* The reissue of the Hanhart 417 ES marks the return of a legend among wristwatches. More than 60 years ago, this historic model served as the first pilot’s chronograph for the German armed forces in the mid 1950s with three pieces of essential criteria in mind: Robustness, reliability and readability. Hanhart supplied the German armed forces with the 417 chronograph for almost ten years, until the company 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.


* With the new Hanhart 417 ES 1954, Hanhart are celebrating the return of this legendary chronograph but this time in its original size of 39mm. Its fluted bezel rotates smoothly in both directions and its red position markings are reminiscent of the original model from the 1950s. The numbers and lettering of the dial in the characteristic bicompax layout as well as the symmetrical button arrangement were also taken from the historical model. Behind the screwed stainless steel back of the 417 ES 1954, the reliable hand-wound caliber SW 510 M. In addition to the stop-second function, it offers a power reserve of up to 58 hours when fully wound.


* The 417 ES is a living piece of German watchmaking and Hanhart tradition.

Tradition and Expertise since 1882.

Hanhart first began trading on July 1st 1882 when Swiss watchmaker Johann A. Hanhart opened a watch shop in Diessenhofen, north-east Switzerland. The company quickly re-located to Schwenningen, southern Germany in 1902 and found instant success in 1924 with their first affordable, mechanical stopwatch. By 1938, Hanhart were a pioneer in the production of mechanical chronograph wristwatches, designed for pilots and by the 1960s had also moved into fine timing for sports events and motor racing.

Today, Hanhart still produce a varied range of wristwatches and fine timing stopwatches, tapping into their rich heritage of mechanical watchmaking know-how to produce pieces of incredible craftmanship and functional good looks.
