IMHO looking bold makes your life much safer than looking poor. In most places. For the few exceptions I put the watch in my pants. BTW Transafrica countries like Angola and Niger were NOT an exception. However, Johannesburg IS a place where I hide my watch at night.
You are right about the service intervals. This has become a real problem with the Breitling Emergency. The price has been doubled to € 300 (!!!), every two and a half years.
In addition, I have been told, the 121,5 MHz frequency emergency system will be altered and further reduce the value of that watch. I was already looking for an alternative, but haven't found one.
surely Breitling can drop in a new emitter during a servicing?
