Korona K0 Seasons

I hope to clap eyes on these in person in a few weeks, but for now I will rely on the words provided by Sarpaneva -

Finland is a country of brutal honesty. When we say we have four seasons, it means we have four seasons. In autumn Mother Nature explodes in colour, but in winter she totally freezes over. In spring she slowly awakes, and in summer she doesn't sleep at all.
To salute these stark contrasts, Stepan Sarpaneva created four distinct watches that keep glowing through the cycle of seasons. Korona K0 Seasons is Sarpaneva’s second collaboration with James Thompson of Black Badger Advanced Composites.

If I were picking favorites, it would be the Summer - which reminds me of long winter nights spent in Turku and Helsinki waiting for Mid Summer's Eve ; )
