I like to think of a watch as an art masterpiece. I simply adore what it represents. Such a workmanship is genuinely pleasing to my senses. With this in mind, join me in discovering another great masterpiece from Graham – the Chronofighter Superlight Carbon watch.
Where it really makes a distinction is the way it presents Graham watch signature. The start and stop lever on the left of the case is made of pure carbon fiber same as the material used in aeronautics and similar fields providing the watch with enhanced stiffness and usability. Such is the product of a thorough research and inventive process in an assembly only made possible by Graham’s technological prowess.
When it comes to lightness and durability, the Chronofigter is really up for the challenge. Carbon is used in aeronautics and similar fields for two reasons – weight and strength. Now, imagine those properties in a watch. It is not that difficult to trust the technology offered by the Chronofighter. I certainly adore the strength of this watch and hopeful that it is indeed ready to make its voyage to eternity. I guess, that is how much Graham invested on this timepiece.
Such a great and careful planning must have been given to this watch. I surely adore the precise location of the carbon fiber trigger. The chronograph is made with intuitive touches to enhance and ease the reading process thanks to its carbon fiber trigger that facilitates speed measurement in a tachymeter scale with a reversed minute’s counter in a white-painted indicator showing the starting point.
What finishes the Chronofighter Superlight Carbon watch for that optimum lightweight and shockproof use in all natural situations is the shiny bezel and dial augmented by the “Clous de Paris” strap and plain carbon fiber buckle resulting from intensive research and precise executions – a genuine climax of advance technology.
Perhaps, if you’re looking at this watch I assume you’re after size and accuracy with elegance in mind. The Chronofigther certainly delivers its promise. This oversize yet lightweight watch merely weighs less than a hundred grams. Behind the smoked sapphire crystal case back is a glimpse of its internals. It’s water resistance is graded up to 100 meters. What powers it is a caliber G1747 automatic chronograph movement with incabloc shock absorber whose faultless beating pace of 28,800 A/h (4 Hz) assures it of a 48 hour power reserve. Its domed sapphire crystal, anti-reflective coating on both faces simply houses its already elegant internals. For more info, please visit graham1695.com
