Unveiled on October 2012, the Hanhart Pioneer Racemaster GTM (ref. 737.670-0010) automatic chronograph is based on their older Hanhart Pioneer MonoScope self-winding chrono that was presented back in January 2012. Powered by the same movement and coming in the same stainless steel case, the Racemaster GTM features a different bezel and sports a color scheme that just screams ‘1970s’!
The German watchmaker Hanhart keeps expanding its Pioneer line of chronographs. Predictably featuring similar styling, the new Hanhart Pioneer MonoScope is available in two versions, both of them powered by the same modified automatic movement. If only it wasn’t so big!
The new Hanhart Pioneer Stealth 1882 Chronographbasically sports the same layout as their recent Pioneer TachyTele, but comes in a much bigger, bolder body, which is protected from accidental dents and scratches with a mean-looking black DLC treatment: a rare feature in this price range.
The German watchmaker Hanhart has recently released a bunch of new chronograph timepieces that belong to their Pioneer family. While the previous pair of models are more conformist in their appearance and look more or less like your usual vintage-styled chronograph, the Hanhart Pioneer TachyTele Chronograph Automatic easily draws attention to itself with its more unusual exterior.
Hanhart is not as well-known outside of Germany as their competitors from Sinn or, say, Mühle Glashütte. Yet, even if they feel uncomfortable about that, I am sure that they still can find solace in knowing that there are not so many independent brands out there that enjoy an as long history of making fine watches as they do. Established in Switzerland back in 1882, Hanhart now operates on the other side of the border in a German town of Gütenbach, Baden-Württemberg. Preparing for its 130th anniversary, the watchmaking specialist will soon present its new collection of chronographs. The sporty Primus Chronograph Diver is one of them.
