Inspired by maritime instruments.

After the incredible success of the maritime-themed Norfolk, Garrick has once again partnered with esteemed freelance designer, Michael Horlbeck, to pen another breathtaking design for the delectation of horophiles.

The Portsmouth is inspired by old maritime instruments which proudly displayed the maker’s name on a large nameplate screwed to the dial.

The silver, blue or grey guilloche dials are engine turned in England and thereafter galvanised and lacquered. Numerous processes have been employed to achieve a sumptuous finish like no other. However, upholding its reputation for handcrafted bespoke timepieces, clients can choose an alternative dial design, incorporating a different engine-turned pattern should they wish.

Garrick’s visually striking bevelled and thermally blued Maritime hands, first seen on the Norfolk, are retained. These unique hands are made in-house by our own time-served artisans. Meanwhile, a gorgeous mirror polished, hand-chamfered balance bridge resides at the base of the dial.

At first glance, the new 42mm 940l stainless steel case may look similar to its forebears, but it is actually more refined, sporting a highly polished finish and delivering a superb tactile feel. Moreover, the timepiece appears much smaller when worn and is said to resemble a 40mm case.

 

The handmade Portsmouth watch by Garrick

 

At the heart of the Portsmouth is a new hand-wound exclusive Garrick movement.

This exclusive movement has been designed by eminent watchmaker, Andreas Strehler and his company Uhr Teil AG. The movement is handcrafted in Garrick’s own workshop in Norfolk. The design of the movement, with its prominent balance bridge, is intended to look stereotypically British.

The hand-wound calibre UT-G01 is frosted and polished by hand, typical of high-end watchmaking, and features the brands own Trinity balance. The rim of the balance wheel on this timepiece is made of a patented anti-magnetic metal alloy called Sircumet and is employed for the first time within a wristwatch. Furthermore, the movement is assembled, finished and regulated in the brand’s own British workshop.

Garrick does not craft ordinary watches, its timepieces are special and intended for those individuals of discerning taste.

The Portsmouth is handmade in limited numbers and is covered by a 5-year warranty.

Price £14,995 ex vat (outside the EU) and £17,995 inc vat (inside the EU)

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.
