Originally launched in 2002, this automatic chronograph timepiece proudly bears the prestigious name of this great British motor racing circuit. Although contemporary chronographs with fly-back functions are all dedicated to air navigation, this particular technical solution also has a practical application in the motor racing world.
The Graham Silverstone Chronograph was originally designed for motor racing lovers. It is fitted with several extraordinary complications. An automatic winding chronograph with a fly-back function facilitates the measurement of successive short periods, such as lap times. It also enables the wearer to start a new time measurement when the line is crossed by simply pressing the push-piece located at the four o’clock position.
The second time-zone with 24 hours indication allows the user to experience live the time of the motor racing competition season across the world. The big date aperture with clearly visible double discs at 6 o’clock and the highly contrasted hands guarantee that the wearer can read the time and the date faster, making this operation safer for drivers in action.
The movement of the Silverstone Chronograph represents yet another technical exploit by Graham. It is a mechanical movement with automatic winding and a 42 hours power-reserve. It has 28 jewels. Time adjustment, setting the GMT 24 hours second time-zone and the big date with double discs are all effected solely with the crown.
It is available in 5N18 red gold with silvered dial and features “baignoire” indexes with luminescent inlays. The Silverstone chronograph is also available in steel with a silver-plated, blue or black dial featuring “baignoire” indexes and luminescent inlays.
It is worn on a solid steel bracelet or a leather strap. Its case, water-resistant to 160 feet case, and design allying elegance and efficiency to typically British charm, endow it with a distinctive character which will appeal to lovers of exceptional mechanical performance.
