Stefan Kudoke – Independent Master Watchmaker

Stefan Kudoke started studying the art of watchmaking from scratch. Two skilled master in this handcraft taught him to understand and love the mechanical process of time showing.

Even though he does not have a long family tradition in watchmaking and never before any closer contact, he finished his studies with honours. Later on he refined his skills at the manufacture "Glashütte Original" in the studio for complications and prototypes and after that in the service department for "Breguet", "Blancpain" and "Omega" in New York. But that is not the end of the story.

When receiving his master craftsman certificate in watchmaking at the age of 22 his desire for knowledge was still evident. Successful studies of economics insired the young master watchmaker to apply himself to his passion - to design and create own watches. This point represents the foundation stone of the brand KUDOKE which is characterized by a fascination for the exceptional and individual manifested in the extraordinary design of his watches as well as the overall aim to preserve traditional watchmaking skills.
