Breitling Boutique Premiers 2013 Timepiece Collection

 Little Switzerland hosted a gala event at their Breitling Boutique on Main Street, Charlotte Amalie, on Friday, July 19, to showcase the arrival of the 2013 Breitling timepiece collection. Originally debuted at the World Watch and Jewelry Show in Basel, Switzerland, to more than 100,000 visitors from all over the world, the 2013 Breitling timepiece collection has officially arrived in St. Thomas.
Guests, many of whom sported their Breitling timepieces, were treated to the first look at the 2013 collection presented by Pablo De Cardenas and Laura Silva from Breitling Caribbean as well as Breitling Store Manager Glenn Prince and Vice President of Marketing for Little Switzerland Adam Levitt.
Among the timepieces showcased were the Breitling Avenger models with slimmer cases for a more ergonomic profile, now with an engraved and satin-brushed bezel; the Superocean 42 diver’s watch water-resistant to 5,000 feet is clad in blue rubber with a Breitling embossed signature; the Transocean Chronograph GMT, a new travel watch in red gold or steel with an elegant guilloche dial; the Transocean Unitime Pilot aviator’s chronograph with a worldtime system and steel mesh bracelet; and the Breitling for Bentley collection appealing to world travelers thanks to dual timezone and world time mechanisms.
Glenn Prince welcomed Breitling owners and aspiring owners to celebrate the new collection. “Breitling combines luxury and accomplishment with performance and prestige. We are happy to have our friends with us as we introduce the new line for 2013. We invite everyone to stop by the Little Switzerland’s Breitling Boutique to view these high performance timepieces,” he said.
Little Switzerland has defined luxury in the Caribbean for more than 50 years as a leading retailer specializing in fine jewelry and timepieces. With over 30 stores located across the Caribbean, Little Switzerland offers the most desired collection of designer jewelry and timepieces. It is the largest authorized retailer of Breitling watches throughout the Caribbean.

The world’s only major watch brand to equip all its models with chronometer-certified movements, the ultimate token of precision, Breitling is also one of the rare companies to produce its own mechanical chronograph movement, entirely developed and manufactured in its own workshops.
