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