Highlights

When you first look at the Hopewell you are immediately struck by the blue sunray dial, sitting boldly in the fully polished 316L stainless steel case. With a diameter of 39.5mm, a case height of 10mm and sapphire crystal domed glass – the wearer can immediately recognise the classic, horological inspiration behind this genuinely universal watch.

The signature bronze crown with raised Farer compass marque purposefully juxtaposes with the polished finish of the case to give the Hopewell a real sense of character. The solid bronze crown is designed to change with the elements and give the watch a unique patina over time. 
Matt, textured blue radiates from the centre of the Hopewell’s sunray dial, often only picked up on the second or third time of looking. This is designed to give the watch face more depth and to emphasise the Farer Universal marque which sits at the top of the dial. The date window sits below the Automatic marque in the lower half of the dial, intersecting the six-hour numeral.

Metallic, postbox red hands follow the contour of the curved vintage-inspired dial that falls away at the edges, vanishing into the case. Both hour and minute hands continue to use the Farer syringe-style with a Super-LumiNova finish in the middle.
 The sweeping, matt silver second hand glides seamlessly around the
watch face – accentuated by the primrose yellow Farer compass arrow, which pops out from the blue and follows a subtle yellow outer track. Never wanting to be predictable, we chose to run the second numerals in red along the track. Every second is marked with a small Super-LumiNova marker, every five seconds with a larger marker – miniscule yet significant details. The over-printed hour numerals will glow in darkness and are outlined in a very fine, light blue keyline.

ABOUT

Named after Hopewell, the vessel was part of Sir Martin Frobisher’s fleet. Frobisher was a famous English seaman who made three voyages to the New World in the 16th Century. On his third and final voyage from Canada he brought 1,350 tonnes of iron ore back to Britain thinking it was gold, coining the phrase ‘Fool’s Gold’. Hopewell would later become part of the Winthrop Fleet which took the first Puritans
 to New England in the Great Migration.
