WatchProSite' 20th Anniversary watch: Hentschel H1 Chronometer for WatchProSite!


Hi my friends,

We are delighted to announce that we managed to make a watch on order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our beloved site in collaboration with Hentschel, the HENTSCHEL H1 CHRONOMETER Limited and Exclusive Edition for WatchProSite  (20 pieces). Here enclosed some photos of the prototype which has been made and here after the main characteristics :

-         Case and dial :

o    Steel case 5 ATM water resistant diam 39,5 mm, 8 mm high. 


o    Special marking on the case back for the 20th Anniversary of WPS with a « 1 of 20 » mention (no individual numbering for avoiding arguments and disputes)

o    White laquered dial with enamel rendering

o    Deep blue writings (for the signature, numerals, minute track, small second sub counter…) except 12 in red, which also has a deep hue.

o    Blued steel leaf hands

o    Domed, double anti reflective coated sapphire crystal. The high-grade sapphire crystal is shock-proof and scratch resistant




  -         Movement :

o    Manually wound certified chronometer, tested for 1,000 hours and adjusted to six positions – based on the strict test criteria of the Deutsche Seewarte von 1877 (German Naval Institute). It is not " COSCED ". The tolerance is -4 / +6 seconds per day. If the watch runs over this tolearance, Hentschel corrects this, free of charge

o    New in house HUW 1130 Premium manufactory movement with côtes de Genève and screwed-on golden chatons, swan neck regulator

o    Power reserve approx. 37 hours

none none

-      Strap: In order to avoid any kind of issue with some borders or some countries, it had been decided that the watch will be available with two straps, at your choice: A light tan calf, or a navy blue one.




-         Price and payment terms :

o    This Limited and Exclusive Edition for WPS is proposed at the special price of 5 800 € ( VAT NOT INCLUDED) to the WPS members, insurance & shipping fees coming on top depending on destination.

o    The watches will be shipped directly by Hentschel ; VAT / import taxes & duties will be collected by FedEx or DHL on top of the above mentioned price (obviously will vary depending on country of destination)

o    30% deposit will have to be wired by each directly to Hentschel at the time of confirmation ; the balance 70% with insurance & shipping fees will have to be paid in full prior to shipping

o    In case of more reservations than available pieces, the watches will be officially reserved only when the 30% deposit will be received by Hentschel on their bank account

o    Estimated delivery time : end of 2021

To be totally transparent, the first 20 to speak will be the first 20 to be served. You just have to answer that you are in, here, or / and to pm Mike H or myself.

Many thanks Nico for the public annoucement of this great project we are working on since quite a while Looking forward to your feedbacks. Beware of the limited quantity available, 10 out of the 20 are already pre reserved so actually only 10 are available now. Do not hesitate if you have questions here or by pm to Nico or myself Cheers, Mike

Francois-Paul Friday is here with a testament to cronometry....

FINALLY the Chronometre Souverain is back on my wrist as it has returned from service. A while back, I was was unfortunate at dropped the watch on the floor. I had changed straps but not made completely sure the pin was fastened properly. So here is a word of caution.
