If you're anything like us, you often find yourself reaching for a watch that’s not in your collection, but you're not quite sure what you’re looking for. You want something unique, with personality and a story to tell. But it also needs to be versatile enough for everyday wear and ready for any spontaneous adventure.


Farer’s popular monopusher GMT chronographs, the Cobb and Segrave, embody these qualities perfectly. Each model returns with an exciting new feature: a GMT complication. This rare combination makes each watch feel like two in one. Let’s dive into what makes these watches stand out.


 

FARER MONOPUSHER GMT COLLECTION


Original Design Language



The Segrave features a monochrome dial with subtle color accents, designed for a more conservative yet symmetrical layout. At first glance, the dial seems simple, but a closer look reveals its complexity. The black gravel texture, Lumicast batons, and fully graduated white minute track with blue markers create a sophisticated look. The 24-hour scale on the sloped rehaut complements the orange central GMT hand, and the framed date window at three o’clock matches the dial color. Beveled polished batons for hour and minute hands, painted black at the base to float above the dial, add to the elegance. The mid-blue chronograph seconds counterhand, 30-minute counter at twelve o'clock, and small seconds subdial at six o’clock complete the intricate design.


 

Personality and Brand Aesthetic



The Cobb, with its adventurous blue and cream color scheme, offers a playful and versatile look. The sky blue sunburst dial, polished batons filled with Super-LumiNova, and matte cream subdials create a vibrant and easy-to-wear watch. The layout, with a 30-minute counter at twelve o’clock and running seconds at nine o’clock, is complemented by a framed date window at three o’clock with a cream date wheel. Glossy navy blue tapered hands filled with cream Super-LumiNova and a polished GMT hand with a glossy blue arrow filled with yellow lume add to the charm. The bright orange chronograph seconds hand and matching elements create a cohesive and lively design.


 

Backstory and Heritage



Both watches use a 41mm steel case with a total thickness of 14.5mm, including a double-domed sapphire crystal to accommodate the four hands on the central spindle. The sporty brushed finish on the case top and polished sides engraved with a crosshatched ‘harlequin’ pattern add to the distinctive look. The 100m water resistance ensures durability for any adventure. The Segrave and Cobb feature different hand-wound Sellita movements due to their subdial layouts. The Segrave uses the SW536 M MP, while the Cobb has the SW530 M MP, both offering a 62-hour power reserve and identical features, except for the jewel count due to the additional gear train in the Segrave.


 

Versatility and Durability
