Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Limited Edition

Swiss watch brand GRAHAM continues its watchmaking prowess by launching another remarkable technological timepiece; which completes the Superlight Carbon collection trilogy. The Chronofighter Superlight Carbon is a carbon-fibre Chronofighter watch combining complex, high-performance machining processes.

The total weight of the watch is less than 100g. Four different high-technology forms in high-strength carbon processing, innovative and not unusual in watch making, have been used to create the Chronofighter Superlight Carbon. The watch is enhanced by a superlight black carbon composite case, carbon trigger, bezel, dial and buckle. Light, soft and comfortable to wear, the Chronofighter Superlight Carbon will survive rough treatment and the passage of time.
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.

That led GRAHAM to develop the carbon-fibre-made Chronofighter Superlight Carbon with improved properties. The case is made of carbon speckled composite which has a high capacity of shock absorption. The carbon matrix of the middle part of the case is directly cut into the solid material with high frequency tools made of Cubic Boron Nitrid (CBN – super abrasive material).
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. This function emphasizes the intuitive use of the chronograph and immediate reading.
Allergic free case back made of IXEF® Polyarylamide composite with fibreglass, approved by FDA and smoked sapphire crystal. The shiny carbon bezel and dial perfectly finish the watch’s design and enable an optimum lightweight and shockproof use in all situations.
Dedicated to adrenaline and advanced technology, the watch is held by a grey integrated “Clous de Paris” strap and plain carbon fibre buckle resulting from an inventive assembly process. The result is a super-resistant lightweight watch. The strength of material is due to the homogenous carbon nanostructure equally dispersed throughout the matrix of the polymer.
