[Press Release] Stefan Kudoke is a master of hand made skeleton watches.
In his latest handmade creation “KudOktopus”, an octopus is recreated within the movement – skeletonized and engraved by hand.
The octopus is wrapped in rose gold, its suction cups in white rhodium.
The remaining movement as well as wheels are galvanised in black rhodium.
With its all-embracing tentacles KudOktopus entangles the steadily swinging balance. Holding wheels and screws tightly it captures the most precious – time.
The mechanical movement(Unitas 6498) of the “KudOktopus” beats at a rate of 18’000 vibrations per hour and has a power reserve of 46 hours. The KudOktopus comes in a stainless steel case of 42 mm diameter protected by sapphire glass on top and back. The strap is made of Alligathor leather and held together by a fold fastener made of stainless steel.
To meet this golden octopus visit Kudoke at Watch Gallery Booth P13 at Baselworld 2011.
