Graham Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art Ltd. Kelly, Lunar New Year

The Lunar New Year is approaching, and Graham has another winning girl in his signings. The concept of the retro-style aviator chronograph, its bold left-handed case, combined with the painted dial depicting the art of the nose is now the iconic style of the brand, and a new “baby” is coming soon. Her name is Kelly, she is Asian and wearing a red dress. This is the early hands-on practice of Graham Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art Ltd. Kelly.

Nose art is a decorative painting on the fuselage of an airplane. Its most common manifestation is related to the pictorial on the nose of World War II aircraft and military aircraft. Guys, let’s admit it, it’s cooler than the military identification number that recognizes aircraft… Graham specializes in making aviation-inspired watches, and trying to capture the charm of the 1940s, drew pictorial and its iconic Chronofighter on the dial .

Graham launched his successful nose art concept at Baselworld 2017 and launched a series of four posters: Sally, Anna, Lily and Nina. Merry made its debut at Christmas. It’s time for the charming Kelly to join the brand’s hot squad and become the focus of attention on the Chronofighter with the blue dial. Unveiled on the occasion of the Lunar New Year, Kelly is Asian. She is wearing a red dress with a dog beside her. This is the symbol of 2018 in the Chinese calendar. Legibility is not optimal, but it is bold (like all Grahams) and cool.

The 44 mm steel case is equipped with an instantly recognizable Chronofighter trigger to protect the knurled onion crown. This left lever allows the wearer to easily start and stop the chronograph with the thumb, which is the fastest of all fingers, even when wearing pilot gloves. The mushroom button at 11 allows the chronograph to be reset.

The exhibition back allows you to admire the movement decorated with Geneva stripes. Like the previous Nose Art Chronofighters, Kelly is powered by Graham Calibre G1747 based on the trusted ETA Valjoux 7750. The main force of this cam and lever drive runs at 4Hz and can store up to 48 hours of power reserve. In addition to time and timing functions, it also displays the day of the week and date at 9 o’clock through two rectangular windows.

A straight-cut navy blue calfskin strap with off-white hand stitching provides the finishing touch. luxury replica watch
