Vintage Nose Art Pin-Ups Come To Life In Hong Kong

By now just about everyone who follows watches will be familiar with the concept Graham introduced for Baselworld this year. Their well-known Chronofighter has been chosen as the model to depict a series of Vintage 1940s pin-ups inspired by artwork painted on the nose or fuselage of World War II American aircraft.

Running on a G1747 automatic chronograph movement, the 44mm Graham Vintage Nose Art Chronofighter watches are limited to 100 pieces each. To promote the series Graham has dressed four real life models to depict those on the sun-brushed vintage dials: Nina, Sally, Lilly and Anna.

A potentially great idea, but there’s just one problem; the girls look better as fantasy nose artwork than they do as live models. The Pin-ups top to bottom: Sally, Nina, Anna and Lilly

But recently they were to be seen on the streets of Hong Kong promoting the watches. The pin-ups walked around wearing the Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art Limited Editions on their wrists and posed for pictures. Befroe you get too excited, there’s no word as yet whether the pin-ups will be coming to a town near you.
