Modelled on mid 20th century wristwatches, the Farer GMT combines vintage design elements, like a domed dial and pencil hands, with distinctly more modern colour accents in orange, green and blue.
Three models are available – the Lander, Oxley and Ponting – each named after colonial era British explorers. All share the same steel case that’s 39.5mm in diameter.
More unusually the crown is bronze, meaning it will develop a patina over time as the watch is wound and set.
The Farer GMT is powered by an ETA 2893, a variant of the workhorse ETA 2892 modified to show a second time zone.
Like many other watches at this price point, the Farer GMT is produced by a private label Swiss manufacturer, in this case Roventa Henex.

The Farer GMT is priced at £1250 (about US$1600), and available direct from Farer online.
