Sarpaneva Korona K3 Black Moon

The Sarpaneva Korona K3 has a darkly distinct design. This moonphase watch by Finnish watchmaker Stepan Sarpaneva features an enigmatically stylized moon face which has been hand-engraved. The moon phase indicator shows a complete moon phase cycle through its “relieved dial”.

The uniformly black appearance perhaps hinting at the long dark winters in Finland.
The K3 has a lattice-like skeletonized dial revealing sections of the Soprod A10 automatic movement within.

Limited to 20 pieces, each one comes with a hand-bound book “Black is the Moon” recounting the legend of Lilith the seductive temptress that preyed on men during the new moon.

The Sarpaneva Korona K3 Black Moon won a 2009 Red Dot Design Award for communication design.
