Awards Go to Sarpaneva Korona K3 Black Moon Watch

Jan 05, 2010
Having already won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for the communication design, the Sarpaneva Korona K3 Black Moon limited edition watch is now honored to receive two Good Design awards by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. The timepiece, created in a limited edition of just 20 pieces, is sure to enjoy great success among watch collectors and connoisseurs.

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 central stainless steel winding rotor has a white gold mass for added weight. The 25-jewel movement, with the balance frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, gives an advantage of a 42-hour while power reserve.

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.
