  • Catalogue Essay

    Coming from a heritage of Finnish artisans of fine jewellery, Stepan Sarpaneva is the son of acclaimed Finnish jewellery designer Pentti Sarpaneva. With rich experience working with prestigious watchmakers including Vianney Halter, Parmigiani and Christophe Claret, Sarpaneva created his own brand in 2003 to embark on a journey to create his vision of horology.

    In 2020, S.U.F Sarpaneva Helsinki celebrates the 75th anniversary of the popular Finnish comic Moomin illustrated by illustrator Tove Jansson. The collaboration was produced in a total of 75 pieces made in three variants in either blue, steel or gold hands. Inspired by the original black and white illustration by Jansson, Sarpaneva injected his inventiveness and technical finesse to the fairytale of Moominvalley. The timepiece paid more than just a homage to the cartoon but surely a statement to the industry of implementing Super-Luminova as a form of art instead of applying it to tell time in the dark. The skeletonized dial is achieved via three layers. The first layer consists of a beautifully hand-painted Technicolour Super-Luminova dial as the background, a hand carved motif of Moomin topped with a carved stainless steel minute track. Extremely clever and magical, the illumination of the dial is brought to life in a jaw-dropping explosion of color. Finished with an organic touch, the timepiece is paired with an olive green textile strap that blends harmoniously with the mysterious landscape of the Moomin creation. Numbered 18 out of a limited edition of 25 pieces, this whimsical example is offered in absolute pristine condition with its complete accessories.
