The store’s daring décor echoes Breitling’s aeronautical ties and boasts exceptional levels of innovation, quality and function with high-spec design features including a supersized multimedia screen. The store is to be managed by Aurum Holdings the UK’s largest luxury retailer of brands including Watches of Switzerland, Goldsmiths and Mappin & Webb.

Breitling has a long and rich aviation heritage and an enduring association with the Royal Air Force since the 1930’s when Breitling on-board flight Chronographs were installed in RAF World War II aircraft. For over 20 years the Red Arrows have worn Breitling wristwatches as instruments for precision and timing, for their world renowned aerobatic displays.

From 5th until 8th November visitors to Bluewater will also have the opportunity to take flight as pilots in the Breitling Jet Simulator which will be located in Bluewater’s Moon Court.
