Even though the Breitling watches have lost some of their popularity, it looks like they are making a comeback. Many readers have asked me questions about the Breitling Emergency replica and I thought it was time for a new watch review.
The Breitling Emergency
This watch is the result of the continuous dedication to pilots. After all, this is what stands at the basis of this brand. It’s not only a timekeeping instrument, but also a life saving instrument. Its name is perfect for what it does. It’s just what you need in emergency situations.
Breitling isn’t only a luxury Swiss timepiece maker, but it also is a professional purpose watches supplier for military personnel.
The first Emergency was launched in 1995 and the newer version, Emergency II was released in 2003. The Breitling Emergency has a backup transmitter for lost pilots or adventurers. If you’re wondering who it works, it’s pretty simple. It’s part timepiece, part radio transmitter. The original model was the first wristwatch equipped with a built-in micro transmitter. It has the capacity to broadcast an emergency signal at 121.5MHz. So, it ensures the safety of the wearer. It is capable to transmit its coordinates on two separate frequencies. The digital signal provides essential details such as the code of the country in which the beacon was registered and its serial number.
Breitling Emergency Design
With regards to its design, the Emergency is a large watch. It has a 51mm width, so, if you’re interested in buying the Breitling Emergency replica, it might be the largest watch in your collection. Due to the titanium case and bracelet, it’s a fairly light watch. It features a rugged appearance because of the satin brushed metal.
On its dial you can notice that the 3,6 and 9 are have bigger sizes that the other numerals. It also features a LED window that indicates the battery life. When it’s time to charge it, it flashes. Its overall look is of a high-end sport watch.
Breitling Emergency Movement
This timepieces is powered by a COSCo-certified SuperQuartz chronometer movements. As you may already know I think that the Quartz movement is more practical and probably that’s exactly what the makers had in mind for this watch.
What To Look For In A Breitling Emergency Replica
The prices of the original timepiece vary. You can buy it for amounts from $18.825 to $ 18.745. If you don’t have that kind of money, fake Breitling watches can be a great alternative. I don’t own a Breitling Emergency replica, but I tried to find some sites that sell it. After a first Google search, I found a few replica websites. I can tell you right from the start that I didn’t find any good Breitling Emergency replica. All the websites selling it are those that seem a bit shady to me. For example, let’s take the Watchesforever (Watchjust) website.
If you read my past blog posts, you already know a bit about these guys. As I said before, I don’t find it a reliable website. Their fake Breitling watches (and not only) have a cheap look. I have received many comments from buyers that were lured by the small prices and only got some cheap looking watches. The one plus this website has is the broad selection of watch models and brands.
Anyway, going back at what to look for in an Emergency replica. Comparing this replica with the authentic one, you can see that the luminosity of the quartz display is really low. Besides that, the emergency beacon is totally missing from this timepiece. The numerals you should find on the bezel are also missing. All in all, this replica has a cheap look noticeable from afar. A good Breitling Emergency replica should be solid and reliable looking.
My recommendation in case you want to buy an Emergency replica is to compare the images you find on the replica website with those of an original. You can go on Watchtime and read more about it and take a closer look at the pictures of a genuine Breitling. From what I found I can say that finding a good one is close to impossible. In case some of you have found some better options for a Breitling Emergency replica, feel free to comment.
