Sarek – a Swedish national treasure on your wrist Watch / Info inquiry
Sarek premiered as a prototype during Baselworld 2016 and has the largest damascus steel dial we've made up to date and other details are manufactured in more traditional materials such as an all stainless steel case. This allows us to add design details that would otherwise be camouflaged by the damascus steel patterns. The case features subtle viking design hints inspired by viking bracelets and lug chamfers with curves also found in the GoS hands. Sarek is the first GoS model to be fitted with the new GoS crown which shaped much like the form of the hilt of a viking sword.
The pattern and natural coloring of the Sarek dial is inspired by the landscape of a valley in Sarek national park in Swedish Lapland. Sarek National Park is regarded to be a national treasure of Sweden and often referred to as Europe's last true wilderness area. It hosts the largest Moose (Älg) in Europe and is also home to 100 glaciers and six of Sweden’s 13 highest peaks. The park is 2000 square kilometers of majestic and untouched wilderness and its remoteness is matched only by the breathtaking beauty of its peaks, valleys and fast-running mountain rivers.
Sarek straps are made from selected Moose leather that has received a special treatment to have shrunken grain. The new GoS hands have a high gloss polished in a Dauphine finish with a center ridge, which will make them look more like the arrow and spear heads we've used as inspiration initially. The decoration and design of both chapter ring and case ring are inspired by authentic viking bracelets and broaches. Sarek is powered by a Soprod A10 movement, which is equipped with a custom rotor in a GoS triskele design finished in satinized black with polished bevels.
Like all GoS watches, every Sarek dial has a unique pattern and coloring but Sarek watches will share the same character.
