Product Details

This is one of our favorite watches in the Hanhart Collection - the Primus Pilot Desert Sand.

One look at the dial, strap and sand blasted stainless steel case will tell you why.

The Hanhart Primus Pilot is a contemporary take on legendary pilot's chronographs, and is ideal for precision timekeeping in the air.

Although contemporary in design, this watch remains true to one of the brand's most distinctive features - the red pusher - introduced in 1939 to prevent pilots from unintentionally resetting the stop time.

To create this chronograph bicompax movement, Hanhart started with a Valjoux 7750 and then designed modifications to create the bicompax display.

These modifications have been carried out under the direction of Manufacture La Joux-Perret, and include adjusting the registers to correctly and proportionally fit the size of the dial (rather than the "pinched look" seen in other chronograph watches of this size).

The features of this watch include:

  • Hanhart designed bicompax chronograph modifications from Manufacture La Joux-Perret
  • Skeletonized Hanhart rotor
  • Fluted bezel with inlaid red marking
  • Convex sapphire crystal with interior AR coating
  • Sapphire crystal display back
  • Flexible lugs (a design unique to Hanhart)
  • Matte black dial with SuperLuminova on hands, numerals and indices
  • Hanhart trademark red chronograph button
  • Oversized screw down crown
  • Unique sand colored dial
  • Textile strap with steel folding clasp with red inlaid marking

Desert sand

"Desert sand"

Verified Owner Comments: Great watch, my husband being a professional race driver and pilot says it is the perfect instrument a little larger than his Rolex and easer to read and bigger buttons to use the stop watch during rallying....No just a pretty face.....

Primus Pilot Desert Sand

"Primus Pilot Desert Sand"

Verified Owner Comments: I like the watch. It is bold and attractive. My watch is different than it pictured. swiss made on a dial is gone. Dial does not glow in a dark. Fast, secured shipping.Very good communication and responds from company. Matt was very helpful.

A totally different look.

"A totally different look."

Verified Owner Comments: This is a great looking watch with a terrific strap and buckle. My ritique is as follows 1. The watch looks and wears big at 44mm. This is not for small wrists. 2. The chrono totalizer is only for 30 minutes. I would much prefer that it be 1 to 12 hours total. 3. A uni-directional bezel would make the watch much more helpful, rather than the fixed bezel with a red has mark at the 12 o'clock position.
