Introducing two new FARER aqua compressors the Endeavour Ocean White and the Hecla Carmine Red alongside the popular black Endeavour, these three models stand out as Farer's purpose-built dive watches. In addition to their craftsmanship, this release maintains a commitment to marine conservation, with a portion of each Aqua Compressor sale contributing to the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust.

Boasting a 300m depth rating, the Aqua Compressor utilizes water pressure to compress gaskets as it descends, making it an ideal dive watch for underwater exploration. Housing the Sellita SW200-1 movement, this Swiss automatic caliber features a bespoke wave-engraved rotor visible through the sapphire exhibition case back. Adjusted for accuracy in three positions, it operates at 4Hz with a power reserve of approximately 38 hours.

The Endeavour Ocean White introduces a fresh perspective to the Aqua Compressor line, featuring a fully lumed dial and bezel. The Grade X1 Super-LumiNova on white surfaces, paired with jet-black details, creates optimal low-light legibility. Recessed minute track and applied hour markers add depth, while the subtle wave pattern beneath the lume enhances its appeal as a practical dive watch.
