Graham Chronofighter Oversize Superlight Carbon

GRAHAM continues its watchmaking prowess by launching a second remarkable technological timepiece which brings Superlight technology to its peak. The Chronofighter Superlight Carbon is the first carbon-fibre-made Chronofighter watch combining complex and unprecedented machining processes. Four different high-technology forms in high-strength carbon processing, innovative and not peculiar to watch making, have been used to create the Chronofighter Oversize Superlight Carbon.

The watch is enhanced by a superlight black carbon nanotube composite case, carbon trigger, bezel, dial and buckle. Light, soft and comfortable to wear, the Chronofighter Oversize Superlight Carbon will survive rough treatment and the passage of time. Only a high-level of ambition and extensive research enabled the creation of the impactful and reliable Chronofighter Oversize Superlight carbon watch. Perhaps, the easiest way to understand the technical feat is to think of the various carbon properties. Convenient, malleable and lightweight, carbon is the preferred material in aeronautics, car racing, aerospace, sports and other domains that require lightness, strength and performance. By combining carbon fibre and a strong polymer matrix, carbon fibre composites are simply reshaping the world of high performances.
All the conditions are there to create the most resistant and lightest time machine. GRAHAM has developed a case, made of carbon nanotube speckled composite. The start and stop lever on the left of the case, the renowned GRAHAM signature, is made of plain carbon fibre –multi layers- and results from a very specific machining process. This means that the lever is a unique piece of carbon which provides the watch with more stiffness and enhanced usability. Thanks to the instinctive and precise use of the carbon fibre trigger, the chronograph facilitates the measurement of speed thanks to a tachymeter scale and a reversed minute’s counter with a white painted indicator to show the starting point. The function emphasizes the intuitive use of the chronograph and immediate reading.

The shiny carbon bezel and dial perfectly finish the watch design and enable an optimum lightweight and shockproof use in all situations. Dedicated to adrenaline and advanced technology, the watch is held by a yellow integrated “Clous de Paris” strap and plain carbon fibre buckle made of different parts and resulting from an inventive assembly process.

The Chronofighter Oversize Superlight Carbon is equipped with calibre G1747 automatic chronograph with date at 8 o’clock.
