“Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back.”
~ Harvey MacKay
George Graham (7 July 1673 – 20 November 1751) was an English clockmaker, inventor, and geophysicist, and a Fellow of the Royal Society.
This Graham Chronofighter marked the re-launch of the Graham brand in 2001, in homage to George Graham, the inventor of the chronograph. It was designed by Pierre-Andre Finazzi, and produced in Limited Edition. This model is numbered #0099.
This is the first generation model & a signature model for the brand.
The watch was equipped with a trigger-type mechanism of quick-action coaxial control, located on the left side, which allowed for practical, fast and ergonomic manipulation. This unique system was inspired by WWII British Royal Air Force pilots flying the “Lancaster” bombers. They were wearing thick fur coats and needed watches with large crowns and pushers. This is the first generation model & a signature model for the brand.
