In this watch review, consider the model of the Swiss watch brand Graham Chronofighter Oversize. The first thing that is felt from a wristwatch is the presence of something English.

Review of Graham Chronofighter Oversize
The watch comes in several versions: Black Sahara, K2, Raptor, Amazonia and the Black Forest. Here we will consider two new models of the second generation: Black Sahara and K2.

Both Black Sahara and K2 models are made of black PVD steel with a width of 47 mm, but with different straps and dials.

The glass is made of sapphire with anti-reflective coating, the water resistance of the model is 100 meters.
The wristwatch has a 30-minute chronograph, and it works very simply. Graham developed two pushers to control the chronograph in the direction of 10 hours and in the crown for 9 hours. The button itself is at 8:00, but in its design, it presses the pusher, which is in the crown, it performs the functions of starting and stopping the chronograph. The pusher at 10:00 carries out the function of resetting the chronograph.
On these models of “Wildlife Chronographs”, the Graham watch brand decided to remove the 12-hour counter, making the chronograph only up to 30 minutes. In addition, the disk carries a telemetric scale, which runs along the edge of the dial. Contrasting Arabic hour markers help the set look more professional and, most importantly, clearly.
The attractive dials of Swiss watches Graham Chrono-fighter Oversize Black Sahara, K2, Raptor, Amazonia and the Black Forest are visually balanced and very legible due to the large arrows and the presence of luminescent composition. There is a window with a date between 8 and 9-hour markers.
