Vintage comes of age with the Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd. Time to turn up the volume of the rock’ n’ roll attitude, shake the dust off the denim and bring out your inner maverick with the Graham Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd.
Four different watches, each produced in a limited edition of 250 pieces, derive their distinctive identity from aged metal cases. The inspiration palette for the new watch spans from 1940s military aircraft, to the gunmetal grey furniture at home in the hippest of Manhattan lofts.
This opens up a gripping storybook that invites the imagination to explore historical aviation milestones, the reach of vintage in the design world, and the love of turning yesterday into tomorrow. This message of edgy nostalgia, the DNA of the entire Chronofighter Vintage series, is underlined by riveted dials with a radial gradient. Ensuring the historic aviation inspiration remains on the radar screen, one reference has a picture of the British Royal Air Force’s Halifax aircraft stamped on the case back. The latest additions to the iconic Chronofighter family, with its signature stop-start trigger, are rebels with a very clear cause.
