NORTHERN LIGHTS

The Bradfield Blue is the latest addition to the Pilot collection, offering the classic Bradfield design in a new blue and pink colour scheme. It's a watch that's both playful and practical, with a highly legible dial that features bold pink numerals made from Lumicast, a blend of Super-LumiNova and ceramic. These are then overprinted in white so that they appear backlit as they glow in the dark. Complimenting the bold pink numerals is a recessed internal minute track painted in matching pink lume. This sunken feature works with the raised numerals to give the dial some depth, whilst also adding to the watch's already striking appearance in the dark. Against this complex dial moves the white alpha-style hands, which are filled with mint green lume, as is the Farer 'A' at the tip of the seconds hand. When brought together, all of these elements make the Bradfield Blue an exceptionally eye-catching watch during both day and night. 

Features

Light Show - The Bradfield Blue is packed with Grade A Super-LumiNova, with Lumicast numerals, lumed hands, and a fully lumed inset minute track. 

Flight Case - Each watch has a large 37mm dial housed in a snug 39mm case with short lugs, to deliver maximum dial size with no compromise on wearability. Cleverly achieving an exceptionally legible, yet remarkably comfortable watch for any wrist.

Faraday CageThanks to our inner soft-iron Faraday cage, the watch is protected from any potentially harmful magnetic fields up to 500 Gauss. This is over eight times the standard level of anti-magnetic protection required to comply with ISO 764 certification for anti-magnetic watches.

Swiss Precision - The watch is powered by the robust Swiss Made Sellita SW200-1 automatic calibre. A real pillar of Swiss movements, renowned for its accuracy, dependability and longevity.

STORY

Frances Beatrice “FB” Bradfield graduated from Cambridge University in 1917, breaking the mould for a woman of her time. Bradfield was then one of the first women recruited to the Royal Aircraft Establishment, where she became an expert in wind tunnels - championing their role in aeronautical development and earning the complete respect of her male peers.

The Faraday cage is named after scientist Michael Faraday, who invented the concept in 1836. The cage's conducting material distributes any external electrical field around the cage, essentially creating a shield - so that it cancels the magnetic effect within the cage's interior.

Farer watches often come together in a manner that makes them both eminently wearable and clearly identifiable, and that’s more important than holding fast to the archetypes of dive watches, world timers, and even pilot watches. →

The design of early “three-hander“ pilot watches never spoke to me. They just looked too much like a dashboard instrument and not enough like a watch. Farer however took that design and transformed it into something that really grabbed my attention. →

A pilot watch is an essential addition to any watch lover’s lineup of timepieces and if you find yourself in the market for a new one right now, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better candidate for the job than these Farer Pilot Watches, which combine style and substance effortlessly. →
