Independent Swiss watch manufacturer Breitling celebrated the official grand opening of the newly-relocated Breitling Boutique New York on Madison Avenue and 57th Street on Thursday, May 19.

The party featured a star-studded list of VIPs, including award-winning actor and aviation aficionado, John Travolta; former astronauts Mark Kelly and Scott Kelly; four-time Stanley Cup champion Wayne Gretzky; four-time NFL Pro Bowl quarterback, Boomer Esiason; professional golfer Morgan Hoffman; and the pilots of the Breitling Jet Team.

The new two-story store includes 90 feet of wraparound sidewalk frontage and 4,300 square feet of interior space to showcase the latest Breitling watches, including the Breitling Avenger Hurricane, the Breitling Exospace B55 and the Breitling for Bentley GMT B04 S Carbo

“Tonight’s event was an incredibly successful celebration with a tremendous showing from Breitling Ambassadors, VIPs and honored guests,” said Breitling USA president Thierry Prissert. “Our special guests are all distinguished professionals in their respective fields who embody high performance, surpass personal limits and achieve superb feats — which is very much what Breitling celebrates.”

“It’s been a pleasure to partner with Breitling for more than a decade, and tonight was a world-class celebration with individuals to match,” said Travolta, the evening’s guest of honor. “Ever since I was a child, my dream was to fly. The thrill of taking off and soaring through the sky is a passion that burns bright inside me – and is shared by Breitling.”
