SOLD: Hanhart single button ex WW2 Luftwaffe chronograph


SOLD: Hanhart single button ex WW2 Luftwaffe chronograph

This is an ex Luftwaffe single button Hanhart chronograph as used by the German pilot's during WW2. The watch dates from late 1940 or early 1941.

The dial is very nice and original and the lume has aged beautifully. There is what appears to be very minor loss of paint in a couple letters of the writing or it may be dirt but does not detract from what is a super original dial.

The original hands are in lovely condition with completely intact but aged lume.

The case shows wear to the brass in places including the bezel but overall it is very pleasing and exhibits a look of being well used but also well cared for during it's 70 years of life. Stainless steel caseback has the number 107865 which matches the movement number fitted.

The crystal is probably the original and has a few marks but as it is original I would not reccommend it being changed.

Movement - recently cleaned and serviced cal.40 movement which is in very good working condition.

Overall diameter is 39.6mm and the watch is 14.7mm thick

A new dark brown leather strap by Frank Roesky has been fitted.

Overall a great example of an iconic watch that is a real piece of history.
