417 Bronze Hanhart X Revolution Edition Mk II 39 Copperhead
The new chronograph from Hanhart from the black forest presents itself in bronze with a case diameter of 39 mm. Following the successful debut of the 417 in 2020, a limited timepiece of a special kind was again developed this year in collaboration with the Revolution magazine and The Rake. A copper-colored dial with sunray finish, hands matching the color of the case, a brown leather strap and an embossed stainless steel case back underscore the one-of-a-kind character.
Hanhart, the Revolution Magazine and The Rake unveiled the first reissue of the historic 417 as a limited edition chronograph in the fall of 2020. The bronze model sold out within a very short time and enjoys great popularity among watch connoisseurs. The new 417 Bronze Edition fulfills an unfulfilled wish of many collectors: the diameter is 39 mm, just like the historical model.
Limited to 200 pieces, the chronograph shines with a copper-colored sunray dial, which shows different facets depending on light and brightness. Bronze-colored hands round out the watch’s appearance, which is responsible for the timepiece’s nickname: Copperhead. The nickname comes from a species of viper native to North America, which is called Copperhead because of its copper-colored head.
417 Bronze Hanhart X Revolution Edition Mk II 39 Copperhead now with 39mm diameter
The Copperhead uses an aluminum-bronze alloy, which takes a longer time to add patina. At the same time, the color tone is brighter. The heavily domed sapphire crystal with its inner anti-reflective coating guarantees absolute scratch resistance, and with a case height of only about 13 mm, the chronograph is not too bulky, despite the leather underband. With a water resistance of 10 bar, the pilot chronograph is also protected against moisture.
Inside ticks the proven Sellita hand-wound caliber SW 510 with 28,800 vibrations per hour, bicompax layout and 23 jewels. A power reserve of at least 58 hours guarantees that you can get through the weekend with one winding. The running second is located at 9 o’clock and a 30 minute stop at 3 o’clock. The new Hanhart movement damping system provides additional protection against shocks and vibration.
Numerals and hands covered with SuperLuminova® ensure perfect readability even at night. The minute and second hand are bent at the tip to prevent a parallax error when reading the watch. The practical adjustable rotating bezel without clicks and with red insert reflects the aviator character of the watch. The crown with the historic Hanhart “h” ensures easy opera- bility. The embossed case back, which bears the limitation number, is made of stainless steel to prevent discoloration of the skin by the bronze case.
The new Copperhead, limited to 200 pieces, can be ordered now for 1730 Euro excl. VAT on the Revolution website.
