Hands-On – Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd. (Baselworld 2017, Specs & Price)

As part of their Baselworld 2017 Collection, Graham divulges 4 restricted versions of their significant Chronofighter, determining their tense nostalgic character from matured steel case, bolted dials and cool cotton/denim ties. Meet the Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd.

Bold, conceivably scary, the Chronofighter is propelled by authentic military stopwatches. Its switch permits to begin/stop the chronograph come what may and with the thumb – the quickest, all things considered, – in any event, when wearing thick pilot gloves. A year ago, Graham presented tuned-down forms of the model on the event of its 15th commemoration. The breadth was measured down to 44mm – the beginning/stop trigger, the onion crown and the mushroom reset pusher were elegantly updated to reconnect the watch with more conventional pilot attributes.

This year, Graham presents 4 restricted versions whose plan feels both current and vintage (by one way or another nostalgic of the 1940s aircrafts) simultaneously. Their 44mm cases are made from steel whose gunmetal finish gives a cool matured look. Every one of the four watches are worn on campaign lashes, remembering one for blue denim. The “bolted” dials, suggestive of 1930s/1940s aircraft fuselage, include outspread slope colors hidden the character and motivation of the collection.

The Chronofighter Vintage is controlled by the type G1747, a programmed chronograph with day-date sign. In light of the Valjoux 7750, it is working at 4Hz with around 2 days of power reserve. It is noticeable through the sapphire case back aside from the “green” rendition (reference 2CVAV.B17A) whose case back is stepped with a RAF Halifax aircraft.

The Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd will be delivered in 4 restricted releases of 250 pieces each. For more data, visit www.graham1695.com .
