Farer Universal's Cobb, Eldridge, and Segrave Chronographs

Post by AtomicTom » Mon Sep 10, 2018 10:02 am

Did everyone have time to see these new Farer Chronographs already?

Seems like there are three nice models. Which include the Cobb with it's big eye
set-up, aqua color theme, and "night sky" blue dial. The Eldridge with brown "silk
chocolate" dial and blue accents, and Segrave with reverse panda style with orange,
and green accents.

On top of that, you have 39mm stainless steel cases, 100m WR, AR coated sapphire
crystals, markers, and hands coated in Super-Luminova, American Horween leather
straps, and exhibition case-back showing you the 27 jewel Elabore caliber ETA 2894-2
beneath.

Just a few pictures...

I like the "skipper" vibe on the one on the left side. I just can't get past their different color crowns.

Looks good. As mentioned, the different color crown kinda bothers me, but maybe it’s not that bad IRL.

I can’t on my phone - is the Seagrave dial black or a deep Navy Blue?

I love them and glad they are back to the full bronze crown. I can’t decide if I prefer the blue Or brown version.
I’m a huge fan of Farer and love my two GMTs. Great quality. Dials are fantastic even under a loupe and case finish is great. Wear mine a lot and the polished sides hardly show any wear.
I was gonna buy the Hecla diver but was waiting for the Chrono release. Doesn’t disappoint but wonder if size will be too small. That said they offer free returns.

I’ve really wanted to try one. I may like this more than the gmt.

I really like this offering. I hope that bronze crown has steel threads though.

I want to like them, but I'd much rather have a longines chrono, like the big eye, in that price range.

Amazing right guys?!! :) 8-) Seems like everything Farer does hits on all
cylinders. It's actually to the point where it's near impossible choosing
what watch is the nicest from them. Because every model is thought out,
and done so nicely !


Really glad everyone enjoyed them so much !!! :salute:
