MrWatchMaster Opinion: Fears Hand Built In GREAT Britain

We are delighted to see that Fears Watches are to partner with the UK Government’s GREAT Britain campaign, highlighting the best the country has to offer the world. This is in recognition of Fears’ 174-year heritage and British credentials since the company re-launched in 2016.

The announcement comes as Fears concludes production of its Quartz powered watches. Since the launch of the mechanical Brunswick (below) in 2017, Fears has been moving towards an all mechanical watch line up.

Fears watches will be powered by mechanical movements and, like the Brunswick, be hand built in the UK. Fears builds its watches in the East Anglian city of Norwich using bespoke components made in Germany (cases & dials), Switzerland (movements & winding crowns), UK (hands and strap leather), Hong Kong (sapphire crystals) and Belgium (straps).

It’s an honour to have Fears’ extensive heritage recognised by the UK Government’s GREAT Britain campaign. The GREAT Britain campaign does outstanding work in highlighting and promoting British manufacturing and highlighting the many things that make Britain great today. Fears has a unique history in the British watch industry. Having traded for over 130 years from the middle of the 19th Century until 1976, Fears use to export to 95 countries around the world, something I hope we’ll achieve again.

Nicholas Bowman-Scargill, (4th) Managing Director of the Fears Watch Company
