As aviation moved out of its infancy and into a prominent form of transportation, Breitling grew with it. Pilots and adventurers alike have come to trust the Swiss, family owned brand to help them navigate safely across oceans and through space. Daring trips don’t always go perfectly, however, which is why Breitling built the Emergency Watch, a model that just recently announced new colorways.
Measuring in at 51mm and with a case thickness of 21.6mm, the Emergency Watch has a commanding presence on the wrist that is further highlighted further by the bezel, face, and straps that now come in a loud yellow, blue, or orange. Inside of the thick titanium casing is a dual antenna that when deployed sends out a dual frequency signal to the international Cospas Sarasat satellite system. Once transmitted, it triggers an emergency response system that can come rescue you from any predicament, no matter where you are. As far as traditional specs on the watch – it features a super-quartz movement that is ten times as accurate as regular quartz watches, a chronograph that measures up to 1/100th of a second, a digital day and date calendar, and a bi-directional bezel. The titanium case and cambered sapphire glare-proofed crystal are capable of keeping the watch waterproof for up to 164 feet underwater. You can get yours for around $18,000. [Purchase]
