The contemporary Fears watch.

Hand built in England.

Taking its name from the Bristol street where the company was first founded in 1846, the new Fears Redcliff Collection is designed to be an elegant and sophisticated everyday timepiece. 

  • Case: 39.5mm, 316L stainless steel, brushed and polished, 20mm lug width
  • Dial: Raven black, sunburst, white printing with silver accents
  • Bracelet: 3-link, stainless steel bracelet with screw links and fold-over clasp with micro-adjust / black, buffalo leather, handmade (plus black textile strap)
  • Movement: LJP G100, time and date, automatic, 68hr power reserve
  • Water Resistance: 150 metres (15 ATM)


The Redcliff 39.5 Date is housed in a contemporary round case with integrated lugs alongside a screw-down case back, bezel and crown. Spanning 39.5mm in diameter yet with a case thickness of only 9.98mm, this slim case combines a bushed middle-section with the polished finish of the bezel's graceful profile. The proportions of the case and its integrated lugs help ensure the watch will perfectly fit the contours of any wrist.


The Redcliff 39.5 Date Raven Black features a sophisticated black dial that takes inspiration from the black feathers of a raven bird. 

Expertly made in Germany, the main section of the dial features a sunburst finish to the surface with a finely-milled CNC grooves on the lowered chapter ring. Bold silver and white printing contrasts strongly against the natural darkness of the galvanic-coated dial.

At 3 o’clock a date window is cut into the dial revealing a colour-matched date disc featuring numerals in our own bespoke ‘Edwin’ typeset. The window itself features a shallow bevel running around all four sides to aide legibility whilst reading the date and gives the optical illusion of it appearing larger.

The baton indexes are crafted from a block of brass before being diamond polished and coated in precious rhodium. The 12 o'clock index also features a subtle reference to another great Bristolian historical reference (the shape and form of the towers that hoist the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge). 

Each indices has been hand-filled with X1-Grade Super-LumiNova in Switzerland before being carefully hand-applied to the dial. 


The Redcliff 39.5 Date's distinctive ‘Fears’-shaped hands are tri-bevelled and diamond polished before in this example being finished in a coating of rhodium (thus matching the indices).

During the day the tri-bevelled edges will catch the light brilliantly, allowing the time to be read easily. Whilst in low-light conditions, the bright X1-Grade lume (a first for the core collection) glows with a strong blue colour colour and stays charged throughout the night - making for the perfect travelling companion.   


The Redcliff 39.5 Date is powered by a customised Swiss-made, automatic La Joux-Perret G100 movement. Winding itself when worn on the wrist this movement features a quick-set date, a generous power reserve of 68 hours and a decorated winding rotor concealed by a closed case back. 


The Redcliff 39.5 Date comes with both a bespoke 3-link stainless steel bracelet or a black buffalo leather strap, and with either choice will also be accompanied by and a 3D-woven textile strap.


Featuring solid screw links, the bracelet combines brushed and polished elements and has a substantial feel while the silky-smooth movement of the links ensure a comfortable fit around the wrist. The bracelet can be adjusted for a perfect fit with both 6mm and 8mm screw links but also adjusted 'on the move' via a push button micro-adjustment featured located within the trigger-release fold-over clasp. This ensures a comfortable fit always.

The perfect fit!

Leather Strap

Each Redcliff 39.5 Date Raven Black can be fitted with a handmade Raven Black strap crafted from Buffalo leather (sourced from the Himalayas), lending a more sophisticated feel to the watch. This premium leather is some of the strongest and most durable available which makes it perfect for our sportier Brunswick.

This leather has been tanned in the same way it has been for centuries, using organic materials (and not modern techniques that utilise chemicals). It is not stretched during the tanning process, so is thicker more hard-wearing as a result.

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 Cypher).

Extra Strap

Included with each Redcliff 39.5 Date is a woven textile strap made from a tightly 3D woven nylon material with an Alcantara lining, quick-release spring bars and finished with Fears' new bespoke pin buckle (featuring the Fears Cypher). 


You can customise your Redcliff 39.5 Date with any strap designed for a 20mm lug width, including any strap from our range, which you can easily fit yourself without tools.


    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.


    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.


    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.
