OMG, 2 companies based in GB and building Swiss watches. Very different looks, love both of these brands, but we all know that CW is no longer a microbrand. Farer it is.

Farer is doing something fresh and I agree that CW is one of those borderline brands that plays in both the micro and large independent world (depending on who you ask), so it is hard to compare.

I like both and have owned two CWs but for me Farer has got the edge.

If CW removed the name from their dials and went with the icon logo I'd have voted for them.

Honestly, that’s my biggest hang-up along with the fact it’s changed a couple times over the years.  Formex is also guilty of this, but at least it takes up less space. 
 

I know CW makes a hell of a watch at a great value, truly, but we all have things we get hung up on and a full name of the founder (who no longer works there) was always odd.

They have done that, starting from June all new models will just have the logo on the dial. As old stock sells the older models will transition to the logo as well. 

Personally I find Farer too "microbrand" looking for me, but we all have different tastes.

Poll closed for the tournament. Congratulations Farer for making it to the final four!
