Graham Chronofighter Oversize Superlight TT Watch Review


Graham has launched the Chronofighter Oversize Superlight TT, a limited edition watch that pays tribute to the Isle of Man TT motorcycle race.

The 2013 TT takes place from 25th May to 7th June, with Graham providing official timekeeping at the event.

The Graham Chronofighter Oversize Superlight TT is limited to just 200 pieces, and is described by the brand as a "concept watch dedicated to speed, adrenaline and advanced technology".
The 47 mm case is made of black carbon nanotube speckled composite, a lightweight material that means the total weight of the watch is less than 100 grams.
A specific tachymeter scale based on the TT circuit (37.73 miles / 60.7 km) facilitates the measurement of speed. A yellow indicator appears on the minutes counter at 17 minutes (highlighting the lap record time 131.578 mph / 211.75 kmh set by John McGuinness). "The chrono starts when the race start is given," the brand explains. "When the red minutes hand overlaps the yellow marker, the speed can be read in an instant on the scale."

The timepiece is powered by calibre G1747 automatic chronograph movement, with Incabloc shock absorber and a power reserve of 48 hours. It has a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both faces, and a black ceramic bezel. The hands and numerals are coated with white super-luminova for improved visibility.

The Chronofighter Oversize Superlight TT has a see-through sapphire crystal case back features the Isle of Man triskelion emblem, a superlight inscription and the watch's limited edition serial number. It is water resistant to 100 metres, and comes with a black techno-fabric strap with red stitching.
