Classic Meets Contemporary

Classic Meets Contemporary

Born out of the Farer Stanhope II release, this is a collection outside of the circular norm. The organic shaped Cushion Case Collection brings a modern elegance to both dial and case design. Combining classical and contemporary cues through every subtle detail - this is an exercise in bold restraint.

TONE & TEXTURE

The cushion case collection is made up of two different blueprints of dial variants. The original Stanhope II is instantly recognisable by the piqué textured floating dial design, while the new releases of Durham, Mansfield and Lethbridge explore a refined colour palette through intricate applications of tone and texture across a vertical grained sector dial design. A sweeping seconds sub-dial application across all dials, finishes the collection off in timeless style.

ORGANIC SHAPE

The 38.5mm case has been designed around an innovative three piece construction; case back, main case body and bevelled bezel with anti-reflective sapphire glass inset - creating in a classical style piece with refreshing angles when viewed on the wrist. The lines of the case architecture create a barrel sided design that frames the dial closely and creates the illusion of the straps being integrated into the bat ear lug design, due to a clever scalloped inner case between the lugs for a snug fit.

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. 

Farer debuted an all new collection this week in the AquaMatic. These dive watches have colorful designs and an easy wearing shape and size that seem perfect for the summer months, and also present what might be a compelling value for some, shipping with a bracelet and two straps that can be easily swapped with one another.
