Breitling can look back at a long partnership with Topgun and its instructors. So let me show you a very special and rare Aerospace.
During the last days here in Reno at the Air Races I had the chance to meet several Topgun instructors. The United States Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program, more popularly known as Topgun, teaches fighter and strike tactics and techniques to selected Naval Aviators and Naval Flight Officers, who return to their operating units as surrogate instructors.
These extraordinary and charismatic pilots are based at the United States Navy Fighter Weapons School in Fallon / Nevada. Breitling has been their partner for many years now and is selling them special editions that are branded with the official United States Navy Fighter Weapons School logo and with the word Topgun on the dial.
So many of the Topgung instructors proudly sported a Breitling Aerospace and some sported an Emergency.
I also attended a dinner with Topgun instructors last Saturday; during that dinner one of their Commanders officially honoured a selected group of new instructors with a Topgun Aerospace. Guys let me tell you that this was really a memorable evening! Besides meeting extraordinary personalities from the United States Navy I also saw how thrilled these pilots were to finally get their Topgun Breitling.
These very, very special Aerospace watches are not for sale to the general public. These Aerospace are very rare! So if you once see one on a wrist it likely will be on the wrist of a Topgun instructor 🙂
Guys forget everything you have heard about Topgun watches, this is the watch Topgun instructors have on their wrists…

I was hoping to replace my misplaced emergency TOPGUN watch, but I was mistaken. I guess I’ll just keep looking.
You should have gotten an email from Breitling meanwhile…
I’ll read your email this morning, my Japanese morning (0756 on Thirsday). Thank you again
I had an emergency top gun watch, but lost it when I PCSed to Japan in 2008. Since then I’ve been looking for one like crazy. Please let me know how I can purchase another one.
