Before I get into this, I need to state my unhealthy obsession with microbrands; Farer is one of them. With gorgeous collections ranging from three-hand, time-only models to sports chronographs and divers, Farer consistently releases beautiful watches. The watch I’ll be talking about today is no exception.
Farer’s classic Three Hand collection is a staple for the brand. The original collection measured 39.5mm. Farer now offers a 36mm variant for those who enjoy the beautiful, time-only watch in a smaller form factor.
Over the last couple of years, the cry for smaller watches has been echoing throughout the enthusiast space, from myself included. Farer listened to the people and released their Three Hand collection in a more compact 36mm case.
Downsizing doesn’t mean a sacrifice in quality. The new variants offer the same craftsmanship, finishing, and bright colours as their bigger brother and the same Swiss-made La Joux-Perret Automatic calibre G101.

Farer Three Hand Automatic 36mm
By implementing a smaller 36mm case, you reduce the overall sizing of the watch. The new Three-Hand collection features a lug-to-lug of 41.2mm, 20mm lug width and a case thickness of only 10.4mm. The compact lug-to-lug paired with the thin case and 20mm lug width will ensure a comfortable feel on the wrist.
The new Three Hand collection comes in four colourways: Resolute (white dial and sorbet dial), Erebus Midnight (midnight blue dial) and the Discovery Red (cherry red dial). Four beautiful colour choices to keep the new line consistent with unique and bold colour options.
The Three Hand Automatic 36mm retails for $990USD on leather and $1005USD on the bracelet. For more information on the new Three Hand Collection, please visit the brand website.

36MM hits the sweet spot for many. Farer did a stellar job releasing these at that size!
At both 39.5MM and 36MM on a versatile set of colours, these Three Hand Automatics are a perfect unisex choice that couples can share.
