Graham


Now here’s a little beauty that harkens back to the days of the pocket watch and so many other wonderful things that our new throw-away iGeneration no longer appreciates. A solid .925 Sterling Silver watch case, a true gentlemen’s timepiece from Graham with their trademark trigger crafted in a less modern style to give the watch plenty of character, and a worthy homage to George Graham of the company’s namesake.

“GRAHAM made its new Chronofighter 1695 a timeless watch making instrument. An automatic 42 mm chronograph powered by a sophisticated Swiss movement. The minutes counter is placed at 6 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock, a distinctive GRAHAM disposition. In keeping with Gentlemen’s taste for style, we have also chosen to crown the watch with a silver (925) case. The silver (925) case back is elaborately hand-engraved with the Greenwich Royal Observatory as a tribute to the early life of George Graham, the official watchmaker of this important British Institution. The case back also features a sapphire aperture on the balance wheel and the escapement. An homage to “Honest George”, the father of the chronograph and creator of simplified escapements which are the ancestor of the Swiss modern escapement. Elegant and distinctive.”

Case: 42 mm silver (.925)
Movement: calibre G1745, automatic chronograph, 25 jewels, 28’800 A/h (4Hz), Incabloc shock absorber, 48 hours power reserve,

Graham has released a brand new Chronofighter with a case made from carbon nanotube speckled composite, making the entire watch weight less than 100 grams. This is an impressive feat, considering how big a Chronofighter Oversize actually is! They’re 47mm, just so you know. With a Carbon Fiber trigger, and limited production of 200 pieces, this is a limited and special watch from our friends at Graham.

Today’s mechanical sports are impressive due to the speed and intensity of the races not forgetting high-technology. But impressive is not strong enough for the TT. TT is a breathtaking experience which never fails to impress. As a long-term timekeeper, GRAHAM brings its advanced watch making knowledge to create typical high-powered racing instruments and ensure an exciting show. The brand shows off modern watch making technology by launching the Chronofighter Oversize Superlight TT. Enhanced with a lightweight black carbon nanotube composite case, the highly shock absorbing watch weighs less than 100g. Let’s hit the road.

Beautiful motorcycles, legendary riders and a stunning limited edition watch; what a perfect combination. They started at 2, then, ten, 20, and even more today (almost 250), riding like crazy. GRAHAM wants to pay tribute to the men who risk their lives in the name of passion by taking part in the TT every year. The limited edition Chronofighter Oversize Superlight TT is a new concept watch dedicated to speed, adrenaline and advanced technology.

Steel has proven its merits but is somewhat ordinary. GRAHAM has developed a case, made of carbon nanotube speckled composite. The watch weighs less than 100 grams. The model contains motorsport design connotations, lightweight material to time with lap time functions.

The new Superlight chronograph facilitates the measurement of speed thanks to a specific tachymeter scale based on the TT circuit (37.73 miles / 60.7 km). The yellow indicator on the minutes counter is at 17 min (lap record time, 131.578 mph / 211.75 kmh established by John McGuinness). The chrono starts when the race start is given. When the red minutes hand overlaps the yellow marker, the speed can be read in an instant on the scale. The function emphasizes intuitive and immediate reading. The watch demonstrates again GRAHAM’s expertise and passion for challenge.
That’s what rebel with a cause means.

Much to my Chagrin (I’m a hockey fan, but not an LA Kings fan..), Graham Watches has teamed up with the L.A. Kings NHL Hockey Franchise to promote their latest Limited Edition watch to celebrate the L.A. Kings winning the Stanley Cup last season. However, its a cool subdued Graham Chronofighter, which is always nice to see so I’ll forgive them 😉 Its got some neat limited edition features that make it stand out has being a little bit more than just a new dial and fancy caseback including the diamond and inscription on the side.

From Graham:
“Never one to rest on their laurels, GRAHAM is off to a speedy start in 2013 as the Official Timing Partner of the Los Angeles Kings Ice Hockey team, winners of the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Championship.

The Los Angeles Kings are back and ready to play the 2012-2013 season with GRAHAM as the Official Timing Partner of the successful American ice hockey team. The Kings headed into the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs in 8th place in the Western Conférence, and fought their way to the top, playing their final winning game on their home ice, for their first championship win. To celebrate this sought-after achievement and honour their hard work, GRAHAM has developed a limited edition in the vein of its adrenaline timepieces.”
