The Dive Compressor, Reinvented.

The Dive Compressor, Reinvented.

For the launch of our Titanium Series Aqua Compressor dive watches, based on a mutual love and respect for the water - we are supporting the marine conservation charity Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust. To help protect the fragile state of our sealife through their programme of research. Creating meaningful change for the future of Scottish Hebridean marine life.

We are proud to have already raised £35,500 with our first series, and with the second release of the Titanium Series Aqua Compressor's we aim to hit our target of £50,000.

Thank you for your support.

DIVE FUNCTION

Whether you’re looking for a dive buddy or a go-everywhere timepiece, the specification and hypoallergenic finish of the Titanium Series Aqua Compressor collection delivers a set of highly wearable and robust tool watches. Developed to put clarity at the forefront, the dial designs are a bold take on the Farer classic. With oversized split minute hand marking, used for quick identification of time elapsed against the internal bezel.

SUPER-LUMINOVA

As a diver, clarity and accuracy is paramount. Each Titanium Series Aqua Compressor dive watch has a series of high contrast dial colours and Super-LumiNova detailing to show the core information. It works like a light storage battery, where light charges the surface and afterwards the light is continuously emitted. Mixed with a specific binder, Swiss Super-LumiNova is applied on all Aqua Compressor dials and hands.

QUICK-RELEASE

Each Aqua Compressor is supplied with a quick release natural rubber strap, finished with a secure oversized titanium tool buckle featuring the Farer ‘A’ and wave pattern detailing inner grip. A new addition for Series 2 release is our quick release matching oyster style, brushed marine grade titanium tapered bracelet, with three way folding clam clasp closure and safety locking mechanism.

TITANIUM STRENGTH

The Titanium Series is lighter and tougher than its stainless steel counterparts, and along with its extremely corrosive-resistant properties makes the perfect material for a dive watch. The case engineering is designed around the compression principle: as the water pressure on the outside of the case increases, gaskets built around the key areas are naturally compressed, so that the case becomes more water resistant the deeper you dive.

TWIN CROWNS

The twin crowns are screw-down, spring-back release with their own gaskets, allowing the watch to be taken to depths of 300m / 1000ft. The signature Farer solid bronze crown allows you to adjust the time and features the Farer ‘A’ carved out of a squared texture for feel. The titanium crown allows you to adjust the internal dive time bezel, with the classic Super-Compressor hatching detail for feel.

UNI-DIRECTIONAL BEZEL

Compressor watches have always had a more modern and sleek look than the conventional divers, allowing the lines of the case to merge with the crystal. The unidirectional internal bezel under the crystal is for the measurement of dive time, moving by increments of one minute. The bezel utilises a precision ratchet safety system which disconnects the feed from crown to bezel by only turning it anti-clockwise, preventing any increase in the diving time.

TRUSTED MOVEMENT

The Titanium Series Aqua Compressor collection is powered by the Swiss-made SELLITA SW200-1 Elaboré Non-Date Movement. This is a rare piece from SELLITA, in that it features no ‘ghost date’ within the mechanics to make this 100% functional for the diver’s needs. A highly reliable workhorse movement, adjusted in three positions.

EXHIBITION BACK

Not ones to hide anything away, we believe quality movements should be seen and appreciated. We have developed a screw down back case to hold the flat sapphire crystal exhibition glass, both utilising compressor gaskets to secure the water resistance and withstand the high pressures to 300m/1000ft. Each watch is individually numbered around the exhibition glass, making your watch unique to you.

BESPOKE ROTOR

Turning over the Titanium Series Aqua Compressor case you’ll see the bespoke SELLITA rotor has been detailed in a raised bronze overprinting technique with the Farer submersible three wave design and lettering. As an Elaboré movement it has been finished with snailing (or as the French say more eloquently ‘Perlage’), a round fine detailed decoration on the metal to beautifully catch the light. Powering a 38 hour reserve when the movement is fully wounded.

REVIEWS
It’s unclear as to when you should stop referring to a company as a “microbrand”, but the conundrum also brings a sense of sheepish pride. Farer’s growth has been exponential in the past few years, with their command of colourful yet classy releases helping to sell out almost all of their releases cross a stream of new models and colour schemes. Here to prove their recognition now belongs beyond “micro” level are just five of their releases from the past year alone.
If Steve Zissou were to own a watch in 2022, it’d be this one. The Farer Thurso shows how a watch company can continue to evolve their looks while not straying too far from principle aesthetics of the brand.

I have a question for you: How many black dialed-dive watches do you own? The black dial, black bezel format has long been the central aesthetic for the dive watch derived from the format's intensely toolish origin story. But today, SCUBA diving has finned well beyond its military start to become a safe and exciting leisure sport. Furthermore, watches aren't even commonly used as a safety device for diving – so can't we all have a little fun?

One of the most expensive watches ever reviewed on this channel was a Patek Philippe World Timer, costing over $100,000 at the time of publication. Naturally, this is out of the budget of most watch collectors. However, a relatively new British brand is not only making waves in the watch enthusiast community with some exciting fresh takes on classic watches, but is also offering a Swiss made World Timer at a fraction of the cost of the Patek.

Fortunately, British brand Farer are here to show those brands how it’s done with their latest release, the AquaMatic. This new dive watch comes in four bold colour ways, each named after a popular surfing location (or a wave in the case of the Cribbar) in the UK.
