The Fears Christopher Ward: Alliance 01 is a special jump hour watch built in collaboration with fellow British brand Christopher Ward.

Supporting British watchmaking

Created for the Alliance of British Watch & Clock Makers, the trade association for the UK watch industry, 100% of the profits from the sale of this watch will go to help fund the Alliance’s mission of promoting horological education at home and British watchmaking abroad.
The Alliance 01 is housed in an entirely new 40.5 mm Brunswick case made specially for this watch. With the same beautiful, expert finishing as the rest of the Fears collection, the Alliance 01 sits comfortably on the wrist, slipping under a shirt cuff with ease. Powered by Christopher Ward’s in-house JJ01 jumping hour module, the hour is displayed in a window at 12 o’clock in a bespoke version of our “Edwin’ typeface, with minutes indicated by a conventional hand.

Only 50 Alliance 01 watches will be made. Retailing at £3,950 inc. VAT (£3,291.67 ex. VAT), they will go on sale at 3 pm GMT on Friday 27th January.
