One fail safe accessory is high-end watches. But we are inundated with choices. What if we told you there’s a watch which can save your life? In 1995, Breitling developed the first wristwatch with a built-in emergency microtransmitter. Operating on the 121.5 MHz international air distress frequency, the Emergency was designed to enable accurate homing in on pilots or passengers following a plane crash. It was designed for constant wear on the wrist and thus as a complement to the standard onboard aircraft equipment.
The Emergency was tested and worn in daily use by the finest aviation professionals and the world’s greatest aeronautical teams. It has proven its worth in many search and rescue exercises and has become synonymous with safety and reliability for pilots around the globe. Around 40,000 such watches have been sold, and these exceptional instruments for locating and rescuing people in danger have indeed already saved a number of lives. Building on this successful and extensive experience, Breitling has achieved a new and unprecedented technical feat in presenting the Emergency II.
The Emergency II is equipped with a microtransmitter alternately operating on two separate frequencies over a 24-hour period. It transmits a first digital signal on the 406 MHz frequency intended for satellites and lasting 0.44 seconds every 50 seconds; as well as a second analog signal on the 121.5 MHz homing and rescue frequency, lasting 0.75 seconds every 2.25 seconds. Though this watch is not cheap, as it comes from the Breitling brand, can you put a price on your personal safety?
The Emergency II starts at: $15,750.
