Fears Bristol Leather Strap Fears Blue
£145 inc. VAT / £120.83 ex. VAT (non-EU)
Hand crafted from a special premium leather we call "Bristol Leather" these are Fears' premium range of watch straps - denoted by the new Fears Blue lining.
The outer leather is tanned in Fears' historic home city of Bristol by Britain's oldest vegetable tannery - Thomas Ware & Sons. Thomas Ware & Sons were founded in 1840 - 6 years before Fears - and we believe both our businesses did business together during the past century.
Each straps start life with a matt finish which polishes up naturally as they are worn, getting better with wear. The straps are hand made in a family-run Belgium atelier who have specialised in making watch straps for over 40 years.
All Fears Bristol Leather Straps are designed to fit both the Fears Redcliff and Brunswick watches as well as all watches with a 20mm lug width - please email us before order if you'd like to confirm if the strap will fit your watch.
As with all straps made by Fears, the Fears Bristol Leather Straps feature Quick-Release spring bars to allow them to be fitted to the watch with no tools in a matter of moments. The straps are fastened with your choice of either a Stainless Steel or Dual-Gold plated pin buckle.

Caring for your Fears Strap
Fears Bristol Leather Straps are hand crafted in Belgium by a family run atelier using our special Bristol Leather made for Fears. A strap will usually last for approximately 12 months, though how it's looked after will affect this greatly.
How to care for a Fears Bristol Leather Strap
- At the end of the day when taking the watch off, use a clean cloth to wipe any excess moisture from the whole strap
- As with any leather watch strap you should avoid it coming into contact with water, salt or perspiration
- Try and avoid excess flexing of the strap as this can result in the leather cracking or creasing un-necessarily
