The Philip Stein Round Prestige Limited Edition Kudoke is an exclusive collection of skeleton watches equipped with Philip Stein’s own Natural Frequency Technology (NFT).
Watch-lovers and collectors alike will be enthralled by the unique timepieces hand-made by Stefan Kudoke that combine watch-making skills of beauty and perfection with an overall sense of well-being.
The result of a close collaboration between Philip Stein and Stefan Kudoke is a limited edition of 25 unique pieces, each watch an item of handcrafted jewellery distinguished by exemplary technology and transparent beauty.
The truly ground-breaking feature is the meeting of handcraftsmanship with an overall feeling of well-being. Natural Frequency Technology is the name given to the exclusive brand of frequency technology by Philip Stein that is also incorporated into the precious pieces of this collection. This technology uses special frequencies which, based on a transfer of waves, results in the harmonizing and balancing of a person’s human energy flow.
When wearing the watch, an interaction is created between the human energy field and the frequencies of the Philip Stein Limited Edition watch.
With the field of energy activated, the wearer feels more resilient and can deal better with stress. Improved powers of concentration, a deeper sleep and higher levels of general well-being are further welcome benefits from this technology based on natural effects. Inspired by the fact that Earth is the symbol representing the powers of Natural Frequency Technology, Stefan Kudoke created this watch for the Philip Stein Limited Edition.
Each watch mechanism is skeletonised and engraved by Kudoke by hand. The globe shape, symbolising Earth, grew to be the signature feature of this watch-lover’s collection.
Carved from the mechanism’s platinum, creating a 3D optic, the seas appear to be sunken and the continents raised. The whole gradient effect is enhanced by the contrast of yellow gold and black rhodium, a galvanic covering.
Each globe varies slightly in design, each engraving is different. Combined with the highly delicate handcraftsmanship, this ensures that each piece is unique.
A case of high-grade stainless steel surrounds the visibly fascinating inner workings of the Philip Stein Limited Edition watch and a luxurious, black crocodile leather strap completes the stylish effect.

About Stefan Kudoke
Watches have fascinated Stefan Kudoke since he was young and it was clear to him that when he was older, he would become a watch-maker. After his apprenticeship he joined Glashütte Original where he earned a number of awards. He also gained pivotal impulses for his professional development by working with the Breguet, Blancpain and Omega brands in New York. After successfully qualifying as a Master, he then began to design his own watches.
Today, Kudoke is a specialist in the art of skeletonising. By enhancing the beauty of the watch’s mechanism and coordinating it with exquisite design features requiring weeks of hand craftsmanship, he creates unique pieces of art.
A true master of his skill, only very few watchmakers in the world are trained in skeletonising and Kudoke is known to be one of the very best. With great expertise and passion, he pursues his aim of creating not only timekeepers of precision but pieces of art of enduring value at the same time.
