The Silverstone Stowe GMT carries powerful connotations to the race and dedication to a great champion: Sir Colin Chapman. Crucial to the automotive industry, his technical skills were commensurate with his numerous records. It was only natural that GRAHAM should develop a true wrist machine which carries impeccable control and state-of-art technology.
The Silverstone Stowe GMT is an impressive 48 mm steel chronograph which features carbon elements. The sporty black carbon dial is adorned with yellow numerals, chronograph and minutes counter’s hands. The watch also shows a double-disc date and a GMT function displayed by the central GMT hand and the green scale on the aluminum and carbon fiber bezel.
The Silverstone Stowe GMT also offers a sophisticated flyback function. It enables the user to reset the chronograph to zero without stopping it. After releasing the flyback pusher, the second hand will restart immediately from zero. The flyback function allows the user to start retiming quickly within one push of a button. It was a function originally used by pilots.
The racing suit would not be complete without a special tire tread strap. The yellow inset on the strap repeats the dial motto of the Silverstone Stowe.
This watch knows all about endurance and that refers to Sir Colin Chapman’s great life achievements.

GRAHAM-LONDON traces its origins to London clockmaker George Graham (1673-1751) who is responsible for many innovations in timekeeping. He invented the chronograph, the dead-beat cylinder escapement, and the mercury pendulum to compensate for temperature differences. He also built the master clock for Greenwich Royal Observatory which defined time for most of the 18th century. GRAHAM-LONDON was resurrected in 1995 and is today a privately owned Anglo-Swiss watch company which designs and builds its own watches in its La Chaux-de-Fonds production facilities in Switzerland.
