The Farer Discovery Black Velvet 36mm is a Swiss automatic watch that effortlessly combines sophistication with functionality. This timepiece draws its name from its striking matte black dial, a deep shade that beautifully contrasts with its polished hands and markers, which come alive in a brilliant white when touched by light. The seconds hand, jet black with a floating white Farer ‘A’ at its tip, adds a touch of uniqueness, while ice-blue Grade X1 Super-LumiNova fills the hands and markers, ensuring optimal legibility even in the dark.
Designed to adapt seamlessly from casual to formal settings, the Discovery Black Velvet features a 36mm marine-grade 316L stainless steel case with a mix of brushed and polished finishes. Its slender profile, measuring just 10.4mm thick with a lug length of 41.2mm, guarantees comfort throughout the day.
Underneath, an exhibition caseback reveals the La Joux-Perret G101 movement – a Swiss caliber known for its reliability, accuracy, and impressive 68-hour power reserve. This means you can wear it on a Friday night and trust it to keep ticking until Monday morning.
Inspired by the Royal Research Ship Discovery, which made pioneering contributions to marine science, this watch captures the spirit of exploration and innovation. Priced at $995, the Farer Discovery Black Velvet 36mm combines style, precision, and history in one elegant timepiece.
