Mission Quartz vs. X-33

Whether you’re exploring in space or lost at sea, both these digitized utility watches are up for the task.

The Breitling Emergency watches have been known since 1995 for being a backup for pilots, offshore sailors, and wilderness hikers in the event of a disaster. It features a tachometric scale rehaut that slopes down from the bezel and the Breitling calibre 73 that provides stability despite extreme temperatures. The Mission Quartz also has a personal locator beacon that can send out a distressed signal wherever you may be.

The Omega Speedmaster X-33 features the Caliber 1666 which was exclusive to this family of watches. Although it has a bit more complicated interface than your classic mechanical chronograph, it features both analogue and digital display.
