Graham Chronofighter 1695 Watch Review
Tuesday - 04 September 2012
Inspired by the 1930s, Graham describes the timepiece as "a graceful, unique chronograph which brings its fundamental watch making developments and British touch of style together."
The Chronofighter 1695 has a pink gold case (18K) measuring 42 mm. The case back is hand-engraved with the Greenwich Royal Observatory, in tribute to the early life of George Graham, and a sapphire aperture displays the balance wheel and the escapement.
The timepiece is equipped with calibre G1745 automatic chronograph movement, and it comes with a brown croco strap. The design takes inspiration from 1930s style, with its silver-white domed dial, and a start/stop lever placed at the left side of the case for easy activation. The lever was a 1930s invention, originally used in aviation and early car racing.
Other features include Incabloc shock absorber, 48 hours power reserve and domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides. There is a date display at 3 o'clock and it is water resistant to 50 metres.
The new Graham Chronofighter is also available in steel with a chemical-engraved case back, and a variety of different dial versions.
