        Defined by distinction and sturdiness, Graham Chronofighter Oversize ‘Titanium SAS’, is a military inspired timepiece, SAS being the short name of ‘Special Air Service’, which follows the oversized sport watches trend. It features an imposing titanium case, measuring 47 mm in diameter that harmoniously completes the camouflage inspired dial, which provides immaculate time-legibility even in complete darkness. The distinctive dial is furthermore individualized by large polished stainless steel hour markers fitted with luminescent inlays and shaped as a ‘Stealth’ bomber.

        At the heart of this outstanding timepiece, bets the new automatic G1734 bicompax caliber that provides a respectable 42 hours power reserve, ensures continuous small seconds, and 30 minutes chronograph counter, positioned at 9 o’clock, date function, displayed through a small aperture positioned at 7 o’clock, and seconds function displayed in a counter located at 3 o’clock.

        The military-inspired design of the new Graham Chronofighter Oversize ‘Titanium SAS’ is enhanced by the SAS coat of arms and motto: ‘Who dares wins’ majestically rendered at 6 o’clock, the watch is also equipped with an eye-catching, chronograph oversized pusher mechanism located on the left side of the case, fairly accessible although protected by the sleeve. The timepiece is also equipped with a massif crown, a start/stop lever, and, intelligently integrated in the robust case construction, the rectangular-shaped reset-button; also the case-back is secured by 8 screws, making the case 100 meters watertight.

        The imposing architecture of the model, coupled with titanium’s considerable weight, enhances the military powerful appeal of the timepiece, which is, furthermore, completed by an optional black or camouflage hypoallergenic rubber strap. Produced in a limited edition of only 300 pieces, the charismatic Graham Chronofighter Oversize ‘Titanium SAS’ comes for a fair price of approximately $7,000.00.
