The Sterling Fears watch.

The Brunswick 38 'Silver Noir' is the companion piece to the '1924 Edition' that sold out instantly at the hugely successful British Watchmakers' Day event in London that has just passed.

It too takes its inspiration from this 1924 gentlemen's cushion shaped watch that inspired the modern Brunswick family of watches that launched in 2017 and features an inverse black version of the originals white dial.

Due to the success of the the '1924 Edition' and the overwhelming demand we received, we decided it was only right that we offer an alternative option for those who missed out.

The Brunswick 38 'Silver Noir' will be also be cased in the same 925 Sterling Silver, individually numbered, hallmarked and be supplied with a special owners card.

Each watch will be made-to-order (with an approximately 5 month lead-time) and the order window will remain open until 12am GMT on Sunday March 17th.

The Brunswick '1924 Edition' is housed in our elegant 38mm cushion-shaped case and is made from solid Sterling Silver. Crafted entirely from this understated metal, the case’s glancing curves are machined from 925 sterling silver with a deep polish all over, highlighting the beauty of the metal.

The case and the solid caseback each bear hallmarks from the London Assay Office, and, following a Fears tradition, these comprise the initials of the Managing Director when the watch was built (in this case: ‘NBS’ for our (4th) Managing Director, Nicholas Bowman-Scargill).

The Brunswick 38 'Silver Noir' is manually wound each day using a traditional ‘onion’-shaped winding crown, also made from solid Sterling Silver, and into which is set a flawless diamond (which on Fears watches signifies a case made entirely from a precious metal).


The Brunswick 38 'Silver Noir' features a hand-polished black lacquer dial, expertly made in Germany by one of the world’s finest dial makers. After the layers of black lacquer are applied, multiple layers of crisp white ink bring the dial to life using a numeral set inspired by the original 1920's watch from the Fears Archive. 


The Brunswick 38 'Silver Noir' features iconic ‘Fears’-shaped hands expertly made in Germany. Skeletonised and finished in a highly-polished rhodium that perfectly catches the light.


The Brunswick 38 'Silver Noir' is powered by a Swiss-made, manual winding La Joux-Perret D100 movement. This movement is the top-grade version, with an extended 50 hour power reserve and finished with Côtes de Genève and blued screws.


The Brunswick 38 'Silver Noir' is fitted with a handmade black strap crafted from Barenia leather with tonal stitching and fold-over edges, lending a premium 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.

The strap is fastened by a bespoke and matching hallmarked sterling silver pin buckle.

Lined in genuine Alcantara® dyed a deep shade of blue, this lining is supremely soft against the skin yet resistant against wear. The Brunswick is designed to fit all of the straps in 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.

    These watches also have an individual edition number engraved on the caseback.


    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 magnetically-secured, with a newly-designed push button mechanism, keeping your watch safe and secure.
