HISTORY OF FEARS
As one of the oldest family-run watch companies in Britain, we are very proud of our distinguished history. As the 6th generation of the Fear watchmaking family, our Managing Director brings the heritage of the company forward into the modern era.
In 1846, a young watchmaker named Edwin Fear establishes a workshop and showroom at Nos. 33-35 Redcliff Street in Bristol. The company was revived in 2016 by Nicholas Bowman-Skargill, the great-great-grandson of Edwin Fear at SalonQP and has specialized in creating luxury hand crafted watches, drawing inspiration from the historical releases, but using modern materials.
