By TLex HANHART have upped the water-resistance of the PRIMUS Diver from 100m to 300m.
With 3 times the water-resistance this beautifully detailed and very finely made German diving chronograph is a bonafide dive watch.
It should finally get some of the attention that it deserves because by all accounts it is an exquisite looking dive watch.
Not only is it rather unique, but it has some really lovely features such as Hanhart's signature red-anodized chrono pusher, its striking fluted concave bezel and hinged lug system.
Did you know that Hanhart once supplied the German Navy with chronographs? These included the single-button 'Calibre 40' and stopwatches.
Today naval officers, leisure sailors and divers still wear wristwatches or use stopwatches from Hanhart both on and under the water . . .
