Four lovely ladies


Top Gear (Malaysia) - - Watch List -

Rewind to the 1940s and 1950s and, more likely than not, you’d come upon the dis­play of gor­geous pin-up girls hand-painted on the noses of mighty bombers and fighter air­craft of the day.

Well, you may not find it nec­es­sary to go back in time be­cause the world fa­mous ‘Bri­tish Master’ that is Gra­ham is yet again re­viv­ing that glo­ri­ous art­work from a not-so dis­tant past. The Swiss-based, his­toric Bri­tish time­piece pur­veyor just rolled out an­other se­ries of its Chronofighter Vin­tage Nose Art Limited, this time fea­tur­ing four pin-up girls, hand-painted, of course.

Called Belle, Linda, Lu­cia and Chloe, each has a dis­tinc­tive per­sona. For in­stance, Belle is pre­sented as the poster girl who cel­e­brates the eu­phoric free­dom and eman­ci­pa­tion after World War II.

Linda, mean­while, isn’t shy to hit the dance f loor, with no in­hi­bi­tions about raised hem­lines and eye­brows.

Red gui­tar in hand, Lu­cia def­i­nitely strikes a chord with nos­tal­gic souls happy to have a fla­menco sound­track for rem­i­nisc­ing.

Last but cer­tainly not least, Chloe is a study of Moulin Rouge in pink. Even if you weren’t a dar­ing war­bird pi­lot or bomber crew, you prob­a­bly wouldn’t mind hav­ing any of them on your arm, or, in this case, your wrist. Per­haps you might want all of them, be­cause each is fea­tured in­di­vid­u­ally on the di­als of the four ver­sions of the Chronofighter Vin­tage Nose Art Limited se­ries, which is a sig­na­ture col­lec­tion of Gra­ham.

In typ­i­cal Chronofighter fash­ion, the time­pieces are pow­ered by Gra­ham’s sig­na­ture au­to­matic chrono­graph G1747 move­ment with 48 hours of power re­serve.

What may set this quar­tet apart is the choice of hand-sewn, calf-leather straps in blue, black, light or dark brown. Blue and grey di­als pro­vide the can­vasses on which these ex­quis­ite and expressive pin-up beau­ties shine. As per past edi­tions, only 100 mod­els of each pin-up girl are avail­able world­wide. Yes, they are quite spe­cial.
