Gustafsson and Sjogren Lapland Ice and Lapland Sky Watches - Breath of Scandinavia

Aug 27, 2010
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 and hands, 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.

The dial of the new Lapland Ice watch as well as that of the Lapland Sky is embraced by a bewitching case, which features the dimension of 44 mm x 12 mm. On the front side it is assembled with a top quality sapphire crystal. Its back side, meanwhile, is equipped with a mineral glass.

Each model presented relies on the ETA caliber 6498-1 movement. It incorporates bridges featuring Geneva Stripes decoration. The caliber is also equipped with a screw balance and a swan neck regulator, which turn it into a chronometer-grade movement.

The new Gustafsson & Sjogren watches are teamed with reindeer leather straps, created by the esteemed Sami artisan Christine Utsi.

The release of the timekeepers is limited to five pieces only: two for the uncolored Lapland Ice version and three for the blue-purple Lapland Sky interpretation.
