Gustafsson & Sjogren Stockholm Watch
Here are some prototype images of the watch that Swedish watch brand Gustafsson & Sjogren (GoS) wanted to make fromt he start. This will be what the upcoming "Stockholm" model watch will look like. Emphasizing the core strength of the brand's talent - Damascus steel (and heavy metal looks). With a Damascus steel out ring and hands, the face of the watch looks beautiful being mother-of-pearl. A single model with have a blue Lapis Lazuli dial. I am really impressed by how it came out even in rough pictures such as this. You can see GoS's signature subsidiary seconds hand that spins like a pinwheel. Damascus steel is once again uses for the watch crown (not in place yet here).
I am not 100% sure, but I think the brand is working on a new case - and that this model is just a prototype.
The Stockholm will be a very limited edition watch. There will be just 5 pieces. The movement is also very special and I don't think GoS was able to get very many of them. GoS acquired a batch of NOS (new old stock) Alpina 592R manually wound Swiss movement and modified them with a Damascus steel plate. While these images are preliminary, it looks like the Stockholm is really going to propel GoS to a new level when it is released in 2011.
