On May 24th, 1962, the Aurora 7 space capsule, with astronaut Scott Carpenter and his Navitimer Cosmonaute aboard, splashed down safely in the Atlantic. The recovery operation lasted three hours, with the long exposure to seawater resulting in damage to Carpenter’s Cosmonaute. Breitling immediately replaced it, but that piece of space history has remained in the Breitling family archives—unrestored and widely unknown—ever since.
On May 24th, 2022, that great space watch was exhibited publicly for the first time, exactly 60 years after it made its historic space flight.
