Swiss watch brand Graham celebrates the year of the Dog according to Chinese Zodiac calendar with Kelly, latest model from the new Nose Art Chronofighter limited edition watch collection inspired by Nose Art – Decorative painting on the nose, fuselage of military aircrafts of 1940s.
In this new model, the faithful friend of this hand-painted pin-up lady Kelly (the girl dressed in a traditional body-hugging one piece Chinese dress called Cheongsam) is of the canine kind. The white Samoyed dog painted on the dial is hanging out between three and four o’clock, two of this New Year’s lucky numbers. Kelly’s cheongsam dress is in striking red, the perfect accompaniment to any lanterns or couplets that may cross the wearer’s path during festive celebrations.
This Swiss made Graham timepiece has an automatic chronograph G1747 movement, visible through the case back, and the family’s iconic trigger mechanism. Complementing the midnight blue dial is a hand-sewn blue calf-leather strap. Graham is creating just 100 pieces of this special watch, each signed off by Kelly at nine o’clock.
