This little video popped up on twitter this weekend. Michael Michlmayr talks about the building of Garrick’s exclusive S1.
After their first successful Kickstarter launch of the H1 diver’s watch the Southampton based brand is coming back with a second watch.
The difference this time is the new watch will use a Swiss automatic movment, an STP 1-11 from the Fossil Group. It also features a 316L stainless steel case in a choice of brushed or matte black PVD finish, a ceramic bezel, and grade-A Swiss Super-Luminova to aid legibility.
As well as the choice of case finishes the watch is available with a variety of different coloured Super-Luminova.
The watch is initially being offered for £269, with website accepting orders from January 30th.
I received an e-mail from Christopher Ward today telling me about their sale. I usually give the sale a browse to what bargains are on offer. Of the latest offers one really caught my eye, the C9 Pulsometer COSC.
This great looking chronometer is calibrated for use in measuring a person’s heart rate.
The tachymeter-style pulsometer scale of the dial is calibrated for 30 heart beats and both its red colour and the beautiful contrast of the optic-white dial make for easy reading.
Blued hands, a caduceus design on the second hand counter-balance and the finesse of the C9 case . This limited edition of only 250 pieces is on sale for £525. If it wasn’t for it being just after Christmas and just before the tax deadline I would be surly tempted to press the button on one of these.
