Modern Classics


This is where it all began. 
The three hand classic collection builds on Farer's original mechanical range, and continues to push the levels of detailing to lead the way in contemporary dial design. Inspired by the halcyon-era of watchmaking, combining bold colours with the very best craftsmanship. A refined collection for those who want the purest form of a Farer timepiece.
Discovery II

Erebus II

Three hand second sweep automatic watch with black silk gloss dial and choice of strap.

The Erebus is an exercise in modern elegance. Restrained, but never plain, the design strips back the Farer approach to its bare elemental parts.

TIMELESS DESIGN

The dial design is the real hero of any Farer watch, the element most responsible for its identity and uniqueness. Characterised by the multiple use of colour, developed overprinting techniques and the fine finishes across the collection - all designed to catch the eye on second look and reflect the light in different conditions. For our evolved collection we have combined the classic with the contemporary to create a series of watches that sets the designs above the rest while remaining timeless for any occasion.

REVIEWS
The Horological British Invasion is in full swing. Unless you’ve been intentionally shielding yourself from watch releases for the last, say, five years, you’ve certainly heard of brands like Bremont and Christopher Ward. In stature, those brands may be considered The Beatles and The Rolling Stones of this watch wave, but just like the lesser-known bands of the 1960s cultural phenomenon, there are plenty of watch brands worthy of your attention. One of the most exciting brands, in my opinion, is Farer. 
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.
