The Endurance continues the theme of our Automatics range with a fully polished 316L stainless steel case. The 39.5mm diameter and 10mm case height makes the Endurance a universal size, suitable for all, inspired by some of our favourite vintage watches from the 1950s and 1960s. The signature Farer solid bronze crown sits on the rounded side of the steel case. The crown, although designed to be a stand out feature, tapers away to make the two-tone effect more subtle and understated. The solid bronze crown will naturally change colour and patina over time – giving it a more rugged appearance. However the original shine of the solid bronze can be simply restored using a soft brush and a drop of lemon juice.
Designed at our Farer studio in London, the Endurance features distinct details and colours in the classically curved dial. Running around the dial, you will notice the red and blue dual track, with the second numbers playfully inverted so that the red and blue sit next to each other, no matter where you look. The outer, glossed section of the dial picks up the changing light and emphasises the over-printed navy blue of the hour numerals that alternate with classic baton markers. As with all Farer models, the detailing does not stop there and on closer inspection you can pick up the fine, white keyline that wraps around the deep navy.
As the eye travels towards the centre of the Endurance, the gloss silver face gives way to a matt finish, which emanates from the centre of the sun- burst dial. The boundary of the changing textures cuts through the circular date window at six o’clock, above which sits the Automatic marque. In the upper half of the dial, the Farer Universal marque and signature compass icon sit neatly below the twelve o’clock numeral. This inner textured finish helps to emphasise the satin, sunray finish of the outer dial as it follows the same lines of the domed, sapphire crystal glass. Like the very best vintage watches, if you view the watch in profile you can see how the sapphire glass rises from the outer edge, before it domes over the dial.
