The latest model from Swedish watch brand GoS is named after the most famous National Park in Sweden – Sarek. The GoS Sarek was introduced as a prototype during Baselworld 2016 and has since been produced in a limited pre-production series this past summer. The new Sarek has the largest damascus steel dial the brand has made to date, and is the first GoS watch to feature several new design elements with a subtle Viking inspiration.
The final design presented in this press release displays refinements in the case with an added curved chamfer of the lugs and a curved shape to the case ring. Both the chapter ring and the case ring draw inspiration from authentic Viking bracelets and brooches. This becomes more apparent with the refined case ring. Sarek is also the first GoS model to feature the new GoS crown, which is shaped much like the form of a Viking sword hilt.
The neck of the GoS crown is deeply recessed into the case, thereby securing the crown and mechanism from side impacts. The new GoS hands are high gloss polished in a Dauphine finish with a center ridge which bears a closer resemblance to the Viking arrow and spear heads. Sarek leather straps are made from select Moose leather that has received a special treatment to shrink the grain.
Moose leather is known to be very durable and the treatment adds a nice lustre to the highly visible grain. The Sarek is powered by a Soprod A10 movement that has been customized with a GoS triskele rotor. The dark GoS rotor has a circular satinization as finish and is equipped with an additional rhodinated counter weight, which has polished bevels and satinized surface.
The pattern and natural tempered coloring of the Sarek dial is inspired by the landscape of a valley in Sarek National Park in Swedish Lapland. The Sarek National Park is regarded to be a national treasure of Sweden and often referred to as Europe’s last true wilderness area. It hosts the largest Moose (Älg) in Europe and is also home to 100 glaciers and six of Sweden’s 13 highest peaks. The park is 2000 square kilometers of majestic and untouched wilderness and its remoteness are matched only by the breathtaking beauty of its peaks, valleys and fast-flowing mountain rivers.
The retail price of Sarek is US$7,800 + applicable taxes. Like all GoS watches, the Sarek dial has a unique pattern and coloring but all with the same character. GoS will present dials for selection when ordering a Sarek directly from the workshop and it is also possible to request color alternatives.
