Very cool limited edition(1999) Emergency Orbiter 3. Watch only, watch in great condition.

Breitling Orbiter was the name of three different Rozière balloons made by the Bristol based balloon manufacturer Cameron Balloons to circumnavigate the globe, named after the Swiss watchmakers Breitling. The third was successful in March 1999 of making the first nonstop flight around the world by balloon. It was piloted by Bertrand Piccard and Brian Jones

The Emergency took many years to develop and the price tag for development topped seven million dollars. The watch was one of the most useful and highly functional timepieces of its day. This is one of the attributes that serves as a powerful attractant to this particular watch. It has its place in history and has significant importance.

The watch is still outfitted with the emergency transmitter but the satellites no longer monitor the 121.5 frequency. It may, however be used if you’re even in a dire situation because SAR and commercial aircraft professionals do monitor the 121.5 frequency on all radios. It could be used to save a life under certain conditions.
