Hanhart is a German company that produces sports watches, particularly chronographs, equipped with a red reset button to prevent inadvertent resetting of the chronograph.
The Primus Carrier Pilot is designed with pilots in mind and features a large 44 mm x 15 mm case that comes in stainless steel that has a sandblasted matte gray finish, preventing reflections while flying, or whatever activity you’re doing. Flexible lugs increase comfort by adjusting to wrist movements and offer comfort for a wide variety of wrist sizes.
Huge skeletonized sword-shaped hour and minute hands, which you can see through effectively, and large indices on the main and subdials, with generous amounts of lume all around, result in a highly legible dial.
Driving the hours, minutes, small seconds, 30-minute chronograph, and date is an outsourced automatic Swiss movement running at 4Hz, with 28 jewels, and a 42-hour power reserve.
The signature red anodized aluminum pusher at 4 o’clock helps prevent wearers from accidentally resetting the chronograph. And prominent buttons, crown, and a fluted bezel with red marker at 12 o’clock allow the watch to be operated, even with gloves on. There’s no tachymeter or other navigational scales, instead just a standard 0-60 bezel, which again keeps the focus on legibility.
The Primus Carrier Pilot has a screwed down crown, screwed sapphire caseback, 100 meters water resistance, and a comes on a textile blue strap with a leather backing and folding clasp made in matte sandblasted steel.
Retail is approximately $3,000. Learn more at Hanhart.
