Hands-On – Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd.
As part of their Basel World 2017 series, Graham introduced four limited-edition versions of the Chronofighter to get its impatient nostalgia, riveted dials and cool cotton / denim belts out of aged steel. Meet Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Company
Bold, possibly scary, Chronofighter is inspired by historical military stopwatches. Its lever allows to start / stop the chronograph without error, and the thumb is the fastest of all fingers, even with heavy aviator gloves. Last year, Graham introduced a reduced version of the model’s tuning at its 15th anniversary. Reduced to 44 mm in diameter – Start / stop trigger, onion crown and mushroom reset buttons were elegantly redesigned to reconnect the watch to more traditional pilot attributes.Replica Tag Heuer Monaco CAL2110.BA0781 watch
This year, Graham presented four limited edition designs that combine both modernity and vintage style (somehow nostalgic for the 1940s). Their 44mm case is made of steel, with gunmetal finish for cool years. All four watches are worn on canvas, including a blue denim. “Rivet” dial, reminiscent of the 1930s / 1940s aircraft fuselage, the use of radial gradient color as the series features and inspiration.
Chronofighter Vintage uses the G1747 self-winding chronograph with date display. Based on the Valjoux 7750, it operates at 4 Hz with approximately 2 days of power reserve. In addition to the “green” version (reference 2CVAV.B17A), the sapphire case can be seen outside of the Royal Air Force Halifax aircraft on the back of the case.luxury watches replica

Brave, Bold, with Vintage Style – Graham Timing Vintage Greenwich Mean Time
Graham Chronofighter Retro Greenwich Times proved a bold and technical approach to design that was directly inspired by historical military timepieces. On the left side of the case, the signature bar allows the wearer to easily start and stop the chronograph with the thumb (the fastest of all fingers), even if they are wearing heavy aviator gloves.Graham London Chronofighter 2OVGS.B39A Replica watch
The brand’s iconic model celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2016, and still does not comply in many ways. Its large 47 mm case features a unique (slightly) extremely luxurious timing rod for instant identification. The early success of Chronofighter led to the unveiling of the first Chronofighter GMT in 2004/2005 years later. 2016 Chronofighter’s “Vintage” series debuted, and now Graham is adding another model to the lineup of regular guests like you and me.
Like the Chronofighter “Vintage” introduced last year, GMT Vintage shrinks to 44mm, making it more restrained and wear-resistant than the previous ones, of course. It has an elegant redesigned boot – stop triggering a collection of other “retro” models, knurled onion crowns and mushroom shaped reset pushers, with subtle design elements that all work together to truly re-run the classic pilot’s watch design. Its one-way rotating GMT baffle is made of ceramic with 24 positions.
Slightly dome-shaped sapphire crystal highlights the watch’s personality. Doublex Klaas dial for excellent readability. Sun-facing finishes with radial gradients capture a wide range of hues and are truly spectacular. It has a different color – green, brown, black or blue dial, with luminous numbers and indicators and cool red tones.Hublot Mp 02 Key of Time 902.NX.1179.RX replica watch
Chronofighter Vintage GMT movement is G1733, which is an automatic chronograph movement, with a large date and second time zone. This dependable work horse is a modified Valjoux 7750 with a working frequency of 4Hz and a power reserve of about 2 days. Its traditional finishes (Geneva stripes, blue screws) are visible on the back of the watch.
Straight calfskin leather strap and dial color coordinated, and with gray white hand-sewn, to provide you the finishing touch. It is closed with a steel pin buckle.
Graham Timing Retro GMT is a unique, stylish stopwatch. Naturally, its unconventional design may not fit everyone’s taste. I’ve always been a fan of this model and I believe this calm ‘Vintage’ version is a smart evolution. These are better dressed and more elegant while still retaining the obvious characteristics of their nostalgic siblings. The chronograph function is still impressive, while protecting the crown. Greenwich Mean Time is a perfect complement to the legibility of large date dials. Last but not least, its price is lower than previous Chronofighter GMTs and may give you the necessary excuse to pull the trigger.
