Breitling Emergency II Watch

Breitling Emergency II Watch yellow dial

Breitling introduces the Emergency II watch, a follow up to the Emergency watch.  The watch comes with a pair of emergency transmitters, for those occasions when you’re in need of a rescue (like when you’re stranded on a mountain or in the middle of the ocean).

The first transmitter comes with a 121.5 MHz analog frequency beacon that sends out signals to rescue planes, with a range of 90 nautical miles in normal weather conditions.  The second transmitter is a 406 MHz digital frequency signal that sends out an SOS signal to low-orbiting satellites.  The signals are activated by unscrewing the two caps at the bottom of the watch and pulling out the antennas.  The signals alternate between the two frequencies and last for 24 hours.
