The Inspiration for This Collector's Set
Hanhart Red X

In 2010 Hanhart released a limited edition called the Hanhart Red X Chronograph. 

This watch featured a standard bicompax cam actuated chronograph with no additional complications  (see picture at right) and has remained one of our favorite Hanhart designs.

Several years ago we challenged the Hanhart management team to design a new limited edition Hanhart Red X with more complications and a companion stopwatch, all at a lower price than the original model which sold for 2,890 Euros (or $3,180).

To say they succeeded is an understatement - they knocked it out of the park!

The new Hanhart Red X Collector's Set differs from the original model in the following important ways:

  • Chronograph upgraded to column wheel construction rather than cam actuated
  • Chronograph upgraded to incorporate a flyback complication
  • Chronograph incorporates Manufacture AMT Calibre 5100 M
  • Chronograph power reserve increased to 58 hours from 48 hours
  • Choice of two dial colors - royal blue or anthracite grey
  • Stopwatch made in-house with Hanhart calibre 122
  • Stopwatch features matching dial to wristwatch
  • Stopwatch includes dashboard mounting plate
  • Stopwatch includes desk display stand
  • Lower price than original model



Why is a Stopwatch Part of This Collector's Set?

Most people don't know that Hanhart is one of the last remaining (if not the last) producers of mechanical stopwatches in the world, and that they produce these stopwatches in-house with their own manufacture movements.

In fact many very well known Swiss and German brands contract with Hanhart to produce mechanical stopwatches using their logos and branding, giving the impression that those companies actually produce mechanical stopwatches.

Maintaining the equipment to produce mechanical stopwatches and stopwatch movements in-house is quite the task, as much of this equipment is quite old.

Hanhart is rightfully proud of their mechanical stopwatch heritage, and is committed to keeping this important part of horological history active.

The new Hanhart Red X Flyback Collector's Set represents the first time in the company's 142 year history that both a wristwatch and stopwatch have been released together in the same design and as a limited edition collector's set.



Limited Edition Collector's Set of 140 Pieces

In 1924, Hanhart revolutionized timekeeping by introducing the first affordable mechanical stopwatch. 

The Hanhart Red X Flyback Collector's Set includes a manually wound flyback column wheel chronograph wristwatch with either an anthracite grey or royal blue dial packaged alongside a matching flyback stopwatch and dash plate.  If the dashboard of your rally car is already complete, the table stand can serve to create an impressive conversation piece for a desk or shelf.

Only 140 twin collector's sets will be produced in each dial color. 

The limited edition number is engraved on the case back of each watch.



New Manufacture AMT® Calibre 5100 M
 
Powered by the manually wound Manufacture AMT® Calibre 5100 M, the clearly visible blue column wheel ensures a smooth operation of the chronograph functions, while the flyback complication allows a quick reset while the chronograph hand is in motion.



What is a Flyback Chronograph?

A flyback chronograph is one of the easiest chronographs to operate.

Rather than having to remember to stop the chronograph hand before resetting, the reset button at 4 may be pressed while the chronograph hand is in motion causing that hand to "fly back" to 0.

This function allows continuous operation of the chronograph when timing multiple events, as one push returns the chronograph hand to 0 but does not stop its operation - it simply starts over to time the next event.

This chronograph can also function as a traditional chronograph using the pusher at 2 to start and stop the chronograph and the pusher at 4 to reset.



Column Wheel Construction

Most chronograph watches in production today are cam actuated, using two layers of metal to receive input from the pushers and transmit that input to the clutch.

A column wheel chronograph uses a single part to perform both functions, and is often compared to a castle's turret.  The column wheel is more difficult and labor intensive to manufacture than a cam actuated design, and requires more skill and patience to complete.

Column wheel







The advantage to a column wheel design is a more precise feel to the operation of the chronograph. 



Historic Design

The bi-compax chronograph layout features a 30 minute register at 3 and a small seconds register at 9.  In keeping with their historical watch designs, Hanhart has chosen to use the vintage Hanhart logo on the dial, crown and buckle.

The case is in stainless steel and is fitted with a friction fit fluted bi-directional rotating bezel with a red indicator.

  • Convex sapphire crystal with interior AR coating
  • Transparent sapphire case back
  • Royal blue dial with sunburst pattern
