G1733 automatic chronograph movement
We all know that technical prowess makes the world go round. Don’t we? Let’s see what this Swiss made timepiece contributes to that assumption. The A G1733 automatic chronograph movement makes the two worlds of this timepiece go round – simultaneously. Firstly the dark sunbrushed dials with a radial gradient capture a wide range of shades to show off Superluminova detail, snailed counters and a rhodiated ring. Secondly the mono-directional rotation bezel, with 24 positions and a large double-disk date at 12 o’clock, are travel essentials in modern timekeeping terms. Furthermore a boxlock mechanism adds an appealing, slow, tick-tock sound to the ceramic bezel’s motion. The construction of the trigger, combining a co-axial crown and push button certainly do underline the statement of technical complexity. A see-through case back ads to the instrument character of the overall look by revealing the movement’s most intimate secrets. This watch is designed for real and aspiring globetrotters everywhere.
A little bit of Graham’s history
Graham traces its origins to London clockmaker George Graham (1673-1751) who is considered as the father of modern watch making and the inventor of the start and stop device of the chronograph, the dead-beat and cylinder escapements, to name a few. He also built the master clock for Greenwich Royal Observatory which timed the majority of the achievements by the 18th century astronomers and sailors and lots of measuring instruments for scientists. Graham SA was created in 1995 and develops atypical watches in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
