Power Source

This Graham Chronofighter features a self-winding automatic movement with a caliber G1733 engine. With a power reserve of 48 hours, it may not be the best reserve on the market, but is quite decent in this luxury wristwatch.

The Good

This GMT offers wearers a creative, masculine design with a sleek sophistication not typically given to larger watches with push button and crown protrusions. The dial is a beautiful black with white Arabic numerals and hour markings. Below the 12 o’clock position above the “Graham” logo sits a beautiful calendar date window showing the day of the month.

One of the best features of this luxury piece are the two subdials at 3 and 9 — they shine with a silver-tone that is beautifully complementing to the stainless steel of the case, crown, dial hands, and bezel. The back of this watch is see-through and is protected by a Sapphire crystal front and back.

With a power reserve of 48 hours and a water resistance of 100 meters / 330 feet, you can use this watch as a 12 hour timekeeper, 24 hour timekeeper, a chronograph, and keep tabs on the date and subdials.

This Graham Chronofighter completes its beautifully dark look with a black alligator strap — with a great looking pattern and finish, this strap complements the dial, bezel, and crown cap.

The Bad

It would have been ideal for the power reserve to last a bit longer than 48 hours. If you have a skinny wrist, the 47mm case size may be a bit large for some men. It’s also pretty thick at 16.2mm.

Functionality

The Chronofighter is impressive in that the Swiss made self-winding automatic movement uses a very decent caliber G1733 engine, which has the power to continuously keep the functions of this watch moving with precision.

The water resistance is excellent and ensures your watch will not be ruined when immersed in shallow or free-falling water. In addition, the durability of the stainless steel case and bezel means drops won’t harm this piece.

Finally, the Sapphire crystal protecting this watch is scratch resistant and offers an incredible and easy to see view of the dial and through the transparent case backing.

The Highlights

The use of materials in this timepiece is excellent. The black dial with silver-tone accents shine wonderfully through the scratch resistant Sapphire crystal. The stainless steel bezel with a black Sapphire top ring showing 24 (GMT) markers are the perfect accent that complements the entire dial, case, and strap design.

The dial hands are certainly unique — the hour and minute hands are made of stainless steel and are filled with luminescent material. The second hand is thin and red in color. There is also an additional main dial hand (a fourth hand) that is skeletonized in the body of it with a red tip that is filled with luminescent material.

With the beautiful and classy calendar date window below the 12 o’clock position, there are also two subdials located on the main black dial. Located evenly at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock position, the subdials are finished in shining stainless steel. The 3 o’clock subdial is a 60 second function and features a white subdial hand — the 9 o’clock subdial is a 30 minute function and features a red subdial hand.

The inclusion of GMT in this watch is a great plus for men who prefer to have a 24 hour clock on hand in addition to their 12 hour traditional piece. The design ensures that both are displayed with accuracy and class.

The crown is a push / pull and a very unique and bold feature of this Graham watch. The crown and casing around it is made of stainless steel, but there is a unique flip cap covering the crown that Graham is known for.

The water resistant is also very excellent. Despite most watchmakers not being able to provide a great water resistance while having a transparent backing, Graham does — featuring a 100 meter / 330 feet water resistance, this Chronofighter GMT really comes through with quality construction.
