2012/10/02 - Sarpaneva the new Korona K0 Wuoksi


Sarpaneva Korona K0 Wuoksi is inspired by a Finnish legend of a village smith whose daughters were snatched down into the murky mansions of a lustful underwater creature Näkki. The smith descended into the watery depths to rescue his daughters, but unable to reach the bottom,
he had to turn back.

The anxious father wrought himself a waterproof time-iron that would be his salvation at depths he had never known before. But still he couldn’t save his daughters, not until he wrought a machine that also reveals the phase of the moon. He waited for the moment, when the sun and the moon were not aligned, for that was the time when the tide is as its weakest. He was now ready to dive again to the bottom of the lake, for the sake of his daughters.

The old Finnish word ‘Wuoksi’ has a double meaning both ‘high tide’ and ‘for the sake of something’. It reminds us of the smith, who dived into the depths for the sake of love.

Korona K0 Wuoksi is an executive class sports watch wrought by Finnish watchmaker Stepan Sarpaneva. Founded on the success of Korona K0, this special edition features a moonphase complication instead of diver’s bezel. Wuoksi introduces a special skeleton dial and a revolving evening sky disc which reveals a peek of the iconic Sarpaneva moon face.

Every Sarpaneva Korona K0 Wuoksi is handcrafted at Sarpaneva’s workshop in Helsinki.

As a very limited edition, every Korona K0 is counted as one of the few.
