The world-famous “Calibre 40” aviator chronograph from Hanhart was originally introduced in 1938 and has been a highly appreciated object for collectors ever since.
Now, the brand is pleased to unveil a worthy replica of the legendary model, named the Primus Pilot. An elegant and up-to-date version of the company’s iconic watch, the Primus Pilot watch eloquently demonstrates its character, cast in a sporty style.
The new Hanhart watch provides the functions of hours, minutes, seconds, along with those of date and chronograph. Animating these functions is a self-winding movement - HAN38 chronograph calibre. It features a balance wheel, moving back and forth at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The movement boasts a 42-hour power reserve.
The Primus Pilot watch employs a 44 mm case, sculptured in black PVD-treated steel. It is equipped with the brand’s signature red push-piece, located at 2 o’clock. The timepiece case features a fluted bezel and flexible horns. The dial and case-back are both protected by sapphire crystals.
The black dial of the watch is completed with Superluminova-applied hour markers and hands. It is also equipped with minute and small seconds sub-dials, positioned at 3 and 9 o’clock correspondingly. These counters are kept company by the date aperture, placed at 6 o’clock.
The novel Hanhart Primus Pilot watch is mounted on a black leather strap. The watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, boasts 100-meter water-resistance. Having launched this remarkable watch, Hanhart ushers in a new era of “German Engineering – Swiss Made” chronographs.
