TachyTele is the contraction of two words: tachymeter and telemeter. A tachymeter can be used to determine speeds and a telemeter can be used to measure distances.The Hanhart TachyTele has a tachymeter scale in the centre of the dial and a telemeter scale on the outer edges of it. This model was introduced in 1939 and our example dates back to the '40s. It runs on the historic caliber 42; a very reliable and precise movement. Thanks to its functions and accuracy it became very popular with pilots and other professionals. The case of this stunning piece of history measures 41 mm in diameter, has fixed lugs and is water- and shockproof. A very cool feature are the big crown and pushers, which was very useful for professional pilots who often wore gloves.
