The new Fears x Christopher Ward Alliance 01 is a jumping hour watch powered by CW’s ingenious JJ01 movement
Christopher Ward’s iconic jumping hour movement has made its return in a limited edition watch produced with British watch brand Fears.
Limited to just 50 pieces, the timepiece is available only to Club members of the Alliance of British Watch and Clock Makers.
The new Fears x Christopher Ward Alliance 01 is a jumping hour watch powered by CW’s ingenious JJ01 calibre. Its bespoke case, developed by Fears, is 40.5mm wide and carries unique hallmarks engraved on the underside of the lugs.
Fears’ (4th) managing director Nicholas Bowman-Scargill, says: “The watch is dressy but not super-formal – and has the attention-to-detail Fears is famous for. What’s been particularly fascinating for me is how CW’s designers managed to interpret our Fears design language. It’s unmistakably a Fears watch, but it isn’t like any Fears you’ve seen.”
One of the critical features of the watch is its rarity. “We’ve made just 50 of these models,” says CW CEO Mike France. “And they’re only available to Club members of the Alliance on a first-come, first-served basis. Just one more reason why watch-lovers should join the Alliance.”
For Alliance CEO Alistair Audsley, the collaboration is proof of how the trade body can encourage cooperation between brands – especially as all profits will be donated to the Alliance.
“I can’t thank Mike and Nicholas enough for their generosity in donating the proceeds to the Alliance. It’s a huge boost in helping us do our job for the UK watch sector.”
The Fears x Christopher Ward Alliance 01 is available to Club members now.
