We all know that the Apollo project of the US was started in 1962 and it was exactly this year, another project in the US – Mercury Hercules 7 mission was completed successfully. As the second astronaut flying around the world, Scott Carpenter wore the perfect Breitling Navitimer replica watch at that moment.
On May 24 of 1962, Scott Carpenter flied around the earth 3 times in the Aurora 7 capsule. The black dial copy Breitling helped him distinguish the day time and night time. Therefore, it became the first wristwatch travelling in the space. While Omega Speedmaster was the first watch entering the moon.
No matter in exploring the space or decorating in daily life, the significance of the existence of the watches is particularly important.
