BRUNSWICK "MIDAS" Polar White

SKU: BS23801

£3,950 inc. VAT / £3,291.67 ex. VAT (non-EU)

 

The Fears Brunswick "Midas" is our flagship watch.

 

This beautiful golden Brunswick is the result of months of painstaking development and experimenting to achieve the perfect shade of gold. This warm gold we’ve created is reminiscent of the old Fears rolled-gold watches we use to make in the last century. Not as bright as modern yellow gold nor as pink as modern rose gold.

 

We’ve achieved the unique colour of the Brunswick “Midas” by starting with a case that’s machined from a solid block of Phosphor Bronze. This marine-grade Bronze is then coated in a thick layer of 18ct Rose gold before a top coat of 9ct Yellow gold is applied. The two layers of different carat-weights and colours of gold result in this special tone. A process we call dual-gold.

 

The Fears Brunswick "Midas" is presented with a Polar White dial, which has a beautiful depth and surface finish quite unlike any other white dial. The dual-gold hands and case give the dial an almost ivory appearance.

     

    Our flagship watch is available on a choice of special leather straps made from "Bristol Leather" which is tanned in Fears' historic home city of Bristol by one of Britain's oldest tanneries - Thomas Ware & Sons. These straps start life with a matt finish and then polish up naturally as they are worn, getting better with wear.

     

    The three three hues we've created each complements the dial and hands perfectly and are available in two sizes:

     

    • "Standard" fits wrists measuring 178 - 210mm (approx. 7 - 8¾ inches)
    • "Shorter" fits wrists measuring 164 - 197mm (approx. 6½ - 7½ inches)

     

    SHIPPING: All orders from Fears come with complimentary Worldwide shipping (not including local country's duties & customs)
