GoS watches the best of two worlds

A unique collaboration between a knife- and a watch maker from Sweden results in GoS watches.

Swedish designers are known all over the world for their pure and original designs.

GoS started off in 2007 as a collaboration between Patrik Sjörgen and Johan Gustafsson, who is one of the best steel and knife makers in the world.
We have since then developed the brand and the watches step-by-step always making sure to keep and strengthen our initial GoS core values:
  • Swedish tradition in metallurgy, dating back to the VIkings
  • Passion for handcraft
  • Designs inspired by Scandinavian nature and history
  • High end watchmaking using hand forged steel
Johan Gustafsson’s smithy is outside Norsholm, which is close to Linköping. This is where he makes the steel both for his own knives and for GoS watches. The GoS workshop is in Linköping, which is a 20 minutes drive from the smithy.

Bifrost Isblå

Bifrost Isblå is the first model in our new Bifrost collection that features Johan Gustafsson’s newly developed “high contrast” stainless damascus steel.
Bifrost is the poetic name of the sacred rainbow bridge in Norse mythology. The rainbow bridge was thought to connect the earth (Midgård) and the realm of the gods (Asgård). GoS tempered damascus
steel dials require natural light to generate their dynamic colors, much in the same way that a rainbow appears only when light shines through the moist air.

Isblå is the first model to be featured in the Bifrost collection and captures the blue nuances that can be found in thick ice. Every watch is a unique piece and is numbered in sequence and every Bifrost model is limited to 25pcs and will be followed by further color themed models.
