Introducing the Hanhart S-Series Collection, a tribute to the Saab 105

Watch Factoryif

Hanhart’s new S-Series is a small assortment of restricted version device watches released in festival of the 50th anniversary of the presentation of the famous Saab 105 into the Austrian Air Force. The Saab 105 is a genuinely amazing airplane, created as a joint endeavor among Saab and the Swedish military. Dissimilar to a ton of military planes used as inspiration for restricted release watches, the Saab 105 was never really intended to see combat (albeit later versions made specifically for the Austrians were furnished for this purpose) – it was designed as a coach airplane, and for quite a long time was among the most flown planes by Austrian and Swedish service members, making it something of an airplane clique classic.

The new watches from Hanhart are totally inspired by Saab 105 instrument clusters to some degree. The assortment consists of two GMTs and one with just time and date. The S 105 OE and S 105 OE GMT are stripped down and sleek in their dark PVD covering, and are intended to summon the cockpit of the Austrian version of the Saab 105. The SK 60 GMT, with its striking yellow accents on the seconds and GMT hands, is a praise to the Swedish version of the airplane, known as the SK 60. 

As is customary for Hanhart, these watches are designed for extreme decipherability. The splendid white hour markers and hands burst forward from the dark bereft of the dial and case to present inconceivably clearly. Hanhart is guided by the guideline of building watches that make no compromises in their robustness, and there’s something about a passed out flight watch that exudes unwavering quality and toughness to me. 

At 40mm, with a slight bezel and short lugs, the watches in the S-Series rest comfortably in present day sports watch an area. One of the charms of these military aeronautics inspired watches is the means by which brands separate themselves to a great extent through subtle, sometimes out and out moment, differences in dial design, as case calculation in this classification of watch has an almost standard layout. The S-Series case is similar to a ton of watches in this class, from brands like IWC, Laco, Archimede, and others, however the small details of these specific dials may draw riveted consideration from specific enthusiasts, where others could hold no interest by any stretch of the imagination. It just goes to show that even inside the smallest watch sub-sets, there truly is something for everyone. 

Each watch in the S-Series is restricted to 105 pieces and will be accessible in November. Hanhart is permitting pre-orders with the capacity to choose your restricted release number of decision as they stay accessible. More data can be found on the Hanhart website. Hanhart
