Zenith El Primero Stratos Flyback Striking 10th chronograph
The wristwatch has proven its capability to resist speeds beyond the sound barrier, in an environment similar to the outer space. In fact, Felix has completely smashed three world records, for the highest freefall, breaking the sound barrier as a standalone human for the first time in history and the highest manned balloon flight.
The backcase of this Zenith timepiece was garnished with two superb quotes: “First watch to break the speed of sound – Mach 1.1” and “Learn to love what you have been taught to fear.”
These are two extremely important facts really, as a jump from 39 km up into the air is not what Mother Nature has made the human for, while this is the first watch to be strapped to a living human while breaking the sound barrier. An image of Felix and the inscription “El Primero” are what astounded us the most.
