Breitling celebrated the relocation of its New York boutique by inviting not only its movie star ambassador John Travolta, but astronaut twins Mark and Scott Kelly and ice hockey legend Wayne Gretzky.
“Tonight’s event was an incredibly successful celebration with a tremendous showing from Breitling Ambassadors, VIPs and honoured guests, said Breitling USA president Thierry Prissert. “Having John Travolta, Mark and Scott Kelly, Wayne Gretzky, Boomer Esiason, Morgan Hoffman and the Breitling Jet Team in attendance was spectacular. They are all distinguished professionals in their respective fields that embody high performance, surpass personal limits and achieve superb feats, which is very much what Breitling celebrates.”
