Inspired by maritime instruments.

Wishing to celebrate Great Britain’s rich maritime history, the Norfolk timepiece exhibits a traditional aesthetic, imbued with flourishes of individualistic detail. The brainchild of esteemed freelance designer, Michael Holbeck, it harnesses many exquisite elements intended to appeal to purists.

The large nameplate is a key feature of the Norfolk and is inspired by old instruments which proudly displayed the makers name on a steel or brass plate.

The enamel dial is paired with Garrick’s unique ‘Maritime hands’. The hour and minute hands, with their anchor-like profiles, are produced in-house and thermally blued, in keeping with fine watchmaking tradition.

Housed within a 42mm case (manufactured locally and finished in-house), the hand-wound Unitas 6497 movement is finished to Garrick’s exacting standards.

Please note: Our dials are enamelled by hand using traditional methods and may contain tiny imperfections only visible through a loupe.

Two versions are available to purchase:

Norfolk featuring a flat engraved solid case-back.

Norfolk featuring an exhibition case-back and engraved movement.

Price £2,100 ex vat (outside the EU) and £2,520 inc vat (inside the EU) with solid case-back.

Price £2,495 ex vat (outside the EU) and £2,995 in vat (inside the EU) with exhibition case-back and engraved movement

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

Escapement

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

Monochrome

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