The Watch

Here we have a 2020 Hanhart 417 ES Bronze Rake & Revolution Limited to 150 pieces, the watch is inspired by the Hanhart 417 Flieger or pilots chronograph made of brass and chrome famously worn by Steve McQueen while out riding one of his motorcycles. Made in collaboration with Rake and Revolution magazines founded by Wei KohThe bronze CuSn8 case was specifically chosen due to its properties to quickly patina and has a 42mm curving over your wrist with tapered flat-ended lugs, a lug-to-lug length of 49.5mm and a case thickness of 13mm giving the watch an impressive wrist presence. Down the right side, we have the piston chronograph pushers and a signed crown in the centre. The distinctive fine-fluted bidirectional bezel with the characteristic flash of red at 12 o’clock holds a domed sapphire crystal above a matte black dial. An outer minute track is precisely executed with large Arabic numerals marking the hours coated in Super LumiNova, at 3 o’clock a 30-minute register and at 9 o’clock continuous seconds register, elegant syringe style hands are infilled with Super LumiNova and complemented by a finely tapered chronograph hand completes this vintage-inspired bi-compax chronograph. At 12 o’clock we have the Hanhart motif “23 Jewels” and at 6 o’clock “Shockproof”. On the reverse, a screw-down stainless steel case back with “Revolution” 417 Bronze Edition /150  “Hanhart” deeply engraved, inside a manually wound Sellita SW 510 M, 23 jewels, beating at 28,800 beats per hour. The watch comes fitted on its 21mm Hanhart Bund leather strap with a signed bronze buckle, the watch comes with its Hanhart presentation box, travel case and paperwork.


Personal Note

This is the perfect example of value that can still be found in the market with brands that are, in my opinion, massively underrated! Just on the spec sheet alone, this watch represents great value, but when you take a look at the watch on and off the wrist it totally blows that price out of the water! I wouldn't hesitate on this if you are interested.


The Brand

Hanhart was founded in 1882 by watchmaker Johann A. Hanhart. Situated in the small town of Diessenhofen near the River Rhine in Switzerland. In 1902 he relocated to Schwenningen in southern Germany, and Johann's son Wilhelm Julius joined the company in 1920. Innovation and efficient manufacturing techniques saw the introduction of a mechanical stopwatch in 1924. By 1926 they had increased the product range to include wristwatches. In 1938 they produced the single-button “Calibre 40”, which became the mainstay of the company. Expansion during 1939 had the company employing 200 staff. Hanhart chronographs were worn by pilots and naval officers with the production of the iconic “Calibre 41”, their first two-button chronograph. During the war years, production had to stop and Wilhelm fled to neutral Switzerland not returning to Germany until 1949. They entered the very first BaselWorld in 1952. The Hanhart Calibre 42 was developed in 1957 and was used by the Luftwaffe of Germany in 1962. Celebrating their 175th Anniversary in 2007 They created the “Opus 41” a hand-wound chronograph in platinum, equipped with an original, Hanhart “Calibre 41”, which was limited to 39 watches. Today they continue to create timepieces using the latest technology and materials whilst keeping to their founding principles.
