Introducing the Farer Automatic GMT

One of Our Favorite Indie Watch Brands Made a GMT Watch That’s Actually Affordable


Though indie watch brand Farer has only been around since late 2015, it’s quickly become one of our favorites in the space for its reasonably priced, well-proportioned and retro-looking watches. After initially launching a series of quartz three-hand and GMT watches, then adding an automatic series into the mix, Farer has just launched a new trio of automatic GMTs.

The new GMT takes on the same look and shape as the rest of Farer’s watches, with a 39.5mm case (that’s only 10mm thick!), a bronze crown and a selection of retro dial designs that mimic the look and of mid-century tool watches. Inside is an ETA 2893-2 Top Grade movement (“top grade” here means it’s accurate to +/-4 seconds a day) decorated with Perle and Colimaçonne finishing techniques.

The best part? At $1,450, they’re some of the most affordable mechanical GMTs you can buy. Given that most other automatic GMTs start around $2,000, you get a lot of watch for the money.
