GRAHAM CHRONOFIGHTER ultralight carbon skull red watch review
It’s one thing to break the boundaries of luxury fake watch design, but Graham has the talent to completely change the rules proven in its latest “Watch of the Week” release. The embodiment of this idea is the Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Skeleton Red watch, which is an excellent 47 mm timepiece with a red epoxy and black carbon fiber case and a complex hollow dial.
The Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Skeleton Red is definitely not a delicate watch, and it is not suitable for those who want to slip the movement into the cuff cleverly. Instead, the individual statement products produced by Graham really bring the “wow” element and bring the aesthetic effect of visual shock and mechanical shock.
This case is the obvious main attraction of Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Skeleton Red. The 47mm case is made of red dye epoxy resin and black carbon fiber, which looks almost fascinating. In fact, metal fibers are molded in the resin to form a matrix of almost red translucent color and shape, which is unique in each design. The resin is also designed with anti-ultraviolet additives to ensure that the color will not fade. The bezel, trademark crown handle and strap buckle are made of black 3k carbon fiber, which is light and durable. Overall, the weight of the watch is less than 100 grams.
The G1790 self-winding chronograph movement is housed in the Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Skeleton Red watch, which is based on the always reliable Valjoux 7750. The internal movement provides central hands for hours, minutes and chronograph seconds. The dual-hand chronograph layout is suitable for small seconds and 30-minute counters and has a power reserve of 48 hours. The 29 jewellery movements also guarantee a beating frequency of 28’800 beats per hour and are equipped with Incabloc shock absorbers, which provide excellent shock resistance.
The Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Skeleton Red watch shows the balance wheel and escapement through the excellent skeletonized dial, protected by scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and the Superluminova spade hands decorated in red to match the red resin. The black layered dial also complements the scene on the back of the smoked display case, where the contrasting black and rhodium-plated bridges are fixed by polished display screws. The hand-painted engraving beautifully completes the weight of the winding.
All in all, Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon Skeleton Red is an extraordinary work, and any admiration, complicated and distinctive timepiece lovers will feel lucky.
