There’s a lot to like here: the proportions are just right, the dial is vibrant with great legibility, and for those who care, it’s got a newcomer movement that’s poised to be a proper challenger to more common options... The Farer 36mm Three Hand Discovery Red is an excellent addition not just to the brand’s catalogue, but to the expanding list of new 36mm watches being offered.
This is not the first Farer we've had on the channel, and it probably won't be the last. That's because every new model from them seems to get my mouth watering. The Farer design team definitely aced their exams in school because these watches just have amazing proportions, and great colours, and always bring something new to the table.
Of course, this being a British watch and us Brits – other than anyone working on the Isle of Man – like accessibility. In this case it’s a finely-finished movement in an even more finely-finished and much quirkier watch, complete with moonphase, for £1,475. That’s the kind of value you only come across on a blue moon which, incidentally, isn’t one Farer have gone for here.
I'd say the level of finishing on here is on par with a much more expensive watch. These retail for around $2,395 and I would say this is well on par with some of the IWC's or Breitlings that I've seen on the channel, and quite a few other of those highly finished luxury watches that are in their five to seven thousand dollar range... I guess you really have to see one of these in person, but I have to say I'm very impressed with this.
Priced at £1475, the Farer Eddington Moonphase Watch is great value for money and a worthy addition to any watch collector’s line up of timepieces. The moon phase of the Eddington uses a disc that’s meticulously hand-painted in Switzerland and adds a real touch of class to the aesthetic. Against the midnight blue sky is a lumed white moon that glows strongly in the dark and delivers a visual impact that is beyond compare.
