Introducing the Farer Aqua Compressor Collection

Best Watch

In the event that you’ve been following us for quite a while, you’ve doubtlessly read our inclusion of Farer. We were promptly attracted to its solid plan language that by one way or another both got back to the past yet felt similarly current, as well. Subsequent to taking care of the pieces and addressing the personalities behind the company, we realized that Farer wasn’t in it to compromise. They were in it to assemble an appropriate brand that would make legitimate watches. In that time, Farer has developed hugely, expanding on their debut assortment of quartz watches with a programmed and a progression of GMT watches, the last delivered simply before this year.

A few months back, Farer fellow benefactors Paul Sweetenham and Ben Lewin went along with us on The Worn & Wound Podcast closely following the fruitful dispatch of their GMT assortment. Close to the furthest limit of our conversation, the pair gave us a sneak top at an undertaking that got the whole Worn & Wound group extremely energized. Farer was coming out with an assortment of divers, and an extraordinary divers. They were to be Compressor-cased divers. Indeed, they’re at last here—introducing the Farer Aqua Compressor Collection.

Before we get to the watches, let’s investigate what a Compressor case configuration is and how it functions. The words “Super Compressor” are commonly (and mistakenly) credited to cases that include two crowns and an interior pivoting bezel. In reality, a genuine Compressor case needs neither of those two things. That’s in light of the fact that the word “Compressor” really alludes to the component (which, coincidentally, was planned by case producer EPSA route back in the last part of the ‘50s) through which the case handles water opposition, becoming more water tight at more noteworthy profundities as the expanded water pressure compressed the argument back against the inner O-ring. It’s a truly cool plan, and the Aqua Compressor assortment uses the above guideline, along these lines acquiring its name and its 300-meter profundity rating.

Note the cross-incubate on the crown at four. 20mm hauls. Fueling the watch is an improved ETA 2824-2 out of an elaboré grade. The date has been eliminated, so there’s no apparition date here.

The pad case estimates 41.5mm wide, 12.5mm thick, with a haul to-carry tallness of 45mm, making this a remarkably wearable piece dependent on the measurements alone. The sides and case back are cleaned, the tops are brushed, and there’s a ring of cleaned metal encompassing the precious stone that pulls the eye in.

The twin crowns are screw-down, with the mark bronze crown close to two working the time setting and the steel crown by four working the unidirectional inner bezel. A 2.2mm twofold domed sapphire precious stone sits on the mid-case.

The Aqua Compressor assortment comprises of three unmistakable plans: the Endeavor, Hecla, and Leven–all named after ships.

The Endeavour–classic and strong. The Hecla–the most Farer-esque of the three. The Leven–a bit of vintage here.

The Endeavor is the most controlled of the three, including a matte dark dial with white differentiating markings. Unexpectedly, this is the greatest takeoff for the brand, which is known for its liberal utilization of shading on the dial.

By contrast, the Hecla at that point adopts a more Farer-esque strategy with its dynamic blue dial, white differentiating bezel, and red-rimmed hands. It’s a sandwich dial, with the blue bit sitting over a lumed base with patterns at the entire hours aside from three, six, nine and 12, which are applied.

Finally, the Leven harkens back to some exemplary dive watch configuration, merging what Farer excels at with a ‘70s vibe (I certainly see a touch of the Bulova Accutron Snorkel diver here). Each Farer Aqua Compressor will come matched with two ties. The first is a dark common elastic band with a larger than average clasp. Also, the second is a tightening hardened steel wristband with a two-way fasten and wellbeing locking instrument. It likewise includes an inherent wetsuit extension.

Each watch is independently numbered and will retail for $1,295. Farer
