After the incredible success of the award-winning watch KUDOKE 2 presented last year, Stefan Kudoke now introduces an enchanting limited edition of this model in 2020.
While the original KUDOKE 2 shines with a silver-white dial, this year‘s limited edition boasts a new galvano-anthracite dial that evokes the night sky of the extraordinary 24-hour display at 12 o‘clock. This watch face changes dramatically from light grey to black and white, depending on lighting conditions.
The hand-engraved, domed sky disc is galvanically treated in an elaborate process with the colors of yellow gold and black and white rhodium. Polished hands together with applied rhodium-plated chapter rings form the frame that is at once contrasting and consonant with the nocturnal tones of this very special piece in the KUDOKE HANDwerk line.
Visible through the sapphire crystal case-back is a new version of the manual winding KALIBER 1-24h movement. The hand-finished movement is presented in white rhodium, a stark inversion of the standard caliber traditionally finished in yellow gold.
The balance bridge, also finished in white rhodium, bears the quintessential infinity mark of the HANDwerk series, but on a background that is hand-hammered and hand-finished.
Matching the year, only 20 pieces of this special watch are available worldwide. The limited edition model is priced at 8,665 EUR (excl. VAT) as is the original KUDOKE 2.
