Collectible Rarest Antique HANHART cal. 40 Pilot Aviator Wrist Watch Working
Legendary, Original, Antique, WWII Luftwaffe Pilots HANHART Flieger, Monopusher, Chronograph, caliber 40 aviator wristwatch, year of manufacture circa 1938. Serial number 105301 on the movement and on the case. The original chrome-plated nickel case has a diameter of 40 mm, so the watch is relatively large. The original crown for winding is large, so that the watch can be easily winded even for a pilot with gloves. Original rotating bezel with indicator. Dial is original - metallic in super condition. Watch hands are original with luminescent paint. Nice, clean, smooth going, watch movement with antishock system (for the first time in the world, this system was used on this chronograph) is fully fitted with stones - 17 ruby jewels. Hanhart watches are mentioned in all publications of aviation watches.
This watch is often described as pioneering, as the first modern chronograph in the world. Look carefully at the pictures. I give for free, new wooden, lacquered watch box and quality, genuine leather TIMEMASTER brand watch strap of 20 mm width. LEGEND WITH LEGEND ON HAND. In the last photo in my photo gallery is the most successful fighter pilot of all time, a German, Luftwaffe air ace, World War II, pilot, Major Erich Hartmann (352 kills) with the same model watch on hand.
The later two-button version of this watch was also popular with the famous American actor and racer Steve McQeen (see link below).
