Halley and Cushion Case Steel Bracelet With Butterfly Clasp

MIDNIGHT MOON

The hand-painted yellow moon of the Halley shines brightly against a glossy midnight blue dial. In nature, a yellow moon occurs when the moon is viewed close to the horizon. This is because the blue light has been scattered through the Earth’s atmosphere, leaving only the warmer yellow and red tones which are accentuated by dust particles in the air. Alongside this eye-catching complication, sits bright white numerals composed of Grade OL X1 Super-LumiNova. These are paired with a flawlessly polished lance handset and a seconds hand with the Farer “A” in burnt orange.

Features

Lunar Orbit - Each moonphase 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. 

Curvaceous Comfort - The cushion case sits comfortably on any wrist, with a thickness of only 10.5mm and a compact lug-to-lug of 43.8mm.

Manual Drive - The watches in the Moonphase collection are powered by Swiss hand-wound mechanical movements with custom decoration, which can be viewed through a sapphire case back. 

STORY

The Halley takes its name from Edmond Halley, the famous English astronomer whom Halley's Comet was named after. Born in 1656, Halley took a keen interest in astronomy from a young age and would be responsible for several notable experiments and theories throughout his life. He was the first to map the Southern stars, and whilst doing so realised the future observation of the transit of Venus between the Sun and Earth could be used to trigonometrically calculate the distances between Earth, Venus, and the Sun.

 

In 1682, Halley observed what would become known as Halley’s Comet, going on to use Isaac Newton’s laws of motion to accurately predict its return in 1758, which he sadly never lived to see. Halley helped Isaac Newton publish his book, Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, in 1687, in which Newton expounds upon his laws of motion and gravitation, which is regarded as one of the most influential scientific books in history. In 1720, Halley succeeded Flamsteed as the second Astronomer Royal, a position Halley held until his death in 1742 at the age of 85.

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.

When I find out one of the most design-conscious British brands is tackling this most traditional complication, my curiosity is piqued.→

The Moonphase collection features a big personality within a trim 38.5mm case that’s not shy on details itself, but the star of the show is undoubtedly the enormous moon depicted within the aperture that dominates the top half of the dial.→
