The latest timepiece in the iconic Graham Chronofighter collection is the Graham Chronofighter Vintage GMT which integrates a second time zone in a design that takes inspirations from different eras elegantly in its stride. Parented by the series launched at the dawn of the new millennium, this model combines sophisticated contemporary horology with visible vintage flashbacks.
It whisks the imagination on time travel trips taking in nostalgic plane adventures, fueled by whispers of the worlds of independent baby boomers and the liberated Beat Generation. The family’s trademark stop-start trigger is reliably ready for action, wherever, whenever.
A G1733 automatic chronograph movement makes the two worlds of this Swiss made timepiece go round – simultaneously. The uni-directional rotation bezel, decorated with a lateral helical toothing features 24 positions.
A large double-disk date at 12 o’clock also dressed up the dial. All are travel essentials in modern timekeeping terms. A box-lock mechanism adds an appealing, slow, tick-tock sound to the ceramic bezel’s motion. Underlining the statement of technical complexity is the construction of the trigger, combining a co-axial crown and push button. An eye for detail also finds harmonious visible expression.
Dark sun brushed dials with a radial gradient capture a wide range of shades to show off the Superluminova markings, snailed counters with a rhodiated ring. The instrument character of the overall look is signed off by a see-through case back to reveal the movement’s most intimate secrets. This watch is designed for real and aspiring globetrotters everywhere, whether they get their kicks on Route 66 or from an aviation fix.
