The great George Graham was not only the namesake of the cylinder escapement from the eighteenth century, but was also said to be the inventor of the chronograph and may justifiably be called one of the most important men in the history of watchmaking. The Chronofighter models, whose timer functions are controled by an unusual thumb lever mechanism, commemorates this important invention.

The chronograph family keeps on growing now completed with the Swordfish chronograph, also available for lefties and outfitted with a very special visual: In this case it's the applied magnifying lenses over the two chronograph counters, whereby it is worth mentioning that the little crystals are each surrounded by a lavishly constructed bezel.

The King George saw Graham daring to create a true grande complication for the first time: a split-second chronograph with a minute repeater showing off what this amazing manufacturer is capable of.
