But hey with that watch you could probably pick up some chicks at the bar, tell a story how your boat sunk while your were single handing and struck a container...........
Let me correct above, the new Emergency II by Brietling has both the 121.5 and 406 Mghz e-pirb, so if you have the cash to spare, it would be cool to have while you are sailing you 65 foot swan.

"Alive I am worth about $8,500."
Yes and no. If you have a US passport, that can be sold for at least $25,000. Your identity can be sold for at least $10,000 if your credit history is fairly clean. Then there's your heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, a batch of other stuff...a fast hundred grand for the major parts, unless you've got major problems.
You may not be alive once you've been parted out, but folks prefer to buy living donors, so the goods are fresh.

See? You're worth more than you think.

Correction:
Alive $135 K
Dead $250 K
I'll keep a close eye on the wife...and I won't be expecting the watch for Christmas.

re: "All is Lost" Movie Sequel

Guys,

You're just not understanding the value proposition: the watch has a chronometer which means you can junk the chart plotters and gps and return to position finding using a sextant. It's the ultimate neo-retro watch -- the state-of-the-art technology facilitating a return to navigation as it was meant to be practiced. The "Emergency II" also has a 406 MHz transmitter, so it's a replacement for the EPIRB as well.

Value proposition: eliminate the GPS $350; eliminate the chart plotter $3000; eliminate the EPIRB $700 (note we're getting close to the price of one of these beauties used on eBay); stylish watch to show off in the beach bar in Guadeloupe where monokini clad French girls abound -- Priceless!

Get with it, dudes!
