Today, UK-based Garrick announced a new skeleton dial timepiece that follows up the company’s S1 and S2 models.
Like past models, the new Garrick S3 comes in a 42 mm diameter case. The watch is available in 904L stainless steel or gold, measures 10 mm thick, and has a 22 mm interlug width.
Uniquely, the gear train, main plate, and bridges are mostly visible on the dial side of the watch, with the heat blue steel chapter ring — as well as blued power reserve and small seconds subdials — placed directly on top. Matching blued Marine-style hands display the hours and minutes.
Contrasting the blued elements, the main plate, which acts as the dial, comes in either a gold or rhodium-plated finish. Additionally, the dial has been hand frosted, while the bridges feature shiny black polished surfaces. In addition, there are screwed hand-polished chatons for 8 of the 19 jewels, located on the front and back of the movement.
The caliber UT-G04 is hand-wound, has a 45-hour power reserve, and is exclusive to Garrick. Garrick says the balance wheel is an “in-house free-sprung balance – tested and regulated to ensure a daily variance of +3 seconds.”
Water-resistance is 100 meters and there are a variety of straps to choose from. The retail price starts at approximately $29,700 in stainless steel.
