The ultimate travel companion

Farer World Timers are intricately designed to show you an uninterrupted view of 24 key cities across the globe in a single glance. A clever mechanism, based on Sir Sandford Fleming’s revolutionary system of worldwide time zones - first proposed in 1879. The Scottish-born Canadian inventor recommended that the world be divided into time zones, each spaced 15 degrees of longitude apart.

HOW TO SET THE
FARER WORLD TIMER

DIAL
FIRST CLASS

Each dial in the collection is based around a single Farer World Timer design concept. The original vision for the design was to deliver ultimate clarity while showing off intricate levels of craftsmanship. From micro piqué patterns to applied solid blocks of Super-LumiNova - real attention to detail had gone into the execution of each dial. And with over 40 steps in the manufacturing process to create one of these dials (in comparison an industry standard would be more like 14), these watches aim to please even the sharpest horolicial eye.

CASE
DETAILED FINISHING

The Farer World Timers are held in a 39mm diameter case with a slim depth of just a 11mm, while drop lugs keep the case snug to the wrist for a comfortable every day fit. Made from 316L stainless steel and treated in multiple finishes, with an outer brushed bezel and highly polished case edges that outline micro-blasted case side cut-ins and follow around to the dropped lugs. Our flush fitting top domed sapphire crystal has been anti-reflective treated internally for full clarity of the bi-directional World Timer bezel underneath.

MOVEMENT
RARE ETA

The reverse of the Farer World Timers have a highly polished stainless steel four-screw case back with flat sapphire exhibition glass, through which the decorated Swiss-made movement instantly stands out. Our love of bold colour continues right down to the movement on this watch with our bespoke matte red line-cut designed rotor. Driven by the increasingly rare ETA 2893-1 Elaboré movement with universal hour indicator disc, date and once fully wound approximately 48 hours of power reserve.

REVIEWS
The Horological British Invasion is in full swing. Unless you’ve been intentionally shielding yourself from watch releases for the last, say, five years, you’ve certainly heard of brands like Bremont and Christopher Ward. In stature, those brands may be considered The Beatles and The Rolling Stones of this watch wave, but just like the lesser-known bands of the 1960s cultural phenomenon, there are plenty of watch brands worthy of your attention. One of the most exciting brands, in my opinion, is Farer. 
It’s unclear as to when you should stop referring to a company as a “microbrand”, but the conundrum also brings a sense of sheepish pride. Farer’s growth has been exponential in the past few years, with their command of colourful yet classy releases helping to sell out almost all of their releases cross a stream of new models and colour schemes. Here to prove their recognition now belongs beyond “micro” level are just five of their releases from the past year alone.
If Steve Zissou were to own a watch in 2022, it’d be this one. The Farer Thurso shows how a watch company can continue to evolve their looks while not straying too far from principle aesthetics of the brand.
I have a question for you: How many black dialed-dive watches do you own? The black dial, black bezel format has long been the central aesthetic for the dive watch derived from the format's intensely toolish origin story. But today, SCUBA diving has finned well beyond its military start to become a safe and exciting leisure sport. Furthermore, watches aren't even commonly used as a safety device for diving – so can't we all have a little fun?
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.
