"Breitling, the Swiss watchmaker known for aviation-themed timepieces worn by actor John Travolta".

I mean, that's their identity? What about Jerry Seinfeld? He wore a Breitling on most his slightly popular sitcom?!?!

I also seem to recall that Bruce Willis wore them a lot in his films......could be mistaken though

Interesting news. I'd guess that the best part of it is that it's unlikely to change much about the brand.

Also found the line about Swiss exports being up in March quite interesting. First I'd read that anywhere.

One indeed learns something new every day here at Watchlords-

Until today, I thought Travolta was the official celeb ambassador for masseur molestation.

Not sure but,those who like the brand like it just the way they are ..... I personally like shiny (and big) objects from time to time, is not every day I'm in the mood for a "proper" 37mm subdued case design, with a Bauhaus dial watch....variety, is the name of the game for me

Ha- you two with the WIS humor. You like watches, your wife likes watches; it would be fun to head there just to shop with you two and watch yous buy watches and watch accessories, and so forth around the 'ol burrow. Do you like Peter Lugers-? I don't know if I like the meats or the secret sauce better- that sauce sure aint no 1000, amIright?

I appreciate the menchnitude of your hospitality, however, I insist on paying my share of the grocery bill, I need certain kinda easily digested stuff, it'll be easy to whip up at the same time y'all cook yours, and I will also pay for my own soap, too, Rx anti-fungal, you wouldn't believe what it costs.

I can only stay 10 days.

2016! HA! You guys kill me. You're like Stiller and Meara over there. Yous don't know them do you? I'd sure like to meet them. I have a cousin who's a big shot at White and Case and he knows them but the schtick-drek won't introduce us because he's ashamed of me because of my language and my lack of the financials. Like Jer and Anne never heard the grob eydish from a nebbish with bissela gelt before, amIright?. Hey the world needs social workers and therapists and artists and mechanics and poets and whonot same as billionaires, amIright? AMIRIGHT?
