Breitling replica watches will surprise you with their unexpected functions and bold innovations.
The Breitling Emergency watch will make you feel like a movie hero who would not yield to panic even if after an airplane crash he found himself somewhere at a deserted island.
The Breitling Emergency is a watch that has no analogues in the world. It was developed specially for airplane pilots and crew who survived in a plane wreck or came through a forced landing to transmit an emergency signal on the 121.5 MHz aircraft emergency frequency in order to attract the attention of rescue-team. The frequency is monitored by Cospas-Sarsat, an international search-and-rescue operation.
The timepiece is supplied with a built-in transmitter developed to rescue its owner in the critical situation. You would notice the thick knob located just southeast from the watch face that has to be turned until it snaps. Running from the watch body to the protective cap is a 43-cm, thin wire antenna that has to be pulled out fully. When the protective cap is unscrewed and the antenna is pulled out, the signal will be activated and broadcasted for 48 hours, covering a range of about 100 miles.
The Breitling Emergency quartz watch is powered by two quartz batteries. The batteries that operate the watch are separate from those that power the transmitter. Any watch connoisseur would agree that a watch that makes you look and feel like a courageous pilot should also look cool. The large timepiece features a 43mm case that is 15.70mm thick, while weighing 84.6 grams. The watch is equipped with two digital displays - one on the top half of the dial and one on the bottom half. The day and date are displayed on the digital readout in a very legible way. The easily-read time is demonstrated with the help of a minutes and hour hands. The timepiece also demonstrates a bi-directional bezel with a compass scale. All the range of 11 styles of Breitling watches from the Emergency collection are water-resistant up to 100 feet and greatly vary in price from $3,100 to $55,000.
Breitling also developed a chronograph version of the Emergency named the Emergency Mission that is more traditional looking, not having a digital display on the dial.
When the emergency situation is over, the beacon signal should be terminated. The watch's owner is required to take the watch to the factory to have the beacon rearmed after one use. It is not advisable to set the beacon off lightly as there is the $100,000 fine determined by the Federal Aviation Administration, as well as significant search-and-rescue costs for a false rescue.
