Finnish watchmaker Stepan Sarpaneva is known for his high-quality wristwatches. The most recent novelty of the year was the S.U.F Helsinki Vetehinen -diver watch, which we wrote earlier. The limited edition (26 pieces per color) published in four different colors was a commercial success. In addition to a limited edition batches, Mr. Sarpaneva produced individual pieces with different color dials, which also went to hot stones.
Under Baselworld, Sarpaneva had a good news, as Vetehinen gets a new 26 pieces in a stunning green tone. We got to know the novelty quickly at Zürich Airport and I almost dare to claim that this is the most successful version of the Vetehinen series. The chosen green tone varies according to light and makes Vetehinen the actual style tag, so it is versatile in different styles.
The new Vetehinen is on show in Baselworld and will be seen later in the spring at The Watch Show Finland. S.U.F Helsinki watches are sold by Sarpaneva in addition to selected dealers.
