Relics of English watches with impeccable Swiss designs, Graham watches were pioneered by London clockmaker George Graham, often touted as the Father of Modern watch-making. Born to innovate, he gave the world its first stopwatch, the mercury pendulum system and the unique chronograph. True to form, this collection lays claim to expert engineering. The Chronofighter series were first manufactured in the year 1695 and since then have expanded to become the most recognized and loved collection among Graham watches.
Created with an almost unscrupulous extravagance, the watch-makers have left no stone unturned in utilizing the best materials in the making of this collection. Cases are crafted using only regal material to give you value for money. The gold is always a solid 18 carats, the diamonds are a class above that which is used in most watches and the steel is the best grade available. Ceramic or carbon-fibre is also used in its finest make.
Manufactured in la-Chaux-de-Fonds, the watch-making capital of Switzerland, the Chronofighter collection expresses its uniqueness with charm. The Chronofighter Oversize series displays the brilliantly designed espresso-machine like lever placed shrewdly on the left side of this time-piece. The location of this well-polished 10 mm lever is such that it impairs no movement of the wrist and fits snugly on your left hand. The date is characteristically set between 8 and 9 o' clock for this line. The Chronofighter R.A.C Trigger series, another strongly styled statement in this watch collection, is equipped with a chronograph containing a 60 seconds and 30 minutes counter at 3 and 9 o'clock respectively. With oversize 12 and 6 hour numerals and the date displayed smartly at 7 o' clock, the watches bag awards for being all-rounders. They have a significantly personalized concave bezel crafted from a whole-domed sapphire crystal which is no mean engineering feat.
This collection is made to please sportsmen such as leading motor-sports champion, Alexandre Imperatori, who has been devoted to the Chronofighter series and the stand it takes on dedication and team spirit. The Chronofighter 1695 series also finds a fan in Kunal Nayyar, star of award-winning sitcom, The Big Bang Theory. The immaculately masculine and rugged look of this collection perfectly suits talent such as famed Rock musician, Glen Hughes who wears a Chronofighter oversize GMT, to name just very few.
