“The Flying Finn“ is a nickname given to several Finnish athletes. They all had high speed in common, but not all of them were involved into motorsport.

Paroni was the first Flying Finn watch created. It was purely made to honour Jarno Saarinen. The Fying Finn models pay tribute not only for our motorsport heros, but also for sports heroes and the brave ones who has “sisu”.


The case design was heavily inspired by motorsport. The 44mm case size is a statement and gives more freedom to design. It is the thinnest of S.U.F cases ever created to wear flat and comfy. The elements are very close to Sarpaneva K1 case but it has more status on the bezel.

A chain sprocket milled in Finland was made by traditional tools and maybe the most difficult part to get right. A new open dial design and large handset made this sporty watch a real statement. Small batches  were created and even few unique pieces. 

Multiple dial colors were made with steel and DLC coated cases.

Flying Finn dials

In 2022 the Flying Finn made a return with 2 new versions: VB77 and FF-S.

VB77 was designed together with Finnish F1 driver Valtteri Bottas. This watch has a multi color skeletonized dial with blued “Sarpaneva” hands and a special date wheel where 7 was replaced with Valtteri’s racing number 77.

The FF-S was a little bit more casual in terms of colors in the dial. As a racing watch it has some traditional racing colors as well accompanied with shiny steel.
