Well, it is for those of us in the northern hemisphere. It will be showing up in a much different way for ten fortunate folks, courtesy of GoS.
Not surprisingly, this is the latest release in their Seasons line up. What’s different here (other than color scheme) is the fact that they’re using a different movement, and it’s being released in collaboration with a watch forum:
Gustafsson & Sjögren Watches proudly presents – Winter Nights – a new series of watches that are produced in collaboration with PuristSPro. These are the first GoS watches to feature our own manually wound movement with a 4/5 bridge in solid hand-forged Damascus steel.
The series is strictly limited to 10 pieces and purchased through PuristSPro on a pre-order subscription basis. The price is US$19,000 which is the same as previous GoS top models that did not have our own manufacture movement.
The movement looks to be a pretty interesting one, as it was developed by Martin Braun (of Antoine Martin/MHO). I also like the fact that GoS pushed to have as much real estate to their folded/damascus steel. At the prices these watches command, you definitely want as much of the maker imbued into the piece as possible.
While I really like the looks of the pieces in this line up, let me know in the comments what you think about the folded/damascus steel usage in watches – love it or leave it?

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
