The partnership between the bladesmith Johan Gustafsson and watchmaker Patrik Sjögren aims toprovide truly unique watches, created with inspiration from the cold north of Scandinavia and theancient Swedish tradition in metallurgy.

GoS proudly presents - Winter - the last edition the Nordic Seasons series of watches designed with inspirationfrom the rich contrasts of the Nordic seasons. The theme for the Winter dial is ice. Ice is perceived as blue whenlight passes through it because it blocks red light. The shade is determined by the thickness of the ice, i.e. thethicker the ice the more saturated blue color.

The dial is created in tempered pattern welded steel, also known as damascus steel, which has been hand forgedin Johan Gustafsson's unique Explosion pattern. Patrik Sjögren then treats the surface and gives it an exacttempering to give it a lustrous ice blue color that change nuance depending on light conditions, reflections andviewing angles. The contrasting hands in solid white gold are highly legible on the blue dial.

Nordic Seasons - Winter
The Nordic Series are the first GoS watches to feature a case in damascus steel and the design is based on theprevious GoS cases with a focus to highlight the damascus steel features. One unique feature of the GoS case isthe larger diameter of the case back and bezels, which we use to highlight the curved surface of the damascussteel case core as the steel pattern is mirrored in the highgloss polished finish.

Another unique feature is the damascus steel bezel inset that frames the dial. The trademark oversize crown indamascus steel has a larger diameter than previous GoS models but the height has been reduced to increaseoverall wearability as the case core is 45mm.

The hands of the Nordic Seasons are made in solid gold and have the GoS sword shape that premiered in theStockholm model. An index ring with markers with similar shapes to match the hands. All hands and index ringsare hand finished with polished bevels.

All Nordic Seasons are equipped with a strap in black soft nubuck as the matte surface of the straps blends wellwith the damascus steel finish. These GoS straps are handmade and are fastened with screwed lugs and astainless steel GoS buckle.
