Hanhart is a brand you'll hopefully be hearing more about soon. The Austrian (I believe) sports watch brand has evolved into something quite nice over the last few years and might finally get the attention it deserve in the US under new North American oversight by the man who made Chronoswiss popular in the States. One of Hanhart's newer models is this Primus Choronograph watch. I wonder if the rock band Primus has anything to say about this? Maybe Hanhart just gave them all watches.
The Primus Chronograph comes essentially in two forms - one with and one without a rotating diver's bezel. The models with the bezel are referred to as the Primus Chronograph Divers, while the bezel-less version are the Pilots or Racers. The watches are 44mm wide in steel cases that have been aDLC coated black. The aDLC coating is very hard and scratch resistant. Note the red chronograph start/stop pusher. The dials on both models are a bit different and come in orange or steel/white. My top pick is the Diver. It has a neat looking striped rubber strap and easy to read dial. The Primus Chronograph watches use modified Swiss Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movements Look for these nice lookers soon.
