Sarek - Midnight Blue
Sarek – Midnight Blue
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 theNordic 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.
Sarek Midnight 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.
