The spheres on the dial representing the celestial bodies are positioned in a manner that the wearer can view their relative positions to one another like a traditional planetarium does. Nonetheless, in this case, only a small portion of this solar system is in perspective, so maybe that is why Graham watches official website initially called it a “planetarian?” If you think of the diamond and engraved tourbillon case as sunlight, then it’s possible to see the elegant design with the Earth and its orbiting moon, in addition to the red-colored sphere that represents Mars.The elliptical orbit of Mars relative to Earth and the Sun are exhibited through the trail lines around the dial. The planet’s path doubles as both a Gregorian calendar in addition to Zodiac calendar. For you in the mood for the timeless theme, the months on the dial have been written in their “first” Latin. Unlike the dark gray face of the original Orrery view, this Graham Geo.Graham Orrery Tourbillon 2017 variant includes a blue face.The motion interior of the Graham Geo.Graham Orrery Tourbillon is your standard G1800 Tourbillon Orrery which works at 3Hz (21,600bph) using a power reserve of 3 days. The watch case is large in 48mm wide (17.6mm thick) and is produced from 18k pink gold. Water-resistance is 50m… so take a mild swim while understanding how far Mars is out of our blue planet. This reference 2GGBP. U01A Graham Geo.Graham Orrery Tourbillon watch will be limited to eight bits, and I feel the cost is the same $330,000 as the original model.
Some believe the rainbow leads to a pot of gold. Graham watches factory suggests carbon may be a more exciting destination. Its new Chronofighter Superlight Carbon watches integrate the inspiration of dynamic coloured Formula One tyres. The brand with petrol in its veins and style on the brain presents timepieces that fuse superlight carbon technology with supercharged looks.
The strong Graham affinity with motor racing is more than skin-deep. Sponsorship of the Brawn GP Formula One team from 2009 to 2011 preceded partnerships with the Swiss Porsche Cup, the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy, the Baja 1000, the GT Asia Series, the Spengler Cup, Silverstone circuit, the Swiss Gurnigel Hill Race and the Club Porsche Romand. The combination of carbon, a pillar of contemporary racing car prowess, and the head-turning tyre colours, accurately reflect these watches’ intrinsic union of appearance and performance. Unlike with the tyres, the straps’ functionality is weather-independent so their robust rubber composition is constant. It goes without saying that none of these pieces is for “softies”. Orange conveys anticipation, green action, and purple asserts itself confidently as the new red. With their integrated “Clous de Paris” pattern, these stylish, bold attachments are as out there as a pace car.
In racing, weight definitely does matter. In the Graham Chronofighter Superlight Carbon it does too. Weighing in at less than 100 grams each, these sporty timepieces are never slow off the grid. The case, trigger, bezel, dial and buckle are made of the innovative superlight carbon that’s become the 21st century hallmark of Formula One car construction. The resultant watches’ lightness could cause them to become forgotten; their distinctive design with the iconic trigger ensures that’s not going to happen.
