In March 2018, Garrick will unveil a totally new timepiece, the S1. This fascinating watch is built by master watchmaker, Craig Baird, and finished entirely by hand. This is Garrick’s most complicated timepiece to date, featuring a skeletonised dial and incorporating a power reserve indicator. Only ten S1 timepieces will be made, conferring a high degree of exclusivity.
The new Garrick S1 is the latest timepiece to leave the confines of our British workshop. The watch is built entirely in-house by Master Watchmaker, Craig Baird and each component stands testament to Baird’s unwavering pursuit of excellence.
The dial freely discloses a plethora of gears. Each gear is cut, finished and assembled by hand. Prospective purchasers are able to choose from a selection of different hand styles. Both the hands and screws are thermally blued, consistent with fine watchmaking practice. A small seconds display and power reserve indicator occupy the upper portion of the dial.
Housed within the 42mm case, the UT-G01 calibre incorporates various enhancements for the delectation of purists. Gold chatons abound, nestling adjacent brushed, hand-frosted and grained surfaces. The Trinity free-sprung balance mitigates positional errors and olive jewels reduce friction. Uniquely, the balance is made of Sircumet, a material which is endowed with anti-magnetic properties.
The Garrick S1 sets aside mass production, showcasing British craftsmanship at its finest.
