GRAHAM Chronofighter 1695

Anglo – Swiss luxury watch brand GRAHAM unveils their new Chronofighter 1695, a graceful unique chronograph which brings its fundamental watch making developments and British touch of style together. Inspired from the 1930’s, an era regarded as one of the most happening times in the history of technology, the Chronofighter 1695 is a timeless instrument designed for gentlemen.

The automatic 42 mm chronograph is powered by a sophisticated Swiss movement. The minutes counter is placed at 6 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock, a distinctive GRAHAM disposition. In the Stainless steel model, stainless steel case back is elaborately engraved with the Greenwich Royal Observatory as a tribute to the early life of George Graham, the official watchmaker of this important British Institution.

The new Chronofighter 1695 model is also available in 18K pink gold variation and its 18K pink gold case back is also engraved with the Greenwich Royal Observatory. The case back also features a sapphire aperture on the balance wheel and the escapement.

The thirties saw a proliferation of new technologies in all domains. But the most conclusive is certainly the lever which was originally used in aviation and early car racing. The renowned GRAHAM start and stop system is naturally present on the left side of the case to be activated by the thumb. The black dial/silver dial is finely worked and is domed to recall the 30s style.
