Kaivari Limited Edition – The Truly Elegant Automatic Watch.

Kaivopuisto, Kaivari for short, is the best known park and meeting place in Helsinki, perhaps in all of Finland. May Day picnics and summer concerts in Kaivopuisto have brought together people decade after decade. 

It’s undoubted that over the years more sparkling wine has flowed in Kaivari than in all of the Presidential Independence Day receptions combined. Never underestimate the power of lukewarm bubbly in chilly spring weather, especially when it’s a tradition that the first of May picnic is paired with sleet – and that’s a fact. 

And the park wouldn’t be a park without the trees. The Kaivari trees have had a courtside seat to the hustle and bustle of the city from the 19th century onwards. They have witnessed the peak years of Kaivopuisto Spa (now long gone), the wild May Day celebrations, and of course the gravity-defying hair of the Finnish pop icon Neumann in the golden 1980s.

It all began with a spa.

Many know the park but only few know why the park is called Kaivopuisto, Finnish for ‘Well Park’. It all began in the 19th century with a spa and its beautiful buildings that were built on the southern tip of Helsinki. Even though the golden years of the spa ended with the bombs of WWII, if not sooner, the park had already found its way into people’s hearts. 

The historical trees of Kaivopuisto have always been cherished. But when natural forces intervened and the Aila storm felled an almost 150-year-old linden tree, a unique opportunity presented itself. We were there in a flash to rescue the best pieces of this grand old tree. 

We are proud to say that the tree is getting a new chapter worthy of its history – as Aarni Watches.

Kaivari Limited Edition – One-time opportunity.

It’s a spectacular opportunity to crystallise the long and eventful history of Kaivari into this watch. We are making a special edition of 1 000 Kaivari Limited Edition watches of the linden that once grew in a prime location in Kaivopuisto park.

The design of the watch may just be the most stunning in Aarni’s history. The golden structure of the watch’s case and the wavy design are a definite eye-catcher. The light linden paired with a finely nuanced brown dial make for a stunning pair.

Precise and fascinating automatic movement.

The beating heart of the watch is the Miyota 9015 automatic movement with date function. The movement is thinner than a usual automatic movement making it possible to craft the watch case thin, too. This guarantees that the watch feels comfortable on your wrist. A fascinating detail is the crown: its shape reflects the iconic Kaivopuisto compass.

The watch will be available in two sizes: with a 38 mm and 42 mm case.

Kaivari Limited Edition Watch will be available in October for 489.90€. Join the list and be the first to know when the watch is available.
