Graham celebrated its 25th anniversary with a vintage-style signature watch.
The brand is named after the famous British watchmaker Georges Graham (Georges Graham) and was founded in 1995 by Eric Loth. To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the brand released a limited edition Chronofighter. Inspired by the World War II bomb timer, this non-traditional chronograph is eye-catching with its unique quick lever, which can start/stop the chronograph even with a gloved hand. For this, Graham chose Vintage Chronofighter, which has a redesigned start/stop trigger, onion crown and mushroom reset button to reconnect the roots of the model and more traditional pilot attributes.
Graham Chronofighter was born in the early 2000s, inspired by military chronographs, and completely different from typical luxury watches. Even today, this bold, radical design is still an eye-catching aspiration on the wrist and a starter of a fascinating conversation. Chronofighter Vintage 25th Anniversary is a faithful copy of the original model from 2001.
It has a similar matte black dial with a dual composite layout and a register with snails-a small second at 3 o’clock and a 30-minute register at 9 o’clock. With lime green Super-LumiNova coated hour markers, numerals and hands, it provides excellent readability. The main difference is the size of the watch. The steel case is 44 mm, while the original 2001 Chronofighter was 43 mm. The size at the time was really impressive.
The back of this Graham Chronofighter Vintage 25th Anniversary Watch is engraved with a limited edition number and 25th anniversary logo. The sapphire crystal commends the self-winding movement G1722 chronograph, a reliable workhorse movement based on Valjoux 7750. It operates 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a 48-hour power reserve when fully wound. Its accuracy has been certified by COSC (Swiss Astronomical Clock Testing Agency). It has a traditional finish with Geneva stripes and blue screws.

Hands-on Graham Chronofighter ultralight carbon tourbillon watch, now in a carbon fiber case
The limited edition black carbon commemorates the tenth anniversary of the Graham chronograph/tourbillon combination.
Graham celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Tourbillograph, a Chronofighter case with a chronograph/tourbillon combination mounted on the cornerstone of the brand. With its amazing 47mm size, combined with a carbon fiber case, it greatly reduces the weight of the case. Limited to 10 pieces, the ultralight carbon tourbillon dial is in black and gold.
Black carbon box
The 10th anniversary edition of the tourbillon watch belongs to the carbon fiber case of Graham’s Chronofighter Superlight series. Nevertheless, the distinctive feature of Chronofighter is still the best-selling model of the brand, which is located on the timing trigger lever on the left side of the case.
The case, trigger, bezel, tourbillon cage, dial and clasp are all made of ultra-light black carbon composite materials, using materials related to motor sports. For a watch with a diameter of 47mm, the use of carbon means that the total weight is less than 100g. The unique cross pattern of carbon fiber can be seen on the bezel, lever and dial. A little rubber was added to the mix, and the reset timer button was covered with black rubber decorated with Clous de Paris to enhance the grip. The dial and the back cover are equipped with domed sapphire crystals, which are waterproof and durable, and can withstand shocks up to 100 meters.best fake watches
Traditional complications on board
The combination of a sports chronograph and a traditional tourbillon escapement is not new. Many brands, such as Audemars Piguet, TAG Heuer, Zenith, etc., have adopted this combination. Graham’s tourbillon tourbillon displays the tourbillon with a very large aperture between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock, and its structure is protected by two patents. The offset structure of the tourbillon and the open cage (weighing only 0.485 grams) provide a clear view of the other wheels of the movement, which intersect the orbital plane of the escapement. The two bridges in the flywheel/small second hand have a curved shape to enhance rigidity and are “borrowed” from the 18th century British chronometer. The design idea of the 18k rose gold watch bridge is to give the tourbillon a stronger appearance to maintain the sporty characteristics of the watch.
The 30-minute chronograph occupies a more conventional position at 9 o’clock and has a gold frame like a tourbillon hole with an external small second hand. These numbers have the prominent Arabic numeral 12, and the inside of the golden hour and minute hands are painted with white Super-LumiNova. The central seconds hand is painted white.
Automatic CHRONOFIABLE® certified movement
The Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Tourbillon watch is equipped with an automatic chronograph and tourbillon movement. The movement has a frequency of 28,800vph and a power reserve of 48 hours. The movement is protected by Incabloc shock absorbers. The tourbillon cage has only 48 parts, some of which are made of 18k pure gold to maintain stability. The gold and black color of the dial is easy to do with its black gold hollow rotor and 18k solid gold pendulum. The movement is finished with pearl cotton, Geneva stripes and manual chamfering and polishing edges. The movement also has Chronofiable® certification (Like Richard Mille’s watches, it withstands great shocks. Unlike the COSC certification that tests the accuracy of price replica watches,
