The classic Fears watch.
Hand built in Britain in small batches.

Graceful and complex, the curvaceous Brunswick is an exacting object to create. It takes its inspiration from a gentleman’s cushion case watch in the Fears archives, first made in 1924.

CASE

The Brunswick’s elegant 38mm cushion-shaped case has only one flat surface - the rear sapphire glass. Its glancing curves are machined from 316L stainless steel in Germany, to a level usually reserved for precious metals. The depth of the polish belies the sophistication of the machinery and the skill of the operator.

The Brunswick is manually wound each day using a traditional ‘onion’-shaped winding crown. Made in Switzerland, the crown’s grooves catch the light, adding a touch of radiance to the edge of the case.

DIAL

The Brunswick White features a hand-polished white lacquer dial, expertly made in Germany by one of the world’s finest dial makers. After the layers of white lacquer are applied, multiple layers of crisp black ink bring the dial to life using a numeral set first used by Fears in 1946.

HANDS

The Brunswick’s distinctive ‘Fears’-shaped hands are finished by a watchmaker, giving them a depth and detail not found in mass-produced, stamped watch hands. Each set of hands is subtly skeletonised before being thermally blued by a flame. This traditional method of thermally hardening the steel results in a blue unique to each Brunswick, from almost black to electric blue in the light.

Fears is one of only a handful of British watch brands that construct watch hands in-house, in the UK.

MOVEMENT

The Brunswick is powered by a Swiss made, manual winding ETA 7001 movement. This accurate movement was first designed in the 1970s, and its reliability has ensured its continuing popularity today. We service and finish each movement in Britain, with Côtes de Genève striping and Rhodium plating. Once the movement has been re-assembled and thoroughly tested, it receives Fears’ ‘Golden Pipette’, which is handmade and applied to the bridge.

STRAP

Each Brunswick White is paired with a handmade Bristol Leather strap in Fears Blue. This premium strap uses calf leather that has been vegetable tanned in Britain’s oldest vegetable tannery, Bristol’s Thomas Ware & Sons. Its stainless steel pin buckle is subtly engraved with our ‘Pipette’ logo. The Brunswick is designed to fit all of the straps in our range, which you can easily fit yourself without tools.

Please note that if the strap size you desire is out of stock, then please order the other size and contact us, and we will send your watch with the correct strap.

INDIVIDUALLY NUMBERED

Each watch we make carries a unique serial number. Engraved between the 20mm lugs at 12 o’clock, this number helps us identify your watch and its history.

BRITISH BOX

For decades Fears presented watches in a dark blue box with a cream-coloured lining. We are delighted to continue this tradition today.

The Brunswick White is presented in a bespoke wooden box, crafted in Britain from English Ash, which is stained Fears Blue. Lined in genuine cream suede, the watch sits proudly on a special cushion. With minimal branding, the outside of the lid reveals a hidden map of Brunswick Square when held in a certain light.

ENGRAVED PERSONAL TO YOU

Fears offers an engraving service whereby a watch can be made personal to its new owner. Our master hand engraver, based in London’s Mayfair, can engrave initials, a date, or a special verse on your watch.
