Nothing subtle about this one. The Hanhart Primus Black Ops Pilot is a hefty tool watch with matching measurements. A black DLC coated stainless steel case with a 44-millimeter diameter and a thickness of 15 millimeters.
Before we go into the new limited chronograph from Hanhart, a quick piece of trivia. The legendary actor and not too shabby racing driver Steve McQueen is mostly known for wearing his Heuer Monaco. But you’d be wrong in thinking this was his favorite watch.
The story goes McQueen loved Hanhart, and more specifically the 417ES of which there are only 500. Film fans can see the watch being worn in The War Lover. He also wore the piece during the International Six Day Trial Motor Race in 1964.
The Hanhart Primus Black Ops Pilot is limited to 82 pieces
Back to today. The Primus Black Ops Pilot is not haute horlogerie, but if you are up for a masculine tool watch with proven quality and a brand that you will not see on every other wrist, this Hanhart Primus Black Ops Pilot chronograph is a good choice.
The striking Hanhart details are there of course: the distinctive fluted bezel with the eye-catching red marking, the typical bi-compax display arrangement of the chronograph and the anodized aluminum red button. All of this gives the Primus an uncompromising rugged look, but comfortable on the wrist thanks to its flexible lugs and the durable fabric strap.
The Hanhart Primus Black Ops Pilot comes on a green fabric textile strap and is limited to 82 pieces, honoring the foundation of Hanhart in 1882.
