Gustafsson & Sjögren

Bladesmith Johan Gustafsson and watchmaker Patrik Sjögren have Scandinavian nature and history as a key source of inspiration when designing the GoS watches. Their love for the Scandinavian ethos makes their teamwork come naturally even though their respective crafts are very different in character.

Metal working is always in focus in high end watchmaking but even more so in the watches from Gustafsson & Sjögren. The reason for this is the handforged patternwelded steel made by Johan Gustafsson. The history of patternwelded steel, also known as damascus steel, is very long and the Vikings were among the first cultures to develop this welding technique that made their swords superior to others. Johan Gustafsson has reinvented the ancient techniques and use modern Swedish tools steels to create his own unimitable damascus steel. Patrik Sjögren then manufactures watch parts of the steel. Patrik is able to combine a raw steel finish with highgloss polished surfaces by applying both classic Swiss watchmaking techniques and etching.

The deep passion that Patrik and Johan have for their own crafts and the Scandinavian craft tradition is highly visible in all aspects of the GoS watches. All parts are finished by hand, which means that a lot of time and effort is put into every manufactured part. The result are highly exclusive and unique watches that are made to last. There is nothing in the watch industry that compares to a GoS watch. The whole concept is unique and given the nature of the damascus steel itself, it is not possible to create two identical GoS watches.
