The Hanhart reference 417 is quite a rare timepiece - it is estimated that only about 500 were produced in total. They were made in stainless steel (reference 417ES) or in chromed brass (reference 417) such as this watch. A small number of the model was fitted with white dials and intended for the medical service. Steve McQueen wore this Hanhart model as fighter pilot Captain Rickson in the World War II movie "The War Lover" - although in reality the model was only launched after the war. However, Steve McQueen also often wore the watch when riding his motorbike.
