Introducing the Brunswick Blue: a new level of detail and finishing for Fears.
Taking over a year of development, the new Brunswick Blue perfectly encapsulates the Fears ethos of
The watch's dial goes through 56 different processes, resulting in a subtle yet enchanting new face. With three different layers, two colours of printing and two complementary finishes, the real beauty and detail of this dial lies in
the second glance.
Each Brunswick Blue is hand built in Britain by expert watchmakers.
Due to the way each watch is hand-built, all Brunswick Blue's are made in small batches with great care and attention in the UK.

Visible though the exhibition case back is the Brunswick's Swiss made top-grade ETA 7001 mechanical movement. The plates have been decorated with Côtes de Genève (Geneva Stripes) before a golden Fears 'Pipette' is attached.
Just like Fears watches in the past this reliable movement requires winding by hand to give it its power.
The Brunswick BLue features a skeletonised version of our distinctive 'Fears hands' - a shape of watch hand we made in the 1940s - featuring a slim, straight body ending in an elegant tip.
Each set of hands are made entirely in the UK. First the shape is laser cut from steel before being bevelled and polished by a watchmaker. They are then Rhodium plated to match the Rhodium plated applied numerals.
The 38mm cushion-shaped case is one of the most elegant shapes a watch can take.
Its beauty comes at a cost though as those beautiful curves and surfaces create many complications in its construction with numerous hours spent on finishing and polishing each case. The case features only a single flat surface - the rear sapphire crystal.
The Brunswick Blue’s dial is made from a special galvanic blue colour that we call Fears Blue.
The application is particularly volatile, resulting a high failure rate. The advantage of using a galvanising process to produce the colour is the way it reacts to light, becoming almost luminescent.
