British watchmakers, Farer, have long been a favourite of ours here at The Coolector and it’s due to the fact they release such fantastic timepieces as this Cresta Chronograph Sports Watch. This mesmerising timepiece has a matte navy blue dial, three sub-dials alongside a classy, St Venere leather strap.
The Farer Cresta Chronograph Sports Watch has a price tag of £1680 boasts brilliant-white big-eye sub-dial at 3 and an anodised aluminium external fixed bezel with an engraved tachymeter scale that adds a real touch of class to proceedings. The Cresta does a superb job of balancing athletic presence with stylish design details and we’re loving its vintage style aesthetics here at Coolector HQ.
Style Meets Substance
The overprinted Super-LumiNova Grade A hour numerals ensure full clarity by night and an off-white colour during the day. In addition, the main 60-second chronograph hand sits as a bold line of cyan alongside the polished edged, dauphine style hour/minute hands, which are infilled in Super-LumiNova. The Cresta Watch from Farer has sub-dials and a subtle domed effect on the fish-eye sub-dial at 3 round off a design that’s contemporary, sporty and ideally suited for any environment or adventure.
Machined for high-precision usage, the sophisticated and timeless Farer Chronograph Sport Case for their Cresta Watch (£1680) is crafted from marine-grade 316L stainless steel and finished off with a circular-brushed top and horizontal-brushed side. This is expertly set against a highly-polished back that’s individually numbered around the rim to make the watch unique to you and the case sits perfectly on the wrist for an elegant aesthetic.
The Cresta Chronograph Sports Watch from Farer is named after a naturally-formed ice skeleton toboggan track in St. Moritz, Switzerland – namely, the iconic Cresta Run which is created anew each winter, as ice-packed snow settles around the area’s rocky ravines and banks of earth. First founded by British military officers who were visiting the Alps in 1885, it’s the only course of its type in the world and an enduring favourite with amateurs to this day. After a watch with a spirit for adventure? This is the one for you.
