As part of their Baselworld 2017 Collection, Graham uncovers 4 restricted versions of their meaningful Chronofighter, determining their tense nostalgic character from matured steel case, bolted dials and cool cotton/denim lashes. Meet the Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd.

Bold, possibly scary, the Chronofighter is enlivened by chronicled military stopwatches. Its switch permits to begin/stop the chronograph no matter what and with the thumb – the quickest, everything being equal, – in any event, when wearing thick pilot gloves. A year ago, Graham presented tuned-down adaptations of the model on the event of its 15th commemoration. The width was measured down to 44mm – the beginning/stop trigger, the onion crown and the mushroom reset pusher were elegantly updated to reconnect the watch with more customary pilot attributes.

This year, Graham presents 4 restricted versions whose plan feels both current and vintage (some way or another nostalgic of the 1940s aircrafts) simultaneously. Their 44mm cases are made from steel whose gunmetal finish gives a cool matured look. Every one of the four watches are worn on peddle lashes, remembering one for blue denim. The “bolted” dials, suggestive of 1930s/1940s aircraft fuselage, include spiral inclination colors basic the character and motivation of the collection.

The Chronofighter Vintage is controlled by the type G1747, a programmed chronograph with day-date sign. In light of the Valjoux 7750, it is working at 4Hz with around 2 days of power reserve. It is noticeable through the sapphire case back aside from the “green” rendition (reference 2CVAV.B17A) whose case back is stepped with a RAF Halifax aircraft.

The Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd will be delivered in 4 restricted versions of 250 pieces each. For more data, visit www.graham1695.com .
