Breitling Emergency Watches.

Breitling has already established itself as a major player in the watch industry. Breitling watches have for a long time had a connection with the military. In around the mid-1900’s, Breitling was already manufacturing military-grade watches for the Royal Air Force and the US Army. In 1995, the company’s new owner, Ernest Schneider, developed the first Breitling Emergency watch. It was the first of its kind as it featured an internal locator beacon. This made it the perfect watch for explorers and risk takers.

Breitling Emergency II.

The original Breitling Emergency was already working wonders when it came to search and rescue. People with the watch were more easily found when they encountered emergencies. However, in 2009 there was a rise in false alarms. Even though the false alarms did not affect Breitling, they still decided to improve their technology. This led to the development of the Breitling II in 2013.
