Sarek – Ice Blue

Patrik Sjögren developed the GoS Ice Blue tempering of Johan Gustafsson's hand-forged Damascus steel for the Nordic Seasons collection in 2012. The idea was to use traditional heat tempering but to carefully increase the temperature above what results in the dark blue, which is common in watchmaking, to instead achieve brighter blue nuances.
Patrik creates separate blue nuances for the two different steel types in the Damascus steel pattern by tempering the dial in multiple steps. The colors of tempered steel are created when light is reflected on the surface and slightly different nuances can be experienced based on the angle of reflection and the light source. These dynamics combined with the highly detailed and reflective surface results in a dial that is both elegant and eye-catching. GoS introduced the Nordic Seasons Winter during Baselworld 2012 and the Ice Blue tempering was featured again in the first GoS dress watch Bifrost two years after. Patrik and Johan have now further refined both the steel patterns and dial finishing and are proud to add Sarek Ice Blue to the GoS collection.

Sarek Ice Blue is delivered with a Moose leather strap and GoS offers four different choices of which the lighter Khaki or the glossy black are expected to be the most popular alternatives with this dial.

The Sarek is powered by a Soprod A10 movement that has been customized with a GoS triskele rotor. The triskele design is the GoS version of the famous Viking symbol with three interlocked horns and has been present on GoS watches since GoS was founded 10 years ago. The dark rotor is finished with a circular satinization and is equipped with an additional counter weight made from German Silver. The counter weight is hand-finished with polished bevels and circular satinization on the top for maximum contrasts.
