Mercury astronaut’s long lost space-flown watch found in Breitling archives

Long thought to be lost to history, the first Swiss-made watch to be worn in space has been found just in time to celebrate the 60th anniversary of its mission.

Breitling on Tuesday (May 24) revealed the watch that Mercury astronaut Scott Carpenter used (opens in new tab) on the United States’ second orbital spaceflight. The event, which was held in Zurich with members of the Carpenter and Breitling family in attendance, as well as Breitling brand ambassador (opens in new tab) and former NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, also introduced a new Navitimer Cosmonaute watch styled after the original.
