Farer Updates their World Timer Collection

Introduced in 2019, Farer’s World Timer series has continued to garner attention for the brand and has become one of their most popular collections to date. Between a nearly pitch-perfect design for the dial and the impressive central rotating 24-hour disc and a bidirectional internal bezel, the wearer has the ability to read 24 time zones simultaneously. 

Now, the Britain-based company has released a new iteration of the World Time collection, each with notable enhancements, reintroducing favorites like the Roché and Markham alongside the introduction of the all-new Foxe model in a striking green hue. Those familiar with the collection’s previous design will notice updated hour and minute hands, adopting a sleeker alpha shape to complement the watches’ aesthetics. Moreover, adjustments to the rotating bezel showcase city replacements: Chicago has replaced Mexico City, Beijing has replaced Hong Kong, and lastly, Paris has been replaced by Bienne to mark where the World Timers are produced.

Less conspicuous is the update to the World Time’s movement. The collection now houses a customized version of the Sellita SW330-1 movement, specifically tailored to accommodate a rotating 24-hour disc instead of a traditional GMT hand. This modification, along with an upgraded mainspring, extends the power reserve to an impressive 50 hours. 

As mentioned, three color options are available for this update. One can choose between Roche, Markham, and Foxe. 

The Roché model combines a highly legible layout with intricate details, featuring a midnight blue dial adorned with a Clous de Paris guilloché pattern, complemented by pure white Super-LumiNova markers for enhanced visibility in low-light conditions.

In contrast, the Markham World Timer boasts a classic red, white, and blue color scheme accentuated by an eye-catching guilloché dial. The polished batons and numerals, filled in deep blue, along with the mint green Super-LumiNova hands, is British heritage personified.

Finally, the Foxe introduces a captivating deep green palette to the collection, with a varnished guilloché pattern dial exuding exceptional depth. Pure white Super-LumiNova markers ensure optimal legibility against the verdant backdrop, while the blunter, upgraded hands filled with mint green Super-LumiNova and tipped in orange add a modern flair to this classic design.

Each reference in the World Time collection boasts a 39mm 316L stainless steel case, with a domed sapphire crystal. Each reference comes with a quick-release St. Venere leather strap for $1,695, or one can upgrade to a steel bracelet for an additional $170. The entire World Timer collection is available now via Farer’s website
