Hanhart 417 ES Hand-Wound Chronograph – The return of a legend.
With the new Hanhart 417 ES, we celebrate the return of a legend among stopwatches. More than 60 years ago, its historical template serves as the first pilot chronograph of the German Armed Forces. Today, it combines the best design from back then with the most modern manufacturing techniques of our time. The result: a robust chronograph with an exciting history for everyday life and adventure.
THE LEGENDARY 417
Robustness, reliability and readability. It was according to these three criteria that Hanhart began building the first pilot chronograph for the German armed forces in the mid-1950s. Its name is 417 and its mission is uncompromising use on the wrist of pilots. Hanhart supplied the German armed forces with the chronograph for almost ten years, until the brand concentrated on building hand-held stopwatches in 1963. The few surviving examples of the original 417 have since become the most sought-after vintage chronographs from Germany.
With the new Hanhart 417 ES, whose appended letter abbreviation stands for stainless steel as it once did, we celebrate the return of this legendary stopwatch.
TRADITION IN DETAIL
The 417 ES is a piece of living Hanhart tradition. Its fluted bezel rotates continuously in both directions and its red position marker is reminiscent of the original from the 1950s. The numbers and lettering of the dial in the characteristic bicompax layout as well as the symmetrical pusher spacing were also adopted from the historical model. That is why it rightly bears the historic Hanhart logo.
Like its historical model, the 417 ES features a hand-wound caliber. The action radius of the historic 417 was severely limited outside the cockpit due to manageable water resistance. That’s why our new 417 ES can withstand the pressure of depth up to 10 bar.
Behind the screwed stainless steel caseback of the 417 ES, the reliable hand-wound caliber SW 510 M works in best Swiss Made quality. In addition to stop-seconds, it offers a power autonomy of up to 58 hours when fully wound.
The screwed case back is deliberately kept simple and is adorned with the historic Hanhart logo and the serial number engraved on the side.
The 417 ES wears comfortably from day one with its black calfskin bracelet complete with waistband-style carpet pad. For extra comfort against the skin, the black calfskin strap has been fitted with Alcantara on the inside. A pin buckle with a historic Hanhart logo ensures a good hold.
Contemporary size, maximum wearing comfort
Our goal was to design the 417 ES to be as slim as possible, so that it would look present on the wrist but not disproportionate. Despite the heavily domed sapphire crystal, it is only 13.3 mm high.
Its crown is adorned with our historical logo.
The hands and numerals of the Hanhart 417 ES are coated with Super-LumiNova® to ensure optimal readability day and night.
