Farer has made some great chronographs in recent years, most recently in the colorful Carnegie, which we reviewed just earlier this week. The British based brand has a knack for injecting their unique personality into each watch in the form of unexpected colorways and a respect for great case dimensions. Their latest creation, the Segrave Monopusher Chronograph offers a new take on that formula. It’s subtle, interesting, and still Farer through and through.
The Segrave name may sound familiar, and for good reason, as it was used by the brand on a chronograph released back in 2018. That watch served as the inspiration for the Monopusher variant you see here. That means a matte black dial, dual registers, and a colorful hand set. The new watch also gets the ‘big eye’ treatment, with an oversized minute totalizer at 3 o’clock that gets a white backdrop, while the smaller sub dial housing the running seconds indication is matched to the dial.
Those colorful hands come in the form of a bright blue timing seconds hand, a green minute timing hand, and an orange running seconds hand. A raised telemeter bezel runs the perimeter, featuring green numerals on a white backdrop. It’s enough color to be effective, while held back enough to give the watch a somber feel compared to something like the Carnegie. This feels like a design you could wear everyday.
Also making a case for everyday wear are the well considered dimensions. The steel cushion shaped case measures 40.5mm in diameter and 12.2mm in thickness (the domed sapphire adds 2.5mm to that measurement), while the whole thing is just 44mm from tip to tip. The midcase structure appears curved to better form around the wrist, and at the case edge this profile receives a lovely engraved harlequin pattern.
As you may have guessed from the name, this is a monopusher chronograph. The Elaboré grade SW510 MP inside is operated via the bronze capped crown at 3, while the timing functions are all routed through a single pusher at 2 o’clock. One press starts the timing, a second stops it, and a third will reset. The whole operation is visible through the open caseback revealing a bespoke navy colored rotor and a few blued screws holding the bridges in place.
The Segrave Monopusher is a single colorway, rather than the trio we’ve gotten used to seeing from the brand recently. That said, we wouldn’t be too surprised to see an additional colorway appear in the near future. The Segrave Monopusher is available now directly from Farer for the price of $1,995 on your choice of 4 different St Venere leather strap options. Farer.
