Garrards was founded in 1735 by George Wickes. They designed, manufactured and retailed luxury jewellery, silver and watches. The company is still trading today and as well has having their headquarters in Mayfair, London, they also have a presence in Harrods, London, Geneva, Lebanon, Qatar, Dubai, Moscow and Hong Kong. Garrard was the Crown Jeweller of the United Kingdom, charged with the upkeep of the British Crown Jewels from 1843 to 2007. This particular watch has a Swiss 17-jewel Unitas movement which is working nicely. The watch is a good wearable size at 34mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs. The case is 9 carat gold and there are hallmarks inside the case back for London 1974. The case is in lovely condition and the back has a 1976 long service inscription from Baggeridge Brick Co Ltd, the UK’s fourth largest manufacturer of bricks. The lens is in lovely condition, as is the dial which is in its original finish with original hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and outer minute markers. A new leather strap has been fitted. The watch comes in a new presentation box. All of our watches are checked over before listing, and are also checked for accuracy which is usually within around +/- two to three minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch.
