In 2015, S3 (Swiss Space Systems) will host a zero gravity flight experience event for the first time to the public. As the main partner of the project, Breitling will equip each passenger with a specially designed chronograph watch. Registration is now open!
In 1962, the Navitimer Cosmonaute watch was worn on the astronaut Scott Carpenter’s wrist, and experienced the first non-gravity flight, becoming the first cruise in the world. Chronograph in space. Today, the Breitling brand with its wingspan B is the main sponsor of the Swiss Space System S3 program, which aims to ‘space for all’ and has set up a zero gravity flight experience program . The ZeroG (ZeroG) project will be fully launched in 2015 at more than 15 locations worldwide, including Asia, the Middle East, and Central America. At that time, passengers will board an Airbus aircraft to experience about 2 hours of gravity-free flight, including 15 ‘parabolic’ actions or free floating for 20 to 25 seconds, thus providing passengers with an opportunity to experience total weightlessness, as if Just like in space. Each passenger’s flight equipment will include a Breitling chronograph watch specially made for this gravity-free flight.
This S3 ZeroG chronograph uses a light and sturdy black titanium case with a Breitling SuperQuartzTM movement that is more than ten times more accurate than an ordinary quartz movement. The dial and rubber strap are marked with S3 logo, the bottom of the table is engraved with a gravity-free parabolic flight trajectory map. This chronograph will serve as a unique ‘boarding pass’ for each passenger and will not be made publicly available outside of the flight program. After the experience, in addition to the flight suit, passengers can also retain this “professional wrist instrument” with outstanding performance, powerful function and excellent water resistance (up to 100 meters), commemorating this unique and unique order accompanied by Breitling watches. An unforgettable time.
