Sarek Frost

Inspired by frosty works of art on wintery window panes, the GoS Sarek Frost is offered in two dial options, Midnight Blue or Ice Blue. Both feature a sunray finish enlivened with an artistic representation of frost paired with a bewitching sapphire crystal hour track. Housed in a new stainless steel case measuring 41.5mm in diameter, the Sarek Frost tastefully combines highly polished and satin-finished surfaces. A Swiss automatic movement completes this horological ensemble. It is produced by Manufacture La Joux and personalised to GoS’s exacting requirements.

The typical Swedish summer is characterised by everlasting days, while the winter months are accompanied by perpetually dark nights. Likewise, the balmy temperatures of July eventually give way to the biting cold of December. To those individuals more accustomed to temperate climates, this extreme weather may elicit feelings of unease, however, for Swedish-born Patrik Sjögren, a Master Watchmaker and the owner of GoS, it seems quite normal. Indeed, he has grown accustomed to the unique climate of his home nation. Sweden’s unique climate, along with its remarkable flora and fauna, has provided a rich source of inspiration for the brand, manifest with its distinctive range of timepieces.

In 2016, GoS released the inaugural Sarek, a name that honours the landscape of the Sarek National Park located in the north of Sweden. This watch proved a resounding success and over subsequent years, GoS has released further versions of the model. Now, there is a new Sarek and the brand’s latest generation of nature-themed watches. These timepieces incorporate a number of refinements while still retaining the elegant, smooth lines of the former model.

Sweden’s vast landscape provides the perfect antidote to the hubbub of city life. There is an absence of distractions, just nature presented in all of its many splendid forms. Inspired by the natural phenomena in his midst, Patrik has repeatedly sought to replicate it in horological form. This time, Patrik´s inspiration came from a weathered wooden cottage in the countryside to the west of Stockholm in which he spent his early years. The windows of this cottage, framed in sturdy wood, were fitted with an inner extra window during winter to better fend off the biting chill. But this safeguard against the cold had its own charm: it transformed the glass into a canvas for frost and ice.

Patrik's desire to capture the enchantment of those frosted windows from his youth led to a unique watch dial. It's a dial that mirrors the randomness of frost and ice patterns, with the enduring charm of an icy frame serving as indexes.

GoS has a long tradition of working with like-minded parties who share the same passion for craftsmanship and creativity. However, finding a dial manufacturer and suppliers willing to tackle the intricate task of crafting the sapphire ice and frost details proved to be a challenging endeavor. It took nearly a year before manufacturing could be started with a total of five collaborating Swiss artisans that were selected for their specialist knowledge. Each artisan plays an instrumental role in the making of the various dial components, with the curved and polished sapphire pieces being the most demanding to manufacture.

The dials encompass a sunray finish, along with glossy transparent and matte white hues, recreating the sparkling, shimmering appearance of frost. An hour track encircles the dial, but unusually it is formed of 12 sections of sapphire crystal, incorporating Swiss Super-LumiNova® and presented in three-dimensional form. This is a first for GoS and, to the brand’s best knowledge, the first time it’s ever been employed in the watch industry. The spaces positioned in between each block of sapphire denote the hours. By using sections of sapphire, the dial masterfully plays with light, reinforcing the icy theme.
