That was the reason NASA chose Omega Speedmaster as "the watch of choice" for space voyages. Omega vs BulovaBulova insisted on using its watches in NASA programs. It complained on the fact that NASA used Swiss timepieces in the American space program. NASA had nothing against the use of the Bulova watch but it had to be tested to deserve the right to become the "watch of choice" and namely to meet all requirements for a space watch. As a result, Bulova timepiece failed the tests while Omega Speedmaster Professional passed them all. Some time later Bulova tried again to become NASA's "watch of choice" but unfortunately failed again.Gorsky quarreled and Mrs. Gorsky cried out: "You'll get oral *** when the kid next door walks on the moon."Of course it is up to you to believe it or not but it looks rather as a funny but false rumor.

Both American and Soviet cosmonauts wore great chronographs produced by Omega. Why Omega Speedmaster?

An interesting technique might be to outfit an entire crew with these watches, then in the event of an emergency, spread out to create a combined coverage area of several hundred miles.Be careful when showing the Breitling Emergency to your friends, however. Apparently, the FAA will slap you with a $15,000 fine if you broadcast a false distress call which will probably result in you having to sell your expensive watch.For more information, check the Emergency out on Breitling's site.The Breitling Emergency has got to be one of the most unique watches I've ever seen. Breitling primarily makes watches for aviation professionals, and therefore outfits them with appropriate functionality like chronographs, circular slide rules, multiple time zones, etc. But these are all features designed to keep you in the air, on course, and on time. What about a feature designed to offer pilots and crew members assistance when they encounter the unexpected? That's where the Breitling Emergency comes in.The most salient feature of the Breitling Emergency is its ability to broadcast an emergency distress signal. Unscrew the protective cap on the right side of the case, fully extend the antenna, and the Breitling Emergency will broadcast on the 121.5 MHz aircraft emergency frequency for a full 48 hours. The range of the transmission is about 100 miles, which seems reasonably impressive for a watch.
