H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER – collection (Hamburg Ambassador)

Case made from stabilized ships propellers bronze

A classics anniversary – the H2 HAMBURG BORTSCHAFTER celebrates its 10th jubilee.

In the summer of 2008 we revealed this beautiful watch, made from non-aging ships propellers bronze, to the public for the very first time. The re-discovery of this ancient, expressive alloy, its warm colours and its robust surface have been associated with our handmade watches ever since. Highly praised by our customers and experts alike, this classical chronometer is not only an ambassador to fine Hanseatic watchmaking on many continents but also on the seven seas.

In the past two years the H2 HAMBURG  BOTSCHAFTER got two additional family members: The H2 HAMBURG  BOTSCHAFTER SPORT and the H2 HAMBURG  BOTSCHAFTER Automatic.

Something special

Inside of our H2 Hamburg Botschafter works our own, handmade manufactory calibre HUW 1130 S, a mechanical manually wound movement or the HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER automatic movement. Both are refined to the highest watchmaking standards and are an embodiment of reliability, precision and longevity. Which is quite appropriate since the H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER is a watch for a lifetime, technically and aesthetically.

We follow those requirements consequently with the properties and form of all its components. The H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER, unfettered by trends or cheap showmanship, confirms all these demands. Despite their seeming simplicity, these watches radiate artistic depth and a very special quality.

Exceptional

We look at our watch many times a day, consciously and unconsciously. How nice it is when it surprises us again and again through fascinating accents and details that we discover through changing light and new viewing angles. The H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER is finely sculptured with a great variety of these details. It plays with arching lines where other watches are flat and two-dimensional.

Dial, hands and the crystal are creating a harmonic unity. We position the deep blue watch hands in perfect adjustment to the curve of the sapphire crystal. With just a 0.1mm gap between the glass and the watch hands it creates perfect clarity and transparency unfettered by shadows and reflection.

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.

You may choose between two different bronze-shades of colour: The more reddish 5N or the more yellow 4N.

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 KLASSIK

Manually wound manufactory movement HUW 1130 S

Case colour 4N

Balanced. At first sight you’ll notice the harmonic interplay between the warm colours. The warm bronze colour of the case surrounds the discreet, crème coloured watch face with its clear chronometer print and the distinct red 12. The beautiful, finely crafted and thermally blued hands create a contrast which allows for easy and pleasant readability.

Case colour 5N

Precision in maratime tradition. The creme-coloured satined chronometer dial with its distinct “red 12” and its small seconds indication at six o´clock are a palpable reference to the great and historic ships chronometers.

Case colour 5N

Perfect readability. The thermally blued hands follow the slightly domed silver-coated dial and provide an exact readability. Manufactured, bent and polished by hand the delicate steel changes to a cornflower-blue over a flame – Hentschel hands are among the finest of their kind.

Case colour 5N

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 SPORT

Case colour 4N

Manually wound manufactory movement HUW 1130 S

Case colour 5N

A maratime timepiece. The engraved bezel gives the H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER SPORT its technical appearance and enlarges the diameter of our classic to 40mm. It is bolted down with four blued screws and highlights the domed dial with its “red 12” nicely.

Case colour 5N

Perfect ergonomics. Together with the slightly domed sapphire crystal the H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER looks even more plane and three-dimensional. The robust case is on 8mm thick and by this only half the thickness of other sports watches. Its harmonic proportion guarantee for an exceptional wearing comfort. The watch back is bolted down by six screws but the case retains its low profile and slips easily under your cuff. That the H2-case is shock proof and waterresistant goes without saying.

Model: H2 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER Automatic

Gehäuse-Farbton 4N

Our classic with central seconds indication and self winding movement

Case colour 5N

Vivid serenity. 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.

Case colour 5N

Harmonious. 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.

Case colour 5N

HENTSCHEL HAMBURG automatic movement

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 HAMBURG BOTSCHAFTER 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.
