Product Details
A Secret That's Been Hard to Keep

When Hanhart discussed their ideas for creating a non-chronograph version of their most collected watch (the Hanhart 417 ES), we were excited.

When they told us they planned a limited edition of just 150 pieces in a bronze case true to the original case design for the German Armed Forces, we were all in. 

All we had to do was keep our mouths shut until now.

Brand New Release With A Vintage Feel

The new Pioneer One Bronze Limited Edition offers a truly vintage look reminiscent of some of the most famous watches in the company's history.

The overall style of this watch was inspired by the Hanhart 417 ES Chronograph, a pilot's watch that was produced with a bronze case in the 1950s for the German Armed Forces.  The historic Hanhart logo, the bronze case, and the olive green dial make the Hanhart Pioneer One Bronze Limited Edition unique, and it occupies a very special place within Hanhart's modern collection.
This watch is a limited edition of 150 pieces. The case back is engraved with the limited edition number (XXX/150) and Hanhart's historic "h" logo.

What's So Special About Bronze?

Designing a watch with a bronze case is not as simple as it may seem. As the bronze ages and patinas, the overall look of the watch changes with it.  The Hanhart Pioneer One Bronze Limited Edition was designed with that in mind.

The watch case is crafted from CuSn8 bronze, with the exception of the case back which is sandblasted stainless steel.  Each watch case will develop its own natural patina over time due to the gradual oxidation of the bronze, adding to the truly special nature of each piece.  

The choice of olive green for the dial is an homage to the company's roots in the Black Forest of Germany, but it is also an attractive pairing with the natural patina of bronze.  

The DNA of the Hanhart Pioneer One

The Hanhart Pioneer One Series watches offer a healthy dose of Hanhart history with a contemporary case size and other important design elements.

The hands are a direct homage to Hanhart's 417 Chronograph series from the 1950s.

The large crown was also important in early Hanhart designs, allowing the pilot to use the crown while wearing gloves, and that crown is fitted on these watches.

This watch also takes design elements from the very famous Hanhart Calibres 40, 41 and 42 which were originally produced for the Air Force division of the German Armed Forces.

Although these earlier watches all featured chronograph functions, their designs became instantly recognizable as a Hanhart watch, and the new Hanhart Pioneer One Series carries forward this tradition in a three handed watch.

Hanhart has chosen a perfect case size of 42 mm, and the fluted bi-directional rotating bezel with red marking is associated as one of Hanhart's most recognizable design elements.

Other features of this watch include:

  • Olive green dial with C3 SuperLuminova
  • Fluted friction bezel with red ceramic inlay
  • Sapphire crystal
  • Solid steel case back with engraved serial number
  • Brown vintage calf skin strap with bronze PVD tang buckle
  • Water resistant to 100 meters
  • Limited edition of 150 pieces

Excellent quality and unique piece

"Excellent quality and unique piece"

Verified Owner Comments: Everything about this purchase was stelar. The professionalism of the watchbuys staff was fantastic. The item shipped quickly and came exactly as expected, with the watch being packaged very nicely and secure.

The watch itself is very unique. I am a fan of bronze watches, the warm and vintage vibe that the bronze case with the olive green dial give is a great combination and wonderfully executed. Also, the use of the old Hanhart logo really wraps everything together to make this watch look like something from the past.

Perhaps my favorite detail is the vinyl record texture that runs around with the arabic numerals very cool and thumbs up to Hanhart for that detail. Also the leather strap that comes with is has a nice vintage look too, with the stitching by the lugs, and the inconsistent grain of the saddle leather. Very comfortable strap as well.

I would definitely buy another watch from Hanhart, and as well as from Watchbuys. Great job to both businesses.

Lovely watch!

"Lovely watch!"

Verified Owner Comments: This is a wonderful watch! Runs about +1/spd. Patina develops quickly on the wrist. Color fades from the shiny bronze taking on a muted gray tint, as expected.

Highly legible. Don't clean the tarnishing. I would prefer a softer strap but it forms well to the wrist and can be changed, but it is a good match for the watch, and long enough for my 7.5 wrist. I really enjoy this limited edition at such a reasonable price.

Great watch

"Great watch"

Verified Owner Comments: This watch has a great color dial that contrast with the bronze case. Th crown is large and smooth.The date is ghosted so there are two distinct clicks on the crown settings of this Salita SW 200.

The bezel has a bi-directional rotation which is very smooth but not ratcheted.

I was very happy with my WatchBuys experience. I made the order on a weekend and Monday morning I had a call from a store representative. The gentleman I spoke with verified my order and made sure all my questions were answered. I received the watch that Wednesday.

Bronze Limited

"Bronze Limited"

Verified Owner Comments: Simplicity at best and craftsmanship. 42mm sits very well and comfortable on your wrist. The green dial really pops out and complements the bronze case. Leather strap needs to be broken in but of high quality. Case back is solid and brushed with details.

Excellent customer service from WatchBuys and will help you out if you have any question regarding the watch etc.
