Inside each Swordfish watch is a Swiss La Joux-Perret automatic chronograph movement - which is a base ETA that in this instance has been modified to have a full 12 hour chronograph with a subsidiary seconds hand built into the 12 hour counter. While not terribly easy to see, there is a running seconds hand. Graham calls this movement their caliber G1710, and it has a power reserve of about 48 hours. The rear of the watch has a tinted sapphire crystal that allows for a view of the darkened movement - in the right light. Despite the dark shades of the movement, there is an appreciable amount of decor on the movement surfaces.
Chances are that 90% (or more) of the time you are going to be using the Cambiano (or any Amadeo-cased piece) as a wrist watch. Nevertheless, it makes for a fun thing to show your friends, and adds a certain degree of interest and fun to the piece. Bovet is among a few brands which offer these "convertible" style watches - I did a little round-up article of others here a little while back.
