Farer lights up latest Aqua Compressor with full lume dial

Endeavour Ocean White dive watch glows with the green of Grade X1 Super-LumiNova.

Farer has added two new styles in its Aqua Compressor dive watch collection including a piece with a full lume dial.

Aqua Compressors launched in 2017 as sleek beach-to-office steel sports watches with 60 minute unidirectional dive bezels inside their domed glass, keeping the height of the watch to 12.5mm and doing away with a cuff-catching serrated edge found on regular dive bezels.

Farer more recently made the 41mm watches in titanium, reducing their weight to 62g on their rubber straps.

Their 300 metre water resistance is achieved by a super compressor case and back, which has a a gasket that seals the watch more and more tightly as it is squeezed by increasing water pressure at greater depths.

Two models join the Aqua Compressor collection today, joining a dark blue second generation titanium model.

Most striking by day is the Hecla Carmine Red, which has a deep red dial and matching rubber strap.

It has bright white applied hour markers and hands made from a combination of ceramic and Super-LumiNova known as Lumicast and filled with ultra-bright X1 Super-LumiNova.

After dark, the Aqua Compressor Endeavour Ocean White takes centre stage with its monochrome white dial with black markers and hands lighting up in an eerie green coming from Grade X1 Super-LumiNova.

The collection uses Sellita’s SW200-1 automatic movement with a bespoke Farer rotor.

Farer watches are sold entirely online directly to consumers.

The latest Aqua Compressors are priced at £1075 / $1190 on rubber straps or a titanium bracelet is available for an additional £235 / $245.

Farer has been raising money by donating a share of profits from Aqua Compressor watch sales for several years to the marine conservation charity Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust, which works to protect the future of Scottish Hebridean marine life.

The company has already raised £43,500 with its first and second series Aqua Compressors and hopes to take that total to £50,000 with sales of the new models.
