Extremely well known as "the father of the chronograph", George Graham (1673-1751) has also been the man who had great ideas and invented the first wall chronograph or mercury pendulum.
Commissioned by the Greenwich Royal Observatory to create the master watch used by the astronomers, Graham became the first and great watchmaker of eighteenth century named by the Royal society. To continue with this spirit of extraordinary innovations and technical ability, Graham is nowadays a contemporary firm of watches dedicated to those who are enthusiastic about mechanic arts.
Open minded and with a great interest for interchanges among people working on the same field, Graham had undoubtedly approved the Swiss idea of re-establishing the British traditions of high watchmaking and recovered its rich patrimony.
The "British brand made in Switzerland" creates amazing wrist watches giving special attention to the design as well as the functions of the watch.
The Graham watches evoke a powerful fascination among experts and collectors who are moved by aesthetically funny objects, which combine exclusivity, originality and vanguard together with the excellence of traditional knowledge.
