I have a soft place for watch brands which lean into doing things a bit differently, and the Replica Graham Chronofighter is up there as a divisive layout signature that has defined the brandnew. The chronograph trigger on the left side of the situation was inspired by a countdown timer opinion which Universal Geneve created for the Italian Air Force back in the 1930s and has been a staple of the Chronofighter for approximately 20 decades now. However, does the unconventional military-inspired design translate when we’re speaking about a complication such as a tourbillon chronograph as opposed to a casual sports watch?
Limited to 100 pieces, the Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Skeleton Tourbillograph is all about being big. At 47mm-wide at a really lightweight black carbon instance, it has also got one of the biggest tourbillons around that I have seen. Classic military layout, modern case structure, and untrue horological chops make for what is overall a fairly compelling package for an admittedly niche person — that is, even if your pocket and wrist are large enough.
While the situation size is 47mm-wide, that’s without the chronograph trigger. My calipers have it 57mm-wide with the trigger, 17.5mm-thick, also with a lug-to-lug height of 55mm. What’s also large is that the tourbillon, which I do not have a precise dimension for, but the ends of these bridges are approximately 21mm apart. I believe a more conventionally sized smaller tourbillon would look funny in a watch this big and aggressive, but Graham Chronofighter Replica watch Navy SEALs pulled it off.
