The brand’s most recent model fulfills every one of these requirements to say the very least. Presenting the Garrick S2 Central Seconds.
The S2 Central Seconds is the fifth watch from Garrick and the first to utilize a central range seconds show. What will without a doubt be the principle talking point, notwithstanding, is the dazzling motor turned dial accessible in a decision of rhodium or gold plate wraps up. As per Garrick, it takes around five days to construct and complete every individual dial. The guilloché example can be redone to the new proprietor’s determinations, considering a genuine feeling of personalisation.
