Nordic Seasons – Gold

So the big excitement for GoS Watches for this year's BaselWorld edition will be the unveiling of their new Nordic Seasons - Gold.

This new piece will have a five day power reserve!  It also represents the first piece in the GoS collection that will utilize the the new GoS Damascus steel movement which is based on the Technotime TT718.  This movement is manually wound, beating at 4hz (28,800) with a double barrel which makes the five day power reserve possible.  The movement is modified with manufactured finished Damascus's steel bridges utilizing Johan Gustafson's hand forged Damascus steel.

The case of the Nordic Seasons - Gold is (yes you guessed it) utilizing gold in addition to the now "standard issue" Damascus steel.  It offers a wonderful interplay of red gold reflecting beautifully within the backdrop of Damascus steel.

The crown is file worked to provide improved grip, and subtly including nine indentations on each side as the number nine is significant in Norse mythology.
