The finest watch-making artistry meets light engineering from the car industry. For the CHRONOFIGHTER OVERSIZE superlight, two exceptional companies, GRAHAM-LONDON and MANSORY have combined their skills, and now present their highly precise, yet ultra light timepiece.
The nanotube composite material 47mm housing doesn’t even get over the 100 gramme mark. And if that’s not enough – the “left-hand fast-action start/stop trigger“, typical of Graham watches, is made from ultra light black carbon fibre. This instinctive mechanism, activated by the thumbs, guarantees the highest level of precision with the most direct response to the chronograph functions.
Kourosh Mansory, CEO of MANSORY Holding & Design GmbH says: “Our co-operation with GRAHAM-LONDON” is a direct result of my many years’ friendship with Eric Loth, the founder and board member of GRAHAM-LONDON. His passion for sports cars and my enthusiasm for fine chronographs complement each other perfectly - the MANSORY CHRONOFIGHTER OVERSIZE superlight is impressive proof of this.”
Limited to 10 watches, the self-winding automatic chronograph developed by GRAHAM, is exclusively available from MANSORY or one of its world-wide sales partners.

GRAHAM-LONDON traces its origins to London clockmaker George Graham (1673-1751) who is responsible for many innovations in timekeeping. He invented the chronograph, the dead-beat cylinder escapement, the mercury pendulum to compensate for temperature differences. He also built the master clock for Greenwich Royal Observatory which defined time for most of the 18th century. GRAHAM-LONDON was resurrected in 1995 and is today a privately owned Anglo-Swiss watch company which designs and builds its own watches in its La Chaux-de-Fonds production facilities in Switzerland.
