BREITLING CELEBRATE THE LAUNCH OF THE BREITLING EMERGENCY II, THE ULTIMATE HIGH-TECH SURVIVAL INSTRUMENT IN ALL DISTRESS SITUATIONS ON LAND, AT SEA AND IN THE AIR
LONDON, 26th November, 2014/- To celebrate the launch of the Breitling Emergency II, the Swiss watch brand hosted a party on board the iconic warship HMS Belfast in London.
The Breitling Emergency II is the first ever wristwatch to feature a dual frequency personal locator beacon. This miniaturized transmitter and antenna system, developed in conjunction with the specifications of the Cospas Sarsat international satellite system, serves both to issue alerts and to guide search and rescue missions.
The event was attended by special guests of the brand including pilots and military personnel as well as adventurers Neil Laughton and Quentin Smith, a pilot rescued from his life raft after he deployed his Breitling Emergency in the Antarctic in 2003.
All eyes were on the Thames as the Emergency Night Mission – the ultra-cool all black titanium version of the watch - arrived under a veil of darkness, delivered by a Stealth 710 vessel equipped with state of the art anti-detection systems.
Of the event, Breitling UK Managing Director Gavin Murphy says:
“It is very fitting for Breitling to be hosting the launch of the Emergency II on board HMS Belfast. Not only does Breitling have a long heritage of working with the military in the UK but also the ship itself when built was equipped with the most advanced radar systems of the time; this pioneering spirit is reflected in everything Breitling does and nowhere more so than the second generation Emergency”
The watch is available to purchase nationwide from certified Breitling stockists.
Breitling Emergency II RRP from £12,040 and Emergency II Night Mission RRP from £13,570
