Breitling cosmonaute ref 809

Malcom Scott Carpenter (May 1, 1925 – October 10, 2013), is the reason why we have the Breitling Cosmonaute as we know it today. He was one of the original astronauts selected to be part of NASA’s Project Mercury in April of 1959, After wearing his 12-hour Navitimer during his time as a combat pilot in the Korean War, he suggested that Breitling produce a Navitimer with a 24-hour dial. Breitling registered the name "Cosmonaute" in 1961, and in 1962, a modified Navitimer with a 24-hour dial was the first Breitling to go to space. The Cosmonaute was manufactured in the early to mid-1960s with various dial configurations, bezel combinations, logos, and metals, and all were powered by the Venus 178 movement. Among the numerous variations that were produced, this example has the two-plane logo with the name “Cosmonaute” in gilt color, which adds to the charm of the overall look.
