Patrik Sjögren is a watchmaker that has quickly propelled himself into the world of unique Haute Horology. Patrik trained at Swedish Watchmaking school, earning top honors. The Swedish watchmaking school is the only Scandanavian watchmaking school that is qualified for training and certification of watchmakers, on the level of the prestigious WOSTEP watchmaking school in Switzerland.

His dedication and passion for the craft have not gone unnoticed as he was invited to have Masterclasses in finishing during Dubai Watch Week 2019. Patrik also received the honor of being invited to be a member of the GPHG Academy. The GPHG Academy nominate watches to participate in the yearly competition arranged by Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève.

Patrik has a highly developed ability to solve technical problems and his creativity and eye for details show in every GoS watch.

Patrik follows the Swedish watchmaking tradition where watchmakers are not confined to work on the movement but all aspects of a watch: "The exterior is just as important to me as the interior of the watch."
