Though indie watch brand Farer has only been around since late 2015, it’s quickly become one of our favorites in the space for its reasonably priced, well-proportioned and retro-looking watches. After initially launching a series of quartz three-hand and GMT watches, then adding an automatic series into the mix, Farer has just launched a new trio of automatic GMTs.
The new GMT takes on the same look and shape as the rest of Farer’s watches, with a 39.5mm case (that’s only 10mm thick!), a bronze crown and a selection of retro dial designs that mimic the look and of mid-century tool watches. Inside is an ETA 2893-2 Top Grade movement (“top grade” here means it’s accurate to +/-4 seconds a day) decorated with Perle and Colimaçonne finishing techniques.
The best part? At $1,450, they’re some of the most affordable mechanical GMTs you can buy. Given that most other automatic GMTs start around $2,000, you get a lot of watch for the money.
