Sincere Fine Watches is bringing famed German independent brand Kudoke to Singapore and Malaysia in a move sure to please local collectors. Kudoke gained international acclaim with its GPHG win in 2019; the watchmaker earned the Petite Aiguille award for the Kudoke 2 timepiece. Of course, collectors will have been aware of the brand founded by AHCI member Stefan Kudoke in 2008 for some years now; Stefan runs the business with his wife and partner Ev.
WOW Thailand and Singapore featured an interview with Stefan in 2020, which emerged within a few years of the editors discovering Kudoke watches. For those who think German fine watchmaking is all about Glashutte, Kudoke offers an excellent rejoinder. Kudoke’s base of operations is just outside Dresden, which is the city closest to Glashutte; Stefan worked as a watchmaker at Glashutte Original and Blancpain, with stints at Breguet and Omega as well.
Kudoke watches are today famed for creative skeletonisation, and indeed started that way, fuelled by Stefan’s passion for the art and his recognition of a market gap for such timepieces. This foreshadowed the fine engraving and hand-finishing evident on the brand’s in-house Kaliber 1.
Collectors can discover all the fine details about Kudoke at Sincere boutiques and SHH salons in both Singapore and Malaysia.
