Founded by David Brailsford, British-based watch brand, Garrick, manufacture fine watches in their own dedicated facility in Norfolk. Garrick craft fine timepieces intended to appeal to horological aficionados and watchmakers alike.
Great Britain has an illustrious horological history and is famous for many innovations in this field, several of which continue to be used today. Luminaries of horology include Harrison, Mudge and, more recently, the late George Daniels. Garrick is keen to be part of this great tradition, creating truly unique British timepieces with a touch of modern flair.
The company’s modern facility allows it to craft much of its timepieces in-house. However, when components have to be sourced externally, the company draws on the expertise of British artisans and craftsmen whenever possible, despite these parts sometimes costing more than items from overseas.
Nevertheless, frankness has always been an intrinsic part of the Garrick paradigm and the provenance of its watches is something the company takes very seriously. Garrick uses existing vintage Swiss calibres as the basis for its movements on it’s early models. The main plate, gear train, spring barrel, balance spring and mainspring all come from a Swiss base movement. The talented craftsmen at the Garrick atelier modify and expertly finish these components. In some instances, parts are produced in-house or sourced locally, enhancing the specification and imbuing the timepieces with a decidedly British character.
Garrick has now entered a new era in watchmaking with the introduction of their new and exclusive hand-wound movement designed by legendary movement specialist Andreas Strehler. The movement parts are manufactured both in the UK and Switzerland. Thereafter, movement finishing, assembly and regulation take place within Garrick’s own Norfolk workshop.
The team of watchmakers at Garrick, craft fine timepieces that watchmakers and horological aficionados can truly appreciate. Garrick movements feature the brand’s own open bridges, expertly finished by time-served watchmakers with hand bevelled edges and thermally blued screws.
Garrick also offers a fully bespoke service where clients can express their own character, specifying design details which are important to them.
Despite being a haven of traditional watchmaking expertise, the company continues to explore new designs, complications and innovations. Garrick’s remarkable success has seen the company expand and it plans to announce further new models in the coming months. Moreover, the development of Garrick’s own in-house movement has taken the brand to a higher level of excellence and has secured Garrick’s future.
The desire to produce fine watches which celebrate British watchmaking is something close to the heart of David Brailsford. It is born out of an innate need to patriotically champion home-grown talent and create a new chapter in British watchmaking history. This isn’t marketing hyperbole, but the understandable patriotic motivation of a team who wish to write their own chapter in Britain’s horological annals.
Garrick offers a bespoke service where prices range from £2300 to £50,000. Whatever your budget, we will endeavour to build your dream watch.
Garrick is part of the JIC Group Est 1998
