Pioneer Mk II
80 Jahre Jubilaeum

One of the first pilot’s chronographs
La Cote des Montres - December 7th, 2020

Hanhart’s brand new and strictly limited PIONEER Mk II 80 Jahre Jubilaeum is dedicated to a very special anniversary: 80 years of PIONEER Mk II. Exactly 80 years ago, the historical model served as one of the first pilot’s chronographs.

Today, the PIONEER Mk II 80 Jahre Jubilaeum combines the unique features of the past with the green colors of the Black Forest. This special model is limited to 200 pieces!

The Hanhart PIONEER Mk II 80 Jahre Jubilaeum - made with attention to detail as a tribute to the historic Mk II with the famous “Calibre 41” movement from 1940.

In 1940 the production of the two-pusher model “Calibre 41” started. The large crown and the asymmetrical pusher distance were already then typical Hanhart characteristics and still are today. Other features were: black dial with luminous numbers, recessed seconds, and 30 minutes counter, luminous hands, nickel-plated movement with screw balance and Incabloc shock protection.

All Hanhart chronographs from the PIONEER collection have a stainless steel case back. Here, the historical pilot’s watches from the 1940s serve as a model. On this limited special edition, we used a sapphire glass case back for the first time on a PIONEER chronograph to provide a view of the decorated movement with Hanhart rotor. The reliable, robust and accurate ETA 7753 serves as the basis.

Behind the sapphire glass case back of the PIONEER Mk II 80 Jahre Jubilaeum, the reliable Calibre ETA 7753 works in best Swiss Made quality. In addition to the chronograph function, it offers a power reserve of up to 42 hours. The decorated movement has a pearl cut (special circular pattern) and blue colored screws.

80 years of history in a 40 mm case

The red pusher is made of robust HyCeram® and the pusher distance is asymmetrically arranged, like 80 years ago. To give the anniversary chronograph an unmistakable design, inspired by the Black Forest, green was chosen as the color of the dial and the case has a matt sandblasted finish.

The hands and numerals of the limited PIONEER Mk II 80 Jahre Jubilaeum are coated with Super-LumiNova® greenline C1. This ensures optimal readability at day and night time.

A green canvas strap makes it comfortable to wear from day one. For extra comfort on the skin, the green canvas strap has Alcantara on the inside. A sandblasted pin-buckle ensures a good grip.

The new, limited PIONEER Mk II 80 Jahre Jubulaeum is now available for 2.037,31 Euro including 16% German VAT. In the coming year, after the adjustment to 19% VAT, the price will be 2,090.00 Euro.
