i'll say it: i know outside the box color is part of their brand identity, but that subdial seconds hand choice ruins an otherwise solid design---both functionally and aesthetically---imo

These guys, along with Monta and Halios, are at the top of the micro pile imo.

To many colors for me. But I like what they are doing.

I like the color palate and all that Farer is doing to give themselves their own identity. As mentioned before, I promised myself to never consider a micro, but these don't feel like your typical micro... I hope they get enough traction to give Bremont a run for their money.

Seriously considering the GMT.

I will say I've worn this one more than anything since getting it. Stunning in person and really a comfortable wear, silky bracelet etc. They put out a high quality product, 5 yr warranty, hell they even state a 30 day return period for free. Pretty awesome. I also think it's cool they will engrave your watch free of charge. ImageImage

I'm with you... I like the look of the cob
(maybe it's because I've been hunting for a blue dialed chrono as of late)

Just arrived yesterday, but love it. The detailed finishing, particularly when viewed from the side, shows so much attention. I always liked the Chocolate Speedy, and this conveys that same different color that appealed to me. The funny thing: my wife just laughs at me and my watches, but this was the one she said, "Do it." I think she will wear it as much as I do. It has a very modern vibe to a classic look. What the hell, you have 30 days if you don't like it.

I have long given up on micros, but the Farer(s) have been the only watches that have led to me buying one. No regrets so far.

I love their style. Hands down my fave new micro.

Love the sides of the case. Almost reminds me of the H Moser et Cie case with the scooped out blasted sides. Got any pics of yours? Did you buy from Farer direct? Seems they are like 1900 usd shipped overnight. Plus duties I assume.

I’ll take some photos this weekend. I did buy direct from Farer—purchased on Saturday, shipped Monday, and in my hands Wednesday. No duties.

Do it Eric.
I love mine and if I could I’d also get the Blue Cobb. The case work is awesome and so is the finish. I like the 2894 and glad it’s not another V7750, it’s different but it’s also thinner. Farer regulates their mvts and mine keeps good time. Also their dials are awesome, with great colors and nice crisp finish. They always offer different versions, some more colorful than others so those with more conservative taste and wanting just a little pop can find one they like too. Their warranty and CS is strong too.
Merde Alors! Et Vive Les Francais! :)

Let's be honest, the bar is pretty low. Most micros are either poorly designed poo-poo or blatant rip-offs of popular designs. Farer seems to have taken a different approach - fairly traditional but attractive designs spiced up with unique color accents. I think several of them - including the one in the video - look very nice. I prefer to stay away from micros but these guys seem to be getting a lot right.

Agree. You can probably add just a few more small companies, but not many... I've said this before though I think those copycat companies must be able to make money or they'd try harder to be original.

Steinhart being the one who did some more original stuff but seems to be heavily focused on copies of designs.

Seems like the discussion has swung over to micros in general; pretty happy with the Hammerhead.
