Sarek Ladies - a Swedish national treasure on your wrist
Damascus steel is generally thought of as being raw and unpolished. However, GoS has shown that it is possible
to manufacture elegant and exclusive watches from our hand forged steel and we are proud to announce the first
GoS ladies watch.
The Sarek Ladies is the first ever women's watch with a damascus steel dial. Johan Gustafsson has a unique ability
to extract natural vibrant colors from his hand forged steel, which we use in the Sarek to the fullest. The idea of
making watches based on a National Park was initiated and developed by Patrik Sjogren and Johan Gustafsson
during the winter of 2015/2016 and introduced with a prototype of a Sarek men's watch during Baselworld 2016.
GoS then continued to develop the men's watch but also started to work on a ladies model. The ladies model
shares some of the Viking inspired details that were introduced with the men's Sarek while adding new details
such as the strap screws. The elliptic grooves on the case ring which GoS premiered on the men´s Sarek have been
made more elegant and the whole case is high gloss polished. Another striking difference us the index markers of
Sarek Ladies, which opened to show the colored steel below. The slightly sloped case interior provides more light
to the indexes and provides a surface on which the colored damascus steel is reflected.

The patterns and tempered natural coloring of the Sarek damascus steel dials are inspired by the landscape of a
valley in Sarek national park in Swedish Lapland. Sarek National Park is regarded as a Swedish national treasure
and is often referred to as Europe's last true wilderness area. It hosts the largest Moose (Alg) 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 is matched only by the breathtaking beauty of its peaks, valleys, and
fast-running mountain rivers.

The hands of the Sarek Ladies are high gloss polished in a Dauphine finish with a center ridge to emphasize our
inspiration from Viking arrow and spear heads. Sarek is powered by a Soprod A10 movement, which is equipped
with a custom GoS triskele rotor, finished in satinized dark grey with am additional rhodinized counter weight.
The Sarek Ladies is available with black Sarek Moose leather strap or optional pastel colored straps in highquality
leather, all fitted with a stainless steel folding clasp.

Shapes from Viking sword handles were the main source of inspiration when we designed the new GoS crown.
The result is a unique crown that is highly ergonomic.
The retail price of Sarek is US$7,800 + applicable taxes and the first deliveries are estimated to mid November
2016. Like all GoS watches, every Sarek dial has a unique pattern and coloring but all will share with the same
character. Clients can also request alternative colors when ordering directly from GoS.

Men´s Sarek – first production Sarek watches im June 2016

Sarek – a Swedish national treasure on your wrist
The latest GoS model 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 we've 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 that inspired us when we created our first GoS hands.
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-running mountain rivers.
