The vintage Fears watch
Year produced: 2019
Pieces produced: 100
A limited-edition watch created to commemorate the first 1,000 days since Fears relaunched.
The Redcliff “Streamline” featured a slim, elegant, 38mm round case. Machined from 316L stainless steel in Switzerland, the case had a high polish finish to the bezel and lugs. The case sides featured a contrasting horizontal graining, undertaken in our UK workshops.
Measuring just 8.5mm thin, the Redcliff “Streamline” was designed to slip under cuffs easily with its flat sapphire crystal.
The Redcliff “Streamline” featured our most vintage-inspired dial to date.
Taking inspiration from a watch produced by Fears in 1946 called the “Streamline”, the dial features a bespoke set of numerals picked out in gilt printing. Sparkling in the sunlight, the gilt numerals use the same typeset as the original.
The dial’s base featured a distinctive vertical graining with a special Forties Silver colour made using 18ct Gold plating. The warm, antique colour gave the Redcliff “Streamline” its own distinctive character.
HANDSThe Redcliff “Streamline” used the distinctive ‘Fears’-shaped hands, painted in a deep, gloss black. The hour and minute hands were filled with Super-LumiNova luminous materials to help with reading the time in the dark.
The central seconds hand was painted in red. This was in homage to the original, which had a red central seconds hand to aid with timing events. The seconds hand included a micro ‘Pipette’ as its counterbalance.
The Redcliff “Streamline” was powered by an all metal, Swiss made, quartz Ronda 515 movement. Supremely accurate and reliable, the Ronda 515 is powered by a mercury-free Swiss made battery.
