    Breitling Releases The Emergency II, A Watch That Can Save You If You’re Trapped On The Island

    If trapped on a deserted island, you may want to spend months looking for the Pearl Station and figuring out the smoke monster, you could just pull the antenna out of the Breitling Emergency II and call in a rescue party. The original Emergency watch, designed in the 1990s, sent 121.5 MHz signal that could be heard by rescue craft within 100 miles of the watch. The new model also transmits… Read More

    Breitling Seawolf Chrono: Truly waterproof


    Most watches are called waterproof but they’re really not waterproof. While most will keep water out if left untouched, if you try to engage the chronograph on most pieces the watch will become unstable and could let water in. Breitling has solved this problem by placing magnets on the pushers — the buttons, basically — and another magnet inside the movement. When you press… Read More
