You would have to go through Breitling, but it should have been handled during the service (assuming that you had Breitling do it) so you can get it done under the service warranty. Additionally, the first service on an Emergency is free anyway.

That plastic part is a seal to the antenna if it's off then Breitling would insist on a full service. However, it is always a full service with the emergency.

It is made of hard plastic and not really there to seal the antenna cap; it covers the orange color that when visible is an indication that either the antenna cap is loose or that the antenna might have been deployed. They do get brittle with age, catch on things and break off. the problem is that you can't even get to that little ring without removing the entenna from the case...if it really bugs you, find a suitable o-ring and slide it over the cap. At least you won't see the orange where the grey ring is supposed to go...

I just purchased the Breitling emergency and the Oring is missing. The watch is in perfect new shape and looks completely unworn. You can see the orange color between the beacon and cap. Any idea how much to fix and also if water can get in without it? It appears to be a hard plastic spacer cap that would provide no moisture barrier but figured I’d check here for recommendations? Thanks.

You cannot insert an oring unless you open (screw) the cap as it is partially sealed.
