Off the Cuff: Farer Lethbridge Cushion Case Manual

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.
