Sarpaneva Supernova

Finnish Watchmaker Stepan Sarpaneva is on the verge of his own stellar explosion with his latest watch called 'Supernova'. An extraordinary evolution in style, complication and design spawned from his Loiste collection. Other than the blued moonphase, the handmade hardened stainless steel watch creates the illusion of a black & white image. A modified ETA automatic movement with his trademark 'Turbini' winding mass visable from the caseback. With the rotor opposing the direction of cutaway view, the winding of the watch creates a kaleidoscope of spinning blades. The artistically skeletonized dial reveals negative space with stylish precision while perfectly blending the cog-style case into the depths of its spiny machined gauges.

An edition of only ten watches priced at 12,500 Euros.

It will be publicly introduced at the upcoming BaselWorld show in Switzerland.
