British watchmakers, Farer, are a class apart in our opinion when it comes to classy, adventure ready timepieces and their latest offering, the visually vibrant Carnegie Watch, is one of their coolest looking to date. This chronograph sport watch with matte teal dial, three sub-dials and a St Venere leather strap, is the epitome of automotive inspired timepiece and if you’re after a new luxury timepiece for your wrist this summer, the Carnegie is right up there with the best of them.
Perfectly priced at £1680, the Farer Carnegie Watch is a timepiece with an undeniably universal appeal. Its retro inspired aesthetic has been reimagined for today horology aficionado and it’s hard not to be wowed by the visuals. Based on the Bernina architecture, and made to stand out in the crowd with a rich matte teal dial punctuated by the recessed triple sub-dial layout in brilliant blue circular sunray finish, this latest release from Farer is already selling out fast so don’t hang around if you want to get your hands on one.
Racing Inspired Aesthetic
The main 60 second chronograph hand on the Farer Carnegie Watch cuts through like the start line in racing red, and this is brilliantly balanced by the dauphine style hour/minute hands – which are infilled in Super-LumiNova Grade A – for great visibility in low light conditions. The Carnegie has polished steel batten hour markers around the edge of the dial which are framed by a pure white angled second track.
Boasting a dark blue bezel which has been engraved with a tachymeter scale, the Farer Carnegie Watch (£1680) is a thing of lasting beauty that will add a touch of class to any wrist this spring and summer. Machined for high-precision use, the sophisticated and stylishly-shaped Farer Chronograph Sport case is crafted from marine grade 316L stainless steel, and finished with a circular-brushed top and horizontal-brushed side that makes it a robust and hard-wearing timepiece, wherever your adventures take you.
