My First Grail Watch:  Eric Loth My First Grail Watch

aBlogtoWatch (ABTW): Who are you, and what is your relationship to the watch industry?

Eric Loth (EL): I’m the founder of Graham watch dealers uk Replica SA. I grew up in le Locle and did my engineering studies in the region. La Chaux-de-Fonds, next to Le Locle, is now the home of Graham. The Watch valley is an area I know pretty well. And this is in this region that my passion for mechanics and precision also was born.

ABTW: When did your fascination with watches start?

EL: I started my working life at Rado. At that time, the brand was widely recognized for its creativity and avant-garde. Advanced and different materials were used such as sapphire and cemented carbide. It made me curious and fuelled my passion and fascination for new technology and complex material combinations. This first impetus led me to continue in that direction.

Let us take a look at why this collection of vintage-inspired watches is worthy of attention.

ABTW: Given those constraints, has anything else become your Grail?

EL: No. This is still my grail. I know I will have the opportunity to get them all – it is clear in my mind!

And I believe most individuals associate them with big and flashy game watches, not to mention also their signature – and honestly humongous – crown defense system, as found in their Chronofighter and Prodive models.However, unknown to many, Graham also has a line of more classically styled watches, under their Geo.Graham collection. “Geo” really has two meanings here. Primarily, Geo is brief for George, or instead George Graham, the English watchmaker that the newest gets its name from. Second, Geo also describes geology and that the watches in this collection are somewhat motivated by this subject — or rather astronomy, to be more precise.Last year, I was amazed by Graham’s Tourbillon Orrery watch. It featured a Christophe Claret-developed motion which has a tourbillon, but more importantly, shows the motion of the Moon, Earth and Mars around the Sun, which I thought was very cool and nearly romantic.The Tourbillon Orrery is really Graham’s second eye in this collection, the first being the Graham Geo.Graham The Moon. Not be confused with Omega’s Speedmaster Professional, the Graham Geo.Graham The Moon watch (debuted here) features a large retrograde moon phase display that is accurate to 122 decades, as it closely follows the legitimate moon cycle of 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 2.9 seconds — as opposed to the more ordinary 29.5 days, found on simpler moon phase watches. Along with the unique display, the Graham Geo.Graham The Moon watch also features a flying tourbillon which earns a complete rotation every 60 seconds and rotates on a ball bearing to substitute adjusting for sliding friction. This watch was confined to only 10 bits and featured an 18k pink gold case and blue dial.

Lately, Loth also considers, unlike so many today chasing the tech watch inventions, that it’s once again the individual element – humanity’s metaphysical appreciation of artwork – that will produce the watch industry endure the test of time. While Graham would seem to be the perfect match for the next high-tech “smart watch” with military purposes, Loth instead thinks that the value in cellular technology and watches aren’t always linked and that the true value of “wrist technologies” has not yet been discovered. In an intriguing sci-fi twist, he shows to us that he considers chip-implant cellular technology is going to be discovered and publicly available within the next 10 years. Anyone know any good chip improvement stocks?Eric Loth tells me that the Graham watch customer is one who has grown from the initial consumer point of “wanting to have a watch to help them fit in with everyone else.” The Graham clients are at a stage of succeeding in their private and professional lives in which they find the liberty to think for themselves and do not necessarily want to mix with their peers. He tells me that the Graham customer is a customer who now appreciates being distinct and expressing themselves personally as such through their watches.
