Graham Chronofighter Superlight

Appearances can be deceptive. While the Graham Chronofighter Superlight measures a substantial 47mm in diameter it possesses a low mass of less than 100 grammes. This contemporary timepiece features a black composite case and a 3K carbon frame trigger.

Graham has often differentiated its models with a distinctive trigger device gracing the left hand flank of case. The thumb actuated trigger both starts and stops the chronograph function. Owing to the ergonomic design of the trigger, the time taken from observing an event to deploying the trigger is minimised, hence augmenting accuracy. The reset push-piece for the chronograph features a distinctive Clous de Paris high grip pattern, aiding operation and granting a stylish appearance.

The dial features plump lime green Modern hour and minute hands together with bold hour markers, heightening ease of read-off. The dial surface is formed of a carbon weave. Adjacent 3 o’clock is a small seconds display, while a 30-minute chronograph register resides at 6 o’clock.

A tachymeter scale surrounds the dial area, proving ideal for calculating the speed of a moving object. A red rubber strap complements the dark tones of the case, matches the red central chronograph seconds hand and adds a dose of vibrancy to this sporty ensemble.

The Chronofighter Superlight is powered by the self-winding Calibre G1747 movement. The case features an exhibition case-back, granting sight of the movement within.

This timepiece is available in our online shop and is supplied with a rubber strap, original box and papers.

Overall, this is a bold chronograph, imbued with high-quality case construction and an ergonomic chronograph trigger. However, perhaps most notably, the Chronofighter Superlight has an incredibly low mass proffering excellent levels of wearer comfort.
