Fears Brunswick 40 Fears Blue Dial
Fears Brunswick 40 Fears Blue Dial
The Sportier Fears Watch
Hand build in Britain. Graceful and complex, the curvaceous Brunswick 40 takes its inspiration from a gentleman’s cushion case watch in the Fears archives, first made in 1924. This sportier iteration of the Brunswick is the perfect all-round watch, taking you from Beach to Boardroom with ease.
The Brunswick 40’s elegant yet sporty 40mm cushion-shaped case has no flat surfaces. The 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 along with the hand grained finish applied to the top of the case’s corners.
Built with uprated proportions, the Brunswick 40 is 100m water resistant, allowing it to be submerged in water when the crown is pushed all the way in.
Complementing the case is 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.
The Brunswick 40 Blue features a Fears Blue dial with a unique deep blue using a special galvanic coating. Expertly made in Germany, the surface of the dial is on two levels, each with its own distinct finish:
Centre lower section – Finished with micro-guilloche. Concentric rings are cut into the dial’s surface using a CNC machine. These delicate ‘rills’ are so fine, like a records groove, that they appear invisible to the naked eye yet catch the light giving a beautiful subtle sunburst finish.
Outer raised section – Hand-brushed in a vertical direction. This subtle brushing is unique to each watch and catches the light beautifully, providing a perfect base for the sparkling numerals.
The ‘Edwin’ numerals are milled from a block of brass before being diamond polished and then coated in rhodium, giving them a bright, silver/white appearance. These numerals are realised in our custom ‘Edwin’ typeface, specially designed for Fears by our horological typographer and inspired by the many different typefaces the company has used throughout its history.
