Sarpaneva x Moomin: Stepan Sarpaneva Celebrates 75 Years Of Moomin With This Scandinavian Fantasy For The Wrist

Stepan Sarpaneva has launched Sarpaneva x Moomin for the 75th anniversary of Moomin. As I grew up in Scandinavia, please allow me to take a quick trip down memory lane with regard to this interesting watch, which has been shortlisted in the Petite Aiguille category of November 2020’s Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. Moomin Valley is a place where melancholy reigns. It is a place where things are fair, but sprinkled with charismatic, uncontrollable, and at times annoying characters.

Hands-On: The Prop Watches of Tenet

In terms of functionality, the red model is meant to count up and the blue meant to count down. I will admit, I had some difficulty operating this aspect of the watch, even with the aid of the film’s own production designer walking me through it. The digital display is activated via the crown.

Without the backlight, the blue model presents as more of a turquoise blue, but when lit up, it is a deeper, stronger  blue. The red is more standard in appearance.
