Exploring the world of watches on a budget

Hanhart Primus Carrier Pilot

German watch manufacturer Hanhart has added a new variant to its popular Primus Pilot collection. Long known for its aviation chronographs, Hanhart also produced watches for the German Navy. The Primus Carrier Pilot pays tribute to this history with a striking royal blue dial.

Aircraft carriers provide a logical link between sea and sky, and the Carrier echoes this in more than just the blue color of the dial and canvas strap. Like the rest of the Primus Pilot series, the watch has highly legible hands and indexes, a matte finished case, and flexible lugs that make this 44mm watch comfortable to wear.  

The blue dial and canvas strap with leather inlay give the watch a unique look in combination with the gray matte steel case, yet the updated design does not neglect traditional Hanhart features like the fluted bezel with red index inlay and the red pusher. Like in the 30s, Hanharts new chronograph has a bicompax dial, with subdials at 3 o'clock (30-minute) and 9 o’clock (small seconds). 

The PRIMUS Carrier Pilot is now available at Hanhart.com for €2740, or at their US retailer WatchBuys.com for $2970 USD.
