A brand I’ve missed – Farer

Farer is a British watch brand that is marketing some very nice looking watches. I am guilty of ignoring them up until now, the only excuse I can put forward in my defence is I automatically put them into the “quartz fashion brand” category. My mistake !

To try and justify this admission I now have a reason to write about them, they have launched an automatic range. As you can see from the example above their watches do look very cool and refreshingly do not follow the fashionable “minimalist” style.

The automatic range consists of three colour variations on the three hand and date style of the Beagle (shown above).

As with the quartz range the watches are designed in Britain and made by Rowena-Henex in Switzerland. Again, like the existing range, they feature a classic 39.5mm case. For the movement they have fitted the tried and tested ETA 2824-2. They are currently priced at £875.

I am really looking forward to seeing an actual example of these watches, I hope they are attending the Salon QP.
