Abu Dhabi (UAE), 1 April 2015 – Hanhart, Timing Partner of the successful rally pilot Stephan Schott, proved in the desert of Abu Dhabi that its sportive chronograph PRIMUS Desert Pilot can withstand some of the most extreme conditions.
ABU DHABI DESERT CHALLENGE
The Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge is one of the world’s most prestigious international cross-country rallies with the five-day motor sport spectacular. Friend of the brand and pilot Stephan Schott (GER) and team colleague Xavier Panseri (FRA) have taken up the challenge in the desert and performed very well in the first stages. However, heavy conditions caused a high-speed crash with six times rollover on the fourth day of the competition against the time. The drivers are doing well; they reached their limits and proved top performance.
PARALLELS WITH RALLY RACING
The robust timepiece PRIMUS Desert Pilot highlights through technical achievement and sportive design the strong parallels with rally racing. The name chosen for this chronograph is a tribute to the distinctive and adventurous rally sport in the desert and encourages innovative engineering. With their aim to provide best quality, Hanhart commits to ongoing performance and technical progress.
