Born out of a desire to create fine timepieces with a distinctly British character, British watch brand Garrick, produce watches infused with high-quality finishing and delightful details designed to appeal to the cognoscenti. These are timepieces for purists, featuring no-compromise construction and created with a palpable sense of honesty.
Founded by David Brailsford and Simon Michlmayr, Garrick creates fine British timepieces in its own dedicated facility in Norfolk. The brand renounces mass production techniques, preferring to make limited volumes of watches encompassing a high quotient of hand-craftsmanship. Indeed, Garrick only produce a maximum of 50 watches per annum.
From the outset, the company endeavoured to make most of its components internally and over the years it has succeeded in making an ever-increasing number of parts in-house. For example, dials, hands and a multitude of movement parts are all made at the firm’s own workshop in Norfolk.
In 2016, the company released the ‘Portsmouth’, a watch endowed with an exclusive movement, the Calibre UT-G01. This high-end calibre was produced in collaboration with Andreas Strehler.
