Phwoar. That is all.
Just received the email from Farer and reviewed these watches online. Pretty sweet!
That salmon dial. 😍
respect farer for designing this. so fresh 👍
Wow! Got the email too… damn it too many watches too little 💵 hmm as much as I like the new design I still liked the Stanhope II
Wow! Those are all great. I think the silver with blue numbers wins it (barely) for me.
A stanhope with alpha hands, so great
These are gorgeous! I think the pistachio Mansfield is my favourite, but the Durham gets a nod too. Damn Farer! I can’t afford one of these… can I? 😳
Is there a bracelet option for any of them? They look great and I got to try on the Stanhope II at the Windup Watch Fair in Chicago. Very impressed with that watch. The green would be my choice from this lot. Like the pistachio color way. I'd consider this watch if there was a bracelet option. I don't like leather straps on my watches. I'm pretty much a rubber, bracelet or MN (think Erika's Originals) strap guy.
There's a mesh bracelet for the Stanhope which I imagine will be offered with these too.
EDIT - yes they are all available with the above mesh plus some rubber options.
After the initial shock of lust for these - I'm still very happy with my Stanhope II.
Don't know why they picked the SW216-1 manual wind instead of SW260-1 an automatic version. I was very temped by the Tea green, but I would have pulled the trigger if it was an automatic. On the case design they borrowed heavily from Stanhope II and knocked it out of the park. They are not saving much thickness going with manual wind over automatic. I don't get this.
I imagine that the automatic would have increased the thickness by at least 1mm and for a dressier watch, they wanted to keep the measurements under 12mm thick. The Stanhope is manual wind too if I'm not mistaken.
You know, they fixed the complaints I generally had about the Stanhope.
Better hands, less busy dials (mainly eliminating the numbered second track), and beautiful integrated colors.
I am especially glad the chose a manual wind as well because it means I can guiltless sit out buying it!
Very tasteful use of color for all 3. The accents for each to offset the main colors just elevate them that much more. Think these are a win, with the pistachio my favorite by just enough!
