I've always questioned regulator watches. I understand the concept - in watch factories, the minute hand was more important than the hour hand for setting and regulating watches. But this concept never transferred to a watch.
This watch is the Anti-Regulator. Instead of the focus being on the minute hand, this watch only has the hour hand. It forces you to think about time differently. And for someone who routinely hacks all his watches, it is somewhat refreshing. Seriously, when someone asks you the time, you don't tell them it is precisely 19 seconds past 8:43. Instead we round up or down, and say it is quarter to nine.
The Distinct 3 changes your mindset from worrying about seconds to realizing that close is good enough. If you are a nurse who relies on a second hand to time pulses, this is not the watch for you. However, if you are like me and want a break from worrying about seconds, this is your watch.
It is also a very attractive watch, and very comfortable to wear. Oh, and that lume!
High quality strap, looks awesome paired with my AGL2, love the Ferro and Company logo on the buckle! Matches perfectly!
Beautiful watch. Good workmanship. The clock itself is quiet, only the rotor is not very audible, as to be expected from a japanese clock system. The brushed steel of the case comes into its own. The luminova coating of the dial is really easy to see at night. Overall a good watch for the value. / Founder Nr. 123
To be honest I loved it … the strap is amazing compare the price normally with that price you get a bit low quality strap … the case and the movement seems good to me the seconds moves exactly like I wanted dial catchy the orange and blue combination is beautiful… with that price can’t compare and good luck guys
An outstanding addition to my timepiece collection! I’ve been a race car fan for over 50 years and I’m very knowledgeable of the Gulf Livery. Mike
Recently purchased a Distinct 2 single hand watch from Ferro & Company. I couldn’t be happier with the quality and appearance of this beautiful and unusual timepiece. The 44mm domed crystal dial is fashionable yet light weight and comfortable enough to wear all day. Best of all, thanks to the white distinctive time markings and the red single hand, determining the time is as quick and easy as with any traditional watch. If you have been considering adding a single hand watch to your collection, I can assure you the Distinct 2 from Ferro & Company will not disappoint.
Ordered the watch and it arrived in less than 5 days which is absolutely phenomenal. I'll start off with the box: premium, minimalistic and cradles the watch securely. You also get a warranty/authenticity card and a microfiber cloth for smudges. The watch is stunning. It will attract lots of eyes. The dial is neat and there's significant eyecandy in darker environments, especially with Lume. I just wish there were instructions on how to adjust date and time, but once you unscrew the crown, it should be a walk in the park. This is my first Ferro watch, but definitely not my last.
Every time I look at my watch, I realize that I have the best looking watch on the planet :) phenomenal by day and night too
The watch is stunning. Beautiful craftsmanship. The GLF chronograph captures the 60's color scheme of the Gulf sponsored race cars.
Love the watch; not crazy about the band. I changed it out with a black band that has appearance of tire tread
Wow! This watch exceeded my expectations. It feels great on the wrist and plus it looks good. The back of the watch has a unique design style. The C3 lume is very strong. Plus, the value is great. I have been searching over a year for the most appropriate watch to go with my car. This is perfect. You will not regret the purchase.
Sleek design. Beautiful color combination. Terrific strap! And…..fantastic value.
I have over fifty watches and the quality of this watch is excellent. I'm looking forward to buying a few more.
Love this watch. Pictures don’t do justice to how great this watch looks. Plus the sizing is perfect. I have a smaller wrist and it doesn’t overwhelm. My new favorite.
Long waiting time pays off with nice surprise. I was one of the early supporters fir the project so I almost forget that I have ordered it. Communication from the company was frequent so I they have spoiled the surprise. Watch came in nice box and the unpacking it was pleasant. I have light beige strap, very soft and with nice touch. The watch itself looks amazing, the weight and look matches ideally to my car. I’ll be back! (to the store)
I just got this watch in the mail, and I'm so pleased with it! It looks great on the wrist, the band is very comfortable, and I love the dial! I've got a bunch of microbrand watches and rotate through different ones regularly. I think this one may relegate some of them to more time in the watch case while I wear this as my daily for a while.
