Braving the elements: GRAHAM Chronofighter Oversize



GRAHAM Watches have just released the new Chronofighter  Oversize. Radically re-engineered,  the  Chronofighter  Oversize  features  designed to help modern explorers survive and move forward in demanding conditions.


The start and stop lever on the left of the case, is made of plain carbon material 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.  The black ceramic bezel gives the watch its strength and shining personality. 




To brave the elements, each watch is also endowed with a calculated telemeter scale. It enables to measure distances thanks to speed of sound by starting the chronograph when a visible event occurs (e.g. lightning) and stop it when the sound reaches the observer (e.g. thunder). As the temperature influences the speed of sound, our engineers have based their calculations on 25°C,  the  average  temperature  on  Earth.  The distance in  kilometres  can  be  measured  on  the  dial thanks to the scale rim (346 m/s). 


High-tech material and processes have been used to create a watch that withstands dangerous and rugged environments: a watch you can absolutely rely on.


The watch is light to wear and safe. The colours of each watch are designed to blend naturally into the world you like to inhabit.
