Breitling Emergency Mission

Thanks to its built-in miniaturized transmitter operating on the 121.5 MHz aviation distress frequency, the Emergency by Breitling is universally appreciated by aviation professionals. Introduced in 2002, the Emergency Mission is loaded with many functions which assist pilots during flying.

Featuring a design more similar to that of a traditional chronograph, this model is intended to be a more “civilian” version than the original model: polished steel is used rather than titanium and an analogue display replaces the digital indications. Nonetheless, beneath this apparently “tamer” appearance, the Mission chronograph remains an impressively efficient instrument and the performances of its transmitter are equivalent to those of the distress beacons that are mandatory aircraft equipment.
