GRAHAM Stowe Silverstone GMT yellow and green

The GRAHAM Silverstone Stowe GMT chronograph pays tribute to the golden age of car racing and its winning spirit. The brand introduces the Silverstone Stowe GMT yellow and green model in a limited series of 500.The GRAHAM Silverstone Stowe GMT is an impressive 48 mm steel chronograph which features carbon elements. The sporty black carbon dial is adorned with yellow numerals, chrono 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 aluminium and carbon fibre 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 originally used by pilots.

The racing suit would not be complete without a special tyre tread strap. The yellow inset on the strap repeats the dial motto of the Silverstone Stowe.

This watch knows all about endurance and will undoubtedly finish on the podium.
