CLEAR VIEW
The Hecla Carmine Red is the boldest Aqua Compressor yet, with a deep red dial and matching integrated rubber strap. Onto this matte red dial are mounted a mix of batons and Arabic numerals. These are pure white and are made from a blend of ceramic and Super-LumiNova known as Lumicast. Paired with a white handset filled with X1 Super-LumiNova, these provide excellent legibility under any lighting conditions. Against the edge of the dial sits the internal rotating bezel that is a signature feature of compressor dive watches. Operated by the lower screw-down crown, this unidirectional bezel also has lumed markings. With such excellent contrast, it’s immediately apparent that the Hecla Carmine Red is a dive watch that puts practicality at the forefront of its design.
TITANIUM SERIES
The case of the Aqua Compressor is crafted from grade 2 titanium and is remarkably light, weighing just 62g. It measures 41mm in diameter, with a 45mm lug-to-lug, and is just 12.5mm thick. The top of the case is fully brushed, with the case sides being polished to give the design some discreet flair. Blending seamlessly into the curves of the cushion-shaped case is a 2.2mm double-domed sapphire crystal, which has multiple internal layers of anti-reflective coating.

The Aqua Compressor carries a depth rating of 300m, and like the super compressors of old, it achieves this through the water pressure increasingly compressing the gaskets inside the watch the deeper down the watch is. Lightweight and robust, this makes the Aqua Compressor the perfect dive watch to traverse an underwater abyss.

Inside the Aqua Compressor, you’ll find the tried and tested Sellita SW200-1 ticking away. This 26-jewel Swiss automatic movement beats at a rate of 4Hz and has a power reserve of approximately 41 hours. The rotor has been engraved with a bespoke wave design, which you can see through the watch’s sapphire exhibition case back. The Aqua Compressors use the elaboré grade version of this popular calibre, and each movement has been adjusted for accuracy in three positions.




In charitable partnership with The Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT) we are proud to have already raised £40,500, and with the second series of the Titanium Aqua Compressor, we aim to hit our target of £50,000. Exploration and discovery are at the core of Farer and helping to keep HWDT's boat - The Silurian – in service, is close to our hearts. This floating classroom gathers important data via its loyal team of volunteers and reaches 20,000 people every year who are educated on the conservation of sea mammals in Western Scotland.

STORY
Named after HMS Hecla, a Royal Navy bomb vessel launched in 1815. Like many other British bomb vessels, she was named after a volcano, in this case, Hekla in Iceland. She originally served at the Bombardment of Algiers, in a bid to end the slavery practices of Omar Agha. In 1819, she was modified to serve as an Arctic exploration ship, making three journeys in search of the icy Northwest Passage and one unsuccessful attempt on the North Pole, before being retired from service in 1827.
