A Surprise in Geneva
When we recently arrived in Geneva to visit the AHCI Masters of Horology event, Stefan Kudoke welcomed us with a nice surprise - the new Kudoke 3.
This new watch features an in-house movement construction with a very special dial and time display, all housed in a 39 mm 18K solid red gold (5N) case.
We are now accepting reservations for the first pieces of this watch.
A Four Handed Watch With Two Dials
This watch features a centrally mounted minute hand and three hour hands of different lengths.
As the time advances, the correct hour is shown on three circular scales. When the arm of one hour hand reaches the end of the hour scale, the next longer or shorter hour hand appears on the left side of the scale to show the correct hour.
Hours 2, 6, and 10 are shown on both sides of the hour scale before the current hour hand begins its journey across the scale.
The dial is actually two dials made in two levels - a lower silver plated dial with the hour scale, and a rhodinized upper dial with an attached Kudoke logo plate, The upper dial is attached by four screws at 10, 20, 40, and 50 which also serve as minute indicators.
Stefan uses flamed tempered blued steel hour and minute hands to complement the rhodium and silver dial finishes.
"In House" in a Different Way
Stefan worked with Richard and Maria Habring to create a calibre that was 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.
