Graham Chronofighter Oversize Collection, which attracted attention with its unique chronograph pushers as well as its big and sleek designs, became the guest of our Hands On Corner with the recently added Black Arrow Blue Dial version.
The Black Arrow Series, which uses the same platform as other models in the Chronofighter Oversize Collection, is offered in a 47mm-diameter case. The stainless steel case, finished in black PVD coating, features the brand symbol Bomb Timer style chronograph pushers at the left side. The chronograph lever which is produced from black carbon in accordance with the general concept, is very solid and of good quality.
“The camouflage pattern dial of the model used blue tones this time. It is accompanied by hands and indexes designed in a matte black color, which is a very assertive image as it was in beige, green and gray models previously presented to the watch enthusiasts.”
There are scratch-resistant sapphire crystals with antireflection coating on both sides of the case. There is a plain bezel made of black ceramic around the curved front crystal. The model’s movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal display caseback fixed to the case with six screws. Graham Chronofighter Oversize Black Arrow Blue Dial comes with a water resistance rating of 100 meters, as in the other versions of the collection.
The camouflage pattern dial of the model used blue tones this time. It is accompanied by hands and indexes designed in a matte black color, which is a very assertive image as it was in beige, green and gray models previously presented to the watch enthusiasts. These details, which are consistent with the model’s black-tinted "tactical" image, successfully complete the overall composition with Super Luminova phosphor material, which is also preferred in anthracite tone.
Designed in Bi-Compax Chronograph layout, the dial has a chronograph minute counter at 6 o’clock and a small second sub-dial at 3 o’clock. The model’s date function can be read from a window positioned between 8 and 9 o’clock.
Thanks to the telemetric scale on the outside of the dial, the distance of any sound source to the position of the watch can also be measured. Silk Printing technique was utilized for the application of the camouflage pattern on the screen. Thanks to this technique which we can call it a kind of stencil print, the patterns on the scale have been applied very clearly.
The model is powered with the Graham Caliber Ref. G1747. 25 jewel self-winding and Bi-Compax chronograph movement beats at 28800vph and offers 48 hours of power reserve when fully wound. Caliber G1747 can be seen from the smoked sapphire display on the caseback.
Graham Chronofighter Oversize Black Arrow Blue Dial comes with a blue rubber strap designed to suit the overall concept. The strap, which features "Clous de Paris" patterns on the top side, is secured with a black DLC coated stainless steel pin buckle.
We would like to thank Şark Saatçilik for their great support and cooperation.
