The Hanhart Pioneer MK II is based upon the design of Hanhart's first pilot's chronograph watch, first introduced in 1939.
What is interesting about this watch is the placement of the chronograph pushers - they are asymmetrical rather than evenly spaced as on other chronograph watches.
Hanhart has modified the movement to relocate the top pusher further from the crown, providing for ease of use.
The red reset pusher is a Hanhart design and was developed as a warning mechanism to pilots using this chronograph in flight.
This bi-compax chronograph features a 30 minute register at 3 and small seconds at 9. The case is in stainless steel and is fitted with a fluted bi-directional rotating bezel with red indicator.
Other features include:
- Convex sapphire crystal with interior AR coating
- Screw down case back
- Large crown with deep beveled edge
- Off-white dial with SuperLuminova on numerals and hands
- Power reserve of 42 hours
This watch is water resistant to 100 meters and is fitted with a vintage black riveted calf skin strap with tang buckle.
This watch is classic Hanhart at its best.
