Graham Presents Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art ‘Kelly’ Watch Exclusive For Chinese New Year

Following the release of the Chronofighter with a ‘Merry’ pin-up last Christmas, Graham is launching another special watch model – the Graham Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art Ltd ‘Kelly’ Watch – exclusively for Chinese New Year.

The new timeteller features Chinese mythology marries with 1940s aviation glamour, merging culture with a nod to the past. In the face lies Kelly, a Chinese pin-up girl hand-painted with a canine companion to signify the year of the dog. And it’s not just by chance that dog is posing between three and four o’clock, two of this new year’s lucky numbers. Kelly’s figure-hugging cheongsam dress is in striking red, the perfect accompaniment to any lanterns or couplets that may cross the wearer’s path during festive celebrations.

This Swiss made Graham timepiece has an automatic chronograph G1747 movement, visible through the case back, and the family’s iconic trigger mechanism. Complementing the midnight blue dial is a hand-sewn blue calf-leather strap. Graham is creating just 100 pieces of this special watch, each signed off by Kelly at nine o’clock – the third of the year’s lucky numbers.
