At the Baselworld
watch expo that wrapped up yesterday in Switzerland, luxury timepiece brand Breitling
unveiled a real-life James Bond gadget: the world’s first watch with a dual frequency locator beacon. Better yet, the stylish luxury timepiece does double duty as a high-tech search-and-rescue instrument. The Emergency II, with a steel case and yellow dial, is priced at $15,750 and is fully compliant with the Cospas-Sarsat international satellite alert system which serves to both issue alerts and guide search and rescue missions. Developed in conjunction with a major scientific institute specializing in aerospace, defense and industry, the Emergency II also features a revolutionary rechargeable battery and an integrated antenna system.
