Aarni Limited Edition Watches give the trees the recognition they deserve as the witnesses of history – the stories from the past generations to the present. We are determined to tell their stories and to carry them with us wherever we go.
Aarni is the final, honorable chapter in the story of these city trees.
From the heart of Helsinki.
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.
Many know the park but only few know why the park is called Kaivopuisto, Finnish for “Well Park”.

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.Read the whole story
From the city of Tampere.
Tampere, also known as Manchester of Finland or in short Manse, is jumping into the premier league of big cities with its new city tramline.

Born in the Death Valley.
One of the worst peacetime disasters happened on a Friday morning, July 9th, 1937. A fire caused the ammunition depot explosion in a military island located just 1,5km from Helsinki city centre. 12 people lost their lives and dozens were injured. The area has since been called the Death Valley.
The tragic events have been buried and forgotten for decades. We wanted to find out about the forgotten history and headed a boat towards the island of Vallisaari.What happened on Vallisaari island?

Citizens of Helsinki were rather offended when beloved trees of Mechelininkatu had to be taken down due to roadwork in 2017. The trees played an important role for many people, and had been framing the famous road of Helsinki for many decades.
