This collaboration between Sarpaneva and Moomin features a limited edition of 75 pieces celebrating 75 years of Moomins, the central characters in a series of books and a comic strip by Swedish-Finn illustrator and writer Tove Jansson.
This automatic wound wristwatch features three-layered skeletonized dials with 8 hand-painted Swiss Super-Luminova® emission colours in varying order creating unique combinations.
The Case and Dial
The case measures 38.7 mm in diameter and 8.9 mm in thickness. It comes in 3 different colored hands variants, limited to 25 pieces each. The case is a typical 3 piece construction with a rounded bezel and tapered lugs.
With 8 different Swiss Superluminova colours hand-painted on a 3-part skeleton steel dial, which gives the watch a unique colour combination.
The idea of adding color to the dial which is to add the twist to the dial, since the comic is always in the black and white.
The final dial is multi layered with a vibrant colored superluminova background.
The watch uses a Swiss made Soprod A10 Calibre, which beats at 28800 mph (4 Hz) and has a 42 hour power reserve. The automatic movement is used on several other brands including Sinn and Stowa.
The watch is priced at €6200 (VAT 24%) and €5000 (VAT 0%) outside the EU. It’s of course a fun watch, preferably for those who are fans of the comics and watch lovers themselves. The dial is intriguing and conceptually refreshing. In terms of wearability, the thin under 9 mm size and 38.9 mm diameter makes for a comfortable daily wear.
