The Fortress - Reheating Something Special From Graham

I recently saw some of the newer Graham pieces "up close and personal".

And one of my favorites is the Graham Fortress.  

As you can imagine, COVID and the cancellation of shows has made it challenging to see a watch up close and in person. But now having seen it "face to face", I have to say that the Graham Fortress is a bit special.

The case is of stainless steel, and measures 47 mm in diameter. The movement is Graham's G1750, which is an automatic monophush chronograph.

The Fortress is limited to 100 pieces. Although I saw one model on a brown/cognac strap, I believe that the "default" strap is black with beige stitching.
