Unveiled at Basel 2017, the new GRAHAM CHRONOFIGHTER VINTAGE AIRCRAFT Ltd series is comprised of vintage styled timepieces inspired by watches used in Military Air Forces.
Presently, GRAHAM is offering four different watches, each produced in a limited edition of 250, derive their distinctive identity from aged metal cases. The inspiration palette for the new watch spans from 1940s military aircraft to the gunmetal grey furniture at home in the hippest of Manhattan lofts.
Proudly basting the DNA of Chronofighter Vintage series, these watches stand out with their aged steel case and riveted dials with radial gradient. Ensuring the historic aviation inspiration remains on the radar screen, one reference (2CVAV.B17A) has a picture of the British Royal Air Force’s Halifax aircraft stamped on the aged steel grey PVD case back.
A sophisticated accelerated aging process gives the old metal aspect to the steel case initially coated with dark grey PVD. Each CHRONOFIGHTER VINTAGE AIRCRAFT Ltd watch comes with an aged coloured cotton canvas or denim straps.
The engine powering the CHRONOFIGHTER VINTAGE AIRCRAFT Ltd watch is the G1747 automatic chronograph movement with 48 hours power reserve.
The 48mm diameter case is topped with a domed sapphire crystal glass. Except the reference 2CVAV.B17A, all variants feature see-through sapphire case backs.
