PRIMUS Carrier Pilot – Get ready to take off with Hanhart’s stunning Carrier Pilot chronograph
Having gained a solid reputation as a manufacturer of precision aviation chronographs, Hanhart has used this expertise to branch into the field of nautical aviation by creating watches for the Navy and its highly-trained pilots. The PRIMUS Carrier Pilot chronograph is the culmination of years of watchmaking knowledge and extensive field testing.
An aircraft carrier is a warship that serves as a seagoing airbase. Landing on a carrier is one of the most challenging and dangerous flying operations a pilot must accomplish, especially at night or during bad weather. The PRIMUS Carrier Pilot is the perfect companion for these manoeuvers thanks to its perfect legibility, day and night, non-reflective matt case, easily-distinguishable crown & pushers and flexible lugs for maximum wearing comfort.
In addition to its functional attributes, the PRIMUS Carrier Pilot combines the ‘look’ of air and water, resulting in a function-specific timepiece of enduring quality and striking aesthetics. Special design features such as the ocean-blue coloured dial and nautical, waterproof canvas strap speak to the seafarer, whereas the bold hands and indexes reflect the sleek design of a pilot’s chronograph.
Despite its modern, seamless design, the Carrier Pilot chronograph does not ignore signature Hanhart features such as the fluted bezel with red index inlay and the red pusher. Other classic Hanhart features such as the bicompax dial where the small subsidiary dials are located at 3 and 9 o’clock ensure a harmonious design as well as a useful tracking function: the small second at 9 o’clock displays the second count while the 30-minute stop is shown on the sub-dial at 3 o’clock.
Whether you are a pilot flying for the Navy, a water sport enthusiast or just a lover of quality watches with significant heritage, Hanhart’s PRIMUS Carrier Pilot will appeal to your sense of purpose and style.
