GRAHAM Chronofighter Oversize Superlight GT Asia Limited Edition
The GT Asia race series is held each year at the Guia circuit, Macau. Attracting hundreds of thousands of people from China and surrounding Asian countries, the Macau GP is the place to be for racing and beautiful show lovers. GRAHAM revealed the Chronofighter Oversize Superlight GT Asia, a new limited edition timepiece that celebrated its role as Official Timekeeper of the GT Asia Series.
“The GT Asia Series is an exceptional event which enthrals thousands of racing enthusiasts,” said Eric Loth, Graham CEO. “We are proud to race alongside great champions and partners. This year especially we could not miss the season without bringing our watch making skills to the highest level of performance to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Macau Grand Prix. The result is our Chronofighter Oversize Superlight GT Asia showing what mechanics and motorsport are all about.”
With the new Chronofighter Oversize Superlight GT Asia, GRAHAM devotes its watch making and motorsport expertise to this international competition. To put a successful mark to the Season finale, the limited edition of 88 pieces features a new lightweight concept case made of carbon nanotubes and bears bright colours and track codes. The Chronofighter Oversize Superlight GT Asia presented at the Macau GP to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the prestigious Macau Grand Prix from 15th to 17th November.
The limited edition Chronofighter Oversize Superlight GT Asia is a new concept watch dedicated to speed, adrenaline and advanced technology. The start and stop lever on the left of the case, the renowned GRAHAM signature, is made of plain carbon and results from a very specific machining process.

The black ceramic bezel gives the watch its strength and shining personality.
Enhanced with a lightweight black carbon nanotube composite case, the highly shock absorbing watch weighs less than 100g.
The new Superlight chronograph facilitates the measurement of speed thanks to a tachymeter scale and a reversed minute’s counter with a yellow painted indicator to show the starting point. The function emphasizes intuitive and immediate reading. The integrated red rubber strap with “Clous de Paris” decoration brings the final touch of punch to move forward through racing conditions.
