Garrick UT-G01 calibre

Garrick has now entered a new era in watchmaking with the introduction of a new and exclusive hand-wound movement.

The UT-G01 calibre was designed in partnership with eminent watchmaker, Andreas Strehler and his company Uhr Teil AG and parts are made in both the UK and Switzerland.

Garrick English in-house watch movement

The design of the movement, with its prominent balance bridge, is intended to look stereotypically British and is assembled, finished and regulated in Garrick’s own British workshop.

The hand-wound movement is frosted and polished by hand, typical of high-end watchmaking, and features Garrick’s own Trinity balance. The rim of the balance wheel is made of a patented metal alloy called Sircumet which is employed for the first time within a wristwatch.

 

Sircumet is a copper-based alloy exhibiting the following properties:

 

1. Antimagnetic
2. free of toxic materials (no Pb, Be, Ni)
3. good hardness without needing heat treatment
4. no distortion due to heat treatment
5. it stays bright even without a galvanic treatment
6. sea water resistant
Compared to copper beryllium alloys like Glucydur ™ the advantages are: 2, 4, 5, 6
The thermal dilation is similar to copper beryllium.
Compared to Invar the advantage are: 1, 2, 4
Compared to brass: 2, 3, 5, 6
Similar alloys are used for nautical applications  (1, 5, 6)

Assembly and finishing of the movement take place over 3 days by master watchmaker Craig Baird, a 30 year veteran of the industry.

The UT-G01/2 calibre is used exclusively in the new Portsmouth and S1 timepiece.

Thanks to the new Calibre UT-G01, the Portsmouth is set to become the first watch that defines the company as a watchmaker first and foremost

The Garrick Portsmouth is an expensive watch but, based on its array of attributes, justifiably so. Indeed, I would even suggest the watch is actually underpriced and would warrant another £4000 on the asking price and still prove competitive

The important thing for British watchmaking is that Garrick Watch Co. is very much part of the conversation.
