GoS Watches – Lapland Ice & Lapland Sky

GoS presents the Lapland watches, Lapland – Ice and Lapland – Sky, two new designs based on a Damascus steel ladder pattern and Damascus steel index markers. The production is limited to five (5) watches of which two are of the uncolored Ice edition and three in the colored Sky edition. The Lapland dials are etched to enrich the contrasts but while the Lapland Ice dials are uncolored, the dials of the Lapland Sky watches have been given a lustrous blue-purple color to resemble the autumn skies of Lapland.

Lapland – Ice

All Lapland watches are delivered with reindeer leather straps. The straps are made by the highly regarded Sami artisan Christine Utsi who lives in Porjus Lapland, i.e. the northernmost parts of Sweden. She is true to the traditional methods and at the same time embrace new ideas such as applying the ancient techniques into the making of watch straps.

Lapland – Sky

The watches are equipped with a beautifully finished Unitas/ETA 6498 pocket watch movement with Geneva stripe decoration on the bridges. The finishing has been done by the Swiss company Soprod, which also improved the movement to chronometer grade standard with a screw balance and a swan neck regulator.
