Hanhart has launched a limited edition 417 Bronze timepiece in collaboration with the Revolution magazine and The Rake. This new model features a bronze case with a diameter of 39 mm. A copper-colored dial with sunray finish, hands matching the color of the case, a brown leather strap and an embossed stainless steel case back underscore the one-of-a-kind character.
Launched in 2020, Hanhart 417 ES takes inspiration from the first pilot’s chronograph created by the brand for the German armed forces.
Hanhart built the first pilot’s chronograph for the German armed forces based on these three criteria from the mid-1950s. Hanhart supplied the German armed forces with the chronograph for almost ten years, until the brand concentrated on building hand stopwatches in 1963.
The few remaining pieces of the original 417 have become some of the most sought-after vintage chronographs from Germany. The Hanhart 417 ES celebrates the return of this legendary chronograph. The HANHART 417 BRONZE COPPERHEAD is a timepiece born from the partnership with the Revolution magazine and The Rake.
Limited to 200 pieces, the chronograph shines with a copper-colored sunray dial, which shows different facets depending on light and brightness. Bronze-colored hands round out the watch’s appearance, which is responsible for the timepiece’s nickname: Copperhead. The nickname comes from a species of viper native to North America, which is called Copperhead because of its copper-colored head.
Like the historical model, the 417 Bronze Copperhead is equipped with a hand-wound caliber. The new 417 Bronze Copperhead can withstand the pressure of the depth up to 10 bar.
Behind the screwed stainless steel back of the 417 ES, the reliable hand-wound caliber SW 510 works in best Swiss Made quality. In addition to a stop-second function, it offers a power reserve of up to 58 hours when fully wound.
The deliberately simple screw-down case back is decorated with the historical Hanhart logo, the Revolution logo and the serial number engraved.
A brown calfskin wrist strap with a leather underlay makes it comfortable to wear from day one. For extra comfort on the skin, the black calfskin strap has Alcantara on the inside. A pin-buckle with the historic Hanhart logo ensures a good grip.
Despite the heavily domed sapphire crystal, the thickness of the case does not exceed 13.3 mm. Its crown shows our historical Hanhart Logo. The hands and numerals of the Hanhart 417 Bronze Copperhead are coated with Super-LumiNova® to ensure optimum readability by day and night.
