Besides being absolutely mind-blowing in design, the “Emergency” also includes features that would appeal to a wider audience. With 12/24-hour analog and digital display ability, 1/100th second chronograph, second time zone, multilingual calendar, alarm/timer, and a battery with an “end-of-life” indication.
The insane features do not stop there. This watch is made possible because of the thermo-compensated SuperQuartz movement, which makes it TEN times more accurate than standard quartz and chronometer. Since it has been certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), this new creation is at the highest industry standard in regard to the dependability and precision.
