Tonight in Geneva, the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève hosted the watch industry for the much anticipated GPHG awards ceremony.
Stefan Kudoke won the “Petite Aiguille” Watch Prize – with the Kudoke 2.
I already introduced the KUDOKE 1 to you during Baselworld here
and Brad wrote an excellent review on the Kudoke 1 here:
The Kudoke 1 is a straightforward, time-only watch with three hands and nothing else.
Essentially the Kudoke 1 with a day and night display, the Kudoke 2 lost the sub-seconds at 9 o'clock and gained a rotating 24-hour disc at 12 o’clock, creating an ex-pleasing symmetry on the dial. Both, Kudoke 1 and Kudoke 2 share the same movement. A module mechanism mounted on the dial side of KALIBER 1 facilitates a 24-hour indication at 12 o'clock, At first glance the eye is caught by the rotating domed sky disk - hand engraved and electroplated in gold, white and black rhodium it indicates the hour of day or night. The golden triangle on the discs corresponds with the hour circle. The disk is done by an artisan in Glashütte.
