For the Swiss Gurnigel Bergrennen mountain competition, Graham released two limited editions. We have not seen the connection between this mountain game and the name of the watch, but it is a very cool piece. Graham Silverstone RS GMT. It is named after the iconic British circuit. But Graham attended many racing events, such as the Isle of Man TT and the Swiss climb.
Graham Silverstone RS GMT is to commemorate the Swiss mountain competition from Dürrbach to Gurnigelbad. It sounds like two towns, but this is a 3.7 km uphill route with an average gradient of 8.4%. More than 200 cars and 50 motorcycles participated in the competition. Mountain climbing is the only type of competition in Switzerland, as competitions on the track have been banned since 1958. But back to the watch.
Graham Silverstone RS GMT is a fairly large fake watches. The 46 mm chronograph can be paired with a white rubber strap with white accents or a beige quilted leather strap with beige accents. The hour and minute hands match the color of the strap. In addition to a flyback chronograph, it also has Greenwich Mean Time, a tachymeter and a large date display at six o’clock.
All of this can be seen on the black and smoky open dial. Not a real skeleton dial, but close enough. It looks great, especially the flyback chronograph.
Graham actually has a special connection with the chronograph, because its origin can be traced back to a London watchmaker named George Graham (1673-1751). A man considered the father of modern watchmaking. When he invented the start-stop device, he was also involved in the early origins of the chronograph.
