Graham’s Silverstone RS (“RennSport”) collection is influenced by auto racing. One of the most striking models in the line is the Graham Silverstone RS Skeleton, a chronograph Breitling replica watches with a skeletonized dial, available in three color schemes.
The Graham Silverstone RS Skeleton combines polished and hand-drawn-strokes steel (for the case), ceramic (for the bezel), aluminum (for the knurled, colored ring under the bezel) and rubber (for the strap, which sports a distinctive tire-tread pattern). The case is 46 mm in diameter and features polished bevels on the lugs. The skeletonized dial has a bicompax arrangement, with two chronograph-counter subdials at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock, and offers a view into the cheap replica watch’s “engine,” Graham’s automatic Caliber G1790. The winding crown is secured by a bayonet system with a safety colored ring. The sapphire crystal has an inscribed Graham logo and boasts non-reflective treatment on both sides.
The owner of the Graham Silverstone RS Skeleton gets a dial-side view of the gear wheel and other parts of the shaded gray and rhodium-plated movement, which has a frequency of 28,800 vph, 29 jewels and a 46-hour power reserve. A porthole-like aperture in the caseback at 10 o’clock shows off the movement’s escapement and balance wheel. The movement also features decorative finishing and a rotor with hand-drawn strokes and a snailed external segment. Its balance bridge and plates are openworked.
The replica watches for sale is available in three “racing team” color schemes — red, green, and blue — with the colors used for the knurled aluminum ring, the chronograph hands and the racing stripe on the strap. Each version is limited to 250 pieces, and sells for $14,580.
