Graham gives new ultralight watches a test drive with new F1-inspired pieces

Graham – Chronofighter Superlight Carbon

Graham watchmakers has unveiled its latest line of ultralight carbon fiber watches, which takes inspiration from the vibrant colours and fast pace of Formula One racing. 

The Chronofighter Superlight Carbon family draws inspiration from the coloured tyres found in F1, with the 47mm pieces sporting bright straps.

Graham and motor sports isn’t an unusual combination either; the company previously held sponsorship of the Brawn GP Formula One team from 2009 to 2011.

The watch itself sports an entirely carbon case, lugs and iconic Graham trigger crown. Within the sizable carbon piece is a G1747 automatic chronograph movement, allowing for the hours, minutes and seconds, as well as a date window at 8 o’clock and sub dials at 3 and 6 o’clock. The movement also boasts a 48-hour power reserve.

“Weighing in at less than 100 grams each, these sporty timepieces are never slow off the grid.” explains the watchmaker. “The case, trigger, bezel, dial and buckle are made of the innovative superlight carbon that’s become the 21st century hallmark of Formula One car construction.”

The dial comes with purple, orange or green engravings around the diameter, along with a sporty rubber strap in the respective colour.

Graham also previously had partnerships with the Swiss Porsche Cup, the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy, the Baja 1000, the GT Asia Series, the Spengler Cup, Silverstone circuit, the Swiss Gurnigel Hill Race and the Club Porsche Romand.
