Graham blazes trail with carbon Chronofighter

Graham has been showcasing its watchmaking prowess at Basel with the launch of a second technological timepiece that brings Superlight technology to its peak.

The Chronofighter Superlight Carbon is the first carbon fibre-made Chronofighter watch combining complex and unprecedented machining processes.

The start and stop lever on the left of the case, the renowned Graham signature, is made of plain carbon fibre, which provides the watch with more stiffness and enhanced usability. The watch is enhanced by a superlight black carbon nanotube composite case, carbon trigger, bezel, dial and buckle.

Graham says that creating a superlight carbon watch has required a “high level of ambition and extensive research”, pointing out that carbon is the preferred material in aeronautics, car racing, aerospace, sports and other domains that require lightness, strength and performance.

Graham traces its origins to London clockmaker George Graham who is considered as the father of modern watch making and built the master clock for Greenwich Royal Observatory. Graham watches in L Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
