PRIMUS FLY NAVY Limited Edition
Strictly limited to 150 pieces!
A new special edition, limited to a total of only 150 pieces, now complements the PRIMUS collection of the watch manufacturer Hanhart from the Black Forest: the PRIMUS FLY NAVY. A reliable and robust chronograph is rarely as needed as when flying low over the sea in a stormy night. Whether in the Arctic or in the tropics, in the ocean or in the coastal mountains, flying in the Marine often faces severe conditions. The PRIMUS FLY NAVY Chronograph is precise, reliable and easy to read by day and night, making it easy to fly without further navigational assistance. In the German Navy, precision and tradition have been high on the agenda for over 110 years, and Hanhart has also been following this maxim since 1882. It is reflected in this limited special edition
HANHART AND AVIATION
The significant connection between Hanhart and aviation dates back to the 1930s, when Hanhart built the first mechanical pilot’s watch, the Calibre 40 Mono-pusher Chronograph. In aviation, automatic pilot watches had to withstand extreme shocks, enormous temperature fluctuations, large differences in altitude and fluctuating weather conditions – challenges with which air forces are still familiar today.
Flying over the sea has always required the highest precision and a keen understanding of the elements. In few other places do the forces of nature have such a direct impact as in a low-level flight over sea on a stormy night, at which a swaying deck awaits the pilot for landing. The limited PRIMUS FLY NAVY is a reliable and precise chronograph as well as the perfect companion on your wrist in such challenging situations.

A special feature of the PRIMUS watch are the flexible lugs, which provide optimal wearing comfort for any wrist even with a diameter of 44 mm. The limited chronograph fits as an eyecatching watch for a relaxed beach vacation and is also a reliable timepiece for challenging tasks of the naval forces.
The limited PRIMUS FLY NAVY chronograph combines precision and tradition with various maritime details. The second is shown by the trident of the sea god Poseidon according to Greek mythology, which can also be found on the crest of the Naval Flying Squadron 3 „Graf Zeppelin“. On the sapphire crystal caseback, the crest of either the MFG3 „Graf Zeppelin“ or MFG5 squadron can be found. To complete the unique details of the limited edition naval watch, the “Marinefliegerlogo” is depicted on the navy blue dial and on the screw-in crown of the chronograph.
Limited to 150 pieces
