Commemorating Scott Carpenter's extraordinary accomplishment of orbiting the earth 3 times aboard the Aurora 7 capsule - this happened on May 24, 1962. The watch of choice that Mr. Carpenter wore was a Navitimer with a 24 Hour dial - which was necessary as in space there is no night or day. The watch helped distinguish between AM & PM back on earth. Black Dial with Silver Sub-Dials, Luminous Painted Hands & Arabic Numeral Hour Markers.
This watch Features: • Polished finished stainless steel case.
• Solid black dial with silver sub-dials
• The time displayed in 24 hour mode (the hour hand makes 1 full rotation in a 24 hour period) - this feature was designed for space travel.
