Breitling Emergency

Breitling Emergency

Emergency Location Transmitter (ELT) is a Radio Distress Beacon, a portable device that is designed to broadcast the location of a vessel or a person in distress. ELTs interface with a Cospas-Sarsat, an international search and rescue satellite system that was established in the early 1980's to locate vessels or persons in distress within the first 24-hours after the incident. Usually ELT devices are bulky but still portable. Generally they fit into a bag or a backpack, but in case of an emergency where you could potentially be separated from your gear or vessel by miles, provide little comfort. Breitling saw a real need for a more personalized, portable Emergency Location Transmitter (ELT) that would not be so easily separated from the individual in distress. Fast forward a few years and in 1995 Breitling releases its first Emergency.
