The Hour Glass, one of Singapore’s foremost luxury retailers, partnered with Breitling to launch the Avenger Hurricane. On June 9, more than 150 guests attended an exclusive party, coupled with a 10-day aviation themed exhibition at Paragon, the high-end luxury mall on Orchard Road.
The Paragon Atrium was transformed for the military-themed party. An immersive aviation experience awaited the guests, as they entered the Breitling hangar. The event even featured an airfield-inspired runway for takeoff and landing, together with a 3D display of the Breitling Jet Team L-39 Albatros.
It was exciting to be able to take flight, just as pilots do and get a taste of an aeronautical adventure in the full-motion jet simulator, specially brought in by Breitling for the event.
Singapore-born TV personality Randall Tan hosted the opening evening, which was abuzz as models clad in aviation suits drew a lot of attention when they strutted down the runway, partnered together with a group of debonair gentlemen, friends of Breitling.
As if this was not already enough excitement for one night, the top pilot of the flight simulator challenge that evening was presented with a special Breitling Jet Team scale plane, highlighting the brand’s expertise as a leading specialist in the field of high-performance instruments.
Besides debuting the latest Avenger collection, guests were treated to a firsthand look at other 2016 novelties and 2 special Asia edition models – the Superocean Chronograph 42mm and Colt Automatic 41mm – redesigned to suit Asian clientele.
The new 50 mm Avenger Hurricane is made of an all-new ultra-sturdy and ultralight Breitlight case, a world-first in the watch industry. It is 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, besides being significantly harder. The watch is powered by the new in-house Caliber B12 with 24-hour military style display.
