By launching its new Stockholm watch
, the Swedish brand Gustafsson & Sjogren
(GoS) joins the stream of limited edition models.
Purity and elegance are two qualities that have become inseparably bound up with the new Gustafsson & Sjogren watch. The issue of the novelty is strictly limited to 5 timepieces
: 4 pieces come equipped with a mother-of-pearl dial and just one piece boasts a dial in blue Lapis Lazuli with small gold pyrites.
On the surface of the dial, the time is reduced to indicating just hours and minutes. Taking care of them are spear-shaped hands, crafted from hand-forged Damascus steel. They cohabit harmoniously with a file-worked and polished index ring, rendered in the same material.
The Swedish watch brand Gustafsson & Sjogren
has recently delivered two extraordinary watches, poetically named Lapland Ice
and Lapland Sky
Inspired by the cold north of Scandinavia, each model strikes the eye by its fascinating mother-of-pearl dial. It is embellished with a wood-grain ladder Damascus pattern
, which is left natural for the Ice interpretation and colored in lustrous blue-purple for the Sky version.
The displays of both Gustafsson & Sjogren watches are completed with hour-markers
, crafted by hand from Damascus steel
. Before assembling the dial, every index has been turned by hand on the watchmakers lathe, polished, etched and then repolished.
Gustafsson & Sjogren watches
represent a collaborative project between Swedish knifesmith Johan Gustafsson
and Swedish watchmaker Patrik Sjogren
. It is Damascus steel that brings together two different objects, a watch and a knife, which at the first sight seem to have nothing in common.
Developed more than thousand years ago, the Damascus steel technique
was originally utilized to produce blades for swords, which demonstrated the exemplary sharpness and strength. Johan and Patrik have teamed up to discover another field of use for this remarkable material: they have agreed to apply this forging technique for manufacturing alluring hand-crafted dials.
