    @classicwatch: Oh, another nice Cal. 40 "Straight Seven". What serial number ist it? I guess it is a late WWII one or an early 1950's one.

    A clear indicate for a WWII is a Serialnumber on the caseback, late do have a 126... number. It is known that Hanhart only marked the issued ones for Luftwaffe with movement number for stocktaking and bookkeeping.

    I'd agree with that! Mine is 124k, so I was dating it to very late 43 or early 44.

    Right! I like the ones without rotating bezel more because their look is more archaic and optically much bigger than the 1 mm smaller models with rotating bezel. The case of the plain bezel is much better and thicker, eg. the crown fits much better due to the longer tube.

    I so regret selling my French Airforce Vixa Hanhart seeing these pictures.

    Billy, may I just rub a little salt in your wounds

    Don't talk to me about naval tradition. It's nothing but rum, sodomy and the lash.

    That's a nice one I bet there's a few more you have not posted yet. Wished some one would start making straps like that for Hanharts instead of some of the bad looking straps in the PX I seen lately. There's money in Military recreations watch straps for various vintage issues watches like one of our members did on those cloth ones for British issue watches that were close to the originals.

    @Accutronitis: Yes, these 39 mm diameter Chronographs are equipped with Hanhart signed Valjoux 23. Nobody knows exactly when these Chronographs have been made and how many were produced.

    @river rat: My straps are made by an italian strapmaker according to one of my original 1940's strap. The main thing is the one piece buckle. A friend of mine helped me with a few laser cut rawlings which I manually fine tuned.





    Best regards

    Felix
