The Breitling Emergency was originally design for pilots and aircrews. It is a watch with a built-in micro-transmitter broadcasting at aircraft emergency frequency and is designed to complement the distress signalling equipment of any aircraft. Following a crash the 'Emergency' will broadcast a signal on which rescuers can home in.
This example of the emergency has recently been serviced by Breitling and comes with it's original box and papers. The box includes a VHS cassette instruction manual. The watch papers are stamped and dated 1999.
The case diameter is 43mm.
The transmitter is activated (for 48 hours) by unscrewing a protective cap and pulling the antenna out fully. Over flat terrain or calm seas, the transmitter signal has a range of about 160Km (assuming the search aircraft is flying at an altitude of 6000m).NOTE: Battery Changes on the Breitling Emergency Watches should be performed by authorized AD as the battery change is quite complicated.
