Swiss-Anglo watchmaker Graham-London is returning to the Isle of Man as the official timekeeper of the Tourist Trophy. Known to motorcycle racing enthusiasts the world over, the TT is one of the most iconic motorbike races in the world, taking place on the independent British isle at speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour.
To commemorate this year's running, Graham-London has released a limited run of special-edition Chronofighter timepieces. Each packs a Calibre G1734 automatic movement with built-in shock absorption into a giant 47-mm PVD-coated stainless steel case, a galvanized dial featuring a 30-minute stopwatch counter styled after a 30-mph speed limit road sign, with the second dial bearing the Triskelion, the Manx coat of arms. It also features a domed, double-anti-reflective sapphire crystal, date indicator, non-slip guard and the fast-action actuator. Only 211 examples will be made, 18 of which will be awarded to the race winners in each of the categories.
