THE LONG-AWAITED 39MM VERSION - 417 ES RED LION
With the 417 ES, Hanhart celebrated the return of a legend among chronographs in 2020. The wish of many collectors for the original diameter is now being fulfilled. The new 417 ES Red Lion, limited to 150 pieces, not only brings back a case of 39 mm, but also the iconic red pusher. Vintage Light Old Radium Super-LumiNova® brings additional charm of the past to the wrist.
LIMITED TO 150 PIECES:
417 ES RED LION
Limited to 150 pieces, the Hanhart 417 ES Red Lion picks up on the original diameter of 39 mm, making it perfect for smaller wrists. Thanksto the hand-wound caliber, the watch has an overall height of 13.3 mm despite the heavily domed sapphire crystal, which gives it a presence on the wrist but does not make it look disproportionate.
UNIQUE LIKE THE HISTORIC PREDECESSOR
A sharply drawn and polished marks the transition from the satin-finished horns to the flanks. As a typical stylistic feature of a Hanhart, the fluted bezel rotates smoothly in both directions. Its red position markings are as reminiscent of the historical model of the 1950s as the details on the watch’s dial. The bicompax layout and the lettering seem to have been cut from the face of the early 417. In order to convince even die-hard vintage fans, we have also adopted the numbers and fonts from back then.
The chronograph was developed together with the world-renowned watch enthusiast TGV. His Youtube channel The Urban Gentry enjoys great popularity and he himself discovered the 417 ES many years ago as a “Grail-Watch” for himself. The cooperation is marked on the caseback and his logo in combination with the red pusher lead to the nickname of the watch: Red Lion.
PRECISION CALIBER WITH DAMPING-SYSTEM
To ensure that our latest chronograph not only looks good but also runs precisely, the reliable hand-wound caliber SW 510 works behind the screwed stainlesssteel back in best Swiss Made quality. In addition to a stop-second function, it offers a power reserve of up to 58 hours when fully wound. Made with special Hanhart damping-system for movement protection.
The deliberately simple screw-down case back is made of stainless steel and is decorated with the historical Hanhart logo, the limited number XXX/150 and The Urban Gentry Logo.
A black calfskin wrist strap with a leather underlay makes it comfortable to wear from day one. For extra comfort on the skin, the black calfskin strap has Alcantara on the inside. A pinbuckle with the historic Hanhart logo ensures a good grip.
The new 417 ES Red Lion comes with Hanhart’s trademark: the red pusher. The legend says that the pilot tenderly pressed a kiss to his sleeping wife’s forehead before quietly leaving the
apartment. When he looked at his Hanhart chronograph in the hangar, a smile flitted across his lips: she had painted the pusher with her red nail polish so that he would always think of her and return safely …
Vintage Light Old Radium Super-LumiNova® is used for the 417 ES Red Lion. Together with the white lettering and hands, they form a pleasing contrast to the matte, deep black dial.
