Breitling has never had an American store, but that's about to change. The day after Christmas, the luxury Swiss watch brand will open its first US store on East 57th Street, not far from Tourneau. This is no tiny jewel box of a retail space: The store occupies three stories, with a conference room and a bar on top and a collection of vintage Breitling pieces on the second floor.
