Breitling Emergency II

Post by Ocean » Fri Apr 26, 2013 3:33 am

Breitling has reaffirmed its pioneering role in the field of technical watches and instruments for professionals by creating the very first wristwatch with a built-in personal locator beacon (PLB). The Emergency II is a high-tech gem equipped with a dual frequency transmitter compliant with the specifications of the Cospas-Sarsat international satellite alert system and serving both to issue alerts and to guide search and rescue missions.

I was at my local Breitling AD (HUGE selection) on Saturday and I brought up this watch to the salesman (he seems to know his stuff) and they said they don't have these in yet. The reason being that in order to buy one you must sign a lot of paperwork, legal releases and such so that you know if you pull out the rescue antenna and don't actually need the rescue that you can be held responsible for tying up resources. He also said the rescue can cost up to $10,000 and another $2,000 to reinstall the rescue antenna from Breitling.

On another note, I saw a Montbrilliant chrono with an old, cream colored pilot style dial on an angled 5-link bracelet that made me pop a woody.

If anyone's traveling through Delaware, stop at Ross Simon Jewelers at the Christiana Mall off I95. They have a huge selection of Rolexes and Breitlings. Green subs, DSSD, Cellinis all three Milgausses, Steel Daytonas, and other hard to find Rolexes and an even greater selection of B's.
