Hanhart PRIMUS Carrier Pilot

Hanhart , the watch manufacturer from Gütenbach in the Black Forest in Germany, adds a new watch to the PRIMUS Pilot collection: a modern aviator chronograph in rich royal blue, the PRIMUS Carrier Pilot.

Hanhart is known for the production of aviation chronographs. In the history the watchmaker from the Black Forest also built watches for the Navy. The new PRIMUS Carrier Pilot combines the elements of air and water: the blue color of the depths of the ocean was the model for the dial and canvas strap, whereas hands and indexes reflect the sleek design of a pilot’s chronograph.

An aircraft carrier is a warship that serves as a seagoing airbase. Landing on a carrier is one of the most demanding and dangerous flying operations for pilots, especially at nighttime or with bad weather. The PRIMUS Carrier Pilot is the perfect companion for these maneuvers: perfect legibility at day and night, matt case without reflection and flexible lugs for maximum wearing comfort.

The blue dial and canvas strap with leather inlay give the watch a unique look in combination with the gray matte steel case.

Despite its modern, simple design, the chronograph does not miss out the typical Hanhart features like the fluted bezel with red index inlay and the red pusher. Like in the 30s, Hanhart’s new chronograph has a bicompax dial, which means that the small subsidiary dials are located at 3 and 9 o’clock. This ensures not only a harmonious design but is as well very useful: at 9 o’clock the small second is displayed while the 30-minute stop is included at 3 o’clock.

The PRIMUS Carrier Pilot is now available for 2740 EUR.
