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.

Crafted for extreme conditions, the watch was built for the adventurer, the explorer, and the unknown. Certainly the features on the Graham Chronofighter Sahara Watch were engineered for real life conditions that could benefit in real life saving results.
The trigger system, is crafted from a solid piece of hard carbon, and designed from a very direct machining process. This use of carbon results in a lever that is unique, sturdy and stiff, and enhances the usability of the device. The ceramic bezel is manufactured in black and is what provides the strength, durability and exquisite aesthetic look to the timepiece.
Manufactured and crafted to brave the elements, the watch has been designed with a calculated telemeter scale. This scale enables the watch to measure distances by the speed of sound. The chronograph starts when a visible event occurs, and stops with the sound reaches the observer, such examples of lightning, resulting in thunder. As the temperature influences the speed of sound, the watch engineers have built the watch calculations on 25 degrees C, which is the average temperature on Earth. The scale rim on the dial allows the distance to be measured in kilometers.
The watch features a 47mm wide case, not oversized and certainly built for rugged wear. Water resistant up to 100 meters, and large hands that are easily legible with the SuperLimiNova, the watch face makes it easy to read in all situations.
