Boutique British brand Farer has released their first series of stylish manual-winding watches. Featuring a thin, sophisticated 37 mm cushion case and an ETA (Peseux) 7001 movement, this collection exhibits Farer’s most complex, multi layered dial designs to date.
Having made their debut in 2016, Farer names their watches after iconic British explorers. The new hand-cranked models are named after three eminent figures - Lady Hester Stanhope (English socialite and adventurer), Henry Hudson (English Sea Explorer and navigator) and Henry Lansdell (priest and Royal Geographical explorer).
All three models are fitted with dials featuring bold colours and contrasting textures, giving it a unique and striking appearance. The Stanhope has a two layered-dial with an off-white textured surface sitting on dark blue base layer that is visible along the fringes and in the small seconds sub-dial placed at 6 o’clock. Arabic numerals 3, 9 and 12 shares space with raised indices to mark the hours.
The iridescent sea-blue stepped dial of the Hudson has a sunburst design with prominent indices and a navy blue small seconds counter at 6. The Lansdell has a white dial with a striped sunburst-like pattern and cut-outs displaying a grooved green disk underneath.
All three models use a well-designed 37-mm-wide stainless steel cushion case with a slim bezel and a double domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal and a stainless steel crown with a little bronze insert carrying the brand’s logo.
The watch is powered by ETA (Peseux) 7001 top grade, hand-wound movement, visible thanks to the mineral crystal exhibition case back. Embellished with Geneva Stripes and blue screws, this 17 jewel movement is equipped with an Incabloc shock system and power reserve of 42 hours and has an escapement that beats at 3 Hz (21,600 vph).
Farer’s new collection is exclusively available from their website and is priced at AED 4,315 ($1175).
