The beautifully designed watch has been inspired by the bleak Finnish winter. The zest of the watch is its moon phase indicator. The one-of-kind relieved dial lets the whole moon phase cycle to be admired, along with the elusive new-moon period. The dial of the watch demonstrates a hand-performed engraving that repeats the expression carved into the oxidized silver moon discs.
The stainless steel case of the Korona K3 Black Moon watch measures 44mm in diameter and features a black DLC coating. The heart of the watch is a self-winding Soprod A10 movement modified by the brand for the moon phase complication.
The Sarpaneva Korona K3 Black Moon limited edition watch is presented in a hardwood case that displays the timepiece in a vertical position. The watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, also goes with a hand-bound book, entitled “Black is the Moon”, with eerie black and white illustrations. The book tells the tale of Lilith, a she-demon that gets her power from the new moon to bewitch and prey upon unsuspecting men.
