Banzare and its Namesake

The FARER Banzare GMT, named after the British Australian New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition, was a significant research mission from 1929 to 1931. Led by Sir Douglas Mawson, it mapped the Antarctic coastline and discovered Mac. Robertson Land, and Princess Elizabeth Land, and conducted extensive studies in geology, oceanography, meteorology, zoology, and botany.

Crafted with beautiful detail, the dial boasts a captivating deep-ridged sunburst texture, meticulously stamped to create a three-dimensional masterpiece. A transparent enamel polished lacquer is delicately applied, casting a glossy sheen over the textured surface. The result? A dial that dances with light, shifting from a luxurious plum hue to a metallic mulberry, reminiscent of bark glistening in the sun.

Accentuating this exquisite dial are polished steel markers filled with luminous Super-LumiNova, paired with a sleek sword handset and a polished seconds hand featuring a distinctive blue Farer ‘A’ tip. Adding a bold touch of contrast is the striking orange GMT hand, complemented by a vibrant blue 24-hour scale.
