Throw­back Trio

THE FU­TURE TAKES THE PAST TENSE WITH TH­ESE NEW CHRONOFIGHTER VIN­TAGE AD­DI­TIONS

Top Gear (Malaysia) - - Watch List -

Swiss-based his­toric Bri­tish watch­mak­ers Gra­ham wel­comes three new ad­di­tions into its ever-ex­pand­ing and sig­na­ture Chronofighter Vin­tage se­ries.

This lat­est “re­veal” con­sists of three ver­sions of a time­piece with a plot in­spired by 1940s aviation his­tory. All three proudly com­bine the iconic de­sign, char­ac­terised by its sig­na­ture trig­ger, with vin­tage colours. With th­ese, mak­ers Gra­ham are tout­ing them as the dis­tin­guished time­pieces that f ly the f lag for mind­ful mas­culin­ity.

The in­spi­ra­tion of yes­ter­year mil­i­tary pi­lots is the heart and soul of the Gra­ham

Chronofighter Vin­tage. Po­si­tioned promi­nently on the left of the 44 mm case is the se­ries’s sig­na­ture thum­bac­tu­ated trig­ger that whisks the imag­i­na­tions of con­tem­po­rary tough guys to an era and space where leather f ly­ing jack­ets and ana­logue cock­pits ruled the skies.

Chrono­graph ac­ti­va­tion has never felt this way be­fore. The chrono­graph functionality com­prises two eas­ily leg­i­ble coun­ters, one to trace sec­onds and the other to count

30-minute pe­ri­ods. The pas­sage of hours, min­utes and sec­onds, as well as days, holds the at­ten­tion of the main dial.

Gra­ham’s new ‘re­cruits’ take in sil­ver, khaki and black dial colour op­tions, teamed with hand-sewn calf leather straps in camel, dark brown or black choices to match. Their en­gine is a G1747 au­to­matic chrono­graph move­ment with an In­ca­bloc shock ab­sorber, all en­tirely vis­i­ble through the case back whilst also con­tain­ing a power re­serve of 48 hours.

Ad­di­tion­ally, all Gra­ham Chronofighter watches boast wa­ter re­sis­tant up to 10 bar (100 me­tres), and are equipped with a domed sap­phire crys­tal with anti-ref lec­tive coat­ing. Hav­ing friends in high places just took on a whole new mean­ing, with th­ese trio ready to take their wear­ers up the new heights in­deed.
