History of Graham Watches

George Graham, a renowned watchmaker, was born in 1673 in Fleet Street, London, United Kingdom. His interest in innovation and the concept of timekeeping inspired him to invent a pendulum system from mercury that can read the time accurately and the first stopwatch. His passion and skills in watchmaking led him to the creation of Graham Watches in 1695.

Graham managed to create around 3,000 watches. Each of these has its unique serial number inscribed along with the branding at the back of the watch.

The brand became popular for over 100 years until it disappeared from the spotlight. But in 1995, 300 years after its foundation, a group of Swiss and British in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, the heart of Swiss watchmaking, revived the brand. For 25 years, and still counting, the success of Graham watches continues to reign in the industry of watchmaking.

The Fortress is a limited edition that has only 100 pieces available in the market. It comes in three colors: black, blue, and brown.

Its clean and neat design is the result of the proper placement of the chronograph, mono-pusher, and lone pusher. The chronograph and mono-pusher placed within the crown on the left flank offer a clean and neat design, while the lone pusher located on the right side makes the chronograph operational and highly intuitive.

If you prefer a simpler Graham watch in terms of overall design and structure, the Graham Fortress watch is a good option.

Graham Swordfish watch came from the winning entry of Graham’s design competition last 2001. With just one glimpse, you will notice how every detail of the watch is well-thought and full of creativity. Thus, it won everyone’s attention and became one of the most successful Graham watch models.

The Swordfish comes in four color options: black, bronze-black, bronze-green, and red. The alloy used in this watch is also similar to the materials used in the naval industry. It helps the overall appearance of the watch to become unique, timeless, and truly one of a kind.

How Much Do Graham Watches Cost?

There are Graham watches that cost below $10,000. But just like many other high-end brands, they also have more expensive watches that cost around $250,000.

You can find more affordable Graham watches around $2,500. These watches fall under the entry-level category. The Silverstone RS Racing watches may fall under this price range. Though it falls on the lower end of the Graham watches price range, they all still exemplify high-quality features and uniqueness, which you cannot feel with other brands of the same class.

On the other hand, you can consider the Tourbillon as the most expensive one. The Tourbillon with an open heart chronograph has a price of around $50,000, while the Orrery Tourbillon costs around $200,000. But as you can see, the design justifies its price range as it exemplifies an out-of-this-world look only the fine watchmaking quality of Graham can make.
