Farer Erebus is a Dark Dialled Delight

Yeah, too much aliteration there, but this is a handsome watch from Brit brand Farer. With a Sellita SW200 auto movement, see-thru crystal caseback, 39.5mm diameter case and the classic three hand layout, this is a daily dress watch that does the job.

It’s kinda slim at just under 11mm in height too, which is great for smart occasions. Price is £790. Here’s some history on the name Erebus, a doomed exploration ship;

Named after HMS Erebus, a Royal Navy polar exploration vessel, formerly a bomb vessel. In search of a vital sea route between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, the ship left England in 1845 in order to search for the North-West Passage.

The expedition was commanded by Captain Sir John Franklin, a seasoned polar explorer who had already led two previous searches for the North-West Passage. However, his final journey to the Arctic would end in tragedy.

A year and a half after setting off, their ships became trapped in ice near King William Island. By 1848, Franklin was dead and the surviving men abandoned their still-trapped ships. These scant details were gleaned from a note the crew left in a cairn. The exact circumstances of their deaths remain a mystery to this day.
