The watch has a 17-jewel Swiss hand-winding movement, an ETA 1120, which is working nicely. The watch measures 31mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs. The case is stainless steel and it is in good condition, just surface marking but nothing serious.
The lens is in good condition.
The dial is signed Garrard. It is in its original finish which has some darkening and marking but still easy to read the time. Original hands (some of the infill has come out of the minute hand).
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.
A new leather strap has been fitted.
The watch will be sent in a new presentation box.
