A Graham Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art Ltd redefines Asian Fusion for Chinese New Year

GRAHAM Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art Ltd Kelly 800x600Chinese mythology mingles with 1940s aviation glamour in the hands of the new Graham Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art Ltd – Kelly. Classy Kelly is unsurprisingly never alone. The faithful friend of this hand-painted pin-up lady is of the canine kind. What else in the year of the dog? And it’s not just by chance that he’s hanging out between three and four o’clock, two of this new year’s lucky numbers.


Kelly’s figure-hugging cheongsam dress is in striking red, the perfect accompaniment to any lanterns or couplets that may cross the wearer’s path during festive celebrations.


This Swiss made Graham timepiece has an automatic chronograph G1747 movement, visible through the case back, and the family’s iconic trigger mechanism. Complementing the midnight blue dial is a hand-sewn blue calf-leather strap. Graham is creating just 100 pieces of this special watch, each signed off by Kelly at nine o’clock. Correct, that’s the third of the year’s lucky numbers.
