Meet Gustafsson and Sjogren Damascus Vile Watch and Oden Knife Set

Sep 15, 2011
The Swedish horological company Gustafsson & Sjogren is about to deliver a new Damascus Vile watch and Oden Knife set. The creations borrowed their names from Nordic mythology, where Vile and Oden were gods and brothers.

The new Gustafsson & Sjogren watch is set in a stainless steel case - 42mm x 10mm. It features an all high-gloss polished surface and the brands logo. At 3 oclock the case sports an 8mm crown, done in fine-grained Damascus stainless steel. The top of the model is assembled with a flat sapphire crystal with glare-proofed treatment.

Housed in the case is a hand-forged damascus steel dial. It features an index ring, shaped by hand and done in polished grade 5 titanium. The display of the new Gustafsson & Sjogren Damascus Vile watch ensures hours and minutes, indicated by polished silver finished hands. Animating the functions is a Swiss made hand-wound ETA Unitas 6498-1 movement, refinished and improved by the Swiss company Soprod.

The new Gustafsson & Sjogren watch is worn on a hand-crafted strap, made of black reindeer leather. The strap boasts traditional Sami tin-thread embellishments.

The new Oden knife is entirely performed in Damascus steel. Its total size is 250 mm x 9.75 inches. The size of the Flower Damascus and explosion blade constitutes 150 mm x 4.49 inches. The knife also demonstrates Flower Damascus bolsters, Nordic fossilized coral handle and file-worked grade 5 titanium liners.

The new Gustafsson & Sjogren set is offered in an individually crafted presentation box, which utilizes svepask technique. It is made of birch wood colored with natural pigments. Finally, the box is covered with a high grade natural wax and polished to a deep finish.
