Breitling Emergency Night Mission

This is the world’s first wristwatch with built-in dual frequency personal locator beacon is now available in three special editions combining a black titanium case with orange or yellow accents, or a blue mother of-pearl dial.


With its miniaturized transmitter and its original integrated antenna system, the Breitling Emergency is synonymous with all-terrain safety for professionals and adventurers. It now combines this exceptional performance with three new exteriors accentuating its feat-driven mission.

The ultra-light and sturdy titanium case is distinguished by its black color, achieved by a high-resistance carbon-based treatment. The satin-brushed finishes guarantee“stealth”, glare-free appearance designed for the riskiest operations.

On the first special version of this Emergency Night Mission, the orange hands and hour-markers as well as the rubber strap in the same vivid color create a powerful contrast with the black case and dial. This distinctive opposition is picked up on the second model, available in black and yellow. Meanwhile, the third edition hits a more refined note with its shimmering midnight blue mother-of-pearl dial echoed by a matching rubber strap.


The Breitling Emergency belongs to the Personal Locator Beacon category and incorporates a dual frequency transmitter complying with the requirements of the international Cospas-Sarsat satellite system, thereby serving both to trigger alerts and to guide search and rescue operations. Designed as an authentic instrument for professionals, it is also equipped with a multifunction Breitling SuperQuartzTM electronic chronograph movement ten times more accurate than standard quartz, and officially chronometer-certified.

The watches are priced from £15,340 for the yellow and orange dial versions and £15,720 for the mother of pearl dial.
