By Jake Gaines Photography by Steve Slate
Recently, on a beautiful afternoon in San Antonio, the Lewis Air Legends Hangar and its historic warbirds were the backdrops for the Breitling USA relaunch of a classic timepiece, the Navitimer. President of Breitling USA Thierry Prissert, owner of Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry, Ryan Berg, and Executive Vice President of Lewis Energy Group, Jessica Lewis Worth, addressed the crowd about the background of both Breitling and Lewis Air Legends and how both companies’ missions align to preserve and celebrate history.
The event’s guests were treated to live music. At the same time, they enjoyed fine spirits provided by Bacardi USA and creative charcuterie from Cheese & Honey. All while shopping the expansive collection of timeless watches from the Breitling USA Boutique team, owned by Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry. Twelve of the Lewis Air Legends warbirds were on display, including the P-38 Glacier Girl, the gem of the collection recovered from Greenland under 268 feet of ice. In fact, Rod Lewis, founder of the Lewis Air Legends warbirds collection, has spent the last 27 years amassing and restoring over 30 vintage aircraft in the current collection.
