Stepan Sarpaneva was born in 1970 to a Finnish family with a long heritage of craftmanship. Son of jewellery designer Pentti Sarpaneva, Stepan was brought up to be a talented designer and craftsman. Perfectionism, enthusiasm and an infinite passion for watchmaking inspired Sarpaneva to create watches of his own. In 2003 he founded his own company in Helsinki, Finland where he individually handcrafts each watch at the workshop.
For 25 years, International Watch has been the definitive
authority for all watch-related matters, providing
in-depth reports on all aspects of horology, from
established Swiss watchmaking firms to independent houses
of horology, product reviews, technical stories, wrist
trends, the unique culture of collectors, and more.
