SILK CHOCOLATE

The Eldridge Mechanical Chronograph’s rare silk chocolate dial colour has a subtle metallic steel depth, changing colour into an array of dark copper tones when caught in the light. Framed by overprinted mint Lumi-SuperNova numerals outlined, upon close inspection, in dark blue. The central chronograph hand in sky blue sits over the highly-polished steel hour/minute stripe hands, gently tapered with mint Super-LumiNova infill. Punched through the main dial design are equal inset oversized sub-dials with micro-fine spun detailing - allowing the information to be seen in crisp clarity. A matching date wheel at six o’clock balances the sub-dials without interfering with the layout of the overall dial. Second track markings in pure white with 5-second intervals in sky blue, framed by an outer angled flange with a white Telemeter scale for measuring distance.

DETAILED FINISHING

The Farer chronograph 316L stainless steel 39mm case is built around the Swiss Made ETA 2894-2 Elaboré modular movement, which allows for a thinner outer case profile of just 12.5mm. The domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment is held by the outer brushed bezel, highly-polished case edges outline micro-blasted case side cut-ins and follow round to the dropped lugs. A four screw case back with flat sapphire exhibition glass displays the movement and bespoke Farer bronze ‘turbine’ design rotor. The Farer bronze crown has been retained, but now with a highly functional, straight machined texture and featuring the signature ‘A’ inset on its profile. Flanked by oblong steel pushers, top brushed and side polished for ease of use - balancing the visual appeal of the overall watch case design.

STORY
Named after Ernest Eldridge, born in 1897, a British racing car driver who broke the world land speed record in 1924. He set the last land speed record set on an open road (at 146mph). Ernest was a colourful character - he spent the family fortune on gambling, racing and flying. He once lost £60,000 playing 'chemmy', in Monte Carlo in 1922, on the turn of one card.
