With the Silverstone Time Zone, Graham has decided to go into complications. Not the kind of complication you would imagine though. Automatic column wheel chronograph, flyback, rattrapante, big date, even sport’s tourbillon, we have done it all.

We had to think hard to imagine what would be the most difficult challenge for our designers. And guess what we came up with. Create a small, minimalistic and elegant watch.

It took a lot of effort to condense all of Graham’s strength, DNA and know-how into our first small-scale watch. One that is one hundred percent a Graham. Because we don’t normally do small. Small, that is, in comparison to other Graham watches.

But we did it. The Silverstone Time Zone has it all in a thin 42 mm case: Automatic movement, hours, minutes, central second, and date. It even sports a big GMT function, because we know that Graham lovers are all over what has become a “small” world. Minimalistic, and practical.

But old habits do die hard. For example the numerals on the dial. A big 6 and a big 12 popped out. Wasn’t the brief to design a small watch, Mr. Designer? Well actually, Graham Designer is right. These numerals help when it comes to reading time, and they are too typically Graham not to have them. Pure Graham DNA. Just like the refinement of colored stitches on the bracelet. Elegant and casual.

Main features include:
42 mm steel case. Calibre G1714, automatic self-winding movement, 21 jewels, 28’800 A/h (4Hz), Incabloc shock absorber, 42 hours power reserve, domed sapphire crystal with double-sided anti-reflective coating, see-through sapphire case back and leather strap.

Wow, such a very expensive luxury sports wristwatch. I like the color combination; the design was totally amazing!

Another masterpiece that we shouldn’t miss. I really wanted to own a luxury watch but Am thinking of the budget, I could not afford it. That’s a reality.

Conceived originally for pilots to follow routes given as a function of heading, speed and time, the fly back function allows to reset and restart the stopwatch in one go and without stopping it first.

Pilots don’t have the time to stop, reset and restart their chronograph on each turn. Neither do racers want to do this each lap.

This is the first time I saw a 3 tone combination watch. Its not really attractive. I guess it only fits to the grand pix racers.

This is a small, minimalistic and elegant watch, not one of those flashy models with big features.

It looks more like a regular wrist watch to me, yes its classy because of the brand and markings but the design like missing something.

It looks very elegant and definitely will impress any people who wears a watch and amazed those who don’t wear one.
