Instruments for flight

Instruments for flight

Ultimate trust is the key to designing instruments for flight - perfect accuracy and total clarity when in the cockpit. The new Farer Pilot collection features a soft-iron Faraday cage, conducting magnetic interference away from the movement to ensure reliable timekeeping. While the utilitarian aesthetics and big dial designs allow clear legibility in the most demanding conditions. Built for modern explorers, above the clouds or on the ground.

Bradfield

Anti-Magnetic Pilot automatic watch with stepped ring white dial and Granolo leather strap.

A watch reduced to the essentials by day, with legibility a top priority at night through the use of cast Grade A Super-LumiNova luminescent detailing.

HIGH LEGIBILITY

The dials reflect on their original purpose in the cockpit as robust and reliable navigational instruments with high legibility at the core of the distinctive designs. Following the function over form mantra, the dials have been reduced to the bare essentials with bold hands, clear markings and controlled use of colour. The physically big 38mm dials but very wearable size, is cleverly achieved by being held in a pure vertical 39mm case - creating the very maximum size dial without having an overly large external shaped case on the wrist.

SUPER-LUMINOVA

Intricate solid castings and fine applications of the highest Grade A Super-LumiNova pigments have been utilised across the collection to deliver the highest possible afterglow performance. Creating one of the most important features for a pilot watch - the presence of bright lume for reading the time with ease day or night. The effect of the lume is further boosted with the application of anti-reflective treatment inside and out of the domed sapphire crystal, meaning nothing is reflected back into the dial for blurred readings.

FARADAY CAGE

Pilot’s watches were born from function. A cockpit is one of the most magnetic environments a watch will encounter and can have detrimental effect on a watch - slowing, speeding or even stopping a movement. Thanks to our Faraday soft-iron inner cage - any harmful magnetic fields are neutralised around the Swiss Made SELLITA SW200-1 movement, delivering a high level of anti-magnetic protection at ISO 764 Certification: 500 Gauss. The screw down case back has been finished in highly polished steel with the Farer anti-magnetic marque showing the protection of the Faraday cage within.

REVIEWS
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.
