Sarek Ladies - Midnight Blue
Sarek Ladies – Midnight Blue - Handmade elegance
This Sarek model has what we believe is the most stylish and elegant Damascus steel dial ever made - Midnight Blue. The dial colors depend on lighting and the matte dial surfaces seamlessly change from satin black to anthracite while the polished surfaces vary between deep blue and piano black. Patrik Sjögren developed the Ice Blue tempering of Johan Gustafsson's hand-forged Damascus steel for the Nordic Seasons collection in 2012. The goal was then to achieve a nuance that resembled thick ice and was achieved by applying a higher temperature than whats normal in a steel tempering process. The Ice Blue tempering has then been continuously improved on and reoccurring in other models of the GoS collection.
During autumn of 2017, Patrik developed a new finishing method with the goal to introduce a dark and more elegant dial. The separate nuances of black and blue in the Damascus steel pattern are a result of combining a contrast finishing with tempering in multiple steps. The colors of tempered steel are created when light is reflected on the surface. Different nuances are experienced when light source or reflection angle changes.
The ladies model shares some of the Viking inspired details that were introduced with the men's Sarek while adding new details such as the strap screws. The elliptic grooves on the case ring which GoS premiered on the men´s Sarek have been made more elegant and the whole case is high gloss polished. Another striking difference us the index markers of Sarek Ladies, which opened to show the colored steel below. The slightly sloped case interior provides more light to the indexes and provides a surface on which the colored dial is reflected.
The patterns and tempered natural coloring of the Sarek damascus steel dials are inspired by the landscape of a valley in Sarek national park in Swedish Lapland. Sarek National Park is regarded as a Swedish national treasure and is 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.
The hands of the Sarek Ladies are high gloss polished in a Dauphine finish with a center ridge to emphasize our inspiration from Viking arrow and spear heads. Sarek is powered by a Soprod A10 movement, which is equipped with a custom GoS triskele rotor, finished in satinized dark grey with am additional rhodinized counter weight. The Sarek Ladies is available with black Sarek Moose leather strap or optional pastel colored straps in high-quality leather, all fitted with a stainless steel folding clasp. Shapes from Viking sword handles were the main source of inspiration when we designed the new GoS crown. The result is a unique crown that is highly ergonomic.
