The Graham Chronofighter Vintage GMT is a statement watch that is serious about the business of timekeeping. In line with the Graham tradition of making timepieces inspired by aviation watches, the latest edition to the company’s collections has been designed with travelers firmly in mind.
The Swiss-made timepiece features a G1733 automatic chronograph movement that allows the wearer to accurately view two timezones. The unidirectional rotation bezel, which is decorated with a lateral helical toothing, features 24 positions while a large double-disk date at 12 o’clock dresses up the dial.
However, it is the brand’s trademark stop-start trigger that makes this watch stand out from the crowd. The trigger, which combines a coaxial crown and push button, is an essential look for the brand and reflects the technical complexity that has gone into the watch’s construction.
It’s one of those watches that has a big, solid feel to it and carries that vintage feel, bordering on a touch of steampunk with the lever.
Add to the company’s 322 years of horological expertise and the Graham Chronofighter Vintage GMT is a watch that really sparks the imagination. A boxlock mechanism adds a slow, reassuring ticking sound to the ceramic bezel’s motion while the dark, sun-brushed dials with a radial gradient capture a wide range of shades to show off the Superluminova markings, snailed counters with a rhodiated ring. The overall look of the model is signed off by a see-through case back that reveals the movement’s intricate details.
The dial is available in green, brown, gray, and blue sun colorways that can be combined with hand-sewn calf leather straps.
With a 48-hour power reserve, 44mm steel case with fast action start/stop trigger and reset pusher and water resistance of up to 330 feet, the Graham Chronofighter Vintage GMT is a watch for serious collectors.
