Graham SA was created in 1995 by Eric Loth, an ex-Swatch guy. To give the brand a sense of history he chose to pay homage to the inventor of the inventor of the wall chronograph: George Graham. That's one way of explaining it. The other is to say he set about creating an artificial sense of history and heritage, even going so far as to have the company web address as graham1695.com to make it look like a 1995 company has been making watches since 1695.Hello I can't seem to find a site saying they fabricated the history.. I've never seen a mushroom sell for thousands of dollars either.
Western Australian black truffles sell for $3000 per kilogram, the above-ground fruit of Tricholoma matsutake,which have the classic mushroom cap and stipe form, have been known to retail in Japan for $2000 a kilogram.
