The Graham Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art Limited Edition Watch Review
Friday - 14 July 2017
Limited to 100 pieces each, Graham release four exclusive models that explore the 1940s era of the playful pin up girl. Joining the Chronofighter Vintage series, Sally, Lilly, Nina and Anna feature on the dial to echo the glamorous girls who were famously applied to the 1940s military planes to increase morale. Graham transport us back to the fun pop art era with the creative Nose Art collection.
The cheeky, flirty pin up girls are positioned to the right of the dial dressed in military uniform with three of them saluting and resting their left arm on the 4 o’clock marking; an artwork that brings the dial to life. Each takes on a unique persona and character all wearing different costumes and colours. Their names are beautifully written above the date and day display at 9 o’clock in their signature shade. The animated ladies become mascots of precision timekeeping becoming a symbol of hope and freedom.
Although admittedly a little distracting, the unique collection remains easy to read and certainly demands attention on the wrist. The beautiful girls are positioned with consideration of the indices to avoid obstructing the art of telling time. The illustrations are carefully executed to portray each character’s personality.
Dressed in pink and white, Sally sits on the black sunbrushed dial and is fastened with a hand-sewn black calf leather strap; Anna’s khaki green army uniform is complimented by the matching green leather strap; Nina wears yellow and white to contrast against the striking blue dial and strap; and finally, Lilly echoes the blue and white colour combination with her cute sailor dress.
Graham teases: ‘Will Sally or Anna take your time into their hands? What about a date with Lilly? Or will Nina be the one to keep you on track?’
