Farer has a limited edition GMT watch for the summer, just 50 pieces available. The Charlton Athletic, sorry Atlantic, is a teal dial, orange bezel number, which has the usual Swiss movement, plus Farer’s Britpop take on design. Here’s the word;
The GMT Bezel case is a multi-faceted beauty. Made of marine-grade 316L stainless steel, circular brushed top with precision highly polished bevel edges, horizontal-brushed sides, set against a polished back – creating a visually light effect to a robust case. Individually numbered and measuring a comfortable 41mm diameter on the wrist, 44mm lug-to-lug and 12.3mm in height.
The case is framed by the external 24 click rotation bi-directional sapphire GMT bezel, for quick time-zone setting. The recessed steel crown with Farer bronze cap can be screwed down to hold a water resistance depth rating of 200m / 656ft, making this just at home on land or at sea.
Powered by the Swiss Made SELLITA SW330-2 Top Grade GMT movement. Offering a quick setting date and 24 hand adjustment, bringing a level of practicality to this travel focused complication.
The ‘local’ hour/minute hands work on 12-hour time, while the ‘dual time’ GMT hand is independently adjustable to set to any 24-hour time zone and read against the bezel. The outer hour bezel can also be used to track a third time zone. Turn the bezel until the new time zone is aligned with the GMT hand. To revert to the second time zone turn the bezel until ‘24’ is aligned with the Farer arrow. The date change is linked to the traditional hour hand (local time).
Price is £1275 and there are just 50 pieces.
