PRIMUS Desert Pilot Dark: The Adventure begins!

PRIMUS Desert Pilot Dark: Hanhart presents the perfect companion for adventurers who seek their balance off the beaten paths. The new chronograph with a black DLC case is limited to 100 pieces. The design is based on the award-winning PRIMUS Desert Pilot and co-mes in a set with a high-quality knife. The robust chronograph combines classic Hanhart features with modern, distinctive design.

DEVELOPED FOR EXPLORERS

The PRIMUS Desert Pilot Dark combines Hanhart’s 130-year tradition with modern elements: As unmistakable Hanhart trademarks, this chronograph features a red pusher and a fluted bezel with a red marking. The sand-colored dial is covered by a convex sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on the inside. The DLC-coated stainless steel case with a screw-down case back made of sapphire crystal provides a clear view of the movement and the skeletonized rotor and makes the precision of the timepiece literally visible.

SET FOR ADVENTURERS

Strictly limited to 100 pieces, the chronograph comes together with a knife for any adventure. You will find the limitation number engraved on the rotor of the chronograph and on the accompanying knife. The dominant Arabic twelve and the skeletonized hands inspire with the clear design and excellent legibility.

KNIFE VULCANUS HORNET

The new PRIMUS Desert Pilot Dark is delivered together with the high-quality and reliable Vulkanus Hornet utility knife incl. belt pouch. The knife can be operated with one hand and is equally suitable for left- and right-handers. The 8 cm long blade made of D2 steel with a hardness of up to 61 HRC and the ceramic ball bearing guarantee durability and low maintenance, even under tough operating conditions. The fully dismountable knife was developed together with the knifemaker Harald Stallegger, former president of the Austrian Knifemakers and in the scene better known as Aquarius.
