Hans Noll created and founded Hanowa in Bienne, Switzerland in 1963 and his brand soon earned an enviable reputation for exceptional watchmaking. By 1990, Hanowa had firmly established its signature style of robust sport watches at accessible prices. The cognomen “Swiss Military” Hanowa was later adopted to underscore the virtuesthat this brand shares with Switzerland’s armed forces: robustness, endurance, high precision, and the ability to function reliably under extreme conditions.
Officially licensed by the Swiss Confederation, Swiss Military Hanowa is recognised around the world for its strong expertise in the genres of sport, performance and lifestyle watches. High-quality materials and a stylish vocabulary of diverse colours and shapes make these timepieces uniquely special and ideally suited for individualistic, quality-conscious lifestyles. The Swiss cross logo bears witness to the exacting standards of quality upheld by Swiss Military Hanowa.
Swiss Military Hanowa has added seven new versions to the Crusader Chrono line. Stainless steel cases and metal bracelets distinguish three of these newcomers; the other four combine stainless steel cases and genuine leather straps with contrasting white stitching. Each case is crafted from stainless steel, measures 43mm in diameter, and is equipped with a precise Swiss quartz chronograph calibre.
Watchbazar loves the tidily arranged dial with partially luminous hands and the indices which deliver superior legibility under all lighting conditions.
A date display occupies a window at “4 o’clock”, while clou de Paris embellishment lends a decorative touch to the centre of the face. A tachymeter scale along the bezel adds even greater functionality to this multi-talented chronograph.
