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.
When I think of Farer, I think first of colour. Often playful--and frequently inspired--Farer use uncommon palettes to create memorable dial designs. And with the latest launches in its Manual Wound Cushion Case Collection, the brand has done just that in both the Durham and the Mansfield. What the watchmaker has proven with the Lethbridge, on the other hand, is that colour need not be offbeat nor unconventional to make an impact. And sometimes, you need only one.
Building on the success of their 2019 Cobb Chronograph, Farer have released the Cobb Monopusher--a limited edition timepiece, numbered 1-100. Like the original Cobb, the devil is in the detail. And the detail here is colour...a beautiful hue of sunburst blue, to be exact. Into this palate, toss twin, cream-coloured sub-dials, a complementary orange chronograph hand, and a swath of yellow in the 30-minute dial to highlight the ten-minute marker.
