The Favre-Leuba Raider Harpoon rewrites the notion of a diver’s watch. Angus Davies explores the various features of this interesting timepiece from the historical brand which has been designing watches for over 280 years.

Most watches feature conventional hour and minute hands. Occasionally, there may be a seconds function or an additional complication, but the prevailing time is usually imparted with two hands. However, in recent years an increasing number of companies have dabbled with other means of expressing the time. The likes of HYT, MB&F and MCT are just a few of the high profile players who have redefined how we look at the time. Now, there is a new entrant to this prestigious club, Favre-Leuba.

The Favre-Leuba Raider Harpoon features two hands, a minute hand and a central sweep seconds hand but the hours are communicated using a rotating disc which works closely with the minute hand to indicate the time.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
