Chronofighter 1695 Silver

Tribute to George

A watch for Gentlemen. GRAHAM’s passion for refined details usually leads to admirable creations. But the genius of watch making science lies in its ability to create simple timepieces from the most complicated mechanism. GRAHAM has developed a graceful unique chronograph which brings its fundamental watch making developments and British touch of style together. Let’s discover the craftsmanship of GRAHAM’s legacy.

GRAHAM made its new Chronofighter 1695 a timeless watch making instrument. An automatic 42 mm chronograph powered by a sophisticated Swiss movement. The minutes counter is placed at 6 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock, a distinctive GRAHAM disposition. In keeping with Gentlemen’s taste for style, we have also chosen to crown the watch with a silver (925) case. The silver (925) case back is elaborately hand-engraved with the Greenwich Royal Observatory as a tribute to the early life of George Graham, the official watchmaker of this important British Institution. The case back also features a sapphire aperture on the balance wheel and the escapement. An homage to “Honest George”, the father of the chronograph and creator of simplified escapements which are the ancestor of the Swiss modern escapement. Elegant and distinctive.

The renowned GRAHAM start and stop system is naturally present on the left side of the case to be activated by the thumb. The silver colored dial is finely-worked and features Roman numerals to recall George’s original pocket watch. Minimalistic and efficient.
