Hanhart launches Primus Racer’s Chronograph watch in UAE

In the past, Hanhart stopwatches have always played a key part in leading motor sports events. Timers held their leather clipboard in their left hand, and with their right hand they operated the three Hanhart stopwatches mounted on the brackets. They accurately recorded the lap times.

Classic rally drivers like Michael Münzenmaier from the town of Erdmannhausen in southern Germany rely on Hanhart watches to this day. The winner of the Classic Masters in 2004 and 2005 has likewise depended on an entire range of Hanhart stopwatches for many years in his exploits in his Jaguar XK 140 OTS, built in 1956: these include two countdown watches, three split-second watches, two split-timer watches with a flyback function and bezel with retrograde scale and the Tachymaster series 30, 40 and 50. “The appeal of these stopwatches lies in their reliability, accuracy and unmistakable handling,” says the passionate rally driver. The verve with which the graduate engineer and architect pursues his hobby is also reflected in the classic Tachymaster, which Hanhart introduced in 2008 as a world-first: Michael Münzenmaier is the “inventor” of the watch, which displays the distance to be travelled and thus permits the stages to be timed much more easily.
