By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Geneva – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

This is the GRAHAM tribute to Sir Colin Chapman, famous car maker and automobile industry pioneer. This is also the success story of the Silverstone Stowe GMT chronograph. The unique timepiece pays tribute to the golden age of car racing and its virtuous spirit. A limited series of 500 the Silverstone Stowe GMT is on the road of legends.

No tie, no dinner jacket, no limousine. Today’s dress code is yellow and green. Gentlemen, please put your yellow and green racing suit on, jump in your car and line up on the grid or start your engines. Once the pistol fires, or once the flag drops, your eyes will witness true performance.

The Silverstone Stowe GMT carries powerful connotations to the race and dedication to a great champion: Sir Colin Chapman. Crucial to the automotive industry, his technical skills were commensurate with his numerous records. It was only natural that GRAHAM should develop a true wrist machine which carries impeccable control and state-of-art technology.

The Silverstone Stowe GMT is an impressive 48 mm steel chronograph which features carbon elements. The sporty black carbon dial is adorned with yellow numerals, chronograph and minutes counter’s hands. The watch also shows a double-disc date and a GMT function displayed by the central GMT hand and the green scale on the aluminum and carbon fiber bezel.

The Silverstone Stowe GMT also offers a sophisticated flyback function. It enables the user to reset the chronograph to zero without stopping it. After releasing the flyback pusher, the second hand will restart immediately from zero. The flyback function allows the user to start retiming quickly within one push of a button. It was a function originally used by pilots. The racing suit would not be complete without a special tire tread strap. The yellow inset on the strap repeats the dial motto of the Silverstone Stowe.

This watch knows all about endurance and that refers to Sir Colin Chapman’s great life achievements.
