This timepiece was introduced in 1998 as a highly imaginative embodiment of the passion of British Masters designers for the Art Deco style. It has particularly subtle shape with curved sides and an anatomical profile. This Counter incorporates an extraordinary technical feature: a special flyback mechanism fitted on the small direct-drive hand at 6o’clock and operated by an inclined push-piece.
This technical particularity and the resolutely architectural line of the Graham Sprint-Counter have delighted celebrities who appreciate beauty and exceptional quality such as His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.
Its manual winding mechanical movement is a 19.75mm diameter and 5mm high Graham G 715 calibre. It has 21 jewels and beats at 21.600 vibrations per hour. It is also fitted with a Glucydur balance and a flat balance-spring. Incabloc shock-resistant system. Power-reserve of approximately 40 hours. The movement has “Côtes de Genève” decoration and is timed in 5 positions.
Available in 5N18 red gold, in an eminently classical version or with brilliants weighing over 1.50 carats, the Sprint Counter is cased up with a silvered or black dial. It has a convex sapphire crystal and is water-resistant to 100 feet. It has hour and minute functions and a fly-back seconds hand on the small direct-drive counter at 6 o’clock.
