Exclusive offer from Breitling for Air Commandos
|Breitling watches are well known in the aviation community for their precision and high quality. And over the course of time, the company has naturally earned the title of "the official supplier to world aviation". |
Breitling is steeped in aviation history. In World War II, aircraft were equipped with onboard chronographs because Breitling was known for its precision and sturdiness; in 1962, a Navitimer accompanied Scott Carpenter on his orbital flight aboard the Aurora 7 capsule, thus becoming the first space-going wrist chronograph. Today, professional aviators still rely on Breitling for cutting edge technology.
Much like Breitling, the Air Commandos have a unique history. Beginning with the Chindits in Burma, executing missions deep into enemy territory to resupply British ground forces; in Vietnam, risking their lives and having the guts to try during the Son Tay raid; infilling troops and circling overhead as Manuel Noriega was taken prisoner in Panama; and continuing today with the fight against global terrorism. Air Commandos have taken part in many of our Country's missions, but have always remained the "quiet professionals".
For many years, Breitling has been offering its watches at discounted prices to military aviators. So I approached Breitling about creating a watch specifically for the Air Commandos of Air Force Special Command. Today, I am proud to offer the Chronospace for purchase.
|The Chronospace is normally priced between $4,500 and $5,700 with tax. But our prices are between $2,930 and $3,340 with tax depending on the band ordered. Because we live in Florida, our order will be taxed by Breitling. I am currently deployed, but will inquire about a P.O. Box in AL to exclude our order from tax. For us to place an order, we must have a minimum of 25 orders. If I do not receive 25 orders, all money will be returned to owners. |
The actual watch dial is the Chronospace Professional (image shown to the right). Alterations to the dial cannot be made! The other images shown on this page are the different bands that are offered. The case back can be engraved with your squadron, wings, name, or whatever you would like. Examples of case backs are shown below.
|I will take orders from 1 August until 15 September. A $300 deposit is required to secure your watch. Because the watch is expensive, I will allow members to make payments until 15 November when the remaining balance is due. All payments must be deposited at Eglin Federal Credit Union (I will provide the account number when you email me). Breitling will not accept credit cards, so I must submit the final order by check. If you do not have an EFCU near your location, we can discuss other methods of payment.|
Breitling is very specific about the terms for purchase. You must be an aviator! And in addition, you must be a past or present Air Commando! To ensure the integrity of the program, you might be required to show proof that you are/were an Air Commando.
Once the orders have been submitted, Breitling estimates 10-12 months for completion. All watches will be shipped to my address. If you order a watch and are not located in the Hurlburt area, I can make arrangements to ship the watch to you. You will have to pay all applicable shipping costs.
If you have any questions or to place your order please email me at: email@example.com
Cheers, Deon McGowan
Any squadron logo or design can be placed on the back, as long as it is vector based artwork. Most downloaded web based logos are .jpeg, .gif, or .tif quality which is insufficient for such detailed engraving. Try going through the Air Force history office or AFSOC for the appropriate logo. If you have problems tracking down a logo or design, let me know and I might be able to help.
