Farerís latest release is a limited and very blue take on the Oxley GMT. For Farer, the GMT complication gets at the heart of what the brand is all about. The name of the brand itself is a reference to travel, and Farer has put much thought and energy into crafting several well received travel watches, not to mention the World Timer that launched last year at the NYC Wind-Up. The new watch, dubbed the Oxley Silver Limited Edition, feels immediately at home in the larger Farer collection. Letís get into it.

While the name of the watch references the silver sunray dial, this watch is really all about tones of blue. Inspired by the Pop Art movement, Farer has used several different shades of blue on the hands, numerals, and dial accents to give the watch a clean, modern aesthetic. Deep blue hour markers and numerals in the now familiar Farer typeface are offset by a 24 hour scale in an even deeper blue, with pale blue numerals. Lume on the syringe hour and minute hands is any icey blue as well, complementing the powder blue seconds hand. Yes, itís a lot of blue, and it easily could have been a mess had the tones chosen not been just right, but in typical Farer fashion, theyíve made all the right decisions, and have created a dial that is exceptionally well balanced.




Dial details and finishing are just as well executed as the color palette. To drive home the vintage vibe, the dial is delicately curved and has been given an extremely fine sunray treatment radiating from the center, while the 24 hour scale has been given a contrasting crosshatch pattern. Printing on the seconds and minutes scales is extremely sharp and well executed, as are the dial signatures.
The case of the Oxley Silver Limited Edition has a diameter of 39.5mm and is just 10mm thick, and has been fashioned from marine grade steel. The case sides are polished, while the tops of the lugs are vertically brushed, and the Sellita SW330-1 movement is visible through a display caseback. To make this limited edition of just 150 watches truly special, Farerís traditional bronze crown has been replaced with one in matching 316L steel, finishing off the exceptionally clean look of the watch.




For a relatively new brand, Farer has quickly carved out an easily identifiable aesthetic and design language. The Oxley and other watches in their collection have themes that run through them, even if they don’t look much alike on the surface. The subtle vintage cues from a typeface, the use of bronze on the crown in every watch in their lineup besides the one you see here, and the design of the hands and implementation of multiple dial finishings all contribute to a cohesive and exciting collection of watches. The Oxley Silver Limited Edition, while a bit more monochromatic than some other Farers, is no less visually interesting, and represents the same dedication to getting the details just right.
