A British Tale
Understated elegance from one of Britain's oldest watch companies
Among Fears most iconic pieces is the Archival 1930. This timepiece sports a rectangular face and is inspired by a historical Fears model originally released in the 1930s. Powered by original and unused Swiss movements manufactured in the 1960s, the collection is limited to 175 pieces.
Founded over 175 years ago, Fears epitomises what it is to be a multi-generational family business. One of the oldest watch companies in Britain, Fears’ distinguished history dates back to 1846, when Edwin Fear opened a workshop in Bristol in the South West of England. In 2016, Nicholas Bowman-Scargill, the great-great-great-grandson of Edwin Fear, re-launched Fears after its doors closed in 1976. Today, the historical brand boasts several elegant models powered by high-quality Swiss movements.
