Show your stand in one of the world’s most heated political topics with this limited edition timepiece.
One of the biggest topics in the news lately is that of Great Britain leaving the European Union, a complicated and confusing process known as ‘Brexit’. Who would think that this would be the inspiration for a wristwatch, but someone at Graham watches clearly has a sense of humour, as that’s exactly what they have made, a Brexit watch.
From pomp to punk, the UK has always steered away from black and white perspectives. The Graham Chronofighter Vintage UK shows this spirit in its true colours, in this case, those of the union jack flag. The timely Swiss watch with a British heritage addresses Brexit with heart-felt honesty – by adding a question mark.
A red, white and blue painted dial flags up a mood of familiarity with a twist on this automatic chronograph with a day-date display. At first sight, the red and white stripes are boldly patriotic, yet a concertina effect lets through more blue than usual.
The iconic Graham Chronofighter trigger mechanism on the left-hand side enables a fast-action start/stop – a Brexit negotiator’s dream. The eye-catching timepiece comes with a blue calf leather strap with red and white stitching. A brown alternative is available for a stronger nostalgic statement.
Chronofighter Vintage – in British colours
The actual base for this UK edition is the Chronofighter Vintage watch, so it gets all the mod cons like Graham’s calibre G1747, based on an ETA movement that runs at 4Hz for 48 hours before needing a rewind. The watch features a 30-minute chronograph operated via one pusher, as well as a day-date display.
The movement also has 25 jewels, Incabloc protection and is certified Chronofiable. The case is a hefty 44mm in diameter and made of steel. Water resistance is 100m.
The Graham Chronofighter Vintage UK is a non-negotiable limited edition of 100 pieces.
