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. Stunning and charismatic, this 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.A fish out of water? 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.

Graham refloats its Swordfish chronograph, an eye-catching timepiece distinguished by its two prominent portholes on deck to magnify the elapsed time counters. The 46mm hulls are made from bronze and steel but the look of these two limited editions models couldn’t be more different.

Graham Chronofighter Special Series sniper

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.

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.

The watch comes dressed in a 44mm steel case topped with a domed sapphire crystal glass featuring anti-reflective coating. Inside beats a 25 jewels automatic chronograph movement with a power reserve of 48 hours.

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.

Graham Chronofighter Vintage review

At Baselworld 2016, Graham celebrated the 15th anniversary of its Chronofighter model with the release of four ‘vintage’ models. On my return to the UK I was offered the opportunity to ‘get hands-on’ with a version of my choosing. I immediately gravitated to a model featuring a captivating blue dial, with coordinating leather strap, and very soon the timepiece was temporarily mine. Graham Chronofighter Vintage

This ‘Vintage’ timepiece was inspired by the stopwatches once used by RAF flying officers during World War II. These watches, effectively pocket watches strapped to the sleeve of a bomber jacket, were vital when carrying out flying sorties, especially at night. Graham Chronofighter Vintage reivew

While operating at high altitudes, in non-pressurised cockpits, the pilots and their timepieces were exposed to freezing temperatures and their watches had to be tough to survive this hostile working environment. Therefore, both precision and reliability are two prerequisites for aviators’ watches. Graham Chronofighter Vintage replica

As well as wearing the now iconic leather Irvin flying jackets, lined with sheepskin, the flying officers also wore thick gloves, keen to stave off biting temperatures. However, in the confines of the cockpit, the gloves inhibited free movement of fingers, hence a thumb operated trigger proved the optimal ergonomic solution.

Eric Loth, the founder of Graham, an engineer and physicist by trade, spoke to medical professionals and learned that the thumb is the fastest acting finger. Moreover, the thumb can move independently of other fingers. With this in mind and inspired by military aviation of yesteryear, he conceived the unusual trigger device which adorns the left hand flank of the Chronofighter’s case.
In order to accurately measure elapsed time, it is critical that the time taken from observing an event to the moment the chronograph is actuated is kept to an absolute minimum. Equally, the same applies when the elapsed interval has passed and the wearer needs to stop the chronograph. The trigger design of the Graham Chronofighter Vintage mitigates this ‘human factor’, proving intuitive to use, courtesy of its ergonomic interface with the right thumb.
Surprisingly, despite this watch being referred to as ‘Vintage’, the blue hue of its dial is very en vogue and I adore it. Blue is an incredibly versatile colour, matching a myriad of clothes and augmenting the appearance of many sartorial ensembles. The dial is adorned with a tasteful sunray motif, emanating from the fulcrum of the dial that sparkles exquisitely in light.
The ‘modern’ hour and minute hands are framed with polished metal and lined with white luminescent fill. White, slender indexes, together with the Arabic numerals at noon, evince a contemporary character. Both the hands and hour markers bestow a green emission in dim light.

A small seconds display is presented on a snailed subdial at 3 o’clock. A 30-minute chronograph register, featuring snailed detail, is located at 6 o’clock and assumes greater significance courtesy of its larger diameter. Graham has wonderfully played with depths, recessing the subdials and, as a result, heightening the aesthetic appeal of the dial.

Two apertures, located at 9 o’clock, present the date and day on two separate discs. The typeface is white, neoteric in nature and highly legible. The date disc sits slightly lower than the day disc but does not mar readability.

The white central chronograph hand features a supremely slender red tip which collaborates with the crisp white markings gracing the perimeter of the dial.

As a shortsighted forty-something, I sometimes struggle to read the dials of some watches without the aid of spectacles. However, the Graham Chronofighter Vintage proved simple to read even without my bifocals.

Some of the dial elements of the Graham Chronofighter Vintage are quite contemporary. Indeed, the blue hue of the dial, the style of the baton-like indexes, the Arabic numerals at noon and the font used for the day-date display all brim with modernity. However, despite the seemingly disparate nature of these details, the design language is harmonious and all elements coalesce wonderfully.
The highly polished steel case measures 44mm in diameter but, somehow, it appears much smaller when worn. Graham has made subtle changes to the case of the Chronofighter and, as a result, improved its appearance.
The sapphire crystal is mildly domed and forms a flush union with the bezel. The bezel is concave, creating interesting shadows and delightfully toying with light. Interestingly, the case band is convex, according an agreeable contradistinction with the bezel above. The lugs sharply taper downwards and draw the strap close to the case, reinforcing the perception of neatness.
The brand’s decision to equip the Graham Chronofighter Vintage with its unique trigger system is likely to polarise opinion. Indeed, I accept that to some eyes the trigger may appear cumbersome. However, the Swiss watch company has modified the styling of this device for 2016, locating it closer to the case band and thereby conferring a tidier aspect. Personally, I found my thumb instinctively connected with the trigger system and I applaud its functionality. Furthermore, by locating the trigger on the left hand flank of the case, it does not impose its presence on the arm, allowing free motion of the wrist.

Positioned above the trigger, at 10 o’clock, is a push-piece which resets the chronograph registers.
The sumptuous blue leather strap encircled my wrist perfectly and accorded a sublime level of wearer comfort.
The Calibre G1747 self-winding movement is visible through the exhibition caseback. The oscillating mass is decorated with Côtes de Genève motif. Beneath the rotor some of the bridges are, once again, adorned with Geneva Waves while others feature perlage.
The balance has a frequency of 28,800 vph (4Hz) and includes an Incabloc shock absorber. The Swiss movement contains 25 jewels and has a power reserve of 48 hours.
Graham has not plagiarised the designs of other horological marques but conceived its own very distinctive and, in my opinion, handsome timepiece.

The dial lucidly converses with the wearer and the trigger is user-friendly, bestowing a superb tactile interface with the watch. Moreover, the trigger mitigates the time the wearer spends thinking about actuating the chronograph, or conversely, halting the stopwatch function.

The high quality construction of the Graham Chronofighter Vintage means its asking price of £3450 (RRP as at 22.6.2016) represents superb value for money.

The timepiece proved to be a stylish horological companion during its time in my possession. Its prepossessing blue colour-scheme proved ideal for pairing with jeans and casual shirts. Moreover, the watch evoked optimistic thoughts of blue skies on a summer’s day, a fitting notion for a pilot’s watch. The trigger, Graham’s ingenious idea, shows a notable dose of blue-sky thinking. Indeed, perhaps we should rename Eric Loth, ‘Mr Blue Sky’.
