The GoS Sarek Ladies Glacier watch is styled to recall the icy landscape of Sweden’s Sarek National Park. The piece brings to the collection a novel dial, hand-crafted from delicate mother-of-pearl. With each subtle wrist movement, the delicate nuances of the natural material promise to play with the light creating an ethereal aesthetic. Boasting meticulous craftsmanship and matchless exclusivity, this mechanical ladies wristwatch is a captivating proposition.
The creative driving force behind Gustafsson and Sjögren, are Master Bladesmith, Johan Gustafsson and Master Watchmaker, Patrik Sjögren. Combining their names, and their individual disciplines, the pair create a portfolio of imaginative, meticulously hand-crafted watches under the title, GoS. Each piece exhibits their affinity with the history of their Scandinavian homeland, and its intimate connection with nature.
The Gos Sarek Ladies Glacier watch carries a hand-crafted mother-of-pearl dial which evokes a gentle shade of blue. With minimal features, the uncluttered façade enables the delicacy of this incredibly beautiful material to shine with limitless luminosity.
Taking style cues from the weaponry and adornments of the Vikings who once ruled supreme in Scandinavia, the tapering spear-shaped form of the hour and minute hands and the brooch-inspired index ring display the company’s association with their land’s history.
A high-polish finish on the hour, minutes and seconds hands complies with the sheen of the mother-of-pearl. And, complementing the paired-back dial architecture, numerals are replaced by semi-circular perforations and notches which serve as hour markers. Framing this splendid hand-crafted dial, the textured pattern of the hand-forged Damascus steel bezel adds a dramatic twist.
But, that is not where the drama ends. Super-LumiNova® applied to the underside of the dial shines through the translucent mother-of-pearl. This pioneering technique ensures a dial of matchless originality with the exquisite refinement of a gentle shade of powdery blue by day and hypnotic luminescence in poor light conditions.
The rounded 31.5mm stainless steel case is equipped with a flat sapphire crystal. The crown, which has a high-polished finish, is engraved with the GoS branding. And, accentuating the profile of the case, elliptical grooves on its sides add texture and interest.
On the rear side, a sapphire section in the caseback reveals the Soprod A10 automatic movement. Here one can admire the GoS Triskele rotor and the additional hand-finished German Silver counterweight engraved with the script,“Glacier”. Declaring the hand-crafted originality of the Damascus steel forging process and the natural beauty of the dials, each model is engraved with “Sarek 1/1” in addition to the serial number, denoting its exclusivity.
The GoS Sarek Ladies Glacier watch comes presented on a hand-crafted moose leather strap fitted with a stainless steel deployant clasp featuring the GoS logo.
