Graham Creates Sophisticated Tourbillograph Woodcote Watch

May 14, 2009
Graham has created a new timepiece named the Tourbillograph Woodcote. The watch, based on the brand’s renowned heritage, is characterized by a highly innovative design and technical sophistication.

The Graham Tourbillograph Woodcote watch represents an avant-garde machine with a revolutionizing Tourbillon.

The case of the new Graham watch measures 46 mm in diameter and is available in two versions - in polished 18k red gold or polished 18k red gold in combination with black PVD carbide on stainless steel.

Both versions incorporate a hot-forged carbon bezel. The case construction features red gold push-buttons positioned at 2 and 4 o’clock. They are embellished with “clous de Paris” motif for extra beauty and a better grip. The see-through case-back (with a flat sapphire crystal) is secured by six screws. The timepiece is 50-meter water-resistant.

The black galvanic dial uses carbon fibre for both 12-hour counter located at 6 o’clock and 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock. The hour markers are also crafted in 18K red gold. There is also a version of the dial featuring an 18K red gold external ring with minute markers.

The hours and minutes are indicated by white luminescent red gold hands. The chronograph seconds hand and the sweep seconds hand are crafted in red gold as well and feature a white luminescent tip with a red pointer for perfect readability. The 12-hour and 30-minute counters feature hands in bright red.

The face of the timepiece, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is shielded by a domed sapphire crystal provided with anti-reflective coating on the both sides.

The Graham watch accommodates the Calibre G1780 movement. The sophisticated movement provides the Tourbillon with chronograph function. It gives an advantage of a 42- hour power reserve. The movement boasts a high grade decoration. The oscillating weight and chronographs bridges are adorned with a sunburst pattern. The bridges and plates are circular-grained. The upper bridge of the Tourbillon is sculptured in 18K gold and secured with two polished screws, while the lower bridge is satin-finished.

The Graham Tourbillograph Woodcote watch is presented on an integrated black large-scale croco strap or integrated Graham embossed hypoallergenic black rubber strap. Both versions of the timepiece
are available in a limited edition of 50 pieces.
