The Endeavour Ocean White offers a whole new take on our Aqua Compressor. This model doesn’t just provide a new colour scheme, but a new feature, with a fully lumed dial and bezel. The white surfaces have been carefully applied with Grade X1 Super-LumiNova, which provides the best low-light legibility yet. This stark white has been paired with jet-black printing, blacked-out hands and applied numerals. This monochrome layout gives the Endeavour Ocean White the highest possible contrast and makes the dial exceptionally easy to read.
The minute track is recessed, and combined with the applied hour markers, this gives the dial a sense of depth. Similarly, the Farer “A” at the 12 o’clock position on the bezel is also applied. Lastly, the dial is printed with a subtle wave pattern that’s visible beneath the lume. This crisp monochrome dial is the perfect example of how the Aqua Compressors are first and foremost practical dive watches born for a life under the waves.
Only 90 Endeavour Ocean Whites are initially available, with a second drop arriving in May.
The case of the Aqua Compressor is crafted from grade 2 titanium and is remarkably light, weighing just 62g. It measures 41mm in diameter, with a 45mm lug-to-lug, and is just 12.5mm thick. The top of the case is fully brushed, with the case sides being polished to give the design some discreet flair. Blending seamlessly into the curves of the cushion-shaped case is a 2.2mm double-domed sapphire crystal, which has multiple internal layers of anti-reflective coating.
The Aqua Compressor carries a depth rating of 300m, and like the super compressors of old, it achieves this through the water pressure increasingly compressing the gaskets inside the watch the deeper down the watch is. Lightweight and robust, this makes the Aqua Compressor the perfect dive watch to traverse an underwater abyss.
Inside the Aqua Compressor, you’ll find the tried and tested Sellita SW200-1 ticking away. This 26-jewel Swiss automatic movement beats at a rate of 4Hz and has a power reserve of approximately 41 hours. The rotor has been engraved with a bespoke wave design, which you can see through the watch’s sapphire exhibition case back. The Aqua Compressors use the elaboré grade version of this popular calibre, and each movement has been adjusted for accuracy in three positions.
In charitable partnership with The Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT), we are proud to have already raised £40,500, and with the second series of the Titanium Aqua Compressor, we aim to hit our target of £50,000. Exploration and discovery are at the core of Farer and helping to keep HWDTs' boat - The Silurian – in service, is close to our hearts. This floating classroom gathers important data via its loyal team of volunteers and reaches 20,000 people every year who are educated on the conservation of sea mammals in Western Scotland.
