From A Blog to Watch…
Graham’s automotive-themed watches tend to fall under its Silverstone model collection, and a new version for 2014 is this Graham Silverstone RS Skeleton Black & Gold. What is really new are the colors, but since we’ve never officially discussed the Silverstone RS Skeleton, I thought it would be an opportune time.
Specifically, I am talking about the Graham Silverstone RS Skeleton, which has a partially skeletonized dial where you can see the balance wheel and some of the gears on the face of the watch. I personally happen to find these types of dials interesting because you get a fully functional dial with most of the legibility you expect, with a view of the movement’s workings. I call this “partial skeletonization” and it really is the best of both worlds in my opinion. Then again, I can see how some people might get irritated by this style and merely want a dial to be all skeletonized or not at all. Just a difference of opinion.
As racing watches go, you have a 30 minute chronograph and the time with a subsidiary seconds dial. Around the bezel (which is black ceramic) is a tachymeter scale that adds “racing character” to the overall design. The dial is mostly dark gray with accents of black and rose gold. The hands are also rose gold and large, with lume-filled center areas that account for the healthy legibility, even though they could be a bit longer. The dial doesn’t have a date window–but honestly I don’t think anyone will miss it.
The movement inside the watch is the Graham caliber G1790 which I believe is produced for them by La Joux-Perret. It is an automatic movement with an 18k rose gold rotor and a power reserve of 46 hours while operating at 28,800 bph. I feel terrible for missing a picture of this, but at 10 o’clock on the side of the case there is actually a small circular sapphire crystal window to offer yet another view of the balance wheel from the side. So, that is pretty interesting in addition to the normal Silverstone RS case style.
The Graham Silverstone RS Skeleton case itself is a wide 46mm (water resistant to 100 meters) and is offered in black DLC-coated steel with some 18k rose gold accents, such as for the knurled center ring, crown, and chronograph pushers. Really, it is a way of adding gold to the watch without dramatically increasing the price. A similar version of this Silverstone RS Skeleton watch in black and red was released last year, but I prefer the black and gold colors myself–though that is just a personal preference.
