Product Details

Day/Night Indication

This watch features his Kaliber 1 movement with an added twist - an indication of day and night through a rotating disk at 12.

This latest version also features an all new dial in black.

Introducing the Kudoke 2

Stefan built upon his already impressive Kudoke 1 by creating a hand engraved, three dimensional 24 hour rotating disk with patterns of the moon, sun and stars.

This disk is then electroplated in multiple colors of gold and black rhodium to create the unique design.

This watch is a beauty.

"In House" in a Different Way

Not only had Stefan completely ignored the gear train and movement design seen so often in other watches, he created something completely fresh with a throwback to British/German pocket watch designs.

In Stefan's own words:

Ages ago I bought an old English pocket watch movement, that lay unused in a drawer for a long time.  One day it fell into my hands again - just as the idea of my own movement began to take shape.

In the past, intensive cooperations between the German and English watchmakers existed - it was the German diplomat and astronomer Hans Moritz von Bruhl who supported English precision watchmaking finally bring it to Saxony and Dresden in Germany.

With my new watch movement I would like to tie in with this tradition and to honor the Old Masters.

Other Features of the Kudoke 2

First, we compliment Stefan in choosing to make a watch with a case diameter of 39 mm, an ideal size for almost every wrist and size that is spot on to fit the character of this watch.

On the front, the black dial features the day/night indication at 12 and the Kudoke badge at 6.  The look is clean, distinctive and clearly shows what "hand made" means.

Flip it over and you'll spend the next hour reviewing a gear train that looks like no other - the design is vertical, and again the elaborate production techniques that Stefan uses on each movement part are clearly evident.

The manually wound movement supports a power reserve of 46 hours, and the Carl Haas balance spring is of chronometer quality.  The movement also features KIF shock protection.

And no Kudoke watch would be complete without a hand engraved balance cock, but what is so interesting in this new movement design is how proportionally large the balance cock is to the movement.


Stefan Kudoke is a member of a very prestigious group of watchmakers - the AHCI or Académie Horlogere des Créateurs Indépendants.

Founded by Svend Andersen and Vincent Calabrese, the AHCI is based in Zurich, Switzerland, and consists of 35 members from around the world whose work has been judged by the academy.

We congratulate Stefan Kudoke on his election to the AHCI.
