The Beagle has a fully polished 316L stainless steel case. Designed to be a truly universal watch, the 39.5mm size means it suits both larger and smaller wrists and is packed full of intricate design detail. Domed, sapphire crystal glass sits proudly over the vintage-inspired, curved dial. Without a shadow of a doubt, the standout feature of the Beagle is the use of a vibrant, apple green of the hands and the numerals. This tone of green is rarely seen in the modern watch market, however it was commonplace in some of the best classic timepieces. With every watch we design, we enjoy looking to history for our inspiration today.
Our ambition has always been to bring real personality and boldness to the Beagle, which we have delivered through our use of the vintage-inspired green. It sits at the centre of the metallic black syringe hands and on the over-printed numerals. All other features are designed to complement, a fine black keyline is used to outline the numerals and subtle, yet contrasting, dial finishes off-set the vibrant colour. Typical to each Farer Automatic, you will notice the centre of the watch finished with a matt texture. In the case of the Beagle, the inner matt texture offsets the oyster gloss of the outer dial. Sitting proudly between the two textures is the Farer Automatic marque with our signature compass icon and, at six o’clock, the circular date window intersects the numeral very slightly to catch the eye.
Although it nods towards a vintage and classical approach, the Beagle is designed with a number of modern twists and pops of colour. The most prominent being the red Farer compass, forming the tip of the curved second hand as it sweeps along a fine red inner track. On closer inspection, a sharp eye will notice the light blue second numbers as they interrupt the black outer track.
