  This might be W&R favorite Graham release in sometime. Graham unveiled this watch in late November of last year. The bezel and vintage dial work extremely well together.

LIVING A LIFE OF A CERTAIN VINTAGE
Silverstone Vintage 30
  No trophies, no awards, no podium, only Gentlemen driving. With beautiful lines and shapes, the GRAHAM Silverstone Vintage 30 pays tribute to the origin of racing, to our passion for tracks and beautiful mechanics. Powered by an automatic bi-compax chronograph, the new Silverstone collection bears the colours of a certain vintage. GRAHAM makes one experience the legendary classic racing with new wrist machines which preserve the pure spirit of car technology and watch making refinement.
  Racing is something that you live, not just watch. We are not talking about racing as we call it today. We are talking about genuine racing. The spirit that led the late 19th century brilliant engineers in to create petrol-fuelled machines and race with them. A time when the pleasure to drive was stronger than any competition. The only focus was the track, the car and the sense of a job well done.
  In the beginning, the rules of racing were completely different from what they are nowadays. Can you imagine that the main criterion to be able to participate was to have a vehicle with at least three wheels! Cars and mechanics were at the centre, no matter the number of wheels.
Technical improvements were the priority for all. An incredible challenge at that time which was pure mechanics.
  Our traditional motorsport line has been designed and created in this frame of mind. The Silverstone Vintage 30 is streamlined and aesthetically refined to achieve genuine aerodynamics and technology. GRAHAM wanted to get back to racing origins and put its watches at the centre of the track. As carefully as the cars were built, the Silverstone Vintage 30 watch has been created according to the codes of vintage racing and with respect for each part. The “Clous de Paris” decorated bezel, the thin shaped hands and the beige, brown and off-white colours have been elaborately added to the watch. They reflect the desire to preserve the race spirit and primary values.
  The GRAHAM Silverstone Vintage 30 is in a non-competition race which rewards watch making savoir-faire and spectators.
This might be W&R favorite Graham release in sometime. Graham unveiled this watch in late November of last year. The bezel and vintage dial work extremely well together.
  Get rid of your horse-drawn carriage and experience a true lap with GRAHAM.
