Graham Chronofighter Sahara Watch

For anyone who is not familiar with the brand, Graham is a Swiss watch brand, with British roots. George Graham, a London clockmaker, is the father of modern watch making, recognized as the founder of the chronograph, because he invented the start and stop device of the chronograph. He is also connected with many other aspects of watch making, and he built the master clock for Greenwich Royal Observatory.

The brand itself was revived in 1995 and is held privately today by a Swiss watch company. The brand is home in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. So with a combination of British history and a brilliance of Swiss watch making, the brand has introduced the Chronofighter Sahara Watch, which has shown performance far and above technological parameters.

Graham Chronofighter Oversize LA Kings: A Glowing Tribute to Ice Hockey

Graham watches take their name after the illustrious George Graham (1674-1751) one of the pillars of British watches-making. Graham is credited with innovative creations in the field of watch-making. The invention of mercury pendulum that can compensate the effects of temperature variations, perhaps the greatest of his introductions, and the deadbeat escapement around in 1715 are key milestones in the life of the horologist. The launch of the Graham Chronofighter Oversize LA Kings to mark the Stanley Cup winning of 2012 by the Los Angeles Kings Ice Hockey team is certainly a glowing tribute to all sport which has made human life colorful the world over.
