GMT Automatics

If there is one watch that truly represents the real spirit of Farer it would be a GMT. After all, a wayfarer, a seafarer or a farfarer is someone who travels and explores.

We have set out to combine our British design personality with the most robust Swiss build quality and precise manufacturing processes to deliver a beautiful, but functional collection of watches that stand out in any time zone.

 

A TRAVELLER'S COMPANION

The GMT function dates back to 1884 when an international convention declared Greenwich, England as the ‘Mean Time’ against which the rest of the world’s time zones would be compared. 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.

THE HIGHLIGHTS
BUILT TO LAST

The expertise of our production is reflected in the rigour of testing and the flawless attention to detail at every stage.

THE ART OF THE DIAL

We have crafted colour combinations and experimented with contrasting finishes to develop innovative detailing.

UNIQUE TO YOU

Each watch is individually numbered from 001-100, so every GMT Automatic is one of a kind.

DESIGN
TRIPLE STEP

The Lander GMT is characterised by a unique sea green sunray triple step dial, reflecting the changing light of the day to give a real sense of life to the watch. Framed by bold ghost white numerals that sit clearly and proudly – pushing the limits of dial design applications with 14 times micro over printing. Following them around the dial with an eye for detail you’ll discover the Super-LumiNova that precisely outlines each numeral, giving a subtle extra depth to the colour in daylight while creating functional clarity after dark.

VINTAGE CURVED

The Oxley takes its cues from the classic influences of watchmaking, combining them in a contemporary mix with a rich matte finish to the vintage curved dial that sits as the base to the highly polished 2mm depth main numerals and markers. The statement burnt orange rhodium-plated vintage curved hands infilled with Super-LumiNova create a bold statement set against the matte dial, with sky blue colour tip on the Farer ‘A’ of the sweep second.

MICRO DETAILING

The Ponting’s silver sunray creates an effortlessly light backdrop to the dial, framed by a bold second track outer step in split burnt orange and navy blue to catches the eye. The main numerals area clearly placed around the dial and finished with a sky blue outline at each and every hour. The overprinting creates a subtle domed effect that catches the light to show highlights and extra depths to the colour. The main hour and minute hands are finished in rhodium-plated electric blue and infilled in Super-LumiNova, transforming the watch at night.

CASE

UNIVERSAL SIZE

Designed to be the ultimate classic case for any wrist at a size of 39.5mm, crafted out of 316L high grade stainless steel. Highly polished all over bar the top of the lugs which have been brushed to offset them from the rest of the case and polished rim.

CLASSICALLY CURVED

Designed in unison with the case to compliment the refined lines, the anti-reflective boxed cased sapphire crystal domed glass gives the watch a beautiful finish, especially when viewing at an angle.

SIGNATURE CROWN

The Farer solid bronze tapered crown continues to add to these contrasts. Cast and then cut with the Farer ‘A’ it is designed to be a subtle jewel on the wrist. Over time the crown will patinate depending on the acidity of your skin and the climate you are in, creating a unique finish to your watch personal to you.

SWISS-MADE ETA

The exhibition glass on the rear of the GMT watch collection showcases the 21 jewel ETA 2893-2 ‘Top Grade’ mechanical movement – with dual time functionality for use in two time zones, Incabloc shock protection system and a 42-hour power reserve.

GRAND DECORATION

The movement is elaborately decorated with both Perle and Colimaçonne finishing techniques and completed with a bespoke oscillating rotor incorportating the Farer arrow.

ROBUST AND RESILIENT

As a ‘Top Grade’ movement it is regulated in five positions to exacting standards by ETA with omegametric timing. To deliver the fine level of accuracy ETA use the highest quality parts and multiple adjustment points throughout the movement: a barrel spring in Nivaflex NM ensures a more consistent time, real pallet rubies allow for more accurate escapement, the Glucydur balance wheel resists temperature and movement change along with an Anachron balance spring – all these components go towards making a more precise movement.
