Earlier this year, the Stanhope made its return to the Farer collection, but with a new dynamic cushioned case design that had us intrigued from the get. The case got wider, making room for an edgier bezel that contrasted from the round dial and cushion case, giving the Stanhope II its distinct look. Pair the updated case with a dial that already had some depth from its current construction and furnishings, and we get a watch that has made quite the impression among the loyal Farer fanbase, general watch enthusiasts, and our very own Zach Kazan who reviewed the Stanhope II back in June.
All that said, I couldn’t help but notice how the Stanhope II seemed more conservative than most Farers. In my eyes, I attributed that to the off-white case and subtle use of color, which is uncommon for the brand which I’m used to seeing more bold and vibrant use of colors from. Today, Farer has answered that call with the release of three new models that add more than a touch of color to their newly designed case.
