HanHart: Pioneer Red Chronograph- Love on The Red Button

by Timepiece Atelier on September 04

What defines a “Pilot watch?” If you look for the most verbatim interpretation, you’re likely to find Hanhart timepieces. This independent German brand symbolizes precision timekeeping and is a pioneer in the manufacturing of stopwatches and wrist chronographs for air, land and sea for military personnel. Even today, Hanhart has displayed incredible engineering craft and produces first-class functionality in its products. Hanhart continues to preserve its status as a pioneer in timekeeping instruments in the world of horology.

Hanhart has dedicated much of its time to refine its chronograph watches as it follows their signature trend of linearity and legibility of bicompax on timepieces. It released the HanHart Pioneer Chronograph, aimed to fit the military aesthetic as well as operational effectiveness.

The modern watch begins with an edel steel case that measures 40mm x 15mm with stainless steel caseback to give a robust, matt-metal finish. It has a sunburst dark grey dial fluted with a “fliegler” style rotating bezel marked in red. The bezel is also kept thin to provide an optimal view for the wearers. Around the dial are noticeable white Arabic numerals with a clear focus on clarity and the time is perfectly readable even in the lowest light conditions thanks to the luminous hands. The watch is accented with Hanhart’s signature red chronograph button that acts as a totem for the love between a young pilot and his wife, where his wife painted red nail polish on one of the buttons to remind him about her and return home safe and sound.

It has a sapphire crystal front and back which makes the watch finish fantastic. The display caseback also allows wearers to glimpse into the intricate movement of the watch. Moreover, it features a screw down caseback and crown to guarantee safe and secure handling of the watch. Additionally, it has a decent water resistance of 100 meters. Lastly, this robust timepiece is powered by an automatic Swiss Chronograph movement 7760 modified and decorated with a 40 hour power reserve.

In conclusion, it looks like this Hanhart Pioneer Red timepiece cuts above the aesthetic and primary criteria of a chronograph watch. The watch comes with a classic stainless-steel bracelet thus you can wear this watch on any occasion, it could be your dress watch or your daily leisure watch. You can get this handsome watch at a discounted price of S$3,972.00 from Timepiece Atelier. (S$6,620.00 Regular Price)
