Normally, micro brands don't attract me too decidedly, (and I am not sure this is even a micro) but the Fears Watch Co. has a story I find really compelling. Now granted, marketing hyperbole could be at play here, but Edwin Fears founded Fears Watchmakers in 1824 in the United Kingdom, and shuddered due to the advent of Quartz watches in the 1960's. That Nicholas Bowman-Scargill, the great great great grandson of the founder decided to start the company back up after a two generation sabbatical, and with a nice looking watch too boot, all this tied together grabs me more than most. These are sold in batch runs, so looking with focus and diligence is advised.
The Brunswick is a very attractive piece, ETA 7001 and made in its entirety in the UK. First Christopher Ward, and now Fears..... A renaissance in British Horlogerie?
