SOLD: Hanhart WW2 Luftwaffe 2 Pusher Cal.41 Chronograph Watch


SOLD: Hanhart WW2 Luftwaffe 2 Pusher Cal.41 Chronograph Watch

This is a really exceptional example of a two pusher Hanhart chronograph which dates to around 1945 - right at the end of WW2 or maybe just post war.

The watch came from the German family of the original owner who was a technician at the Rechlin Luftwaffe Testing Site during WW2.

The watch was overhauled by the renowned German watchmaker Frank Roesky in 2009 at a total cost of  1050 Euro.

The watch measures 41mm diam ex the crown and 14mm in thickness.

Case

Examples of this type of watch often have damaged and worn plating or in many instances have had the plating replaced. This example has original plating which is as intact as any example I have ever seen.  It is in truly superb condition all round with only minor signs of wear. The caseback is stainless steel which is a major improvement on the earlier examples of this type of chronograph which often have plated brass casebacks which suffer badly from wear over the decades of use. Earlier examples had the movement number on the caseback, this example does not which is a key factor in helping identify its date of production.

Dial & Hands

Beautiful  original dial in stunning condtion. The hands are in the same lovely condition.

Movement

Fully serviced in 2009 – and the service documents from Frank Roesky detailing all work completed will be included with the watch sale. The Cal.41 movement works flawlessly and is in top class condition having been used very little since it was serviced. The movement number is 130475.

Plexi

Replacement plexi in the original style in undamaged and unscratched condition

Strap

Genuine mid brown leather strap by Frank Roesky in excellent condtion. These straps closely resemble the original straps and are very well made.

As good an example of this type of watch that you are likely to find for sale anywhere.
