Hanhart 2 Pusher Chronograph Wwii Fleigerchronograph Calibre 41 Coined  Mcqueen


HANHART

one of the two most famous Luftwaffe watch producers in WWII. "HANHART" or "TUTIMA" are the leaders in collectibillity and rarity and stand in a catagory of thier own.
These 2 button watches rarely come on the market for sale. I have seen several 1 button, but rarely the 2 in complete working original condition.

if you are reading this ad, chances are you know this watch, and do not need an exclimation...

This is the series 4 aka calibre 41 and has the ratating coined bezel 2 button flyback. They say they date to early 1940's and this one has one of the lowest production serial numbers i have seen, which would make it a very early one. Everything on the watch is functioning properly , the movement matches, and is in beautiful condition. A service was done a few years back, and still functions properly,Like all antique watches I would suggest service, cleaning, adjustment.

Has very nice dial. the crystal is in great condition considering. Has the typical nickel wear, but this watch is a true survivior, and the patina is priceless....... Some luminesce missing from hour hand. bottom pusher may not be original. band is very old leather, and sewn onto the solid lugs of the case. crystal has light scratches. I have owned this watch for many years, and am thinning out my collection. my loss, your gain. did not clean, or refurbish, left all the history.

The greatest part of adding a watch of this caliber to ones collection, is the watch is desired in many multiple markets, watch , german, military, chronographs, history, and Mcqueen..

TALK ON HANHART TIMEPIECES AROUND THE WEB.


The chronograph watch is an essential component of any fighter pilot’s equipment - he relies on this timepiece for accurate, dead-reckoning navigation, as well as a host of other related time-keeping factors of importance. Hanhart was one of the leading German producers of chronographs in the ‘30’s and ‘40’s and their examples were extensively used by fighter pilots of the Luftwaffe; in fact, only one other chronograph was employed with regularity by the Luftwaffe Jagdfliegern (fighter pilots), this being the equally famous Glashütte Tutima. Hanhart actually made two styles of chronographs with rotating bezels, the other style having a simplified movement configured with only one plunger button vs. the two buttons on this version.

The German Luftwaffe ruled the skies over Europe for four years. History will forever recall the daring, record-holding achievements of the Luftwaffe’s Jagdflieger Experten (experts), who amassed kill records most likely never to be surpassed again. Precision was paramount to these Experten, for in their line of work one small mistake could easily be their last. Not surprisingly, the unquestioned Experte of all time, Major Erich Hartmann, is, in fact, often seen photographed wearing a Hanhart chronograph watch!Today, original Luftwaffe chronograph wristwatches are valued antiques and the most desired of all the military chronographs. These watches will fetch a ransom price from any quarter, as the demand far exceeds the quantity on the market. Such is the rarity of even having the opportunity to buy one of these gems, that the price ticket is actually a secondary concern to just being lucky enough to locate one for sale. Even if one has the good fortune to obtain such a treasure, the evil dilemma to wear or not wear this piece of history surely will face the purchaser. Should the watch still retain its original riveted strap, the increased chance of damage through use makes the dilemma even more cursed.

Steve Mcqueen

There are two watches that most men of a certain mold would associate with Steve McQueen: the automatic Heuer Monaco with blue matte dial (reference 1133B) and the Submariner reference 5512. But McQueen wore many other watches throughout his life, including the Hanhart 417 (or 417ES) chronograph. Hanhart is a German manufacturer that specialized in producing chronographs for the German Air Force, including the Luftwaffe in World War II through the West German Air Force in the 1950s.


McQueen wore one with a black dial throughout his life on a brown leather fatstrap (and at least one pictures shows him wearing it on what looks like a pigskin strap), including in the movie The War Lover, which is a disambiguation anachronism since the movie was set during World War II but the watch was first introduced after WWII. McQueen was known to wear this watch often when he was riding his motorcycle.

It looks like McQueen's watch had writing on the lower half of the dial, likely "SHOCKPROOF" and "ANTIMAGNETIC" like this one or less likely "SHOCKPROOF" and "GERMANY" like this one. It is hard to say whether McQueen had the 417 or 417ES, but my bet would be that he had 417ES given that they seemed more likely to have writing on the lower half of the dial. It is just another sign that McQueen had great taste not only in clothes, cars, and motorcycles, but also in watches.
