Since our re-launch in November 2016 Fears has received coverage across the globe, covering the company's extensive heritage through to reviews of our Redcliff and Brunswick watches.
Here are some of the highlights...
INTRODUCING THE FEARS BRUNSWICK
"Inspired by watches in the company archives, the Brunswick is just a damn good looking time-only watch."
REFOUNDING FEARS, AND THE JOURNEY TO BRUNSWICK (SQUARE)
"Tune in to hear about the journey Nick has taken in the development, construction, and launch of the small production marvel of British engineering that is the Fears Brunswick."
A NIGHT OF GREAT FEARS
"Beautiful on the wrist, it (the Brunswick) has vintage qualities, echoing an archival 1924 Fears watch, as well as plenty of modern qualities."
SHIPSHAPE AND BRISTOL FASHION: FEARS IS BACK
"It’s fallen to the fourth generation – Edwin’s great-great-great-grand-son Nicholas Bowman-Scargill to bring the family firm out of dormancy. And how."
UP CLOSE WITH THE FEARS BRUNSWICK
"An exceptionally competent design, perfectly proportioned and comfortable to wear on a daily basis."
HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS YEAR’S SALON QP
"This vintage-styled watch features a beautiful enamel dial sitting inside a 38mm cushion case and is powered by the hand-wound ETA 7001 movement."
ANGUS DAVIES GETS HANDS-ON WITH THE FEARS BRUNSWICK
"The Brunswick superbly marries vintage and contemporary design elements, resulting in a cohesive mien which I find most becoming."
FEARS BRUNSWICK: THEIR FIRST MECHANICAL WATCH
"The case shape is refreshingly different to the modern rather clone-like watch shape and this, for me, makes it a desirable and attractive timepiece. In the flesh, the watch is even more attractive than it appears in photos."
FEARS WATCHES LAUNCHES NEW COLLECTION
"So if you have a business call, a loved one in another country or you’re travelling abroad you can now immediately see the time in the country of your choice. It’s easy to set, using the crown on two different settings for each of the time zones. No over complicated settings."
REVIVING FEARS FOR A NEW GENERATION OF WATCH FANS
"The Quartz Redcliff Date combines the old and the new.... The name Redcliff refers to the street where the company was originally located."
THE GRANDSON OF ALL FEARS
"Entirely designed by him (Nicholas Bowman-Scargill), finely made by a Swiss manufacturer, powered by a Ronda 515 movement and yours for a very reasonable £650 (roughly what an original Fears would have gone for in today's money)."
THE ENTREPRENEURS: EUREKA #22: NICHOLAS BOWMAN-SCARGILL
"We meet Fear's great-great-great-grandson, who's on a mission to revive the family firm."
THE MOST COVETED WATCHES OF 2016
"The Fears Redcliff Date is their first release since the rebirth."
SON OF ALL FEARS
"The Redcliff has nostalgic elements to the design, all of which draw from historical Fears watches"
FEARS WATCH COMPANY
"Fears watches have been designed in Britain before being manufactured in Switzerland, meaning they still carry the
'Swiss Made' label as they had for over a century before."
FEARS WATCHES: A NEW CHAPTER
"The Redcliff, named after the street in Bristol where Fears was established in 1846, is simply an elegant and beautiful timepiece."
KEEPING THE FEARS NAME IN THE FAMILY
"A new line of urbane tickers that display a sharp mix of modern cool and heritage styling."
"The original backbone of Fears continuity running through the watch design... The watch, being simple, uncluttered and elegant certainly carries a wide appeal."
FEARS WATCHES: A FAMILY BRAND REBORN
"The quality of manufacture is very high, with a well engineered case and sapphire crystal setting this watch apart from lower-priced quartz watches made to lower standards."
