Stepan Sarpaneva has become famous for his beautiful designed watches and the intriguing moon phase. Today Sarpaneva releases a new version of the Korona K3 in white gold.
After the first series of the Korona, with the K1, K2 and K3 Moon Phase, Stepan Sarpaneva launched the new Korona in red gold and white gold. This new Korona didn’t feature the infamous moon phase (or face?) yet, but it which was used for a limited set of cuff links and the Korona Moonshine. The moon phase first appeared in the new Korona Harvest Moon, a black DLC version, and now in the new Korona K3 in white gold.
For this new version, Sarpaneva made a new dial, moon wheel and outer dial. Another difference with the previous new Korona series, is that the hands are now polished. The case is still the same beautiful scalloped case. According to Stepan the blue dial is DLC coated and is called “Taivaankansi” dial (or cope of heaven in English).
Sarpaneva sent these photos and says it’s difficult to capture it well, because the dial changes color in different angles and lighting. Here is another wrist shot Stepan sent.
At Baselworld I will visit Sarpaneva and make some more photos. One thing needs to be said… it’s a limited edition of 10 pieces only!
