The German watchmaker expands its popular pilot chronograph Pioneer with a new dial iteration, Reverse Panda Mk 1 & Mk II, with single pusher or traditional chronograph configuration
The popular dial variant with black and white elements provides not only a good contrast, but also a distinctive look. Perfect readability, maximum reliability and ease of use: the construction and design of pilot chronographs follow clear criteria. The PIONEER Mk I model as a single-pusher chronograph, and the PIONEER Mk II model as a chronograph with asymmetrical pusher distance are among the most iconic Hanhart wristwatches manufactured according to these requirements.
The uncluttered dial without date in conjunction with the distinctive cathedral hands,
guarantees perfect readability. The curved tips of the second and minute hands help
to avoid parallax errors. Hands and numerals covered with Super-LumiNova® allow
the time to be displayed even at night.
Behind the screwed stainless steel case back, the robust automatic caliber ETA 7753
in best Swiss Made quality ensures reliability and precision. In addition to a second
stop, it offers a power reserve of at least 42 hours when fully wound. With a water re-
sistance of up to 10 bar, the PIONEER Mk I and PIONEER Mk II are not only suitable
for use in the cockpit.
A large crown and Hanhart's typical fluted bezel with a red position marker, which is
continuously adjustable in both directions, ensure optimum operability. The legend of
the red pusher, which is supposed to prevent pilots from inadvertently resetting the
stopwatch, tells of a pilot's wife who marked her sweetheart's pusher red with nail
polish so that he would always think of her and return home safely.
A strap made of black calfskin ensures high wearing comfort from the first day. A
stainless steel pin buckle with Hanhart logo provides a secure fit. Optional, a stain-
less steel bracelet and leather straps in other colors are available.
The PIONEER Mk I is immediately available for 2.090,- Euro incl. VAT and PIONEER
Mk II for 1.990,00 Euro incl. VAT.
