Since Farer launched our first watch with Lumicast markers in 2019, we have continued to refine and develop the feature. The new Meredith GMT offers the apex of these three-dimensional markers, which are a blend of Super-LumiNova and ceramic. The moulded Arabic markers on the Meredith GMT use X1 Super-LumiNova, the highest grade available, and these are over-printed with navy blue that reaches to the very edge of the markers. This creates a true backlit effect, where the luminesces is only emitted from the sides of the markers.
These markers are mounted onto a brushed copper ring, whilst the centre of the dial is also copper but has a gravel texture. On this central area, you’ll find the lumed 24-hour GMT scale, for use in conjunction with the short white GMT hand. In a first for Farer, the hour and minute hands are sword-shaped, in a glossy navy blue and filled with X1 Super-LumiNova. Meanwhile, the running seconds hand is painted a copper pink to match the dial, with the Farer A at its tip bright red.
Lastly, to make the Meredith GMT extra special, this model is a limited edition of only 150 pieces.
One Dial, Two Time Zones.
The stainless steel case of the Meredith GMT measures 39.5mm across and is just 10.8mm thick. This is an excellent all-round size that’s very comfortable to wear, and the Palmer sits very unobtrusively on the wrist. The case features a polished bezel and case sides alongside brushed lug tops, which gives the watch a versatile smart-casual aesthetic that means it can be dressed up or down. As usual, the winding crown is inset with our signature bronze cap embossed with the Farer ‘A’. The crystal is a boxed sapphire that provides exceptional scratch resistance and has been given an internal anti-reflective coating to guarantee legibility.
Powering the Meredith GMT is the Sellita SW330-2 automatic movement. This dependable calibre beats at a smooth rate of 28,800 bph (4Hz), contains 25 jewels and has a solid power reserve of 56 hours. What’s more, this is the 'Top Grade' version of the SW330, so it’s been adjusted for accuracy in 5 positions, and you can see this beautifully decorated movement ticking away through the sapphire case back.
Named after Leonard Meredith, who took gold in the Cycling Team Pursuit at the 1908 Olympics in London. Meredith competed in three Olympics and held seven world titles in his 22-year professional career.
