German independent Kudoke creates its first inhouse movement


German independent watchmaker Kudoke will unveil its first inhouse movement at this week’s Baselworld and has put it to work immediately in two new models: Kudoke 1 and Kudoke 2.

The company and its founder Stefan Kudoke are best-known for handmade skeletonized dials, but the new Kaliber 1 movement will be used in closed dial models.

Kudoke 1 is a three-hand watch with a small second sub dial at 9 o’clock. It comes in a 39mm steel case with onion crown and a clear sapphire case back exposing the movement. It is priced at $7,360.

Kudoke 2 (pictured top) adopts the same bright white dial in a steel case, but its key feature is a moonphase at 12 o’clock, which takes the price to €7,807 (US price is not available).

Watches are made in very small quantities, which is why Kudoke has only three retail partners in North America: Martin Pulli Fine Jewelry and Watches in Philadelphia and Passion Fine Jewelry in Solano Beach, California and online-only Watchbuys.com.
