiss movement replica Breitling Navitimer B02 Chronograph 41 Cosmonaute watch is limited to 362 examples and available for preorder now at a price of $11,200.
