Sarpaneva is a Finnish watch brand founded by Stepan Sarpaneva in 2003 in Helsinki. Stepan was born in 1970 into the well-known craftsman and designer family Sarpaneva. In 1994 he started his career as watchmaker, after graduating from the Finnish School of Watchmaking and also studying at WOSTEP in Switzerland. Before starting his own company Stepan specialized in complicated timepieces.
Today Stepan handcrafts each watch at his workshop in Helsinki. Due to the unique style of his watches, they are “#NOTFOREVERYONE” as it says on their website. Sarpaneva’s most popular models are from the Korona line.
