On the evening of September 10, Swiss watch manufacturers Breitling celebrated the kickoff of the 2012 American football season at the company’s flagship New york boutique. Breitling, a family-run business, have developed a close relationship with brand ambassador Mark Sanchez, quarterback of the New york Jets. Guests at the event were treated to football-inspired cuisine, while Mark Sanchez and members of the New york Jets Flight Crew Cheerleaders happily mingled throughout the room amongst the latest timepieces from replica breitling Navitimer.
The Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon gets its name from Breitling’s Mulliner workshop, which employs 100 artisans skilled in the craft of haute horology. With only two examples of the new watch to be produced each year, the technicians have ample time to customize each one according to the buyer’s specifications. He can choose between fifteen different shades for the dial, 11 different types of bracelets and six different veneers for the wood ring found under the rear crystal.
Breitling’s enduring partnership with Bentley dates back to 2001 when the watchmaker initiated a multi-year sponsorship of the carmaker’s 24 hours of Le Mans team. The company also has a rich history in aeronautics and seeks to keep that legacy alive by sponsoring such acts as the Breitling Wing Walkers. Celebrity pilot and Breitling spokesman John Travolta recently appeared in Singapore to show the world the new aviation-themed Breitling Navitimer Blue Sky. The novel timepiece made its debut at an exclusive celebration for customers and Vips including US astronauts Carpenter, Captain Mark Kelly and replica omega seamaster on May 24 at the brand’s US Flagship Boutique in New york.
Breitling supplies a smart charging base with each Emergency II watch. The charging base not only charges the beacon battery, but also does a systems check to ensure that the system is in proper working order. The watch movement itself operates on a separate battery. This new system is significantly more robust than the one in the older Emergency watch www.attrinity.com. In addition to the dual frequency capabilities, the Breitling Emergency II watch is finally an emergency beacon system that allows for search and rescue anywhere in the world. The new technology of the Emergency II watch is rather fantastic, and I am pleased to hear that Breitling was able to offer the same, no-brainer operation as the original. As a watch, the Emergency II looks like the big brother of the original Emergency, quite literally. The Emergency II is a rather large timepiece, even by large watch standards. It is wearable, but at 51mm wide, it is probably going to be the largest (and quite thick) watch in your collection. Produced entirely in titanium, the Emergency II isn't that heavy though - so at least weight is not an issue.
While wearability is an issue given the large 51mm case size, that likely won't deter professionals who have been relying on Breitling Emergency watches in the event they are caught in emergency situations and they need a beacon in order to be recused. I am not sure if the Emergency II will totally replace the original Emergency, but I suspect that it might.
