Those who choose a Graham watches ebay Replica Chronofigher chronograph are already assured of having a distinctive timepiece.

It’s well known that early pilots wore gloves to protect themselves against the freezing temperatures that prevailed outside cockpits that were protected from the elements either poorly or not at all. That’s why the crowns on the first pilot’s watches were oversized (sometimes called “onion” crowns) – a tradition that continues to this day. Graham, however, found a novel solution to the problem with the invention of a trigger mechanism that makes it possible to activate the chronograph function (hugely important for a pilot when flying by waypoints) with ease. Oversized chronograph counters and a large double-disc date also help to make the Chronofighter a supremely legible piece.

A dark green sunbrushed dial with radial gradient and a matching green calfskin strap round off the vintage look.
