Sarpaneva Korona K0 Watch - Fully Unconventional

Jun 24, 2010
The Sarpaneva Korona K0 watch, created by Finnish high-end independent watchmaker Stepan Sarpaneva, has nothing to do with conventional or anything one would expect to see.

Having worked for a number of Swiss watchmaking companies, including Piaget, Parmigiani, Christophe Claret and Vianney Halter, the watchmaker created the Sarpaneva Korona collection that has been highly appreciated by watch lovers due to its exceptional, one-of-a-kind timepieces.

The Sarpaneva Korona K0 watch is characterized by the supreme quality and craftsmanship. The 46mm-in-diameter case of the watch is sculptured in Grade 2 Titanium. The case construction boasts 200-meter water-resistance.

The Korona K0 stands out from the crowd due to its amazing spider-web-inspired dial that is crafted from black diamond-coated stainless steel. You glance will be arrested by the diver's timer ring at the outer edge of the dial.

The timer ring, that is Imperial Blue diamond-coated, is incorporated right into the movement itself, so all the functions are set with help of the only crown. The manually adjust the timer ring, it is necessary to move the crown to the first position.

The Imperial Blue timer ring creates an eye-appealing contrast to the matte finish of the titanium case.

The heart of the Sarpaneva watch is a modified Soprod A10 calibre. The 25-jewel automatic movement is operating at a frequency of 28, 800 vibrations per hour and gives an advantage of a 42-hour power-reserve.

The face of the watch is shielded by a 1.5mm saphire crystal, provided with anti-reflective coating and with SARPANEVA printed onto it. The dial features lumed circles for hour indices, while the minutes are shown on the timer ring. The rhodium-plated hands are also Superluminova-coated.

The Sarpaneva Korona K0 watch is presented on a rubber strap. The timepiece is expected to be available in the beginning of 2011.
