Graham Chronograph Fighter Oversized Target Watch Review

Speaking of steel chronographs, we certainly have no shortage of choices of various brands and price points. If you start looking for areas that are more embellished (or refined-no matter how you want to mark them), this area will shrink a bit. Add the requirement of bold visual impact, and you cut the field again. Although it is certainly not the only option, Graham Chronofighter Oversize Target certainly meets these requirements, and the latest version of Graham Chronofighter adds a pretty good dial handling.

Let’s do the first thing first, and then sort out the obvious. Yes, the “Oversize” in the name of the Graham Chronofighter Oversize Target is partly attributed to the 47 mm case it embodies and the large carbon fiber trigger added on the left side. For me, because 47 mm is their standard size, it is best to remove the “super large” part of the name. Although the case is definitely larger than what I usually consider wearing, it has an additional benefit.

This benefit is that I really didn’t notice it until I was writing this article on my wrist. Due to the large diameter, the watch can be slid out of the cuff so that you can read the time while still hiding the chronograph trigger. This does make the wrist look clean, because you can only see the smooth right side of the case. In addition, our review sample has a polished black finish on its ceramic bezel (or black chrome if you want), which makes things even more refined. In addition, it can prevent you from blinding yourself due to reflections from the bezel. Inside the bezel and under the sapphire crystal glass are the best parts of this new model.

That is of course a smoky and colored dial. Although I haven’t seen many (and usually limited to the cutouts on regular dials), I quickly became a fan of this treatment. Obviously, it does allow you to see the movement-although in this case, it is not a particularly exciting point of view. You may not realize that when using these translucent dials, it does give a feeling of printing (numbers, indexes, etc.) floating on the dial. In the case of our Graham Chronofighter Oversize Target loan, this makes things stand out in stark contrast, which makes reading the time a breeze-when you can see the movement from the side of the dial, this is not always so Easy to do.

This version uses green (there are two other options: blue on the white rubber strap and gray on the calfskin strap), and you also get a color conversion capability. Depending on the lighting situation-or your angle to the light-it can change from a darker green to a lighter olive color to match (more or less) the rubber strap that comes with it. It is worth noting that the end of the strap is firmly attached to the lugs, and there is no gap between the strap and the case. In other words, you have a bracelet with solid end links, the material of which is perfect for summer (read: no water problems). The texture you see on the strap is called Clous de Paris, and it appears on another part of the watch.

That place is the chronograph reset button, because it is black, although you can definitely feel it, but it looks a bit ugly. This pusher (and the trigger below) interacts with the G1747 automatic movement housed in the case. Although viewing the movement through the smoky dial is not that exciting, it is more interesting when viewing it through the exhibition back. You have several different finishes, including the conspicuous Geneva stripes on the rotor, and some blue screws for added touch. It is worth noting that although the 4Hz movement is not COSC certified, it has been adjusted in five positions, so you should expect accuracy. cheap mens watches

Again, in the daily wear of a watch like the Graham Chronofighter Oversize Target, things such as adjustment accuracy are not the primary consideration-it is more like a problem of living with the watch. Although the 150g watch is larger than I usually think, it is still very comfortable. A large part of this is due to the strap and inclined lugs, as well as the fact that the trigger, crown and buttons are located on the left side of the case. This means that for our left-wrist wearers, the extra volume won’t penetrate deep into your wrist (for those who wear it on the right wrist, you will have a different experience). When wearing the Graham Chronofighter Oversize Target, it did attract some attention, first because of its size, and secondly because of the carbon fiber trigger and smoked dial.

Finally, Graham Chronofighter Oversize Target is an interesting iteration of the series. There are now a variety of versions and colors, which means that if you are interested in this style of cheap watches, you can choose from within the brand.

Graham Chronofighter Vintage

Graham Chronofighter GMT Replica Watch 2OVGG.B16A

Although the Chronofighter Superlight Carbon series comes in a variety of colors and the engravings on the Chronofighter Graffitis sapphire glass are also diverse, I recently commented separately (see the link below). The Chronofighter Vintage is the most eclectic of the eclectic watches produced by Graham Philosophy series.

Considering the wrist in the comments mentioned above, I think we can all agree that the 44mm diameter of the Vintage series is more suitable for my sports wrist.

The pulsometer is the most beautiful vintage in Chronofighter Vintages. That means you can call a watch with mechanical attachments beautiful. Although, I think the object has the inherent elegance similar to that of the transformer to perform its function, or it is a strong, watch-shaped magnet that has floated on the cutlery drawer.

The whole idea of ​​Chronofighter Vintage Pulsometer attracted me. Most people might laugh at the essence of a chronograph without a minute recorder. However, this will lose the point of the pulsimeter, because the pulsometer is designed to absorb your or other people’s pulse so that you can stroke their arteries. I have always been active. My father participated in marathons all over the world and played squash at the club level until he was in his 60s. He seemed to go all out. My father, he is very stoic. I think this attitude eliminated me.

Although, I have to say that I never had the concept of continuous operation for hours. I actually seem to want to go where I want to go, which is why I often ride a bicycle. I am 50 years old and I am proud of my standing heart rate. My phone has a health app. The only part I use is the heart rate monitor. You can place your finger on the camera lens and accurately display the amplitude of the heart at any given moment. It is true. It’s like some kind of witchcraft or something. Anyway, I am a little addicted to it. I want to know what my heart rate is when I’m still (according to records, between 48 and 54), how high I can get when riding a bike (186 and I’m about to pass out) and how fast I can bpm from there Recovery (about a minute, although my legs disagree). I have some friends and family members who are also obsessed with gadgets worn on their wrists or the number of steps on their phones.

For some people, they are going to walk around in the living room at night, trying to increase the count to 10,000, or any meaningless goal they set. I never understood this because I am sure that if you manage only 9878 steps a day instead of 10,000 steps, then you will not suddenly become morbidly obese. However, it is scientifically proven that low heart rate is for you. Therefore, I often check. Therefore, for the sake of brevity, a long paragraph (oh, yes, this is a long paragraph, I’m sorry), I did achieve the desired purpose while using the Chronofighter Vintage Pulsometer, and I am very happy for it. I am grateful that not everyone is like me, but I am sure that there are enough fashion doctors in the world to make up for the remaining 249 of the 250 limited edition products.

In any case, I will recall the elegance and sophistication of the Pulsometer (within this other Chronofighters’ current company) and reiterate that this is a beautiful and desirable timepiece. Relatively speaking, if you only like the aesthetics of the paired back, there may be the argument that the second hand runs indefinitely and the pulsometer becomes an ordinary three-hand watch. I realized that there is already a small dial with the running seconds hand at 3 o’clock, but it is too stern, so there is no mark, it can only really be used as an indicator that the movement is running. This bizarre sub-dial is purely elegant and is in complete harmony with the rest of the design philosophy, even if this very casual scale borders on small things.

You would think that the pulsometer would continue to conflict with yourself. Do I want to be a refined and elegant classic style timepiece, or a practical and practical tool best fake watch with the best timing trigger mechanism in the world? Even the package works as an entity. The shameless hedonistic Chronofighter Vintage Pulsometer is one of the most perfect juxtapositions in the watch industry.

On the other hand, the Chronometer Vintage Nose Art series (arms, wrists) no matter where they are, they have those spectacular, slightly sexist and vivid “Nose Art” graphics, so they have attracted people’s attention.

As the name suggests, nose art is a decorative painting on the fuselage of an airplane, usually on the front. This practice was strengthened by the Italians and Germans in the First World War. The most famous is the German mouth feature under the propeller. It eventually evolved into the shark mouth that we are all more familiar with, which was used by the Luftwaffe and the Royal Air Force in World War II.

The US Air Force started with the iconic “shark” (see above), but then this expression of free will gradually developed into the nose art celebrated by Graham replica Watches.

The rules of nose art have never been particularly strict, and during World War II there were more artistic changes aimed at improving the morale of troops.

By the way, the first AVG (American Volunteer Organization) was called the “Flying Tigers” and there are also memorials elsewhere in this article, with a small amount of special edition timepieces in stainless steel or bronze.

The dial of this unique and unique Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art series is decorated with many beauties, including Lucia (this is the case throughout the article), Belle, Kelly, Sally, Chloe, Linda, Lilly, Anna, Nina and Christmas special Holiday model Merry. Trying to remain monogamous and have easy access to the harem of these outstanding women is not easy.

Graham Swordfish fake

The Swordfish morphs unorthodox into trendy. Subversive becomes cohesive in the new Swordfish timepieces. Named after a highly migratory predator, they use technical prowess and unconventional design to swim in bigger seas. Two 20% magnifying glasses over the hour and minute counters stare out questioningly at the onlooker.

Never. Standing out from the crowd? Always.
The aptly named Graham Swordfish Bronze is a horological leviathan, measuring 46mm in diameter. Moreover, irrespective of its environment, this generously proportioned watch always looks at ease with its surroundings.
Stunning and charismatic, the first Graham Swordfish replica watches were born in 2004, with an unorthodox identity. This new design remains a rare species, and is now evolving into one that is manoeuvring its way into the expansive catchment area of discerning watch lovers.
When handling the Graham Swordfish Steel one can readily discern the impressive quality of the case. Everything is beautifully executed, without the merest hint of sharpness or wayward machining. The brand states that the crown is equipped with ‘2 joints’ to enhance water resistance and the pushpieces feature clous de Paris on their vertical flanks, conferring a sublime tactility.
The Graham watch brand as we know it really planted its feet with the Swordfish collection of timepieces. This fished-eye family actually began with a single eye design in the Swordfish Grillo. Double magnifier eyes were later added to the 46mm wide collection.

The Graham SNIPER chronograph is a specially released 30-piece gift series for those who, without revealing their names, always reach the goal and adhere to the military intelligence motto: “Without the right to glory, to the glory of the Motherland!”. The GRU spetsnaz, the elite of the Russian army, its strength and pride, performed and still performs the tasks of increased complexity and secrecy: the fight against terrorism, the organization and conduct of intelligence. It was a bat that for many years served as the emblem of the military intelligence of the USSR and Russia.
Graham Chronofighter is the epitome of the brand’s historical heritage and brands flagship collection. The series was created exclusively for large dial wristwatches, the diameter of which reaches 47 mm, with case thickness in some models – 16 mm. The circular case is in stainless steel or rose gold, water resistant reaches 10 atm.
The evolution of Graham’s cornerstone model. Named after the great British watchmaker, Graham was founded by Eric Loth in 1995. The Chronofighter, the cornerstone of the brand’s collections, is inspired by vintage military aviation pieces – in particular, 1930s and 1940s bomb timers. When it was launched in 2001, the model immediately drew attention, breaking out of the norm with its distinctive chronograph
The Chronofighter is by far the largest Graham watch collection. The company’s designers took inspiration from vintage pilot’s chronographs from the 1930s and 40s when crafting the Chronofighter Vintage.This timepiece features a black, white, olive green, or blue sunburst dial, which feels especially clean thanks to its narrow line indices and tapered sword hands.

Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Skeleton

We have a soft spot for watch brands that lean into doing things a bit differently, and the Graham Chronofighter is up there as a divisive design signature that has defined the brand. The chronograph trigger on the left side of the case was inspired by a countdown timer watch that Universal Geneve developed for the Italian Air Force back in the 1930s and has been a staple of the Chronofighter for about 20 years now. But does the unconventional military-inspired design translate when we’re talking about a complication like a tourbillon chronograph rather than a casual sports watch?
Limited to 100 pieces, the Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Skeleton Tourbillograph is all about being big. At 47mm-wide in a very lightweight black carbon case, it’s also got one of the biggest tourbillons around that I’ve seen. Vintage military design, modern case construction, and legit horological chops all make for what is overall a pretty compelling package for an admittedly niche person — that is, if your wrist and wallet are big enough.
While the case size is 47mm-wide, that’s without the chronograph trigger. My calipers have it at 57mm-wide with the trigger, 17.5mm-thick, and with a lug-to-lug height of 55mm. What’s also big is the tourbillon, which I don’t have a precise measurement for, but the ends of the bridges are about 21mm apart. I think a more conventionally sized smaller tourbillon would look funny in a watch this big and aggressive, but Graham pulled it off.
The watch is really light, though I felt a little silly being surprised when I first picked it up considering “Superlight” is right there in the name. Still, the large case size and aggressive design don’t betray the 100g weight (which is just about what a Tudor Black Bay on strap weighs). This is, of course, due to the black carbon composite case, though the tourbillon cage itself comes in at 0.485g, which is a feather more than the 0.403g weight of Audemars Piguet’s tourbillon cage used in its current production models. Watch media can get a little overexcited in covering the newest record-breaking thinnest or lightest watches, but the reality is that while the Graham isn’t any particular record holder, it’s about as light as I could perceive a watch this size on my wrist to be.
While it’s certainly big for me, if your wrist circumference is > 8 inches, the Chronofighter Tourbillograph really is pretty practical when you consider its unobtrusive weight and 100M of water resistance. The chronograph trigger on the left side of the case is a quirky design signature, for sure, but at least it’s not going to be confused with anything else out there, which is more than I can say for a lot of watches.
I’ve worn more large watches than I can count that have a traditional crown that digs into my hand. Not a problem here, as the chronograph trigger, while large and protrusive, is not felt or noticeable at all on the wrist.
The G1780 is an automatic column-wheel chronograph and tourbillon that Graham first introduced about 10 years ago when it was outfitted in a watch from the brand’s Silverstone collection. This movement was made exclusively for Graham by La Joux-Perret and, while it’s not new, it’s actually got some interesting stuff going for it. First off, it’s rare to see a tourbillon that is integrated into a column-wheel chronograph, the wheels of which you can see at work through the tourbillon cage. Operating at 28,800 vph with a 48-hour power reserve, the G1780 is hand-finished with Geneva stripes, perlage, chamfering, and polished edges. The column wheel has parts of the base cog wheel polished in order to reduce friction, as well. The tourbillon cage is comprised of 48 parts, several of which are done in 18k gold, like the upper tourbillon bridge and oscillating rotor.
The movement is Chronofiable-certified, which isn’t a household name like COSC or other tests, but it’s noteworthy, nonetheless. Carried out at Laboratoire Dubois in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the Chronofiable certification has to do with the durability and toughness of the watch and movement. This process simulates shocks, acceleration, and temperature changes over 21 days, which is equivalent to six months of wear. This is the same certification you’ll find on some Richard Mille watches such as the RM 035 Rafael Nadal, though I believe they now have an in-house test. La Joux-Perret has two patents having to do with protection of the tourbillon, which they call a “shockproof” tourbillon. In addition to Incabloc shock absorbers, they reduced the tourbillon down to as few components as possible and constructed a double-bridge for rigidity and stability. Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Skeleton replica

Given how delicate tourbillons can be, I think the reassurance of the Chronofiable certification is pretty important if you want to actually wear this watch around as its meant to be without worrying.
The chronograph is activated and paused via the trigger pusher, while the gripped pusher at 10 o’clock resets it. With the 30-minute chronograph counter sub-dial at 9 o’clock and that big tourbillon stretching between 3 and 6 o’clock, there really isn’t any room left on the dial for much else. I’m pretty agnostic about the matching black carbon dial that matches the case, and I do think a bit more could be done with the Graham logo and indices that are in a white varnish finish. It’s just a bit flat, for me. Still, the large lumed red gold hands match the red gold seconds hand that is set inside the tourbillon aperture very nicely and contrast with the black carbon in a way that’s refined but still appropriate for the military-watch vibe of the Graham Chronofighter.
Tourbillon chronographs are a particularly quirky niche group that tends to be very expensive, with offerings from Richard Mille, Bulgari, Audemars Piguet, Zenith, and even Bell & Ross all stretching well into the six-figures.

The mini-metronome has the potential to make the heart skip a beat in terms of stunning looks, authenticated by the iconic stop-start trigger. Whether syncopated jazz music or motivating gym playlists are on the programme, the Chronofighter Vintage Pulsometer presents a convincing case for mechanical being the new smart.

Graham Chronofighter Prodive Replica

As a limited edition for 2012 Graham releases this new dive watch version of the Chronofighter called the Chronofighter Prodive Professional. Highlights include a bold design, monopusher chronograph and 600 meters of water resistance. One cool thing that Graham seems to suggest is that the chronograph can be used underwater. If this is true, then the watch does in fact set itself apart from most diving chronograph watches that would have their water resistance ratings compromised if their chronograph mechanisms were used while the watch was submerged. Graham Chronofighter Prodive Replica
Graham calls the new Chronofighter Prodive “the reference luxury diving watch.” While I like the piece I think that is a bit of a lofty statement. I am pretty sure that other people referencing something makes an object a reference. Not “self-referencing” that you are a reference. It was a cute effort though.
At 45mm wide in steel, the Chronofighter Prodive Professional actually feels larger than it is. A lot of that is because of the chronograph trigger system that you find in Chronofighter models. Placed on the left side of the case, the trigger system in this watch is a monopusher – so you cycle between start, stop, and reset in a single pusher. Above the trigger is the crown for the watch placed at about 10 o’clock. The crown is rubber coated and colored to match the piece’s hue theme.
As a dive watch, the Chronofighter Prodive does not disappoint. It has 600 meters of water resistance, an automatic helium release valve, uni-directional rotating timing bezel with lume at 60 minutes, and a lot of lume on the hands and hour markers on the dial. The dial itself features the time with subsidiary seconds dial (that looks propeller-ish), date and 30 minute chronograph. The overall design looks both modern and professional with a lot of marine influence. I think a lot of people will enjoy the looks of this watch to go with their casual air tank and weekend flippers.
On the rear of the Graham Chronofighter Prodive Professional timepiece is an engraved caseback with a shark on it. Always fun to have a predator from the deep on your watch. Makes a seahorse feel wimpy by comparison. Inside the watch is a Graham G1750 automatic Swiss movement with 48 hours of power reserve. According to Graham, the entire Chronofighter Prodive Professional watch collection will be limited to only 200 pieces for the yellow version with the others being non limited (which apparently don’t have the “Professional” part on the name). With a steel case and professional instrument looks, it would be strange of me to call this a “luxury watch.” I would consider it a durable high-end Swiss dive lifestyle watch with the ability to actually dive. Versions come in yellow, blue, and black trim
Advanced manufacturing processes have been used to develop a stylish diving instrument. The Chronofighter Prodive is a true luxury diver’s collection which features a patented mono-pusher chronograph system, two colours of radiation-free luminescent indications and an automatic helium valve. Each watch is tested to resist and go beyond 2000 feet. The Prodive will give make any watch lover perfectly amphibian.

Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft

Love it or hate it, the trend of the vintage-inspired watch seems to show no signs of slowing down. For sure, such watches might lack originality by definition; but at the same time, it has also given rise to some truly great new watches like Tag Heuer’s Autavia and Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Master Geographic. In any case, there are loads more of these watches being released, but one of the most interesting new pieces is the limited edition Replica Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd. Let’s take a look at why this collection of vintage-inspired watches is worthy of attention.
There are four new models in the collection and each one is limited to 250 pieces. Let’s go through the basics first and then talk about the differences between the four models. First up, these new Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd. watches have Graham’s distinctive case design with the start/stop trigger for the chronograph function. Case size is 44mm, but because of the large start/stop trigger and onion crown as well as the muscular design of the lugs, these watches will likely wear a lot larger.
One aspect of the Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd. watches that makes them stand out from other vintage-inspired watches is their case. Apart from having Graham’s signature design, they are made from aged steel with a gray PVD. From the press photos, it seems that this unique combination has given them an old, used, and worn in look.
To complete the vintage looks, the four Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd. watches will also have riveted dials that are meant to mimic the look of old aircraft from the ’30s and ’40s. All models will come with matching canvas and denim straps. Water resistance is 100m.
The ref. 2CVAV.B17A has a black dial and a radial finish that gets darker around the edges. It also has beige Super-LumiNova hands and hour markers. Green is used for the chronograph hands, chronograph register, and the subsidiary seconds dial. But most notably, this reference has a solid caseback stamped with the British Royal Air Force’s Halifax aircraft.
The ref. 2CVAV.B19A is arguably the most modern-looking of the collection. It has a black radial finish dial, but in place of beige Super-LumiNova, it has white Super-LumiNova hands and markers. Along with the red hands for the chronograph’s 30-minute register, this gives this particular reference a more modern vibe.
The final two models are the ref. 2CVAV.B18A and ref. 2CVAV.U03A. The former features a black radial finish dial, while the latter has a funky deep blue radial finish dial. Both models have beige Super-LumiNova hour and minute hands, and hour markers. The chronograph 30-minute registers have red hands for better legibility. The ref. 2CVAV.U03A is particularly nice because it comes with a blue denim strap that I think nicely complements the dial.
All four watches are powered by the caliber G1747, which is based on the Valjoux 7750. It beats at 4Hz and offers a power reserve of around 48 hours (2 days). It features a day-date complication, which is displayed at 9 o’clock on the dial. The chronograph complication is operated using the specially designed trigger-style pusher that is also at 9 o’clock on the case. The pusher at 10 o’clock resets the chronograph.
Bold and brash are two adjectives often used to describe Graham’s Chronofighter watches and these four new models are no different. Most vintage-inspired watches stop short at having vintage dial elements like beige Super-LumiNova or designs based on watches from the archives, but these are refreshing in the sense that their cases do look remarkably worn in and used. Along with the riveted dials, this gives the Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd. watches a very strong vintage and used look that I think is quite different from other vintage-inspired watches from other brands and they deserve a closer look.
