Swiss luxury watchmaker and aviation chronograph specialist, Breitling and its retail partner Cortina Watch Malaysia, celebrated the landing of its new Breitling Kuala Lumpur Boutique at Suria KLCC in conjunction with the 60th anniversary of its emblematic Superocean Héritage collection. In conjunction with the launch of the new store, Breitling held an exclusive event during the opening of its exhibition at Suria KLCC Centre Court on 10 October 2017.
The event was hosted by Daphne Iking, and was attended by top Malaysian celebrities including Awal Ashaari, Remy Ishak, Debbie Goh, Sazzy Falak, Hunny Madu, Juliana Evans and Jojo Goh as well as VIP guests and fans of Breitling.
The evening kicked off with a runway show featuring the Superocean Héritage II with Breitling models donning looks inspired by the 50s – commemorating 60 years of adventure and discovery of the collection. First launched in 1957, the Superocean professional diving watch – rapidly adopted by the first enthusiasts of leisure diving – has since spawned several generations of instruments with superior aquatic performance. To mark the 60th anniversary of this pioneer of wide-open spaces, Breitling has reinvigorated its iconic design while maintaining its unique character.
For the first time in South-East Asia, seven life-sized pilots representing the Breitling Jet Team, the world’s largest professional civilian flight team performing on jets was displayed at the exhibition. This unique aerobatics team illustrates the brand’s cherished values: performance, precision, aesthetic sophistication and innovation. Guests were also given a chance to try the virtual reality experience flying over the San Francisco skyline on board of an Albatros L-39C of the Breitling Jet Team.
Renowned singer Dasha Logan serenaded guests with some of the greatest hits throughout the years, beginning from the 60s and transitioning through the 70s and 80s as well as current hits.
The Breitling Suria KLCC Boutique is managed in partnership with Cortina Watch Malaysia, and is located at Lot 105A, First Floor Suria KLCC Shopping Centre, 50088 Kuala Lumpur, open from 10am to 10pm daily, including weekends and public holidays.
