The Precious Fears Watch
Hand built to order in Britain, with each watch taking four months to complete, and a maximum of four watches being made in a year, due to the extensive hand work required.
Graceful and complex, the curvaceous Brunswick Pt is a particularly exacting object to create. It takes its inspiration from a gentleman’s cushion case watch in the Fears archives, first made in 1924, which is then realised in the rarest and most noble of metals, Platinum.
The Brunswick Pt’s elegant 38mm cushion-shaped case is made from almost 100g of solid Platinum (950/1000 purity). Crafted in the traditional way, entirely from this noble silver-white metal, its creation is a process requiring great skill, and the graceful curves of each watch case take over 100 hours to shape and polish.
The case and the solid caseback each bear hallmarks from the London Assay Office, and, following a Fears tradition, these comprise the initials of the Managing Director when the watch was built, in this case: ‘NBS’ for our (4th) Managing Director, Nicholas Bowman-Scargill.
The Brunswick Pt is manually wound each day using a traditional ‘onion’-shaped winding crown, also made from solid Platinum, and into which is set a D-colour, flawless diamond, which on Fears watches signifies a case made entirely from precious metal.
Exclusive to the Brunswick Pt is a new dial colour, Anthracite Grey. Made in Germany, and involving over 58 separate production processes, the natural colour of a coating of real Anthracite combines with three surface finishes to result in a dial that changes in the light, giving a two-tone effect.
Each dial is hand finished and features a contemporary layout with alternating platinum plated numerals and D-colour, flawless diamonds. If preferred, the diamonds can be replaced with platinum plated dot indices.
An alternative colour for the dial is gorgeously multi-toned Fears Blue, as on the Brunswick Blue, except with platinum plated numerals and diamonds or platinum plated indices.
The Brunswick Pt’s hands follow the same distinctive Fears shape used on other models but are represented in solid rather than skeletonized form. Each hand is first water cut from a sheet of Platinum before being bevelled by hand.
Finishing takes a whole day for each individual hand, with a contrasting polished and frosted finish on either side of the bevel, increasing legibility. The cap that adorns the centre of the hands is turned from solid Platinum.
Each watch we make carries a unique serial number. Engraved between the 20mm lugs at 12 o’clock, this number helps us identify your watch and its history.
