With knowledge derived from centuries of watch making experience, GRAHAM has created a new timepiece meant to commemorate those who take on the world’s most extreme battles: the Navy SEALS.
Just released Sept. 1 is the Chronofighter Oversize Navy SEAL Foundation watch, a stunning and impeccably durable timepiece. It was created to withstand the same environments as the SEALs, while helping the families and support systems of those soldiers.
“Whether faced with scorching deserts, freezing Arctic landscapes, or hot and humid jungles, this GRAHAM timepiece has been tested and proven to endure,” describes a release from the company marking the Chronofighter’s release. And its design reflects its purpose; a digital camouflage pattern creates a low profile for the face, while a PVD case made from 47 mm steel keeps it all tightly together. Each aspect of the watch blends seamlessly together, aside from two notable points.
Between the 10 and 12 on the watch’s face, above GRAHAM’s insignia, is the Navy SEAL Foundation logo. On the sapphire crystal back, that logo again appears, but in front of the watch’s only colors: red, white and blue on a waving American flag.
The Navy SEAL Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to support U.S. Navy Seals, Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman, NSW support personnel and the families of each worldwide. Their comprehensive set of programs help ease the stress of adjusting to life as a part of the SEALs, including improving health and welfare, building and enhancing resiliency and providing support in case of injury, illness or loss.
The values of both the SEALS and the SEALS Foundation are those of courage, determination and precision – values that also lie at the heart of GRAHAM’s operations. It was from finding this like-minded approach to life and work, as well as a respect for the immense sacrifices made by the US’ special operations forces, that lead to the creation of this new timepiece.
“We were drawn to the Navy SEAL Foundation because of their excellent work supporting those who give so much to support others,” described Eric Loth, GRAHAM founder, in a release commemorating the watch’s introduction.
The Chronofighter features a 48-hour power reserve, black ceramic bezel, domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both faces and water resistance to depths up to 330 feet. Only 500 examples will be created, with the purchase of each guaranteeing a donation to the Navy SEAL Foundation.
