Introduced in 2019, the Redcliff “Streamline” is inspired by a popular watch from the 1946 Fears centenary range called the “Streamline”. This timepiece features a galvanised dial similar to its name sake with an antique silver colour called ‘Forties Silver’.

The surface of the German made dial is vertically grained with gilt printed numerals and black surrounds, just like the original.

Time is displayed using black ‘Fears’ shaped hands filled with Super-LumiNova for easy reading. The central seconds hand is painted in a special patina red, reminiscent of Fears watches with central seconds hands from the 1940s& 50s, which all featured red seconds hand.

On the tip of the crown is engraved the Fears “Pipette” logo, taken from the design of the hour markers on the first Redcliff Date that re-launched Fears in 2016.
