Felix Baumgartner Sets World Record 24 Mile Jump From Space


Felix Baumgartner Sets World Record

Skydiver Breaks Sound Barrier
24 Mile Jump From Space

Felix Baumgartner just became the first free-falling human being to break the sound barrier, by leaping from the stratosphere high above New Mexico, from a balloon-lifed capsule. 

In doing so he set an all new world record by becoming the first man to jump to earth from high up in the earth's stratosphere at 24 miles up, and he actually flew or moved faster than the speed of sound. He did this on the 65th anniversary of Chuck Yeager's original Speed Of Sound Record.


Felix's mom is pictured below as she looks up at her son as he is attempting to set his world record. A few readers sent in this image pointing out it appears she is wearing a ladies Rolex. Definitely looks like an Oyster bracelet to me.

The watch is probably a Zenith as the attempt was sponsored by them.

Aren't the links on Mrs. Baumgartner's watch going the wrong way for an Oyster bracelet? And the clasp looks to be a side-pinch release or something similar. My guess would be maybe Citizen or Tag instead...

I noticed the clasp has a pinch to release mechanism as well. IMHO it's not a Rolex.
