About MGM National Harbor
A longstanding partner of aviation, a field where reliability and precision play a vital role, Breitling has always devoted premier importance to the quality of its products, designed to withstand intensive use in the most trying conditions. Breitling equips all its models (both mechanical and quartz) with chronometer-certified movements by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) – the highest benchmark of precision and reliability and the only one based on an international norm. Whether it comes to enhancing the precision of its movements, reinforcing the sturdiness of the cases, improving the readability of the dials or developing new functions, the firm constantly optimizes the performances of its 100% Swiss-made “instruments for professionals.”
“The addition of Breitling reflects our goal of bringing a carefully curated collection of luxury retailers to MGM National Harbor,” said Bill Boasberg, general manager of MGM National Harbor. “The District’s wide range of offerings has made it a must-see part of our resort experience.”
Breitling will join the recently unveiled STITCHED and Ella-Rue boutiques in The District, a collection of shops that celebrates the region’s urban-chic lifestyle. It will be located directly across from SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker and Specs New York.
The newest addition to the MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM) portfolio, MGM National Harbor's unrivaled setting offers stunning panoramic views of the eastern shore of the Potomac River in Maryland. The $1.4 billion resort sits a short distance from Washington, D.C. to the north and historic sites, including George Washington's Mount Vernon estate across the river in Virginia. The 24-story, 308-room resort will feature premier amenities and experiences for locals as well as visitors from around the world including a dynamic casino with over 125,000 square feet of space that includes slots, table games and poker; a world-class spa and salon; an entertainment theater with flexible seating for up to 3,000; high-end branded retail; 50,000 square feet of meeting space; and restaurants from renowned local, national and international chefs. MGM National Harbor is scheduled to open December 8, 2016.
A specialist of technical watches, Breitling has played a crucial role in the development of the wrist chronograph and is a leader in this complication. The firm has shared all the finest moments in the conquest of the skies thanks to its sturdy, reliable and high-performance instruments. One of the world’s only major watch brands to equip all its models with chronometer-certified movements, the ultimate token of precision, Breitling is also one of the rare companies to produce its own mechanical chronograph movements, entirely developed and manufactured in its own workshops. This family business is also one of the last remaining independent Swiss watch brands.
