Farer Reveals New Cobb Chronograph In Monopusher Guise

When Farer introduced the Segrave Monopusher over the summer, we speculated that a second colorway would soon follow, given the relative rarity with which the brand releases a singular watch. Today, we get our first look at that second colorway, it’s called the Cobb Monopusher, and like the Segrave, it’s based on a pior release. Here, we’re treated to a typical bright array of colors assigned to a relatively traditional chronograph dial spread, all set within that lovely Farer case.

The Cobb Chronograph was first released in 2018 (you can see our video review of the watch right here) sporting a dark blue dial with asymmetrical subdials filled with a range of teals. The timing hands rendered in bright primary colors brought some levity to the arrangement, and made the watch unmistakably Farer.


The Cobb Monopusher offers a different interpretation of this design. Gone is the ‘big-eye’ layout, replaced by symmetrical cream colored sub dials, with the first ten minutes of the totalizer highlighted in yellow. The base of the dial is a silvery blue with ‘torchlight’ sunray texture that I get the feeling will not be served justice with mere pictures. Timing hands are rendered in orange, while the running second hand is flat blue. It’s enough color to feel light and playful, but a mature playful. 

Applied Arabic numerals are solid cast natural white Super-LumiNova infilled with blue ink, and look pretty mean in the dark. Keeping symmetry in check is a date aperture at 6 o’clock, which will likely divide fans but is ultimately a practical addition. Perhaps this watch would have been a good candidate for a 12 o’clock date placement?

The case we saw debut on the Segrave Monopushger returns here, which itself is a rendition of what we see in the Chronograph Sport collection. Unique to the Monopusher watches are the ‘harlequin’ bordered case walls that accentuate the slope of the case toward the wrist on either side. The case itself measures 40.5mm in diameter and just 44mm from lug to lug. The case height is 12.2mm with a box case sapphire crystal that brings the total thickness to 14.7mm. The underside of the case bulges at the viewing window, keeping the thickness in check at a glance on wrist. 

Farer is using a Sellita SW510 MP Elaboré automatic chronograph movement here, which again, is visible through an exhibition window which reveals a dark blue, scalloped rotor. This is a monopusher as well, meaning all chronographs functions are routed to a single pusher located at 2 o’clock. 

The Cobb Chronograph Monopusher is available to order now directly from Farer, and starts at $1,995 with your choice of St Venere leather strap, or $2,055 on the steel three-link bracelet. Farer.
