This Breitling Emergency Mission A73322 has a Breitling SuperQuartz Caliber 73 movement with a rare Certified Official Chronometer (COSC) rating for supreme accuracy. The battery life expectancy is 2 to 3 years, and it has an end-of-life indicator.
The Breitling Emergency Mission A73322 was introduced in 2003, and produced until 2008. With the antenna completely extended, it will broadcast for up to 48 hours over ocean or flatland with a ca. 100 nautical mile range, or to a search plane at 20,000 feet. It can reach up to 200 miles at optimal conditions.
The watch could be graded 9/10 due to a few of slight surface marks to the bezel and clasp.
The box is not original Breitling.
The watch is working and keeping a very precise time, but as for any other used or vintage watch, a basic revision is recommended.
Most of the watches that I am selling are liquidation or collector items, therefor I make no claims and give no warranty regarding continual accuracy of time keeping. Used, antique or vintage watches may need servicing, even if they are in good running condition. Unless otherwise stated they may need to be cleaned, oiled, adjusted and or timed. I cannot guarantee a used watch to be waterproof or water resistant.
