FS: Watch as seen in Top Gun 1980s stealth black with PD band

These all-black stealth 1980s vintage chronograph watches are hot right now because of the Porsche Design one featured in Top Gun and worn by Tom Cruise in both movies. Brands such as Heuer and LeJour made effectively identical watches to the Porsche Design chronograph featured both in Top Gun in 1986 and Top Gun: Maverick in 2022. The Heuer version here has the same movement and bracelet, just a different logo on the dial.

Rare opportunity to get a recently serviced Heuer Pasadena with a Porsche Design flared-ends NSA matching black bracelet that is New Old Stock, still in its original wrapping. The bracelet will enable someone with up to a 7 1/2 to 8 inch wrist to wear this watch, which also makes it easier to sell on in the future. It will fit any smaller size wrist as well. Sizing the bracelet down to any other size is easy, and we’re including a $35 bands links remover sizing tool for free with this purchase. Nearly every other bracelet lets down the look of the Pasadena.

First version Pasadena circa 1979-82 with reference 750.501. The black coating on this watch is nearly perfect. Just a few light dings around the bezel. Pushers and winder show no wear. Has been photographed intentionally in some pictures in bright lighting to show you the marks on the original crystal. Those marks are not very noticeable when you are actually wearing the watch. Great dial with the large rectangular lume plots and matching lume in the hands. And starting with a brand new bracelet means it has no scratches or wear like every other example out there.

The Pasadena’s automatic winding Valjoux 7750 is a very reliable movement and easy one to get repaired or serviced in the future. Features the day and date displays. This is the early version of the watch with Pasadena on the dial. If the Top Gun watch caught your eye, and you’ve been waiting for just the right one to come along from a trusted vintage watch dealer, here it is. Pass up all the other scruffy ones or the false economy of buying a cheaper one without an original bracelet.
