Fears Watch Company: The Brunswick ‘Jubilee Edition’ & the Brunswick Champagne

The Fears Watch Company has recently expanded its Brunswick 38mm family by launching two new models: the Brunswick ‘Jubilee Edition’ and the Brunswick Champagne.

The first piece has been created to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee as a numbered edition, only produced in 2022, though not limited. The second model joins the permanent collection alongside the Brunswick White and Brunswick Salmon.

The Brunswick ’Jubilee Edition’ features an eye-catching Royal Purple dial with a sunburst finish, radiating from the centre. This finish ensures the rich purple tones of the special lacquer transform from an almost black to a light regal tone with a turn of the wrist. The sunburst finish of the main dial stands in contrast to the concentric machined guilloche finish of the sunken sub-seconds dial at 6 o’clock.

Rhodium plating is used on the ‘Fears’ skeletonised hour and minute hands, as well as the diamond-polished hour marker appliques which are realised in the Fears custom ‘Edwin’ typeface.

Included with the Brunswick ‘Jubilee Edition’ are two straps: a Bristol leather strap in Royal Purple with contrasting platinum-coloured stitching, and a Barenia leather strap in muted Pewter Grey.

Though not a limited edition, this watch will only be made and sold during the Jubilee Year of 2022, with each watch carrying a unique edition number engraved on the closed case back.

Launching alongside the Brunswick ‘Jubilee Edition’ is the Brunswick Champagne, a new model that enters the permanent Brunswick 38mm collection. This new watch features a rich champagne coloured dial, created using layers of 18ct Yellow Gold on a surface which has undergone frosting using glass beads.

This type of frosted finish has a gentle sparkle to it which complements the true gold colour. The applied ‘Edwin’ numerals are diamond polished before receiving a coating of black gold, giving them a dark, warm contrast to the bright gold tones of the dial.

The Brunswick Champagne is paired with a handmade Pewter Grey strap crafted from premium Barenia leather which lends a contemporary feel to the watch.

The Fears Brunswick ‘Jubilee Edition’ and Brunswick Champagne are now available to order, retailing for £3,450 inc. VAT (£2,875 ex. VAT) and £3,350 inc. VAT (£2,791.67 ex. VAT) respectively.
