The exclusive wristwatch is available at Breitling boutiques in New york, New york and Aventura, Florida, as well as at retailers throughout the US. Yves “Jetman” Rossy of the Breitling Jet team once again pushed the boundaries of aviation by completing an amazing flight above the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Jetman, who is the only man to fly with a rigid wing equipped with four jet engines, jumped out of a helicopter above the Rodrigo de Freitas Lake, before stabilizing the wing and heading full throttle north to fly around Corcovado Hill. He then tracked south of the city to fly alongside Ipanema Beach, Copacabana and the famous replica breitling bentley, before pulling his parachute and landing safely on the beach in front of the Copacabana Palace hotel.
The entire feat lasted 11 minutes 35 seconds in all, at an average altitude of 1200 meters, and no problems were reported before, during or after the flight. A former fighter pilot and current Swiss International Air Lines captain, Yves Rossy naturally ensured that all necessary safety measures were in place. Breitling has extended the warranty on its watches with manufacture calibers to five years, from two. The message is an expression of confidence in its enhanced capacity for quality control now that the brand produces its own movements. Breitling made around 40, 000 of its own manufacture calibers last year, including the caliber 01 chronograph http://www.mrjack.co.uk/breitling-navitimer-watches-uk.html, the caliber 04 with second time zone and the caliber 05 world timer.
Breitling’s five-year commitment is commendable at a time when consumers are wondering what all the fuss is about “in-house” movements and what that means to them. If you were an owner of the original Breitling Emergency watch, then you're probably the sort of person that engages in dangerous activities that leave you with a higher than normal chance of being stranded in the middle of nowhere. For the people that need this watch, and perhaps for others who live a normal lifestyle but are a little paranoid of "what if" scenarios, Breitling has just come up with the Emergency II.
In addition to the aforementioned analogue 121. 5MHz transmitter, the Emergency II adds the new digital frequency of 406MHz, which offers enhanced security and more information for rescuers to determine your replica omega Seamaster. More importantly, this frequency allows the launch of a distress signal directly into space to reach the network of low orbit or geostationary satellites. This difference makes the watch infinitely more useful as now no place on earth is off limits. Therefore, if you find yourself in an emergency situation, you twist off the cap of the transmitter and pull the antennae out from both sides of the case. The watch then sends out a distress signal alternating between the 121. 5MHz analogue signal and the 406MHz digital signal, and all this for up to 24 hours. These specifications place the watch in the PLB or Personal Locator Beacon category of the Cospas-Sarsat International Satellite System.
The movement inside is the Breitling Caliber 76, an officially certified chronometer by the COSC with thermocompensated SuperQuartz. Functions include a 12/24-hour analog and LCD digital display, battery end-of-life indicator, 1/100th second chronograph, timer, 2nd timezone and multilingual calendar. There are three dial colors to choose from: black; orange; and yellow and it comes with a rubber strap or a matching titanium bracelet.
