THE VANTAGE OF VINTAGE
Yesterday is here to stay with the new Graham Chronofighter Vintage watches
Turning the clock back 15 years is a rich revelation.
Hip guys may have been chilling to Daft Punk’s “One More Time”, ogling the very first iPods, or sharing popcorn with Gandalf at the first “Lord of the Rings” movie.
But those really in the know would have been securing one of the first Graham Chronofighter watches.
The rest is history as the saying goes, but Graham is keeping the vintage vibe alive to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of its successful Chronofighter with four new additions to the iconic series. With their signature trigger on the left-hand side of the case, these Swiss made timepieces, integrating quirky British roots, are right on target to propel nostalgia confidently into the future.
Who dares wins …
Another new chronograph to satisfy the wannabe cool dude?
These Graham Chronofighter timepieces use the power of their innovative roots and wings to rule the kingdom of masculine mindfulness.
The bold trigger that starts and stops the chronograph acts as a double agent, simultaneously protecting the crown.
Whether this eye-catching design trademark is instantly in full view, or revealed gradually from its temporary hiding place behind a bomber jacket sleeve or crisp shirt cuff, the wow factor is guaranteed.
Wearers of this edgily industrial mean machine are no couch potatoes; so bold looks translate directly into comfort in action with angled lugs and soft leather straps.
The colour palette for the dials and straps embraces navy blue, brown or black.
For tough guys with a twist
Sophisticated high-performance is the domain of a G1747 automatic chronograph movement, visible through the case back, with an Incabloc shock absorber and a power reserve of 48 hours.
All of the Chronofighter watches are water resistant to 10 bar (100 meters) and their domed sapphire crystals have anti-reflective coating. Romantic whispers of yester years are clearly audible through bold styling statements of modernity.
This is the timekeeper for the guy who elegantly unites sporting the sleekest pilots’ sunglasses with carefully crafting a paper aeroplane for a six-year-old co-pilot.
Or for the male who derives equal enjoyment from trekking through wild landscapes and visualizing the one the glass of malt in his hand originated from. Graham wearers refuse to confuse reliable with predictable.
