Stepan Sarpaneva, the Finnish independent watchmaker behind the Sarpaneva Watches and S.U.F brands, has just introduced a new version of his killer Vetehinen dive watch. It boasts a staggering purple dial and a handsome bezel that was designed by London-based tattoo artist Mo Coppoletta.

We’re in love with that purple dial!

Review: S.U.F Helsinki Vetehinen, A killer divewatch from an independent brand

S.U.F Helsinki is a small, independent watch brand that produces approximately 100 timepieces each year. S.U.F actually stands for ‘Sarpaneva Uhren Fabrik’, and if you know your independent watch brands and/or watchmakers, that first word should immediately grab your attention. You see, S.U.F is actually the second watch brand of well-respected Finnish watchmaker Stepan Sarpaneva, and, with the launch of Vetehinen, the brand now has its first divewatch.

Lets not mince words, the Vetehinen is handsome.
