Nice pieces guys. I like the rolex, when I bought my breitling It was a toss up between the rolex sub, the breitling, or the omega (james bond one) lol. I ended up getting the breitling cuz Im a pilot so the emergency beacon may come in handy one day.

I currently am 'rocking' a Panerai Luminor 312. I have fallen in love with this brand, so much so that I have ordered a Panerai Radomir 425!

If you look at the bottom of the watch there is a cap that you can twist out and it exposes a wire. The wire is a few feet long and transmits the emergency signal on 121.5 (international emergency radio frequency) with a emergency siren sound. The beacon has a range of 120nautical miles and will last for up to 48 hours. Its basically the same as a black box in a airplane...but i figure i fly over the ocean all the time...the plane would be at the bottom and i would be floating at the top lol. If its a genuine rescue, breitling will replace your watch for free...if its pulled out by a drunk friend at a party, its like a $10-30k fine or something...i dont recall the exact amount but its a big federal offense if you falsify a distress call. My model is a few years old, the newer ones have a secondary beacon at the top as well as a digital timer.

Isnt this watch discontinued due to a change in the frequency used for emergency transmissions? This is what I was told....
