H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER – collection (Hamburg Ambassador)

Case made from stabilized ships propellers bronze

The distinguishing element of all H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER models is the extraordinary but suitable case: It is made from solid stabilized ships propellers bronze, this extremely durable  vintage alloy that still drives the big ships over the oceans. Because of its warm and delicate luster it feels like an all time favourite right from the start.

The creme-coloured brushed dial with the prominent “red 12” is a reminiscence of the great, historic ships chronometers. The slightly domed chronometer dial goes together nicely with the arced shape of the thermaly blued hands. Cut and shaped by hand the wafer-thin steel changes its colour over a flame into a deep and shiny blue. The hands of HENTSCHEL watches are among the finest of of its kind.

Bronze – a simply wonderful material for watches

In contrary to solid gold cases the surface of the bronze is very hard and more scratchresistant. We like to put emphasis on the necesity that a bronze watch case has a permanent non-aging surface and is resistant to discolouring and corrosion. Our watch cases are made from a special ships propellers alloy that is used in Hamburg in shipbuilding for over 100 years.

We are the sole manufacturer that makes bronze watches which do not oxidize, tarnish or discolour. We have put over ten years of research and developent into this unique feature.  The German watch magazine “ARMBANDUHRENMAGAZIN” writes about our bronze watches: „Other makers don´t seem to have mastered this technology and refer proudly to the individuality which their watches acquire through the aging process and the discolouring that comes with time.“

Model: H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER CLASSIC

Manually wound manufactory movement HUW 1130 S

hentschel_uhren_051016_087

Manufactury movement HUW 1130 S

The H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER is a true manufactory watch
As of now with our inhouse caliber HUW 1130 S

On the basis of our long time “workhorse” the AS 1130 we have developed our second movement. The bridges have been newly constructed and retain the aesthetics of the pocket watch movements of the early 2oth. century.  All components have been improved with an emphasis on the longevity of the wheeltrain and balance system. It combines robustness with precision and is handmade in Hamburg. HENTSCHEL HAMBURG watches set a new standard in durability: In the Sylt scientific marine research station of the renowned “Alfred-Wegener-Institut für Polar- und Meeresforschung”  the Hamburg Botschafter was subjected to severe endurance tests, was exposed to sun, salt, shock and other ardous trials, resisted seeawater and high pressure and temperature fluctuation without missing a beat. A chronometer for the high seas – even if you´re landlocked!

Model: H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER Automatic

Our classic with central seconds indication and self winding movement

hentschel_uhren_051016_106

HENTSCHEL HAMBURG automatic movement

The long blue central seconds hand with its finely contoured counterweight is the most prominent identifying feature of the H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER automatic. It bestows the watch with even more clarity and calm than the small seconds variant.

In contrast to todays fast oscillating movemements the H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER Automatic is ticking away with a harmonious 18.000 beats per hour. This makes for a steady pulse and a flowing motion of the seconds hand.

Even the looks of this automatic movement are special. During construction of the H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER Automatic we made sure that most of the movements delicate mechanism is visible for the owner.

The interaction of the tiny cogs and wheels, levers and springs of the H2 HAFENMEISTER Automatic is clearly visible through the display back. These aesthetic technical details are normally hidden with automatic movements. The special shape of the case back allows even for a sideways view into the wheeltrain, the function of the automatic winding mechanism and the escapement.
