Graham praises the 10th commemoration of its Tourbillograph, a chronograph/tourbillon combo housed in the brand’s foundation Chronofighter case. With its impressive 47mm measurements, the heaviness of the case has been significantly helped with the consolidation of a carbon case. A restricted release of 10 pieces, the dial of the Superlight Carbon Tourbillograph plays with a dark and brilliant tone scheme.

Black Carbon Case

This tenth commemoration version of the Tourbillograph has a place with Graham’s Chronofighter Superlight group of carbon case watches. All things considered, the brand’s smash hit model, the particular characteristic of the Chronofighter is the chrono trigger switch on the left half of the case.

A conventional complication on board

The combination of a lively chronograph with a customary tourbillon escapement isn’t new. Numerous brands – like Audemars Piguet , TAG Heuer , Zenith  and more – have accepted this combo. Graham’s Tourbillograph grandstands the tourbillon in an outstandingly enormous gap somewhere in the range of 4 and 5 o’clock and its development is ensured by two licenses. The offset development and the open pen of the tourbillon (weighing simply 0.485g) permits a perspective on other wheels of the development, which cross with the orbital plane of the escapement. The two extensions over the tourbillon/little seconds have a twisted shape to improve unbending nature and are ‘acquired’ from the custom of 18th-century English accuracy watches. The thought behind the 18k red gold extensions is to meet the tourbillon with a more tough setting with regards to the lively idea of the watch.

The 30-minute chrono counter possesses a more customary situation at 9 o’clock and, similar to the tourbillon gap with its outside little seconds counter, includes a brilliant edge. The numerals, with a conspicuous Arabic number 12, are covered with white Super-LumiNova, just like the inside of the brilliant hour and moment hands. The focal seconds hand is stained in white.

The gold and dark shading plan of the dial advances toward the development with its dark gold skeletonised rotor with a 18k strong gold wavering weight. The development is done with perlage, Geneva stripes and physically chamfered and cleaned edges.
