Also like the original Navitimer Cosmonaute, this one contains a manual-wind movement, Breitling’s manufacture Caliber B02, which powers a 1/4-second chronograph function with 30-minute and 12-hour counters (at 3 o’clock and 6 o’clock on the dial, respectively); a date indication (in a window at 4:30); and small seconds (at 9 o’clock). The movement has a frequency of 28,800 vph, contains 39 jewels and stores up to 70 hours of power reserve. Like all Breitling movements, Caliber B02 has been chronometer-certified by COSC.
The curved sapphire crystal has been treated on both sides with a glareproof treatment. The caseback showcases an engraving of the official Aurora 7 mission insignia. The Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel comes on a perforated black rubber “Ocean Racer” strap. A limited edition of 1,000 pieces, it retails for $9,590.
