This Vintage-Inspired Chronograph Is the Perfect Storm

Inspired by exploration’s golden age, Farer’s Lander chronograph packs Swiss precision and striking looks into a sporty 39mm timepiece.


Plenty of watches tout their heritage, but few can claim inspiration from a pioneering British explorer. In the case of Farer’s new Lander Chronograph, its namesake is Richard Lander, the only European crew member to survive after an 1825 expedition to West Africa. At the watch’s beating heart is the Swiss-made ETA 2894-2 Elaboré movement, which boasts an impressive 37 jewels and 28,800 beats per hour for a smooth sweeping action and highly accurate chronograph readings. The hard-wearing stainless steel case hits the sweet spot at 39mm in diameter while including clever details like oblong pushers, an eye-catching bronze crown and a dial done in Farer’s own sea green, a color last used on the brand’s best-selling GMT. Two oversized sub-dials are cut into the balanced face design for a distinctly vintage-inspired look that cements this new chronograph as a soon-to-be classic in timekeeping.
