German watch brand Hanhart presents PIONEER Mk II 80 Jahre Jubilaeum, a limited edition collection created to celebrate the 80th anniversary of PIONEER Mk II, which was one of the first pilot’s chronographs. Limited to 200 pieces, the new timepiece interconnects the brand’s history as pioneer of aviator watches with the green colours of the Black Forest.
The Hanhart PIONEER Mk II 80 Jahre Jubilaeum – made with attention to detail as a tribute to the historic Mk II with the famous “Calibre 41” movement from 1940.
In 1940, the production of the two-pusher model “Calibre 41” started. The large crown and the asymmetrical pusher distance were already then typical Hanhart characteristics and still are today. Other features were: black dial with luminous numbers, recessed seconds, and 30 minutes counter, luminous hands, nickel nickel-plated movement with screw balance and Incabloc shock protection.
All Hanhart chronographs from the PIONEER collection have a stainless steel case back. Here, the historical pilot’s watches from the 1940s serve as a model. On this limited special edition, the brand used a sapphire glass case back for the first time on a PIONEER chronograph to provide a view of the decorated movement with Hanhart rotor.
Behind the sapphire glass case back of the PIONEER Mk II 80 Jahre Jubilaeum, the reliable Calibre ETA 7753 works in best Swiss Made quality. In addition to the chronograph function, it offers a power reserve of up to 42 hours. The decorated movement has a pearl cut (special circular pattern) and blue colored screws.
The red pusher is made of robust HyCeram® and the pusher distance is asymmetrically arranged, like 80 years ago. To give the anniversary chronograph an unmistakable design, inspired by the Black Forest, green was chosen as the color of the dial and the case has a matt sandblasted finish. The hands and numerals of the watch are coated with Super -LumiNova® C1.
The watch is fitted with a green canvas strap with Alcantara inside for ensuring wrist comfort. The strap is equipped with a sand-blasted pin buckle that ensures a good grip.
The new, limited PIONEER Mk II 80 Jahre Jubulaeum is now available for 2,037. 31 Euros including 16% German VAT.
