Hanhart 417 ES 1954 Flyback (Custom Made)

I’ve lusted and wanted one for a while now but couldn’t decide on the right model. I love the classic all black dial but preferred the column wheel Flyback movement of the Reverse Panda model. I contacted the AD here in Australia (Define Watches) to ask if there was a model on the horizon that combined the two. The owner Peter replied that, funny enough, he had been asked the exact same question the day before by one of his regular customers! And since he had a great relationship with the Hanhart CEO, he had already asked and they were going to specially make a custom modified version of the 1954 with the Flyback movement for Define Watches. Suffice to say I pounced on it like a hungry kid at an all you can eat KFC buffet!!!

Well good things come to those who wait… it finally arrived today and boy was it worth the wait! Absolutely enamored and over the moon with it.

This custom version is even more accurate to the original ‘54 version as the original had the Flyback feature.

Oofty, the honeymoon period for this one is gonna go for a loooong while!

Nice one!

Goes to show - regularly contact with your local dealers pays off.

Wonder if it's too much to ask for them to either engrave the caseback or supply a certificate that attests to how special your watch will be?

I literally just paid for a Longines Heritage Skin Diver a few hours ago, otherwise I mighta been tempted to 'pile on'!

Congrats Kaeng!

Thank you my friend. 🙏🏽

Nah, I kinda like that no one will know its specialness except for me. My little secret I wear on my wrist just for me. 😉🤘🏽

Me too… so glad I was able to pull the trigger on it. And to get the combination I wanted too! Ultra grateful.

I have the Pioneer 417ES 1954 39mm. I love it.

I also enjoy my Preventor9.

Love the 417 ES, this just makes it a bit more special.

We are also very lucky to have Peter up there in Noosa, such a big fan of Sinn, and his range!

Absolutely! Always loved Sinn too! Next time I’m up in Noosa, I’ll definitely be visiting Peter and checking out his whole range in person. 🤘🏽💥🤘🏽

Nope, the Bund Strap comes stock! 👍

Thank you! Totally right time, right place situation! Goes to show what a great AD can do when he cultivates great relationships with his brands (and customers)! 🤜🏼💥🤛🏼

Awesome story. I was thinking of writing them to see if they could do that to my Red Lion. I was hoping they could put 'flyback' on the dial as well but that may be asking too much. Did you inquire about a dial update as well?

No I intentionally didn’t. Plus I think it was going to be too hard to achieve. I actually preferred the two line of text (shockproof & antimagnetic) without Flyback as it’s more accurate to the original dial in ‘54! 🤘🏽😎🤘🏽
