Fears Watch Company

Postby koimaster » February 5th 2018, 12:06pm

The Fears Watch Company Limited is one of Britain's oldest family-run watch companies.



Our history begins in 1846, during Queen Victoria's first decade on the throne, when a young watchmaker named Edwin Fear opened a watchmaking workshop and showroom on Redcliff Street, Bristol.



The business ran until the 1960s when it was closed and after 50 years (and two generations) laying dormant it was re-established by Edwin Fear's great-great-great-grandson in 2016.

The Brunswick is OK but the others look like ass with the date in the oxygen tank.

WTF is happening to Edwin Fear's beard? Is it a wildly hairy chest peeping over his collar? Did he not use a mirror when shaving?
Tonsorial facial disaster.

The Redcliffs are ghey. The Brunswick is nice, very 1930s, but 2300 quid for a mediocre watch from a microbrand is beyond audacious, and into the "howling mad" territory.

It's a rather disturbing trend - the rights to the names of famous British watch and clock manufacturers are being bought by Kickstarter micros and non-Kickstarter micros alike, and so we've got companies bearing the names of James McCabe and Thomas Earnshaw making shitty quartz wonders of Cathay. Yikes.

That mug is very meme-worthy.

Nothing much there to recommend any of the Fears catalogue :???:
