Garrick is pleased to unveil its most ambitious timepiece to date, the new S1. This fascinating timepiece is suffused with a plethora of no-compromise details, fulfilling the desires of the most discerning purists. The S1 is equipped with the UT-G02 calibre which features a Trinity free-sprung balance, olive jewels and gold chatons.

The new Garrick S1 is the latest timepiece to leave the confines of the brand’s British workshop. The watch is handcrafted in-house by Master Watchmaker, Craig Baird. 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 which are again, cut and finished by hand in the Garrick workshops. 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-G02 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.

It takes four months to make one S1 by hand, conferring a high degree of exclusivity. The Garrick S1 sets aside mass production, showcasing British craftsmanship at its finest.

The S1 is limited to only 10 pieces and priced at £23,329 ex VAT

Price £23,329.17 ex vat (outside the EU) and £27,995 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

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
