Hanhart has unveiled a limited edition Primus Nautic Pilot in a bronze-coated case.
Bronze is fast becoming a mainstream material for watchmakers, with many making the alloy’s ageing process, which sees it darken over time, as a selling point.
Hanhart has taken the decision to protect the bronze so that it does not change colour, and is focusing instead on the hardness of its coating, which it says is more scratch-resistant than steel.
“The Primus Nautic Pilot Bronze stands out from the crowd with its distinctive design. Due to its durability and build quality, it is the perfect companion for all kinds of activities: in the air or on the water, on the plane or on the yacht, on the beach or in the office,” the company says.
The latest limited edition has a royal blue dial with skeletonised hands. They adopt signature styles from Hanhart including a fluted bezel with red index point and the red pusher.
The 44mm watch houses an automatic Sellita SW510 chronograph movement.
Hanhart is making 300 of the bronze watch. They are available for pre-order for October delivery at €2,950.
