When we saw that Farer had turned their attention to field watches a month or so back we were understandably elated as we’re huge fans of their timepieces. We’ve covered two out of three of these field watches now and can complete the set with the equally as awesome Lomond Field Watch which, quite frankly, might be our favourite of the bunch. This first class field watches has a matte navy blue dial and comes with a Horween leather strap, NATO strap and integrated steel bracelet.
Priced at a mighty reasonable £875, the Farer Lomond Field Watch gives you an awful lot of watch for under £1k. The dark navy blue of the Lomond dial boasts a stunning super matte finish, for an understated reflection and unparalleled clarity. The dial design is characterised by overprinted alternate numerals and markers in off-white SLN Grade A Super-LumiNova, which does a great job of contrasting with the brushed steel sword hands infilled in light orange Super-LumiNova – giving a high performance glow whenever the sun goes down.
Adventure Ready Accessory
The field watch collection from Farer is definitely built for adventure and there are few better examples of this than their Lomond Field Watch. The beacon red date pointer hand makes use of the Farer ‘A’ marque to create a highlighter for the date, as it moves around the outer engraved date ring, flipping over to the next date at midnight. The final month end numbers have been cleverly inverted from sky blue to burnt orange and act as a reminder to reset with the quick date function. A purpose-driven tool watch with classic Farer colour appeal.
The Farer Lomond Field Watch (£875) has been purpose built to withstand the harshest of weather conditions and the comfortably sized 38.5mm field case design is hewn from with 316 marine-grade stainless steel for a no-nonsense performance day in, day out. This specialist industry grade metal enhances the in-built advantages of regular stainless steel by upping the levels of chromium and molybdenum to produce a toughened steel with exceptional corrosive resistance.
The case of the Lomond is framed by the sleek lines of the distinctive fixed bezel in brushed finish with crown protector sides to shield the timepiece from any hard knocks. On the inside of this watch is the power drive Sellita SW221-1 automatic movement, which is a rare piece with date hand function, 38-hour power reserve and in-built shock system. On the reverse of the Lomond Field Watch you’ll discover a polished case back, highlighting the water-capable 200M depth rating and featuring our specially commissioned engraving.
Getting it’s moniker from Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park in Scotland, this Field Watch has adventure in its blood. At its heart sits the great freshwater lake of Loch Lomond, 22.6 miles long and over 500 feet deep – with the wooded hills, lochs and glens of the Trossachs to its east. This is often considered the boundary between Central Scotland and the Highlands, it is home to Scotland’s most southerly Munro, Ben Lomond, which sits at 3,196ft.
The Farer Lomond Field Watch is exceptional value for money at £875 and for any man seeking an entry level luxury watch that is going to keep pace with all your adventures, look no further. Stylish, impeccably well made and boasting a bold, uncompromising aesthetic we’re big fans of here at Coolector HQ, the Lomond delivers in spades.
