GRAHAM’s retro Silverstone Vintage 30 harks back to the very earliest days of motor racing, when it was purely a rich gentleman’s sport. No trophies, no awards, no podium. It was a time when the pleasure to drive was stronger than any competition. The only focus was the track, the car and the sense of a job well done.
In those far off days the main criterion to be able to participate was to have a vehicle with at least three wheels! Cars and mechanics were at the centre, no matter the number of wheels.
The watch is powered by an automatic bi-compax chronograph. The watch is streamlined and aesthetically refined to achieve genuine aerodynamics and technology.
As carefully as the cars were built, the Silverstone Vintage 30 watch has been created according to the codes of vintage racing and with respect for each part. The “Clous de Paris” decorated bezel, the thin shaped hands and the beige, brown and off-white colours have been elaborately added to the watch.
The GRAHAM Silverstone Vintage 30 itself is in a non-competition race which rewards watch making savoir-faire and spectators.
