Silverstone Stowe GMT Red & Green

A racing line

The Watch Quote™ - June 15th, 2010

This impressive racing timepiece is decidedly dedicated to breathless lives and speed addicts. A specific streamlined design and highly-specialized features make the Silverstone Stowe Racing line unique. Graham-London’s knack for performance led to the creation of these beautiful bi-compax chronographs which features tachymeter and GMT functions.

The harmony of the different versions dedicated to traditional racing colours and its name Stowe refer to a corner of the Silverstone circuit. They have been chosen to pay tribute to racing events of the 60s.

This impressive 48 mm steel case watch is a true racing machine and is limited to 250 pieces for each dial version. It was named after a right-angled sharp turn of the Silverstone Circuit, the Stowe Corner. Every single detail exudes the atmosphere of speed and adrenaline. First of all the watch offers a sophisticated Flyback mechanism enabling the user to reset the chronograph to zero without stopping it first. After releasing the Flyback pusher, the seconds hand will restart immediately from zero. The Flyback function allows the user to re-start timing quickly with one push of a button.

This feature was originally used by pilots to time the consecutive legs of a flight plan without losing time for stopping the watch each time.

The black PVD case features a black concave bezel made of carbon fibre, contrasting with a red or green ring indicating a second time zone also called GMT function. The crown is secured by an additional hexagonal bolt, whereas the oval pushers for the chronograph controls bear the same grip surface as the pedals of a racing car.

To provide the best contrast, the same as for racing cars who can be spotted easily on the track thanks to distinctive colours, the Silverstone Stowe models sport a unique racing colour on the rim of the minute counter and the second time zone.

The GMT function enables the simultaneous reading of two time zones. It can be adjusted in steps of one hour independently from the regular hour hand. A tachymeter scale has been added to provide even more functionality to this already dynamic time instrument, offering a sophisticated function which enables to measure average speed over a certain distance.

The racing suit would not be complete without a special “tyre tread pattern” strap. The red or green inset on the strap repeats the dial colour scheme of the Silverstone Stowe.
