Small-batch, proudly Britain-built

Celebrating Great Britain's Jubilee year in 2022, this special Fears Brunswick 'Jubilee Edition' is only being produced and retailed during 2022. Built around the brand's own 38mm Brunswick case, this graceful and complex silhouette is an exacting object to create. It takes its inspiration from a gentleman’s cushion case watch in the Fears archives, first made in 1924, and a dial colour used in the 1940s and 50s. The Brunswick’s elegant 38mm cushion-shaped case has no flat surfaces, with even the solid caseback having a gentle sweep. Each individually-numbered case’s glancing curves are machined from 316L stainless steel in Germany, to a level usually reserved for precious metals. The depth of the polish belies the sophistication of the machinery and the skill of the operator.

The Brunswick is powered by a beautifully finished, Swiss made, manual winding ETA 7001 movement, which can be wound each day using a traditional ‘onion’-shaped winding crown. Made in Switzerland, the crown’s grooves catch the light, adding a touch of radiance to the edge of the case. 

As the brand's "Jubilee Edition," this Brunswick features a Royal Purple dial, which perfectly replicates this historic color closely associated with Great Britain's royalty. Expertly made in Germany, this regal tone is created using a special kind of lacquer with different drops of pigment added to achieve the exact desired tone. It is finished with a light-catching sunburst pattern radiating from the dial's center. This effect is complemented by the concentric circle finishing on the sunken sub-seconds at 6 o’clock.

This Brunswick watch is paired with a handmade Bristol Leather strap which has been vegetable tanned in Britain’s oldest vegetable tannery, Bristol’s Thomas Ware & Sons. Its stainless steel pin buckle is subtly engraved with the Fears signature ‘Pipette’ logo.
