At the 2016 Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show, Graham celebrated the 15th anniversary of its Chronofighter model and launched four "old-fashioned" models. After returning to the UK, I had the opportunity to use the version I chose to "hands-on". I was immediately attracted to a glamorous blue dial and a model with a leather strap. Soon this watch is mine.
The "Vintage" watch was inspired by the stopwatch used by the Royal Air Force flight crew during World War II. These watches, with an effective pocket watch tied to the sleeves of the bomber's jacket, are especially important when flying, especially at night.
At high altitudes, pilots and their timepieces are exposed to cold temperatures while operating in a non-pressurized cockpit, and their watches must be difficult to survive in such a harsh working environment. Therefore, accuracy and reliability are two prerequisites for pilot watches.
In addition to wearing the now iconic leather Owen flying jacket, lined with sheepskin, the pilot also wears thick gloves and is keen to avoid the temperature of bites. However, within the scope of the cockpit, the gloves prevent free movement of the fingers, so the thumb-operated trigger proved to be the best ergonomic solution.
Graham's founder, Eric Loth, an engineer and physicist, talked to medical professionals and learned that the thumb is the fastest finger. In addition, the thumb can move independently of other fingers. With this in mind and inspired by the military aviation of the past, he envisioned an unusual triggering device that decorated the left-hand wing of the Chronofighter case.Graham london 2OVGS.B39A replica watch
In order to accurately measure the elapsed time, it is crucial to keep the absolute time from the observation event to the time when the timer is started. Again, this is also the case when the elapsed time interval has elapsed and the wearer needs to stop the chronograph. Graham Chronofighter Vintage's trigger design eases this "human factor" and proves intuitive use, with a courteous right thumb that fits the ergonomic interface.
Surprisingly, although this watch is called "Vintage", the blue tone of its dial is very popular, I like it very much. Blue is an incredibly versatile color that, combined with countless outfits, adds to the look of many cut stitches. The dial is embellished with an elegant sun pattern that radiates from the fulcrum of the dial and shimmers in the light.
The “modern” hour and minute hands feature a polished metal frame lined with white luminescent filler. The white slender index, along with the Arabic numerals at noon, presents contemporary features. Both the hand and hour markers give a green glow in dim light.
The small seconds display shows the small bezel on the strip at 3 o'clock. A 30-minute chronograph featuring details, located at 6 o'clock, has a greater significance due to its larger diameter. Graham excelled in playing the depths, sag the small dial, which improved the aesthetic of the dial.luxury Tag Heuer CAL5112.FC6298 cheap watch
The two holes at 9 o'clock show the date and date on two separate discs. The font is white, almost natural, and very clear. The date disc is slightly lower than the day disc but not readable.
The white central chronograph hands feature a very slim red tip that matches the clear white markings around the dial.
As a short-sighted thing in his forties, it is sometimes difficult for me to read the dials of some watches without the aid of glasses. However, even without my bifocal glasses, Graham Chronofighter Vintage is easy to read.
Some of the dial elements of Graham Chronofighter Vintage are very modern. In fact, the blue tone of the dial, the style of the plate pointer, the Arabic numerals at noon and the fonts displayed on the date are full of modernity. However, although these details seem to be quite different, the design language is harmonious and all elements are well integrated. hublot big bang unico replica watches
The highly polished steel case is 44 mm in diameter, but somehow it appears smaller when worn. Graham made subtle changes to the timing of the timer, thus improving its appearance.
The sapphire crystal has a slightly dome-shaped mirror that is flush with the bezel. The bezel is sunken, creating interesting shadows that make it fun to play with. Interestingly, the case has a raised bulge that contrasts sharply with the bezel above. The lugs taper down and the strap is pulled closer to the case for added cleanliness.
The brand decided to equip Graham Chronofighter Vintage with a unique trigger system that could differentiate opinions. In fact, my acceptance of this trigger may seem cumbersome. However, the Swiss watch company has modified the shape of the device in 2016 to bring it closer to the case strap, giving a cleaner look. Personally, I found my thumb instinctively connected to the trigger system, and I appreciate its features. Furthermore, by positioning the trigger on the left hand side of the housing, it does not exert it on the arm, allowing the wrist to move freely.wholesale cheap replica watches
The 10 o'clock position above the trigger is a button that resets the timer register.
The gorgeous blue leather strap perfectly surrounds my wrist and gives the wearer a level of comfort.
The Calibre G1747 self-winding movement can be seen through the bottom cover of the exhibition. The oscillating quality is decorated with the CôtesdeGenève pattern. Below the rotor, some bridges are once again decorated with Geneva waves, while others are featured.
The balance has a frequency of 28,800 vph (4 Hz) and includes an Incabloc shock absorber. The Swiss sport consists of 25 gems with a power reserve of 48 hours.
Graham did not copy the design of other watch brands, but imagined that he was very unique. In my opinion, this is a beautiful clock.
The dial clearly talks to the wearer and the trigger is user friendly, providing an excellent tactile interface to the watch. In addition, the trigger reduces the time the wearer considers to start the chronograph, or conversely, stops the stopwatch function.
In my time, this watch proved to be a fashionable watch companion. Its predecessor's blue color scheme proved to be ideal for pairing jeans and casual shirts. In addition, this watch caused an optimistic view of the blue sky in the summer, which is a reasonable concept of the pilot's watch. Graham's clever ideas triggered a remarkable blue sky thinking. In fact, maybe we should rename Eric Loss, "Mr. Blue Sky." replica tonino lamborghini watches
