Driving to win
Named after one the famous corners or curves on England's legendary Silverstone motor-racing track, this watch carries powerful connotations of daring feats, traditional skills, impeccable control, professional expertise and state-of-the-art technologies, united in an unstoppable quest for performance. A set of qualities bearing a remarkable resemblance to the spirit that drives Graham in making its masterpieces.
Issued in two limited series of 250 in steel and 250 in gold, this no-nonsense chronograph is distinguished by its sporty carbon fibre dial base and an impressive array of useful information. In addition to showing the hours, minutes and seconds, it sports 30-minute and 60-second chronograph counters, an outer tachometric scale (useful for calculating speed of travel over a given distance), a twin date aperture, as well as a GMT display in the centre indicated by a dedicated red pointer. Driven by the ultra-reliable Graham bi-compax chronograph movement, Calibre 1721 with a 42-hour power reserve, this is a watch that can definitely take the heat and knows all about endurance.
Where the rubber meets the road
The flyback function, which is much appreciated among pilots, is also a natural favourite with drivers since it avoids the need to stop, reset and start the chronograph, condensing these operations into one smooth and easy gesture. Clarity is the keynote of the dial design with its luminescent accents ensuring instant read-off reminiscent of the control panel on a sophisticated sports car… even when taking a fast bend in poor lighting…
Teamed with a sturdy black rubber strap featuring an attractive tyre-tread motif that clearly confirms its undeniable connection with the world of motor sports, the Grand Silverstone Woodcote is definitely on the fast track to successful performances.
