This watch has one of the most unique dial colors we've seen, and the picture does not do it justice.
When we visited the Hanhart manufacturing facilities in Gutenbach, Germany a number of Hanhart team members commented that this was their favorite dial color.
The Hanhart Primus Collection is a contemporary take on earlier Hanhart chronograph designs.
This collection cleverly combines traditional elements with state-of-the-art technology and progressive design.
The Primus Pilot, Racer and Diver models represent Hanhart’s core areas of expertise: the manufacture of precision timepieces for use in the air, on the land and on the sea.
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)
- Mocha dial with SuperLuminova on hands, numerals and indices
- Hanhart trademark red chronograph button
- Oversized screw down crown
This watch is water resistant to 100 meters and features a brown calfskin strap with folding clasp with inlaid red marking (anodized aluminum) made from stainless steel.
