The main feature of graham watches Chronofighter is the huge lever that can start and stop the chronograph. It is very large, but actually originated from the timers made by the World War II bombers (Christie sold an example in 2015). The bomb timers were built by companies such as Longines, Zenith and Geneva Globe. The crew released bombs from the bombers, wore them on their wrists, and were used by both sides during the conflict, such as the French, British and Italian Air Forces.
But 15 years is a long time, and Chronofighter has become bigger, more outrageous and ridiculous. Fortunately, Graham returned to the 15th anniversary with Chronofighter Vintage. The lever on the timer button (the start and stop buttons are coaxial with the crown) is similar to the lever on the World War II bomb timer, while the case is 44 mm (although larger than the original 43 mm in 2001).

Chronofighter Vintage has four dial variants, all made of stainless steel. Although the dial is legible, the dial still contains information, including date and date, and a small dial that has passed minutes and constant seconds. Each version also offers 15 limited editions, numbered on the dial, and at the six o'clock position on the sub-dial to distinguish between the rings of the British and American Air Force during World War II. All versions are powered by the G1747 movement, which was actually modified by the Valjoux 7750 with coaxial buttons on the crown.
Since the bomber personnel wore thick gloves, the oversized lever was mounted on the button of the bomb timer to make it easy to use.

The second hand of these bomb timers can move forwards and backwards, and the counterclockwise cheap luxury watches function is equivalent to counting down from releasing the bomb to hitting the target. Graham equipped the Chronofighter, which was first introduced in 2001, with leverage. This caused a sensation - Graham was a new but cool independent brand named after a 17th-century British watchmaker - and was widely copied. The bridge, which caused traffic congestion, consisted of several people and grew several blocks, and these spectators just left the nearby Crystal Palace football match. With the help of passers-by, although only Daniels was on board, the two got enough power to let the chassis roll.

More importantly, Mr. Newman is one of Daniels' most trusted friends – the watchmaker has appointed Mr. Newman as Chairman of the George Daniels Education Trust, making this former building surveyor the primary guardian of the Daniels legacy. Mr. Newman has long retired from his career and is now fully responsible for this trust. Most of the trust fund's considerable income is used to fund education, which is a business in Daniels' heart.Just a few weeks before the other major Daniels sale of the year, when the Grand Complication sold in May for 2.42m Swiss francs, or about US$2.48m, I had the privilege to spend some time with Mr Newman in London. It was a fascinating and lengthy deep dive into Daniels’ life and work, as well as the ongoing activities of the trust.

I’ve split the interview into two parts: the first covers Daniels himself and the friendship they shared, as well as the co-axial escapement and Daniels’ love for cars. The second, to be published next week, discusses the trust, Roger Smith, and the growing appreciation of high-end English best swiss replica watches watchmaking.



I just had dinner with Gilles Bremont, and Giles Bremont is half the company's founder. Bremont is an emerging British brand specializing in military pilot watches. Previously, I found their watches expensive, but after careful inspection, I still convinced. The work of the case is particularly impressive – the case is hardened steel (2000 Vickers hardness, more than ceramic, roughly the same sapphire). An interesting form and construction. This is a sandwich with an aluminum centerband that can be anodized in a variety of colors, and orange is the most eye-catching. Of course, Bremont is not the only company that makes military pilot watches, and IWC is known for its "top-notch" - Breitling is also working hard. Military links are real and interesting. They made watches for various squadrons and defense companies, including the ejection seat manufacturer Martin Baker. The latest watch received was the operator of the US Air Force B-52 Stratofortress strategic bomber.

As with all Bremont timepieces, the AIRCO range is constructed using Bremont’s technical three piece ‘Trip-Tick®’ cases which are produced at the company’s facilities in the UK, housing the smaller but beautifully finished chronometer rated BE-92AE movement.A natural extension to the range for 2018 also sees the MACH 1 and MACH 2 available in white dial variants. Similar in design to its dark-dialled counterpart, the MACH 1 with satin steel case now boasts a red second hand presenting a distinctive contrast against the white dial. The design has quite a military feel to it, particularly with the vintage C3 lume on the numerals and teamed with a bremont kingsman watch brown vintage leather strap.
