Breitling logoLuxury watch maker Breitling recently revealed its new collection directly from Switzerland at an invitation-only event for its Bahamian clientele at the Nassau boutique outlet.

“The Bahamas, though small in population relative to many of our markets, has an incredibly sophisticated and discerning population that appreciates fine workmanship and true quality,” said Mauricio Diaz, vice president, Breitling Caribbean.

“Being one of 44 Breitling boutiques worldwide, and the first in the Caribbean [region], the Nassau boutique has always been central in all new product launches coming from the annual Basel show in March in Switzerland. We are so excited to share the new Runway 2015 collection with The Bahamas and the world.”

The event was held at the Breitling Boutique on Bay Street.

Guests included Khaalis Rolle, Minister of Investments; Dr Hubert Minnis, Leader of the Loyal Opposition and senator Carl Bethel, QC.

Other local business, civic and community leaders and friends also attended the launch event.

“Breitling’s reputation for Swiss perfection in technical watches and its link to other symbols of precision performance have managed to capture and hold the public’s imagination, making invitations to unveilings like this one in Nassau one of the events of the year,” said Diaz.

“I believe the fact that it is one of the last remaining family-owned independent Swiss watch brands adds to the appeal and mystique.”
