Breitling has had a number of interesting developments over the past few weeks, this is another. This new watch is the official "ZeroG" flight watch for the S3 company, also known as Swiss Space Systems. The company is preparing to launch their first commercial zero-gravity flight during which participants will be given this Breitling Chronograph S3. Not only will they wear the 43mm titanium watch while in flight, but they will be able to keep it as a souvenir to remind them of their experience. The "ZeroG" flights will launch in 2015 and will include 15 "sessions" of weightlessness where the passengers will be given 20 to 25 seconds to try out their new freedom. Inside of the watch is the Breitling Caliber 73, a "superquartz" movement that is COSC certified and is, as claimed by Breitling, 10 times more accurate than a normal quartz movement. That's pretty good. The watches will be provided free of charge on the flight, but of course, the flight costs a pretty penny. Don't expect to see these watches on the wrists of many people.
