Breitling Introduces The Emergency Watch

Breitling unveiled this week, its latest timepiece, the Emergency Watch.

The watch, which literally saves lives, has gained approval from the FCC to be sold in the U.S. It's the first wrist-worn beacon with a dual Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) in the world. The innovative dual frequency micro-transmitter is able to send a distress beacon to rescuers on land, ships at sea and airborne aircraft through the 121.5 MHz frequency and satellite transmissions through the 406 MHz frequency.

Aside from being a personal survival instrument, the watch is also an electronic chronograph featuring all the functions useful to professionals and adventurers: 12/24-hour analog and digital display, 1/100th second chronograph, alarm, timer, second time zone, multi-lingual calendar and battery end-of-life indication.

It also boasts thermo-compensated SuperQuartz movement, ten times more accurate than standard quartz and chronometer-certified by the COSC.

The Breitling Emergency will be available soon at Breitling boutiques in New York, Orlando, Las Vegas and Miami, as well as authorized retailers throughout the U.S. For more info, visit
