The story

The Emergency is the world’s first wristwatch equipped with an authentic dual-frequency distress beacon. It’s the indispensable safety and survival instrument for adventurers on any given mission. Breitling has made a name for itself at the forefront of innovation by creating the Emergency. A marvel of miniaturization and technical sophistication, the Emergency is the first wristwatch to be equipped with an authentic dual-frequency distress beacon. Once activated, the distress beacon will emit an alert signal that will guide rescue operations. Available both in titanium and DLC-coated titanium, the Emergency features a black dial paired either with a matching titanium bracelet, or a rubber strap fitting a folding buckle. Powered by the Breitling Caliber 76, a COSC-certified SuperQuartz™ chronograph, the Emergency features a rechargeable battery, a miniaturized transmitter, and an original integrated antenna system.
