Second Home

We own an apartment near Zürich & are considering buying another apartment in Graubünden.
Our choice would be better (wider) if we could additionally consider apartments that can only be occupied as a first home (ie built after the Zweitwohnung initiative)
What obligations do we have to fulfill to have the apartment in Graubünden considered as out first home & our existing apartment near Zürich considered as out second home? Eg do we simply have to live a greater % of our time in Graubünden?

Who do we have to convince? Eg the Zurich or Graubünden tax authority? The Zurich or Graubünden Gemeinde?

Has anyone successfully managed this?

That would only be applied be for a student still living with his parents and studying elsewhere. Zurich will most probably fight to keep the OP on Zurich taxes and the OP will have to prove that his "life center/interests" are mainly in Graubünden. Quite a few factors will be considered.

I know plenty of adults who do just that.

Also, register you vehicles in Grigioni.
