CONTRAST COLOUR

The dials of the Chrono-Contempo blend classic and contemporary as only Farer knows how. Each model offers a different execution of a tri-compax chronograph, and both are sure to turn heads thanks to a daring use of contrasting colours between the dials and ceramic bezels. Though, it’s not just the colours that set the Chrono-Contempos apart, because each uses a variety of textures and finishes to pack the dials with immersive details.

SUBLIME SLOPES

The steel case of the Chrono-Contempo measures a svelte 38.5mm in diameter, with a compact lug length of 43.7mm and a thickness of 13.4mm making it an extremely wearable watch. What distinguishes the Chrono-Contempo’s case from other chronographs is its distinctive concave “ski-slope” lugs. The other key feature of the Contempos is the bidirectional bezel with a ceramic insert. The insert features a twelve-hour scale so that you can track a second time zone, and these markings are lumed so that they can be easily read in the dark.

MANUAL MECHANICS

Through the flat sapphire crystal case back, you’ll see a hand-wound and Swiss-made Sellita SW510M b Elaboré grade movement – in itself, a promise of exceptional quality and reliability. An exacting piece of Swiss engineering, the SW510 has an impressive 63-hour power reserve and 23 jewels. Beating at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour, it's a movement built for today’s demanding use. The beautifully detailed movement also has a skeleton framework, perlage finishing, and blued screws, as well as an intricately customised bridge with an engraved Farer monogram chequered sports pattern.

REVIEWS
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.
Farer’s new World Timers are slightly more serious and less fun than many of the brand’s other watches with vibrant color palettes. That’s not a bad thing, though; at heart, what you get is still a Farer. The blue-dial Roché has been on my wrist more than the other two, and I smile each time the mint-green tip of the seconds hand catches my eye.
The super-compressor style is making a comeback, and I think Farer deserves a spot at the top of that list. By adding some thoroughly modern design cues to this very retro style, they’ve created something apart from any other modern super-compressor while maintaining a level of consistency that anyone who has held a Farer watch will immediately pick up on.
I really like the Farer Durham Pullman watch. It’s exactly what I want out of a cushion-shaped sports watch and it delivers a lot of premium design features for its money. 
The Farer Meredith GMT delivers the same copper dial as its chronograph counterpart adorned with the brand’s innovative Lumicast markers. These three-dimensional numerals are a clever blend of ceramic and C1 Super-LumiNova. The lume adorns the back and sides of the raised markers, with navy blue placed on top reaching the very edge of the hardware. This creates a stunning backlit effect when the timepiece is placed in low lighting.
