The Fears Archival 1930

Created to coincide with the 175th Anniversary of the founding of Fears, the Archival 1930 Small Seconds is a proportional recreation of an art deco watch Fears made in 1930. True to the original, each watch features an original vintage movement. With its elegant form it is a perfect luxury rectangular watch for men or women… More here.

A beautiful watch with a classic design. My only concern is the movement which while a lovely idea may struggle as a practical solution in 2021.

With these movements being first machined nearly 90 years ago they do not include modern shock absorbing components. This means the watch can be worn and enjoyed everyday but care must be taken to avoid drops or large bangs as this could upset the timekeeping.

We expect timekeeping to be within +/-30 seconds a day, in-keeping with the original specification of the movement.
