  • Catalogue Essay

    Established in Gütenbach in the black forest in Germany since 1882, Hanhart was famous for its chronographs and timing equipments. Amongst its collection, the company made gauges for racing teams. They were available in four versions, the two-stop, the Duostop (like the present one), the Tristop and the Addistop. The peculiarity of the Duostops was the system of pushers, which controlled the timer.
    The present Duostop is part of a very rare production run made for the Ferrari racing team in the late 1950s and early 1960s. They could be used as handheld timers, mounted on the dashboard, or
    attached to a clipboard along with timing sheets.
    These two timers are displayed in a metal case in a pale green wrinkle finish with Ferrari Duostop underneath the Hanhart signature. The left -side dial is a 60-minute chronograph with a 30-minute counter when the one on the right side displays the time along with a chronograph and another 30-minute counter. Both chronograph can run separately.
    This very exciting timer is an extremely rare opportunity to own a piece of Ferrari history!
