HEMEL Mechanical Chronograph Watch with Dual-Time Bezel and DD Sapphire Crystal #HF15IV

This mechanical (hand winding) HEMEL chronograph watch has a GMT bezel that allows you to track two 12-hour time zones. The bezel insert is scratch resistant ceramic and it has luminous markings for reading in the dark. The Ivory dial is fully luminous and treated with SuperLuminova C3 for an amazing bright glow-in-the-dark presentation on your wrist.

The flat sapphire crystal provides clear view of dial while at the same time providing scratch resistance so your watch stays looking new. The watch features a running seconds sub-dial at 9:00 and a 30-minute stopwatch function at 3:00 on the dial. The elapsed seconds hand is engaged when you use the stopwatch function.

This 316L surgical grade stainless steel case is 42mm in diameter making it very wearable for just about anyone. Powering the watch is a Seagull ST1901, 23-jewel hand wound chronograph movement with 21,600 bph and a swan-neck regulator. Power reserve, fully wound is 45 hours. A steel retainer holds the movement in the case. The beautiful movement is visible via an exhibition-window caseback..

C3 SuperLuminova is used on the hands and hour makers for reading time in the dark. C3 glows with a bright greenish hue when charged by a strong light. A honey brown strap is included that features quick change pins at the lugs. Lug width is 20mm. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters or 330 feet.

    1st Hemel, will not be my last!

    Posted by Craig on Mar 7th 2021

    Marc and others have done a great job of providing of explaining the virtues of this watch, so I do not believe I have much value to add on that front, so I will just add that the fit and finish of these watches are exceptional for the price-point. I have one other ST19 movement-based chrono. I am guessing that Hemel must regulate their watches as tis watch consistently holds at about +5 seconds on the timegrapher. There are two things I want to share with you. One is that Long Island did a great job as always of fulfilling my order, and it arrived very quickly. The other is about Helmel’s customer service. After having the watch for a short period, I needed some minor warranty work performed. I contacted Helmel, and they quickly directed me to their service shop. I dropped off the watch at a UPS facility on a Monday, and I had my repaired watch back on Friday, in the same week.
