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: 38 mm, stainless steel, brushed and polished, 20mm lug width
  • Dial: White polished lacquer, with black printing
  • Strap: Fears Blue, barenia calf leather, handmade / 5-link, stainless steel bracelet with screw links and butterfly clasp
  • Movement: ETA 7001, time only, manual winding
  • Water Resistance: 100 metres (10 ATM)

CASE

The Brunswick’s elegant 38mm cushion-shaped case has no flat surfaces, with even the solid caseback having a gentle sweep. The case’s glancing curves are machined from 316L stainless steel in Hong Kong, 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 our bespoke ‘onion’-shaped winding crown, signed with the Fears Cypher. The crown’s fine 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.

Down at 6 o’clock is the subsidiary seconds dial, and below it is proudly printed ‘England’ to recognise the fact that every Fears watch is hand built in England.

HANDS

The Brunswick features iconic Fears’-shaped hands expertly made in Germany. Skeletonised and finished in blue using physical vapor deposition, the colour of the hands changes from almost black to electric blue in the light.

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. Each movement features blued screws and Côtes de Genève striping.

STRAP 

The Brunswick 38 Polar White is fitted with a handmade Fears Blue strap crafted from Barenia leather with tonal stitching, lending a contemporary feel to the watch.

The premium leather used for this strap takes its name from the village of Barr in Alsace, from where it originates. Traditionally used for saddles, this smooth calfskin leather requires a complex tanning process, known by only a small number of craftsmen.

Lined in genuine Alcantara® dyed a deep shade of blue, this lining is supremely soft against the skin yet resistant against wear. This strap is finished with Fears' new bespoke pin buckle (featuring the Fears Cipher).

Customise

You can customise your Brunswick 38 with any strap designed for a 20mm lug width, including any strap from our range, which you can easily fit yourself without tools.

BRACELET

The Brunswick 38 can also be fitted to a bespoke stainless steel 5-link bracelet with expertly brushed and polished links.

Featuring solid screw links, the bracelet has a substantial feel while the silky-smooth movement of the links ensure a comfortable fit around the wrist. The bracelet can be micro-adjusted with both the 8 mm and 6 mm links provided, ensuring a perfect fit. The bracelet is secured to the wrist using a trigger-release butterfly style clasp with the Bristol flower enamelled discreetly inside the blades.

The Brunswick 38 features a 20 mm lug width and is designed to fit all of the straps in our range. The bracelet can be removed without tools using its quick-release springbars.

The perfect fit!

We can adjust the bracelet size for you before sending it. Please contact us by email with your order number and wrist size and we’ll do the rest. We will provide any spare links in an envelope with your watch.

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.

AMOS BOX

The entire Fears core collection is now presented in a slim, rectangular, wooden box made of solid ash and stained in our bespoke Fears Blue colour. This luxury box was inspired by traditional slim Fears watch boxes used in the past, in which the watch lay flat. Recognising the companies heritage, we called this box the Amos, after the 2nd and 3rd Managing Directors.

The top of the box is discretely engraved with the Fears logo and features a gentle bevel around its edges, whilst the interior is lined in genuine cream suede. The box is secured by a polished chrome push button, keeping your watch safe and secure.

ENGRAVED PERSONAL TO YOU

Fears offers an engraving service whereby a watch can be made personal to its new owner. We work with one of the UK's leading 3D laser engravers who can engrave initials, a date, or a special verse on your watch.
