As promised I contacted Garrick to see if they could give me more information about their new Regualtor model.
They are using a base Unitas but adding their own gear train, free-sprung balance and winding barrel. In reality is there not much left of the original movement.
They have been working on this for some time and mainly to show what they can do with standard movements.It’s to showcase their watchmaking.
They are only releasing a limited number because it takes some time to build. Remember they are not mass producing watches and everything is assembled and finished by hand or in-house including the hands, balance and gears.
Garrick is extremely busy right now and they have to have plans to produce realistic numbers. They also think it’s a truly unique watch and want customers to have something truly limited.
