Lot No.: 317

Sold for (£): 2,280

The Cosmonaute began life over forty years ago as a 24-hour version of the much-loved Navitimer pilot's watch. The following year it was worn in space during the second orbital flight by an American astronaut. This example has a Stainless steel case with rotating gold bezel and screw back. The 24 hour dial is black in colour with black/silver chapter rings and gold subdials. The movement is Eta with chronograph and date function and is automatic winding. Cosmonautes are getting harder to find and in this sharp condition tend to get snapped up by collectors and enthusiasts.
