A Reinterpretation Of The Portsmouth Timepiece

Mar 14, 2017

The Portsmouth timepiece by Garrick watches

The Portsmouth – embrace a voyage of discovery with Garrick

After the incredible success of the maritime-themed Portsmouth, Garrick has once again penned a breathtaking design for the delectation of horophiles.

Originally a bespoke commission, Garrick have decided to produce a limited number of timepieces featuring two dial options, anthracite or silver.

Traditional engine turning is employed on both dial variants while a smaller cartouche displays the Garrick nomen.

Numerous processes have been employed to achieve a sumptuous finish like no other. However, upholding Garrick’s reputation for handcrafted bespoke timepieces, clients can choose an alternative dial design should they wish.

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

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

The hand-wound movement is frosted and polished by hand, typical of high-end watchmaking, and features the brand’s own Trinity balance. The rim of the balance wheel on this timepiece is made of a patented metal alloy called Sircumet and is used exclusively on this wristwatch.

Only 10 pieces of each dial variant will be available.

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

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
