The bottoms on the dial representing the celestial bodies have been positioned in a way that the wearer could see their relative positions to one another such as a traditional planetarium does. Nonetheless, in this situation, only a small part of this solar system is in view, so perhaps that is why Graham originally called it a “planetarian?” If you consider the diamond and engraved tourbillon situation as sunlight, then it’s possible to see the elegant design with the Earth and its orbiting moon, as well as the red-colored world that represents Mars.The elliptical orbit of Mars relative to Earth and the Sun are exhibited through the trail lines on the dial. The Earth’s path doubles as either a Gregorian calendar in addition to Zodiac calendar. For you into the mood for the classic theme, the weeks on the dial are written in their own “original” Latin. Unlike the dark gray face of the first Orrery view, this Graham Geo.Graham Orrery Tourbillon 2017 edition has a blue face.The movement interior of the Graham Geo.Graham Orrery Tourbillon is the caliber G1800 Tourbillon Orrery which works at 3Hz (21,600bph) with a power reserve of three days. The watch case is big in 48mm broad (17.6mm thick) and is generated from 18k pink gold. Water-resistance is 50m… so have a light swim while knowing 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 believe the cost is exactly the same $330,000 as the first model.
The latest additions to the iconic Chronofighter family, with its signature stop-start trigger, are rebels with a very clear cause. Four different watches, each produced in a limited edition of 250, derive their distinctive identity from 44mm aged metal with grey PVD cases. A sophisticated accelerated aging process gives the old metal aspect to the steel case initially coated with dark grey PVD.
The inspiration palette for the new watch spans from 1940s military aircraft to the gunmetal grey furniture at home in the hippest of Manhattan lofts. This opens up a gripping storybook that invites the imagination to explore historical aviation milestones, the reach of vintage in the design world and the love of turning yesterday into tomorrow.
This message of edgy nostalgia, DNA of the entire Chronofighter Vintage series, is underlined by riveted dials with radial gradient and vintage colours, indexes and hands. Ensuring the historic aviation inspiration remains on the radar screen, one reference has a picture of the British Royal Air Force’s Halifax aircraft stamped on the case back, while the other three references have a see-through sapphire case back.
The Chronofighter Vintage Aircraft Ltd models are powered by the automatic chronograph movement Calibre G1747, with incabloc shock absorber. Beating at 28’800 A/h (4Hz), it offers a 48-hour power reserve and a day-date at 9 o’clock.
The watches are fitted with aged green or beige cotton canvas strap, or anthracite and blue denim strap, with titanium pin buckle.
