Graham Chronofighter Oversize Watch Review
Thursday - 20 June 2013
In 2012 Graham launched a 'new generation' of its Chronofighter Oversize - a completely re-engineered design aimed at "modern explorers and adventurers".
The watch is lightweight and durable, with a 47 mm steel with black PVD case and a black ceramic bezel. It has a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides, a smoked sapphire case back, and a start and stop lever made with a unique piece of carbon to give the watch "more stiffness and enhanced usability".
The Graham Chronofighter Oversize is powered by the calibre G1747 automatic chronograph movement, with Incabloc shock absorber and 48 hours power reserve. The watch has a calculated telemeter scale, allowing the wearer to measure distances using the speed of sound. The chronograph is started when a visible event (such as lightning) occurs, and stopped as the sound (such as thunder) is heard. The distance in kilometres can then be measured on the scale rim of the dial.
Two new versions of the Chronofighter Oversize have now been revealed. The first has a black dial, with yellow SuperLumiNova hands and numerals, and green SuperLumiNova chrono hand, counters' hands and scales. It comes with a 'bomber jacket' brown leather strap.
The second has a blue dial with white hands, numerals and indexes, in a new generation of SuperLumiNova coating that gives a blue tint. It has a blue techno-fabric strap.
