ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY: After a few weeks of construction setbacks, Breitling launched its first flagship with the help of brand ambassador John Travolta on Thursday. Travolta has been linked with the company since 2005, and braved a red-eye flight to be at the event. He said of president Marie Bodman, “Marie, she’s family, she runs this company like family. She’s real and smart and no bull, she’s everything you want business to be, and should be, and rarely is. So I’m very contented here, and comfortable and confident to be with them.”

Travolta has three as-yet-unnamed film projects in the works, as well as a pending representation deal with aircraft manufacturer Bombardier, and a new son, Benjamin. Travolta said, “As soon as this is over I go to the airport and go home to Benjamin,” and added, “Oh my God, he’s so beautiful and he’s so happy.”

The actor toasted a bustling three-floors of onlookers with the help of a couple of welcome (though slightly out of place) retired sports greats: Wayne Gretzky and Boomer Esiason. Gretzky has been given the full Breitling treatment, and recounted a weeklong trip to the company’s factory in Switzerland last year. He is the newest Breitling spokesman and said, “It’s exciting for me. The watches are beautiful, the people are so nice. We had a ball when we went to Switzerland.…I’m just enjoying myself.”
