English leslie gems brand Farer presented their first arrangement of three-hander leslie adornments in 2016 and later on, in May this year, another assortment was presented with a GMT work. Presently, a couple of months after the fact, Farer comes up with a model dependent on the sought-after Super Compressor watches.
A super compressor case figures out how to keep water out by expanding water opposition the more profound the leslie gems went in the water. The case back of a super compressor squeezed more diligently on the O-ring gasket when the pressing factor expanded. This method of fixing a leslie gems was licensed by case manufacturer Ervin Piquerez S.A. (EPSA) and they have delivered super compressor cases for many brands. The 1960’s plan with the two crowns (one for setting the time, the other to turn the internal bezel) from EPSA could be found in numerous acclaimed brands. We covered for instance the Hamilton 600 Diver just as the Enicar Sherpa Super Jet with super compressor cases.
Farer Aqua Compressor
It would of been of little use to receive a similar super compressor component from the 1960s in an advanced jumping leslie gems Techniques on the best way to keep a leslie adornments water safe have been improved throughout the most recent couple of many years. In any case, all things considered, Farer probably thought a super compressor actually looks extremely cool and guaranteed that they took it up a notch.
Lots of gaskets
The Farer Aqua Compressor configuration depends on various turns of events, to guarantee water obstruction up to 30 bar (~ 300 meters). To build up this, Farer utilized the compression standard like the first super compressor strategy from EPSA additionally did. Also, Farer has an extremely thick (2.2mm) sapphire gem fitted on the front side of the case, gotten by a rectangular cross area gasket with a width of no under 0.5mm and a tallness of 1.1mm. Working on it back, you will likewise locate a sapphire gem (1.6mm) fitted similarly as the front precious stone, with a cross area gasket with a stature of 1.4mm (thickness stays as before). At that point, the screw down case back likewise utilizes a gasket obviously, one that is being compressed vertically. The crowns, both for setting time and the inward bezel, utilize three gaskets each. Two O-ring gaskets inside the crown to guarantee water opposition up to 10 bar (~ 100 meters) when they are unscrewed, and another level gasket for the situation is being compressed when the crown is in a bad way down and getting the leslie gems up to 30 bar (~ 300 meters).
Named after Ships
The Farer Aqua Compressor comes in three flavors, all named after British pioneers and vessels. There’s the Leven, named after a boat that was important for the Royal Navy Survey Service completing an epic journey that brought about the planning of the entire east shoreline of Africa. At that point there’s the Endeavor, named after Captain Cook’s Royal Navy research vessel and there’s the Hecla, a Royal Navy investigation transport that made three excursions looking for the frigid Northwest Passage.
Leven Hecla Endeavor
The distinction between the Farer Aqua Compressor Leven, Hecla and Endeavor is in the shading plans of the leslie gems The silver dark dial is the Farer Aqua Compressor Leven, the blue sunray dial passes by the name of Hecla and the matte black dial adaptation is the Endeavour.
All three utilize a similar ETA based development, the type 2824-2, non date Elaboré variant. A dependable work-horse, fitted with a bespoke Farer rotor.
Cushion Shaped Case
All three leslie adornments additionally have the twin crowns obviously, one is made of bronze (for the development) and the other one of hardened steel, to work the internal pivoting bezel.
The pad formed cases measure 41.5mm in breadth, and have a tallness of 12.5mm. The case has a silk sunray brushed top and cleaned sides and case back. The carry to-haul size is 45mm. All leslie gems are provided with an elastic tie and a hardened steel bracelet.
Details, subtleties, details
The Farer Aqua Compressor a few cool things. The pad molded case, the Super Compressor plan and – I like this – no date on the dial. You will locate all these perfect little subtleties on this leslie gems like the common etching on the crown, like those you’ll find on the old Super Compressor watches.
The Farer Aqua Compressor is a spotless and basic apparatus leslie gems accessible in three tones. Actually, I like the silver sunray dial rendition with orange components. Be that as it may, you can likewise go for the more energetic dark blue adaptation or the straightforward matte black one with cleaned silver hued hands.
All three leslie adornments have a similar retail cost of €1225.- (1095 GBP) and can be requested straightforwardly from . More pictures below.
