The Varing

From GoS -

This is the latest from the dynamic duo at GoS, Johan Gustafsson and Patrik Sjögren.  Inspired and named for a dynamic viking leader, Väring, this will be the talk of BaselWorld for many.  Now in fairness, GoS can no longer really be referred to as a newcomer, but this latest piece is special for a few reasons.  It is the first GoS watch to utilize some bronze parts in addition to their world-renowned damascus stainless steel.  Bronze is a metal that was used extensively by the vikings.  While steel was what you used to make weapons, bronze was preferred for more everyday items, particularly the decorative ones.
