The very first Sarpaneva watches were made in the home of Stephan Sarpaneva, using a metal lathe in his kitchen. In 2003 he moved his workshop to the old cable factory by the Helsinki seaside.
Stephan Sarpaneva was born in 1970 to a Finnish family with a long heritage of craftsmanship. Son of jewellery designer Pentri Sarpaneva, and nephew to Finland’s renowned product designer Timo, it was perhaps inevitable that Stephan would grow into some sort of artist, or artisan.
Stephan likes to work in steel…and his watches are very special indeed.
My friends Jodie and Alan visited his workshop to show us some of the beautiful work.
All Sarpaneva watches are designed by Stephan himself…exceptional timepieces intended for exceptional people.
