Light Side Of The Moon

The Moonphase collection offers a fresh interpretation of one of the oldest complications in watchmaking. The moon is hand-painted in Geneva, Switzerland using Grade OL X1 Super-LumiNova, which makes for a striking sight during both day and night. Each model in the collection has a different coloured moon, which is inspired by the different shades the moon can appear under certain conditions.

LUNAR ORBIT

The star feature of the Moonphase dials is of course the moonphase complications themselves. Each disc is hand-painted in Geneva, Switzerland and features a textured moon set against a starry sky. What’s more, the moons themselves are painted using Super-LumiNova so that they glow brightly in the dark. This classic complication is complemented by applied markers fashioned from blocks of Grade OL X1 Super-LumiNova, and three colourful dials that contrast with the moonphase to make it jump out at you.

CASE

COMFORT WITHOUT COMPROMISE

The Moonphase collection uses a 38.5mm steel cushion case that combines smooth curves and flawless finishing. The result is a watch that’s both comfortable and elegant on the wrist. The polished bezel has a subtle brushed chamfer that frames the dial, which sits beneath a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Meanwhile, the curved sides have a polished “grain twist” texture that breaks up the case’s silhouette and provides some understated texture. As a final touch, the case is scalloped between the lugs to allow the strap to sit snugly against it without any gap.

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.
