Graham Silverstone RS GMT

The elegant racing Silverstone RS GMT combines an impressive range of sophisticated functions such as chronograph, GMT, big date, tachymeter and flyback with a singular and well groomed look. Sporty and classy with enhanced functionalities, the Silverstone RS GMT allows a precise time measurement with an easy-to-read GMT function as well as a big date at 6 o’clock enabling travellers, juggling with time zones and moving to the four corners of the earth to find their way and time easily. The GMT function (2 time zones’ simultaneous reading) is readable at a glance and quickly set thanks to the graduation on the black ceramic (Zr02) bezel. It can be adjusted in steps of an hour independently from the regular hour hand.

In addition to showing the hours, minutes and seconds, the chronograph is equipped with a tachymeter that gives a rapid and precise measurement thanks to instant calculation of the average speed. The flyback function completes the watch and enabling to reset the chrono to zero without stopping it. After releasing the red aluminium flyback pusher, the second hand will restart immediately from zero. This function allows the user to start retiming quickly with one push of a button: a function originally used by pilots.
For further wearer comfort, the crown allows setting of all functions. The elegant steel case is executed in steel and enhanced by an elaborate red aluminium ring with “Clous de Paris” decoration. The open black dial sports two counters and offers an exceptional view on the movement. The travel friendly model comes with a new cushioned leather strap developed to resist to all journeys, trips and any fast-paced drive.
