Thanks to a complex and extraordinary machining process, the Chronofighter Oversize Carbon is a Graham standard high performance, super lightweight watch built to take a beating. From the shiny carbon bezel and dial to the plain carbon start/stop lever on the left side of the case, the specific machining employed in the crafting of the watch ensures enhanced stiffness and functionality.
Housed in an impressive 47mm carbon case, the sleek black carbon dial features lime green, Super-LumiNova on the hands and numerals for night time legibility; red chronograph markers and small second hands; and a graduated tachymeter scale to measure average speed over a specified distance with a reversed minute’s counter painted in white to indicate the starting point.
Boasting a long list of tech and design elements, a few additional noteworthy highlights of this progressive timepiece include: a caliber G1747 automatic chronograph; 25 jewels; Incabloc shock absorber; 48-hour power reserve; domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both faces; and a red rubber strap with “Clous de Paris” motif and black carbon fibre buckle.
