Much as in life, it's difficult for all of our gear to really be ready for anything at any moment. Yet, this just launched Hanhart Primus Survivor Pilot watch goes just about as far as it can without going over the top in any dimension. Designed to be for the "urban survivor" that moves easily from boardroom to the back woods, this Primus Survivor Pilot watch checks plenty of boxes in either environment, but also recognizes the need for balance. While its dark olive colored woven fabric strap may be difficult to pair with a three piece suit, it will be difficult to fray or discolor like leather, which is important if you decide to test its 100m water resistance often. The stainless steel, sand-blasted case and the bezel rotates and is marked with a red dot for direction and plenty of green lume for an easy viewing in low light conditions. The sapphire crystal also sports an anti-reflective coating, which is fitting for military issue, but it can also be helpful for making sure you're on-point for your meetings just as much as you are for your extraction. Power reserve is noted at 42 hours, which, of course, shouldn't be a problem on a hike, and that powers a calibre HAN3089 with a skeletonized rotor. Two subdials balance the larger chronograph while the back of the case marks each watch's place in the 50 total that will be produced. Delivered in its own handmade watch pouch, you can pre-order one of these now for €3,490 directly from Hanhart.
