Footnotes

  • The Hanhardt chronograph wristwatch could be privately purchased by members of the Heer and Luftwaffe and was ordered in limited numbers by the Kriegsmarine. This version, introduced around 1940/1941 to replace the single button with the fixed bezel, has the Calibre 40 movement and rotating milled bezel. There are few remaining that bear the 'M' for Kriegsmarine on the reverse as these were relatively early orders by the German military.
