xactly 140 years ago, Johann A. Hanhart set the cornerstone for Hanhart as a brand. What started as a shop selling watches swiftly evolved into a manufacture, producing precise timepieces with a stop function.
In celebration of this anniversary, the brand presents its new 417 ES Flyback. The watch is available in two case sizes with two dial options, each of which is equipped with Hanhart’s manual-winding flyback calibre with its integrated column wheel.
When Hanhart reissued the legendary 417 ES two years ago in a 42 mm stainless steel case, it marked the beginning of a great success story. Earlier this year, the brand released an additional version - the 417 ES 1954 - which, with its 39 mm case, is the same size as the historical watch dwelling in its museum. Today, the brand is celebrating 140 years of Hanhart by launching four versions of the new 417 ES Flyback.
In tribute to its long tradition of producing chronographs, the brand is bringing the flyback function back to its most popular collection. Even the historic 417 ES, originally designed for pilots of the German Air Force, was equipped with “Temposchaltung”, as the flyback function is also called. The mechanism allows immediate measurement of a new timing interval by using the reset pusher. The new, first-class AMT5100 M calibre originates from Sellita’s manufacture AMT department. It controls the chronograph via column wheel and has a power reserve of at least 58 hours when fully wound.
In order to make the new 417 ES Flyback as versatile as possible, Hanhart offers both 39 mm and 42 mm stainless-steel cases. Apart from the size, there is only one technological difference between the 39 mm and 42 mm models: the 42 mm watch has a transparent sapphire crystal caseback revealing the new flyback calibre, while the 39 mm model is manufactured with an anti-magnetic case, which is resistant up to 16,000 A/m according to DIN 8309. All of the new timepieces are water-resistant up to 10 bar.
In addition to the technical development, the new 417 ES Flyback stands out visually from the previously launched versions. Each case size is available with both the white and black Panda dial or the black and white Reverse Panda dial. Either of the two designs provides strong contrasts and perfect readability even in poor lighting conditions, thanks to use of Super-LumiNova C3.
Released to celebrate Hanhart’s 140th anniversary, the four new models of the 417 ES Flyback pay tribute to the brand’s history in producing precision chronographs. They are part of its permanent, non-limited collection and available now for € 2,390 incl. VAT.
