Graham: Chronofighter Vintage19 July 2016
Turning the clock back 15 years is a rich revelation. Hip guys may have been chilling to Daft Punk’s “One More Time”, ogling the very first iPods, or sharing popcorn with Gandalf at the first “Lord of the Rings” movie. But those really in the know would have been securing one of the first Graham Chronofighter watches. The rest is history as the saying goes, but Graham is keeping the vintage vibe alive to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of its successful Chronofighter with four new additions to the iconic series. With their signature trigger on the left-hand side of the case, these Swiss made timepieces, integrating quirky British roots, are right on target to propel nostalgia confidently into the future.
The bold trigger that starts and stops the chronograph acts as a double agent, simultaneously protecting the crown. The steel case comes in 44mm diameter, and encloses four different dial colors. The chronograph functionality consists of two easily legible counters, one to track seconds and the other to count 30-minute periods.
Elements such as fine stitching on the leather strap and fire-red tips on the second hands punctuate the extrovert look. These watches are the Graham flagships and fully in command of the current vintage voyage.
