Silverstone RS Racing On A Track To Be A Hit
For many, nothing gets the adrenaline pumping like a high-speed car race. If you’re a true petrolhead, the name Silverstone would mean everything to you – this legendary British motor-racing track is, after all, the birthplace of the fastest and most technically avantgarde racing event in the world – Formula One. Being Swiss in nature yet British in spirit, Graham has a unique interest in the auto-racing arena, so when it dedicates a watch collection to this thrilling sport, it made sure to combine Graham-style racing spirit with fine precision and attention to details.
The latest addition to Graham’s Silverstone collection is the Silverstone RS Racing, introduced in a trio of exuberant colour tones ranging from green spiked with orange to white, grey, and blue with red accents. But the colours are not merely design elements; colours have many roles to play in auto racing, distinguishing between teams being just one of the many. The dials recall car dashboards and the straps are inspired by tyre treads, but more creativity can be seen in the running seconds subdial, which is shaped like a brake disc, and the discreet checkerboard pattern of the dial. A tachymetric scale runs around the bezel, reinforcing the watch’s sporty persona, and for the first time, Graham threw in a day-date aperture at three o’clock. Finally, a composite ring with subtle touches of colour under the bezel gives the dial a threedimensional effect.
