There is a certain charm to all things vintage that makes you want to turn up the volume of the rock’ n’ roll attitude, shake the dust off the denim and bring out the maverick inside, especially with the Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd.

Graham introduces four different watches, each produced in a limited edition of 250, derive their distinctive identity from aged metal cases. The inspiration palette for the new watch spans from 1940s military aircraft to the gunmetal grey furniture one would find in the hippest of Manhattan lofts.

This opens up a gripping storybook that invites the imagination to explore historical aviation milestones, the reach of vintage in the design world and the love of turning yesterday into tomorrow.

Riveted dials and the radial gradient underline the message of edgy nostalgia and the DNA of the entire Chronofighter Vintage series. Ensuring the historic aviation inspiration remains on the radar screen, one reference has a picture of the British Royal Air Force’s Halifax aircraft stamped on the case back. The latest additions to the iconic Chronofighter family, with its signature stop-start trigger, are rebels with a very clear cause.

The unique selling points is that the historical timepieces are inspired by watches used in Military Air Forces. Riveted dial with radial gradient and vintage colors, indexes and hands plus the aged steel with grey PVD case give added value. There is an RAF Halifax aircraft stamped on the case back (only 2CVAV.B17A) as well.
