Warming to the brand. Their watches seem colourful and fun but well made. I’m looking at this watch as a fun summer dress watch. Great colour and lume.

I think these look great. I’m tempted to finally pull the trigger on a Lander in the next few months.

I really like this watch! Nice finish and specs. It's the first time I heard about that movement (La Joux-Perret G101), should be a good choice for the value?

I like Farer's design language and there are several models which give me a warm curly feeling but I'm yet to commit.
C60 MKI, MKII, MKIII: "some",
C6 & C60 Kingfishers,
C600 Tritechs,
C63 "some",
C65 "some",
C4, C40, C8, C9, C3, C5, C20FLE
Some other brands

This is a new movement with a fashionable today's increased power reserve of up to 70 hours. Compared to the Powermatic from ETA, it has Vibrations Per Hour - 28,800 bph (4Hz).

In my opinion, CW should consider this caliber as a replacement for the SW200, as the obsolescence of this movement is a weak point of CW watches compared to SG and SIEKO products.

For reference. The manufacturer of this caliber - La Joux-Perret belongs to the Japanese Citizen. It is therefore not surprising that the caliber is very close to the Miyota 9039, but with a better case finish

I own a Farer watch I posted a review here somewhere, they are indeed unusual watches with their colour designs I chose a more conservative one. As a company I found them really easy to deal with they kept to a specific delivery date that I requested. The watch came in a nice watch travel case rather than a watch box something I find more useful and just an outer plain box.

The watch itself I found to be well made the only downside I felt was the crown felt a bit flimsy though that maybe down to the handwind movement itself but just something to be aware of. I had considered getting one of their handwind chronographs but from a personal view I am a little tired of the whole watch buying thing so have never committed to buying another.

In regards to overall quality I would say they are along side brands like Stowa and Stowa are one of my favorite brands so see that as a complement.

I presume you're referring to this review that you wrote last summer - Farer Lethbridge.

The missus certainly likes the Farer Milan, it's got an unusual cushion case and punchy green dial. I'll have to resist the urge to commandeer it.
C63 Sealander - Hunter Green. Twelve Ti -Purple. C65 Aquitaine - Seagrass Green. On order: C63 SH21 Blue Marine (delayed 4 months plus 3 months. So far). C1 Bel Canto - Voila (delayed). Waiting. Endless waiting.

I have to say that I am very happy with my Lethbridge. Its only issue is that I LOVE swapping straps, and I can't find anything to match to it that isn't blue (or the bracelet)! :D

Looks beautiful on that bracelet. Wow! A purple or green would go well with the blue I think (if a similar shade - not too bright or dark)

Thanks. I’ll have a go - I need no encouragement to buy more straps! :D
