Garrick, the specialist English watchmaker, has announced a new, limited-edition, hand-made skeleton timepiece called the S1.
Only ten S1 watches will ever be made, and there’s only one currently in existence. When you consider that, and the stunning looks of the watch itself, you can be sure it’ll be a highly coveted item.
In fact, it takes four months to make each individual watch by hand, in Garrick’s UK workshop.
As Garrick says, “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.”
Did you note the customisable nature of the watch? Yes, here at Custom Watches we don’t miss a trick! You can choose from different hand styles! 🙂
The only drawback to this magnificent piece of British engineering is the price… just £27,995, inc VAT.
But if your pocketbook can stretch to that, Garrick also offers a fully bespoke service where “clients can express their own character, specifying design details which are important to them”.
