It wasn’t long ago we reviewed Garrick’s beautifully classic, nautically-themed Portsmouth watch. It was nice, subtle and refined. The S1 is something else. The most elaborate watch to date from the fine British watchmakers, the open dial puts all the inner workings on full display.
Thanks to the case shape, there’s also an odd feeling of depth while looking at it and yes, it’s very, very gold. Well, the colour at least, not the precious metal. The material in question is actual copper alloy Sircumet. It has a lot of great properties all its own but more than anything it looks fantastic.
Like the Portsmouth the finishing is next-level superb, far above what you can expect from most British watchmakers (and Swiss for that matter); unlike the Portsmouth though, this is an overt showstopper.
