Graham - Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Tourbillograph

Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Tourbillograph

This watch combines an automatic column-wheel chronograph-tourbillon calibre with fast-lane carbon technology.

The Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Tourbillograph is a 100-piece limited edition that marks the 10th anniversary of Graham’s very first Tourbillograph.    

This black timepiece has a 47 mm superlight carbon composite case. A carbon trigger, bezel, dial and buckle, as well as a tourbillon cage weighing just 0.485 g, contribute to the Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Tourbillograph being less than 100 g. The black carbon dial has white SuperLumiNova coated numerals and golden counter rings and hands.

In performance terms, details of the G1780 movement such as Incabloc® shock absorbers, black low-friction coating on the column wheel, an oscillating mass with ceramic coating and anti-magnetism are signatures of staying power. 

The progressive integration of tourbillon tradition, steeped in history, into a reliably sporty watch is mirrored by the watch’s entire design language. Two patented inventions were made in the process. First, the offset construction and the open cage of the Tourbillon allow other wheels of the movement to intersect with the Tourbillon’s orbital plane. This in turn allows a wider opening in the dial to see the device at work and integrates it completely into the movement. The inventors have named this design cintré. The second is the Tourbillon which rotates between two characteristic bridges - with red gold upper bridge - designed for rigidity in a bent shape which is in the best tradition of English high precision timepieces of the 18th century. It makes the Tourbillon of the Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Tourbillograph more rugged and reliable than a Tourbillon volant or flying Tourbillon only mounted on one side.

The movement is finished with perlages, Geneva stripes, manually chamfered and polished edges and has a black gold skeletonised rotor with 18K solid gold oscillating weight.

The black rubber reset pusher has a patterned Clous de Paris and easy to grip surface, and the integrated black rubber strap also features the “Clous de Paris” motif.
