GRAHAM Chronofighter Grand Vintage

The new Chronofighter Grand Vintage collection by Graham offers automatic chronograph watches inspired by historical timepieces used in Military Air Forces. Available in four versions, the GRAHAM Chronofighter Grand Vintage comes in a 47mm diameter stainless steel case with increased aperture and the iconic stop-start trigger.

The trigger on the left-hand side of the case acts as a symbolic bridge between nostalgia and modernity. Originally placed there for easy thumb-activated operation in the cockpit, it now facilitates smooth operation of the chronograph on the ground, stationary and at speed.

A domed sapphire glass integrates a magnifier for the date at nine o’clock. Crafted from steel, the case’s large aperture serves to enhance legibility of the chronograph dial. Inside each timepiece beats a Swiss G1747 automatic chronograph movement with an Incabloc shock absorber and power reserve of 48 hours.

Other major highlights of the watch are steel satin-brushed bezel and sun-brushed dial that comes in blue, brown, silver or black colours with radial gradient. The case back comprises a see-through sapphire crystal. The watch has water resistance to 10 bar (100 metres).

These watches feature Sporty rubber straps, in black or green, with a distinctive Milanese-style mesh pattern. The watches are also available with calf leather straps.
