Breitling launches the Emergency Night Mission watch
October 13, 2016: The world’s first wristwatch with built-in dual frequency personal locator beacon, watchmaker Breitling has issued three special editions combining a black titanium case with orange or yellow accents, or a blue mother-of-pearl dial.
With its miniaturized transmitter and original integrated antenna system, the Breitling Emergency is synonymous with all-terrain safety for professionals and adventurers around the globe. The ultralight and sturdy titanium case is distinguished by its black color, achieved by a high-resistance carbon-based treatment. The satin-brushed finishes guarantee a “stealth”, glare-free appearance designed for the riskiest operations.
The Breitling Emergency belongs to the Personal Locator Beacon category and incorporates a dual frequency transmitter complying with the requirements of the international Cospas-Sarsat satellite system, thereby serving both to trigger alerts and to guide search and rescue operations. Designed as an authentic instrument for professionals, it is also equipped with a multifunction Breitling SuperQuartz electronic chronograph movement ten times more accurate than standard quartz, and officially chronometer-certified.
