On 9-10 September 2017, the 200 racing cars and 50 motorbikes revving up for the Gurnigel Bergrennen hill climb, Switzerland’s oldest motorsport race, put their time in the hands of Graham in a long-term partnership. The brand has been named Official Timekeeper and Presenting Sponsor of the prestigious 3,743-metre race with its 17 bends and gradients of up to 12.6%.
Graham is well qualified for its role, thanks to various cooperations ranging from the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT) to the GT Asia. The company’s founder Eric Loth also has a passion for cars that extends from engineering expertise to driving in races such as the Swiss Porsche Cup and the Gurnigel Bergrennen. As a brand that likes to stand out from the crowd, Graham tt watch for sale Replica was particularly attracted to involvement in an iconic road race in a country where circuit races are forbidden.
The spheres on the dial representing the celestial bodies are positioned in a manner that the wearer could view their relative positions to one another like a conventional planetarium does. However, in this situation, only a little portion of this solar system is in perspective, so perhaps that is why Graham originally called it a “planetarian?” If you think of the diamond and engraved tourbillon situation as sunlight, then you can see the elegant layout with the Earth and its own orbiting moon, in addition to the red-colored world that symbolizes Mars.The elliptical orbit of Mars relative to Earth and the Sun are exhibited through the trail lines around the dial. The Earth’s route doubles as both a Gregorian calendar in addition to Zodiac calendar. For you in the mood for the classic theme, the months on the dial are composed in their “first” Latin. Unlike the dark grey face of the first Orrery watch, this Graham Geo.Graham Orrery Tourbillon 2017 edition has a blue face.The movement interior of this Graham Geo.Graham Orrery Tourbillon is your caliber G1800 Tourbillon Orrery which works at 3Hz (21,600bph) with a power reserve of 3 days. The watch case is large at 48mm broad (17.6mm thick) and is produced from 18k pink stone. Water-resistance is 50m… so take a light swim while understanding how far Mars is out of our blue planet. This reference 2GGBP. U01A Graham Geo.Graham Orrery Tourbillon watch is going to probably be limited to eight bits, and I feel the cost is the same $330,000 as the original model.
