Finnish watchmaker Sarpaneva introduces a new version of the Korona K2. The Korona K2 Kaamos is a sporty black version with luminous hands and indexes.

The new Korona K2 Kaamos features the new Korona case that was introduced at Baselworld 2009 as Korona RG/WG and is also used for the new Korona K1. The 42mm case with more pronounced shape, is slightly smaller than the old Korona case. Now the Korona K2 also comes in the new case, but the Korona K2 has some new features.

This DLC coated black version of Korona K2 has a diamond coated case and three-part dial and date disc. The movement is perlage finished followed by black nickel coating. Sarpaneva used luminous hands and marker before on the prototype Korona K0 and now for the first time on a production model.

Kaamos is a Finnish word for the mystical winter period when the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon. During these months the land is cloaked only in a dim veil of light, sinking the whole nation into gloom and depression. Let’s hope this beauty makes life a little bit better.

    1. 42mm That’s where many have been waiting for I guess.
      Great move, love to seeing the new model.

    2. Coming Thursday, Salon de Belles Montres will open in Paris and I’ll make sure to shoot some photos of the new Korona K2 Kaamos!

    3. It’s a breathtaking watch and one of the timepieces that may have the power to stand out for long time to come.
