Sarek Trollius   Watch / Info inquiry

The Sarek Trollius introduce another layer of artistic complexity with an engraved piece and gold accents. The watch is a result of a collaboration with Swedish artisan Anders Hedlund, who is regarded to be one of the world´s best knifemakers and engravers. 

Anders Hedlund make knives that are loved by collectors all around the world. He mainly exhibit at special invitation-only events, primarily in the US, and is one of the exclusive knife makers to exhibit at the bi-annual Solvang invitational knife show, Solvang California. He is also a regular exhibitor at East Coast Custom knife show, which was held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2018. He rarely competes with his knives nowadays but still has a total of 20 wins in different classes of the Swedish annual championships. He has won several awards at international knife shows too and received the "Best in Show" award at the Solvang Invitational custom Knife show 2018. Last year Anders was also was awarded the "Wooden Sword award" presented by the book "Knives 2018", which is the most desired award among knife makers, similar to the Oscars of film making.

Anders suggested the use of polished 24k gold pins, which is something premium knifemakers use to embellish their work. The working-name of the new watch became Sarek Trollius as Trollius Europaeus is a flower with yellow buds that is common in the Sarek National Park of northern Sweden. The scrollwork for the watch is similar to the petals of the Trollius flower and the gold pins emulate the yellow buds. Patrik Sjögren learned the technique to be able to introduce gold pins onto the dial as well.

GoS introduced the Sarek collection in 2016 with dial patterns that emulated the elaborate and ever-changing waterways in the Sarek National Park. A number of variations and bespoke elements have since then been introduced as well as dials that resemble the famous northern lights of Lapland. For Sarek Trollius, both the dial and the rotor counterweight are made from Johan Gustafsson´s dense and organic damascus steel. The dial is in Johan's wildflower pattern and the rotor is a cutout from a traditional ladder woodgrain damascus. Sarek Trollius is the first GoS watch to feature engraved movement parts.

Premium tapered strap and Swiss made deployant buckle
GoS watch straps normally are made from moose leather sourced by GoS. However, the Sarek collections dress watch qualities are sometimes better matched with a tapered strap in a more glossy leather. We now offer alternatives to further personalize the watch in both leather qualities and stitching to match or contrast the dial´s color range. The deployant buckles are Swiss made and supplier´s patented and elegant snap lock mechanism has been proven to be flawless by major premium watch brands.
