While not traditionally known for boasting famed watchmakers like some other countries, Finland has undoubtedly found its way onto the map thanks to Sarapeneva - one of the most unique and distinctive independent watchmakers in the industry. Launched in 2011, the K3 Northern Star has seen several iterations over its long history in Sarpaneva’s catalog, but the example we have here is perhaps one of the most stunning. Boasting Sarpaneva’s 42mm “Korona” case in stainless steel with all of the brand’s signature design elements such as sharp angles and smooth curves that are combined with angular recesses and protruding pieces, it is a timepiece imbued with Sarpaneva’s distinguished aesthetic. Of course, like so many of Sarpaneva’s incredible timepieces, the K3 Northern Star features a beautiful dial, with this example featuring a rose-colored guilloche dial with blue sleketon indices that are createdusing two sandwiched layers atop the dial, and a double-moon complication that is only revealed through the aperture at 6 o’clock which reveals Sarpaneva’s iconic angry moon face.
