Hanhart 417 ES 1954
Return of the original pilot chrono

Hanhart’s 417 ES 1954, in the original case size of 39 mm, pays tribute to their most famous aviation chronograph.

Hanhart originally manufactured the 417 as the first pilot’s chronograph for the, then newly founded, German armed forces in-line with three guiding principles of sturdiness, reliability, and readability. For over a decade, Hanhart supplied the German Bundeswehr with the original model until the company shifted its focus to the production of precision, hand-held stopwatches from 1963 onwards. The few surviving examples of the historic 417 have since become sought-after vintage chronographs for collectors.

As a result of the successful debut of the 417 ES with a 42 mm case, the long-established brand from Gütenbach, situated in the Black Forest, focused upon capturing the essence of the pilot watch. As such, the 417 ES 1954 represents a return to the classic form and function of its predecessor. This connection is further highlighted in its name – with ‘ES’ standing for ‘Edelstahl’ (German for stainless steel) and ‘1954’ noting the model’s very first year of production. Thus, Hanhart’s most legendary chronograph, in its historically correct case size of 39 mm, is reborn as part of the official, non-limited collection.

According to Hanhart, the watch also acts as a time machine because it combines the style-defining details of the past with contemporary state-of-the-art materials. Particularly refined are the sharp, highly polished chamfers, that mark the transition from the satin-finished lugs to the sides. As a typical Hanhart design element, the fluted bezel rotates smoothly in both directions. Its red position marker is just as reminiscent of the historical model as the details on the dial of the watch. The bi-compax layout and the lettering also reflect the details on the earlier 417 model. The numbers, fonts and logo from the old days have all been revived to ensure both authenticity and design coherence.

To ensure precision and reliability, the chronograph is equipped with the trusty, hand-wound calibre SW510 with ‘Swiss Made’ quality. In addition to stop-seconds, it offers a 58-hour power reserve when fully wound. The historic 417 was likewise manually wound, although its range of action outside the cockpit was severely limited due to its low water resistance. The new 417 ES 1954 is water-resistant up to 10 bar (100m), proving that contemporary advancements in horology do indeed result in better functionality.

A black calfskin ´Bund´-style (cuff) strap ensures a high level of comfort from the very beginning. This band is finished with an Alcantara lining to deliver a particularly pleasant feeling to the skin. A stainless-steel pin buckle featuring the historic Hanhart logo secures the watch to the wrist.

Hanhart’s 417 ES 1954 allows watch enthusiasts to wear a watch that pays tribute to the heritage of the brand and delivers the functionality of modern watchmaking and quality standards.
