If you’ve read any of my reviews on this site, you know I tend to mention accents as a “welcomed pop of color”. On a watch like the Farer Carnegie Chronograph Sport, a “pop of color” doesn’t really apply, since the entire thing is an explosion of blue, red, orange, and steel. Farer’s Carnegie is anything but subtle, and this fun, sporty chronograph really does an excellent job of embracing color. Named after the only UK Olympian to win a medal at the 1928 St. Moritz Winter Olympics, the Carnegie bears the name of David Carnegie. He earned the bronze medal while flying down a naturally formed ice canyon known as the Cresta Run on little more than a board with some blades on the bottom. The sporty chronograph’s teal and blue dial is reminiscent of glacial ice, and the timing functions go hand in hand with racing.
Today, we’re taking a closer look at the Carnegie model. Zach Weiss reviewed the similar Bernina model back in 2019, which you can check out right here. Both watches are built on the same case, contain the same movement, but feature drastically different dials. Let’s take a closer look at the recently-restocked Carnegie from a Worn & Wound favorite brand — Farer.
