As the son of jewellery designer Pentti Sarpaneva, and nephew of the internationally acclaimed designer and artist Timo Sarpaneva, it was always the case that Stepan’s career would take a creative direction. Educated at the Finnish School of Watchmaking and then WOSTEP, Sarpaneva (the brand) was formed in Helsinki, Finland, in 2003. Inspired by his time at manufactures including Piaget, Parmigiani, Vianney Halter and Christophe Claret, Stepan demonstrates his passion for the craft in each watch to come out of the workshop.

The Korona K0 has undergone several iterations throughout its lifetime, with this Northern Lights Limited Edition piece inspired by the naturally occurring lights at high altitude regions, in the northern hemisphere. The Northern Lights K0 is based on Sarpaneva’s K0 sports/dive watch, featuring the same angular 46mm case - handcrafted in Stepan’s Helsinki-based workshop - and screw-down crown, placed at 4 o’clock. This example, boasts an eye-catching luminous green dial, limited to only eight pieces.

The luminous material is a hardened composite, developed by Black Badger Advanced Composites and Canada-based Ambient Glow Technology, for Sarpaneva. A luminous plate sits beneath the open-worked, scalloped portion of the dial, ensuring strong visibility in low light. Large, highly-legible, dot hour indices and hands are filled with generous amounts of Super-LumiNova, which also glows green.

Sarpaneva favours the use of Soprod’s self-winding A10 in his watches, extensively modified to suit his requirements for each piece, beating at a rate of 28,800 A/h. The movement is rhodium-plated and carries perlage-finishing throughout, with a power-reserve of 42 hours. At 6 o’clock, Sarpaneva’s familiar stylised moonphase complication can be seen.

This Korona K0 Northern Light Edition is accompanied by its original box and paperwork. The watch was recently serviced by Sarpaneva, in 2020. It comes with a service guarantee from Sarpaneva.

Viewings can be arranged in Central London by appointment.
